Setting up nightly query

I need to setup a SQL script to run nightly. The script starts by creating temp table and it builds up one after the other, and finally dumps the data into a table. The next day it drops the data from the same table, and creates a new data with the same table name. I’m using SQL Server 2005. My question is what would be the best way of achieving this. Please Help. Thanks!

Simply create a SQL Agent job to run the script you have. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189237.aspx

Can this be done using SSIS?

Not really the same thing. The SSIS package would be something that you would also schedule as for execution via the SQL Agent too.

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.
