If you want to script a SQL Server database and want to include content for the lookup tables, you can use Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo in C#:

  • Add reference to Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo
  • Add reference to Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo
  • Add reference to Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc

 

Use the following code to scripts Tables, Content, Store Procedures and Functions

using System;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo;
using NUnit.Framework;
