Table creation in non dbo schema

   I work with Sql server 2016 . While creating a table it is getting created in the DBO schama and I have no option to change . How can I create a table in a different schema?

Give this a whirl..
-- Create schema new_schema if it does not already exist
IF (NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.schemas WHERE name = 'new_schema')) 

-- Move your_table to schema new_schema
ALTER SCHEMA new_schema TRANSFER dbo.your_table

Open in new window

Or while creating table itself, which is I guess what you are asking for...

create table [schema_name].[table_name]
  -- column definition goes here...

Open in new window

When creating an object in SQL Server, the object will be created in the default user schema if no explicit schema has been provided.
To create an object in a different database schema you'll need to explicitly say the schema name, as provided above by Nitin. Mind that the user need to have permissions to create objects in the desired schema.
You also have to create the schema first.
