Generate Insert Statements Easily
October 20, 2000
This script will generate insert statements for the given tables. You can pass the tables names, separated by commas, into sp_DataAsInsCommand stored procedure as in the example below:
EXEC sp_DataAsInsCommand 'employee,titleauthor,pub_info'
Updated on 5/25/01 to correct an issue with columns that are short like a column defined as char(1), to correct another issue with the Identity column (before you had to supply a list of columns in the insert statement), and to add the following two changes: 1) to print the name of the table in a comment before the insert commands, and 2) to expand the size of the parameter so a larger list of tables could be submitted to the stored procedure.
