    Unanswered: Backup and Restore

    I have a backup of all my databases schedule to run every night but the problem is that I have to take the latest backup of database A and restore it into database B every morning. I have been doing this every morning manually but is there anyway by which I can schedule this to run automatically every morning bearing in mind that I cannot do DTS to transfer data. Database A must not be touched. The restore to database B has to be from the backup of database A.
    Please any response will be greatly appreciated.

    I have a backup of all my databases schedule to run every night but the problem is that I have to take the latest backup of database A and restore it into database B every morning. I have been doing this every morning manually but -

    Q1 Is there anyway by which I can schedule this to run automatically every morning?

    - bearing in mind that I cannot do DTS to transfer data. Database A must not be touched. The restore to database B has to be from the backup of database A. Please any response will be greatly appreciated.
    A1 Yes. (Create a job with a backup step and a restore step scheduled to run each morning.

    For example:

    -- PubsDumpABackUp --> PubsBRestore Job Script
    -- By: dba

    BEGIN TRANSACTION
    DECLARE @JobID BINARY(16)
    DECLARE @ReturnCode INT
    SELECT @ReturnCode = 0
    IF (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM msdb.dbo.syscategories WHERE name = N'Database Maintenance') < 1
    EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_category @name = N'Database Maintenance'
    IF (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM msdb.dbo.sysjobs WHERE name = N'PubsDumpABackUp --> PubsBRestore') > 0
    PRINT N'The job "PubsDumpABackUp --> PubsBRestore" already exists so will not be replaced.'
    ELSE
    BEGIN

    -- Add the job
    EXECUTE @ReturnCode = msdb.dbo.sp_add_job @job_id = @JobID OUTPUT , @job_name = N'PubsDumpABackUp --> PubsBRestore', @owner_login_name = N'sa', @description = N'No description available.', @category_name = N'Database Maintenance', @enabled = 1, @notify_level_email = 0, @notify_level_page = 0, @notify_level_netsend = 0, @notify_level_eventlog = 2, @delete_level= 0
