All,

According to the Microsoft documentation you can effectively remove the partition from a table by changing it to just one partition.

If I understand correctly then that means I couldn't change the partition column because it's still a partitioned table?

To partition on a new column I would have to create an empty, identical table, copy the data across and rename the table?

This is based on 2016 Standard SP1.

Thanks
