A Script A Day - Day 3 - Live Change Data Edit Template

Today's script is a template I use for the occasions when a data edit is required to be run against a live environment.  It has 8 steps to give you as DBA's control over what is being run and the safety of recording results before and after the modifications.  The comments section at the top is used to give you an instant view of who, what and where about the script.
