Rudy,

First thanks for posting the sp. The code it generates uses sp_dropuser and that does not work for usernames that contain periods. One of the applications we use creates usernames in the following format: vdb_First.Last

EXEC sp_droplogin vdb_First.Last



results in:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near '.'.





Looks like you need to enclose your output like you did with the sp_dropuser:

PRINT 'EXEC sp_droplogin ['+ @SpecificName +']'

Hello Ryan,

Thanks for the update. Guess I didn't think of this when I wrote the script as I have not seen anyone using the "." in the login name.

Thanks,

Rudy

Looks like you need to enclose your output with single quotes:

PRINT 'EXEC sp_dropuser ''['+ @DatabaseUser +']''' 



and

PRINT 'EXEC sp_droplogin '''+ @SpecificName +''''

No worries.

FYI: I just edited my original post as the sp_dropuser is okay. It is just the sp_droplogin that needs to be enclosed. Looks like [ ] works as good as ' '.

Nice script. I had to add SID matching for my purposes. It's possible that the name in sysusers is different from the login that it points to in syslogins.

This script generates the script to drop users only for the users who don't own a schema.

It would have been better if it can generate like that too. I'll try to edit this script.. and post here

Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I haven't tried it but it looks like the code won't actually work if the user owns something like a schema, etc.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

DROP LOGIN [domainName\userName] is good for both SQL and Windows users, and deletes also related users, for me this simple syntax more usable than your SP.
