I just switched SQL servers and my old stored procedures read dbo.whatever, etc. whereas some of my new tables aren't dbo they're mattbrigh

How do I change those to dbo or do I need to change my stored procedures to mattbrigh from dbo?

You'd be much better off changing the tables.

Use: EXEC sp_changeObjectOwner -- see Books Online for more details, or post a follow-up comment here :-) .

For example, to generate the commands:

SELECT 'EXEC sp_changeObjectOwner ''' + name + ''', ''dbo'''
FROM sysobjects
WHERE xtype = 'U'
AND USER_NAME(uid) <> 'dbo'

Just had this same question earlier today for views--look at the above post and change the 'VIEW' in the query to 'TABLE'

No dice.  It runs in Query Analyzer and says it works, but when I look at my tables in Ent. Manager, the type is still "User" and the owner is still "mattybrigh"

Run this, it will change all your tables and procedures to dbo:

--*********************************
DECLARE @Name varchar(1000)
DECLARE @UID int

-- Declare a cursor and setup
DECLARE NameUpdate CURSOR LOCAL FAST_FORWARD
FOR
SELECT [Name], uid FROM sysobjects
WHERE Type <> 'S'
AND (xType = 'P' OR xType = 'U')
AND uid <> 1

-- Open the cursor
OPEN NameUpdate

-- Fetch the Data into the variables
FETCH NEXT FROM NameUpdate
INTO @Name,@UID

-- Loop through the duplicates setting the next duplicates deletedatetime
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
      SET @Name = (SELECT name FROM sysusers WHERE uid = @UID) + '.' + @Name

      EXEC sp_changeobjectowner @Name, 'dbo'
      
      FETCH NEXT FROM NameUpdate
      INTO @Name,@UID

END

CLOSE NameUpdate
DEALLOCATE NameUpdate
