Dynamically Drop Table Constraints

System generated constraints take on a naming convention of their own. Unfortunately the naming convention in production is rarely the same name in the uncontrolled environments. Using this script, you can dynamically drop all system generated constraints. It doesn’t go as far are re-creating them, however it’s a start. Just change the values of the @TableSchema and TableName variables below: [cc lang=”sql”] DECLARE @TableName varchar(100) DECLARE @TableSchema varchar(100) DECLARE @CountConst int DECLARE @default sysname DECLARE @SQLDropMe varchar(max) DECLARE @ColumnNames varchar(max) SET @TableSchema = ‘dbo’ SET @TableName = ’employees’ ——————————————— Store Existing Column Names SET @ColumnNames = SUBSTRING((SELECT ‘,’ + r.COLUMN_NAME FROM( SELECT COLUMN_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = @TableSchema AND TABLE_NAME = @TableName ) r FOR XML PATH(”) ), 2, 8000) ——————————————— /Store Existing Column Names ——————————————— Insert contents into temp table EXEC (‘SELECT * INTO ‘ + @TableSchema + ‘.tmp01_’ + @TableName + ‘ FROM ‘ + @TableSchema + ‘.’ + @TableName) ——————————————— /Insert contents into temp table ——————————————— Drop all the constraints DECLARE @TableConstraints TABLE ( ID int IDENTITY(1,1) ,DefaultConst sysname ) INSERT INTO @TableConstraints ( DefaultConst ) SELECT object_name(default_object_id) FROM sys.columns WHERE object_id = object_id(@TableSchema + ‘.’ + @TableName) AND object_name(default_object_id) IS NOT NULL SET @CountConst = (SELECT MAX(ID) FROM @TableConstraints) WHILE @CountConst > 0 BEGIN SET @Default = (SELECT DefaultConst FROM @TableConstraints WHERE ID = @CountConst) SET @SQLDropMe = ‘ALTER TABLE ‘ + @TableSchema + ‘.’ + @TableName + ‘ DROP CONSTRAINT ‘ + @default SELECT @SQLDropMe –EXEC (@SQLDropMe) SET @CountConst = @CountConst – 1 END […]

The database principal owns a schema in the database, and cannot be dropped. – Fix

If you try to drop a user that owns a schema, you will receive the following error message: [code] The database principal owns a schema in the database, and cannot be dropped. [/code] In order to drop the user, you need to find the schemas they are assigned, then transfer the ownership to another user or role [cc lang=”sql”] SELECT FROM sys.schemas s WHERE s.principal_id = USER_ID(‘joe’) — now use the names you find from the above query below in place of the SchemaName below ALTER AUTHORIZATION ON SCHEMA::SchemaName TO dbo [/cc]
