Tip

Change all object owners

This batch job changes the object owner where the uid = UseNAme:

SELECT * from sysobjects where uid = user_id('UseNAme')
declare @Return int
exec @Return = sp_configure 'allow updates', '1'
SELECT @Return as 'Returned Code'
GO
reconfigure WITH OVERRIDE
GO
DECLARE @Rows int, @Error int
BEGIN TRANSACTION
update sysobjects set uid = user_id('dbo') where uid = user_id('UseNAme')
SELECT @Error = @@Error, @Rows = @@RowCount
SELECT @Rows as '#Rows'
IF @Rows > 0
 BEGIN	
  SELECT  @Rows AS '#Rows'
  COMMIT TRANSACTION
 END
else 
 BEGIN
  SELECT @Error AS 'Error #'
  ROLLBACK TRANSACTION
 END

exec sp_configure 'allow updates', '0'
reconfigure WITH OVERRIDE
go
