T-SQL script to convert all user DBs recovery model


Does anyone have a t-sql script to convert all user databases recovery model? ( either way, Simple2Full or Full2Simple )
There is an article but it requires multiple execution of the script.
I wonder if there is a script that can achieve this at one shot.


Thank you for your help.

How much times you will execute that?  Is it worth it?
Changing recovery model normaly is also followed with a full backup or your going to FULL followed by a trn backup will let this fail.....

But for the challenge try sp_MSForEachDB , use ? for the db_name. Not tested and also no test integrated on the current recovery model .

declare @cmd1 ad nvarchar(1000)
set @cmd1 =
'IF '?' not in  NOT IN(''master'',''tempdb'',''msdb'',''model'')
exec sp_msforeachdb @command1 = @cmd1

It worked with a minor error. Even though it's excluded, it still gives an error message on 'tempdb'. To avoid the error, I had to use EXEC function as described below :
