Hi Experts,
If I drop a table what would happened to the objects (Views, Triggers, Sproc, UDFs) that depends on that table?
I'm working on sql server 2005.

Thx,

they wont get dropped. you might get a warning saying the sprocs, views that depend on tht table will be affected.

if you modify sproc to use another table there shldnt be no problem.
