I have 2 tables I want to update a Live Table to a Training table. Without having to backup and restore the whole database.

I was thinking.

update ServiceTR.dbo.[ar-open-item] << Training Database\Table
set
ServiceTR.dbo.[ar-open-item] = Service.dbo.[ar-open-item] << Live Database\Table

Disregard this, I deleted the database's from the training database then did an import on ServiceTR db from Service db and just selected those 2 tables and it copied them over with no issue.

All I needed was to do was copy live tables only 2 of them and replace 2 from training, and the import export function worked for what I wanted to to do under the tasks section.
