Hi Guys,

I want to take backup of a table.
But I dont want to use Select * into, so is there any other query
which I can fire in order to get table backup.

Depending on your database program, you ought to have a dump utility. This example is for MySQL5.0.

I don't understand, SELECT is the only query that reads data from the database, so unless you want to make a backup out of thin air, you'll need to use the SELECT command in some fashion or another.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
