Can someone tell me how to copy an MS Access table's table structure and all its constraints, keys, and etc. using .NET or SQL? I have searched and found a number of ways of copying the columns and types, but I need to bring across the constraints as well such as primary keys.
I have a database with a bunch of tables which I need to create copies of (structure only) with new names. This needs to be executed from within a C# application, but I do not care if it is done using ADO or SQL, just as long as I can find a way. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
You can "export" to the same database, which will create a copy with all indexes etc, but not relationships.
// Start a new instance of Access for Automation oAccess = new Access.Application(); // Open a database oAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase(@"z:\docs\test.accdb"); oAccess.DoCmd.TransferDatabase( Access.AcDataTransferType.acExport, "Microsoft Access", @"z:\docs\test.accdb", Access.AcObjectType.acTable, "table1", "newtable",true,false);
