You can export an entire database so that it may be imported into another server later. The Export Database page prompts you to select the name of the database you wish to export, followed by a list of options specifying which objects to export. The objects that may be exported are:
Check this option when you are creating a complete backup of the database and need to save the name and file properties of the database. Note that if you later import this into a different server, you made need to change the path to the database file in the .sql file to match the target server's file system.
Check this option to export the table and column structure of the database. This can be imported into the same or a different database later.
Check this option to export the actual data rows contained in the database tables.
Check this option to export the stored procedures in the database.
You may also choose a few options that determine how the .sql export file is generated. Drop commands are used to explicitly delete pre-existing objects by the same name before attempting to create new objects during Import. Including descriptive comments makes the .sql file more readable, although slightly larger.
Click the "Export" button to export the selected objects to a file. Be sure to use the .sql extension when saving this file (place the filename in double quotes, for example "myDBExport.sql").
