How can I remove all default constraint constraints on a table

advertisements

How can I drop all the default constraints belonging to a particular table in SQL 2005?


One solution from a search: (Edited for Default constraints)

SET NOCOUNT ON

DECLARE  @constraintname SYSNAME, @objectid int,
           @sqlcmd         VARCHAR(1024)

DECLARE CONSTRAINTSCURSOR CURSOR  FOR
SELECT NAME, object_id
FROM   SYS.OBJECTS
WHERE  TYPE = 'D' AND @objectid = OBJECT_ID('Mytable')

OPEN CONSTRAINTSCURSOR

FETCH NEXT FROM CONSTRAINTSCURSOR
INTO @constraintname, @objectid

WHILE (@@FETCH_STATUS = 0)
BEGIN
    SELECT @sqlcmd = 'ALTER TABLE ' + OBJECT_NAME(@objectid) + ' DROP CONSTRAINT ' + @constraintname
    EXEC( @sqlcmd)
    FETCH NEXT FROM CONSTRAINTSCURSOR
    INTO @constraintname, @objectid
END

CLOSE CONSTRAINTSCURSOR
DEALLOCATE CONSTRAINTSCURSOR
