I have a database named UB-ReTS1 which contains tables; Document, UserAccount and BackupRestore. Now I need to backup only a part of my database, I only need to backup the table Document and UserAccount. I have the following code which will backup the whole database:

protected void Button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string dbname2 = "[UB-ReTS1]";

        string filePath = Server.MapPath(FileUpload1.FileName);

        RestoreDataBase(strPath, dbname2, "Server=.\\SQLEXPRESS;database=" + dbname + ";Integrated Security=True;Pooling=False;");

        ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "myalert", "alert('Database restoration succeeded.');", true);

Please help me and thanks in advanced!!

This question opens up some questions to how your SQL enviroment is set up. As far as I know, SQL does not support the backup of a specific table. It does however support the backup of a specific filegroup, and in turn its associated files. What you will need to do is create a new filegroup on your sql database, and assign the tables you want to specifically back up to that filegroup. Then, you can go through a process of backing up that filegroup, and you will get the files associated to that filegroup (which are your tables).

If you have any questions, let me know in a comment.
