copying existing database table

copying existing database table

(OP)
Guys please help I'm losing it. I'm trying to copy or backup my existing db table at button click using an sql query in visual studio 2010 C#. I keep getting the same error and batle to figure out what the fault could be.

#######I first tried....

string sqldatex = "Select * Into NewTable From OldTable";
SqlCommand comdatex = new SqlCommand(sqldatex, conn);
comdatex.ExecuteScalar();

Error: Incorrect syntax near 'NewTable'.


###########And then I tried...

string sqldatex = "INSERT INTO NewTable (SLA) SELECT SLA FROM OldTable";
SqlCommand comdatex = new SqlCommand(sqldatex, conn);
comdatex.ExecuteScalar();

Error: Incorrect syntax near 'NewTable'.



Please help me
