Hi All,

I have two database xyz and abc in the same instance of SQL Server 2000 on the same server.

The only difference is that the target database (xyz) has a few objects (tables, indexes, sps, view, logins) more than the other that is database abc.

When I use DTS and schedule to copy all objects from abc to xyz the operation deletes the additional tables and objects from xyz.

What could be the cause. Can I acheive it programmatically. If so how?

You can compare the system tables to find what objects don't exist then copy them to another database only to copy back when you're done.
Alternately you can create a staging database.
