We are planning to migrate to SQL Server 2008 from 2005. We also wanted to change the database names while doing this.But the problem is, we have these database names hard-coded in the views and stored procedures.
Can we write a script to rename all the database names inside these views and stored procedure instead of going to each one of them and change it ?
I tried to Generate scripts using SSMS for all the ones that I need to change and replaced the database names using the text editor and then ran this script in Management Studio which did not work.
Any ideas ?

Thanks,
TH

That should work.

First off ... Do a backup.

Generate Scripts, then change the database name on the actual database, then do a find and replace on the generated script (must be an overwriting script, like drop and create, or alter) and replace prior database name with new database name.

This will not work if you do not change the database name before running the script.

Hi

In ssms right click the DB, select tasks then generate scripts. this will let you script the entire DB into a new query window. Once it has done this just do a find and replace of the old DB name to the new one and you're done

Thanks

Synonym option doesn't work for my scenario though it is one of the ways. I will have to try the other option after the migration. But I am sure this will work.

Thanks for the quick responses!
