I am creating a view that must be updated several times during the month. Right now I have 3 SQL queries to accomplish this.

1st Query    DROP VIEW  {view name}
 2nd            CREATE VIEW (view name) as
                   SELECT  (Several Columns)

3rd             Exec {database name}_grant_permissions
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How would I combine into 1 SQL Query to run

well, you can combine the drop/create by doing

alter view <viewname> as
select <...>

the exec would have to be separate

unless you want to put it all in a stored procedure, then you could just put all 3 statements inside it and execute it with "exec sp_Your_Proc"

if the grant permissions is just to regrant the permissions on the view because it had been dropped, do indeed the ALTER VIEW instead, it will retain the permissions

Which of course begs the question as to why you are doing this.  This sounds like a design problem that should be addressed.
