Switching Object Schemas

Steve Jones show you a quick way of switching a database object’s schema:

I haven’t had the need to move an object from one schema to another in years. Really since SQL Server 2000. I wrote about deleting a user that owns a schema recently, but that’s often a first step. The next thing I might need to do is actually move objects from that schema to a new one.

I actually ran across this command when I was looking how to move the schema to a new user. There’s actually a parameter for ALTER SCHEMA that will move objects.

This doesn’t pop up too often for me at least, but it’s good to remember if you’re using schemas as a method of categorizing data.
