There is no equivalent; therefore, you will need to DROP the original object and CREATE it again.

For example, here is a view:
IF OBJECT_ID (N'{your object name here}') IS NOT NULL
   DROP VIEW {your object name here}
GO

CREATE VIEW {your object name here}
AS ...

Open in new window


OR
IF OBJECT_ID (N'dbo.VW_Something') IS NOT NULL
   DROP VIEW dbo.VW_Something
GO

CREATE VIEW dbo.VW_Something
AS ...

Open in new window
