“Change Schema Name on Tables and Stored Procedures in SQL Server 2005″

This article shows how to change the ‘schema’ name on an object from ‘username’ to ‘dbo’ in SQL Server 2005. The script generates code you have to copy, paste, and run on the database.

Change stored procedure owner in SQL Server 2005

Note: This is the raw query:
SELECT ‘ALTER SCHEMA dbo TRANSFER ‘ + s.Name + ‘.’ + p.Name FROM
sys.Procedures p INNER JOIN sys.Schemas s on p.schema_id = s.schema_id
where s.Name = ‘CHANGE_ME_Username’

It would create this kind of output:

* ALTER SCHEMA dbo TRANSFER steveschofield.spAuthors1
* ALTER SCHEMA dbo TRANSFER steveschofield.spAuthors2
* ALTER SCHEMA dbo TRANSFER steveschofield.spAuthors3

You would run the output in a new query window. After executing the statements, refresh SQL Management studio; the stored procedures would be updated to dbo.spAuthors1, dbo.spAuthors2, dbo.spAuthors3.

Change table owner in SQL Server 2005

Click here for an article that describes the syntax, it uses ‘sp_changeobjectowner’ which will not be supported in future SQL Server revisions however it works in SQL Server 2005.
declare @OldOwner varchar(100) declare @NewOwner varchar(100) set @OldOwner = ‘OldOwner’ set @NewOwner = ‘NewOwner’ s

elect ‘sp_changeobjectowner ”[‘ + table_schema + ‘].[‘ + table_name + ‘]”, ”’ + @NewOwner + ”’ go
from information_schema.tables where Table_schema = @OldOwner
