How to add objects to existing VS2010 database project

We have a database project in Visual Studio 2010. On our development server, I have created a couple of new tables (with some indexes, foreign keys, etc).

How do I import this new table and associated indexes, keys etc into my database project?

I am not too sure about VS2010 with regard to reading objects out the database, or how you have your project setup, but I have written a Powershell script to read out the objects of a database for use with source control. It spits out a file for each object, you would then only need to create the table files using the SMO calls in my script.

You can find the script here: [Scripting DB Objects using Powershell][1]

Visual Studio 2010 has the ability to compare a database with the project. It's in the Data menu and the Schema Comparison option. After that it should be fairly self-explanatory.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
