Next release -> will include Views, User Stored-Procedures, and Database triggers.

Basically, this completes the basic need to script out most object needed to rebuild a table, or series of tables.  It takes into account “Identity”, Computed, and User Defined objects.  Also, I included the ability to alter(rename) your scripted destination tablename, and index objects.

For testing these functions, I’ve use Microsoft “AdventureWorks” which is full of scripting surprises.  Keep in mind, I’ve use a mix of both SMO and embed-TSQL that assist in generating the results.

Here’s a teaser sample using new function to script User Defined Data Types:

## - Setting variables:
$SQLInstanceName = "YourSQLinstanceName"
$SourcedbName = "AdventureWorks"
$DestinationdbName = "Developer"

## - Sample - Write a UserDefinedDataTypes script, and display results in console:
Write-TSQLScriptUserDefinedDataTypes -SQLInstanceName $SQLInstanceName -DatabaseName $SourcedbName `
 -DestinationdbName $DestinationdbName -DropUDDTOnly
Write-TSQLScriptUserDefinedDataTypes -SQLInstanceName $SQLInstanceName -DatabaseName $SourcedbName `
 -DestinationdbName $DestinationdbName -CreateUDDTOnly

## Save PS Object to a file, and then view it:
[string] $ScriptToFile = Write-TSQLScriptUserDefinedDataTypes -SQLInstanceName $SQLInstanceName -DatabaseName $SourcedbName `
 -DestinationdbName $DestinationdbName
$ScriptToFile | Out-File c:\Temp\SQLScript01.sql
ii c:\Temp\SQLScript01.sql
Sample executing Write-TSQLScriptUserDefinedDataTypes

Stay Tuned!!
