Creating, Altering, and Removing Schemas

The Schema object represents an ownership context for database object. The Schemas property of the Database object represents a collection of Schema objects.

To use any code example that is provided, you will have to choose the programming environment, the programming template, and the programming language in which to create your application. For more information, see Create a Visual Basic SMO Project in Visual Studio .NET or Create a Visual C# SMO Project in Visual Studio .NET.

This code example demonstrates how to create a schema and assign it to a database object. The program then grants permission to a user, and then creates a new table in the schema.

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server
'Reference the AdventureWorks2012database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")
'Define a Schema object variable by supplying the parent database and name arguments in the constructor.
Dim sch As Schema
sch = New Schema(db, "MySchema1")
sch.Owner = "dbo"
'Create the schema on the instance of SQL Server.
sch.Create()
'Define an ObjectPermissionSet that contains the Update and Select object permissions.
Dim obperset As ObjectPermissionSet
obperset = New ObjectPermissionSet()
obperset.Add(ObjectPermission.Select)
obperset.Add(ObjectPermission.Update)
'Grant the set of permissions on the schema to the guest account.
sch.Grant(obperset, "guest")
'Define a Table object variable by supplying the parent database, name and schema arguments in the constructor.
Dim tb As Table
tb = New Table(db, "MyTable", "MySchema1")
Dim mycol As Column
mycol = New Column(tb, "Date", DataType.DateTime)
tb.Columns.Add(mycol)
tb.Create()
'Modify the owner of the schema and run the Alter method to make the change on the instance of SQL Server.
sch.Owner = "guest"
sch.Alter()
'Run the Drop method for the table and the schema to remove them.
tb.Drop()
sch.Drop()

        //Define a Table object variable by supplying the parent database, name and schema arguments in the constructor. 
        Table tb = new Table(db, "MyTable", "MySchema1"); 
       Column mycol = new Column(tb, "Date", DataType.DateTime); 
        tb.Columns.Add(mycol); 
        tb.Create(); 

        //Modify the owner of the schema and run the Alter method to make the change on the instance of SQL Server. 
        sch.Owner = "guest"; 
        sch.Alter();

# Set the path context to the local, default instance of SQL Server and get a reference to AdventureWorks2012
