Hi
I have a dev database and a live database

both have linked servers to other databases in the dev environments and live environments

I would like to know if it is posible to create a synonym to a schema rather than an object

so In the dev database my synonym would be created something like

create sysnonym Server.TheSchema for [DevServer].[Databade].[TheSchema]

and in live

create sysnonym Server.TheSchema for [LiveServer].[Databade].[TheSchema]

This way I would only need to alter the information in my synonym rather than each time i reference a table.

I know the about doesnt work so i was hoping that there was a way.

Thanks
Lowell

nope a synonym must point to an object ( an object that would exist in a databases sys.objects view), and not part of the name of an object.

so by definitions, it is typically used for tables , views etc. very handy for aliasing four part objects, like CREATE SYNONYM myTable FOR OtherServer.Databasename.dbo.Tablename

Nope, you have to synonym every object:

[LiveServer].[Databade].[TheSchema].[ObjectName1] --> [DevServer].[Databade].[TheSchema].[ObjectName1]

[LiveServer].[Databade].[TheSchema].[ObjectName2] --> [DevServer].[Databade].[TheSchema].[ObjectName2]

etc.
