To Empty a Database

To stop the import of ‘already there’ data (twice) I needed to empty every table. Its a very, very good idea to back up your databases before using this code. It empties a whole database in one go!

-- empty database
use SomeDatabaseName -- ** change to subject database first & *** CHECK SERVER NAME **
go
EXEC sp_MSForEachTable 'TRUNCATE TABLE [?]'
