Here is a quick way to create a table that has the same structure as an existing table (without listing the entire CREATE TABLE syntax of the other table).
Just run the query...
SELECT * INTO [new table] FROM [old table] WHERE (1 = 0)
You can even use it in a stored stored procedure to create a temp table
select * into #temp from [my table] where 1 = 0
