DTS is also an option, and gives you more control over what you want to

Right-Click Database -> All Tasks -> Export Data
Choose the Source and Destination Database
Choose 'Copy Objects And Data..'
Uncheck 'Copy Data'
.. continue select options and objects that you want to copy as required.

Subject: [dba-SQLServer] Copy database question

I want to copy a database containing 100+ tables, about 500 sprocs and about
200 views and about 20 UDFs to a new database, but with the proviso that no
data goes, only the structures. I'm not sure how to do this. Suggestions?
