you have to specify
CREATE TABLE dbo.tablename

other wise, it will be the username as default.

unless the username has the db_owner role, in that case, the default is dbo indeed, and not the username

yeah i did conveyed the same to the user, but since they are running DTS packages wherein some tables are created (it is here that the schema is becoming a problem) and when comparing it with tables with dbo schema the dts is failing....previously when the users complained that they were not able to see jobs in the server, I have added the user under msdb targetserverrole n nothing else...

nothing...they were existing users on the server....prefixing the names to the DTS i think no...they were just executing them and no inputs and it is after getting the error  that they can get to know that something is wrong

finally I gave admin rights since they were also part of the group and guess it fixed the prob since they didnt complain further and also with sa rights the schema will be default as dbo even in sql server 2000.
