Changing the Schema for all Tables in a Tables - MS SQL Server 2008 R2.

Hi EE,

I know to change the schema name of table you the following command:

ALTER SCHEMA MySchema TRANSFER dbo.MyTable

My query are there any scripts out there that do this to all the tables in a database as this database has hundreds of tables?

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

I'd create a loop based on the tables names returned from something like SELECT Name from sys.Tables and then generate dynamic sql like

'ALTER SCHEMA myschema TRANSFER ' + dbo.Mytable

then execute it.

Sorry, not at a computer to code it exactly.
