Script out your foreign keys

This is a simple query for creating a script for your foreign keys in your database. It may need tweaking for composite keys.
If that's the case, see here how to concatenate http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=81254

;WITH Yak
AS (
    SELECT      ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY o.[schema_id]) AS RowID,
                QUOTENAME(o.name) AS CONSTRAINT_NAME,
                QUOTENAME(SCHEMA_NAME(po.[schema_id])) AS FOREIGN_TABLE_SCHEMA,
                QUOTENAME(po.name) AS FOREIGN_TABLE_NAME,

                QUOTENAME(SCHEMA_NAME(ro.[schema_id])) AS PRIMARY_TABLE_SCHEMA,

# re: Script out your foreign keys

We can also check for trusted FKs (for performance benefit)

SELECT OBJECT_NAME(parent_object_id) AS table_name, name
FROM sys.check_constraints
WHERE is_not_trusted = 1
UNION ALL
SELECT OBJECT_NAME(parent_object_id) AS table_name, name
FROM sys.foreign_keys
WHERE is_not_trusted = 1
ORDER BY table_name
