SQL Server Collation Query

I have several Dbases with the wrong collation setting and need to correct it.  Please can anyone confirm if the solution provided in this Article from 2004 is still the best way of doing it (i.e. use a SQL Script to recreate the Dbase and BCP to export then import the data)?

Is there a better way with SQL2005?

Thanks,


Ian
