                        2) restrict to tables only (was doing views!)
                        3) nolock table hint added
                        4) uniqueidentifier added to data types searched
                        5) relays progress to window instantly using raiserror

SQL 2012 - sp_dboption is no more....

Ultra confident a set of trusted scripts would work on SQL 2012, I came across this today, sp_dboption has gone from SQL 2012.

The solution is to use the relevent ALTER DATABASE syntax.

Old : EXEC sp_dboption 'Adventureworks', 'single user', 'TRUE';
New : ALTER DATABASE Adventureworks SET SINGLE_USER

Old : EXEC sp_dboption 'Adventureworks', 'single user', 'FALSE';
New : ALTER DATABASE Adventureworks SET MULTI_USER

This post from Jacob Sebastian details the rest ...
