The defncopy utility cannot copy table definitions or reports created with Report Workbench.   Invoke the defncopy program directly from the operating system. defncopy provides a non-interactive way of copying out definitions (create statements) for views, rules, defaults, triggers, or procedures from a database to an operating system file.

Alternatively, it copies in all the definitions from a specified file. You must have select permission on the sysobjects and syscomments tables to copy out definitions; you do not need
permission on the object itself.

? You must have the appropriate create permission for the type of object you are copying in. Objects copied in belong to the copier. A System Administrator copying in definitions on behalf of a user must log in as that user to give the user proper access to the reconstructed database objects.
