I'm trying to use this in SQL 2005, and am running into an issue with the sp_MSforeach_worker. It is only setup to handle tables or databases.
set @local_cursor = hCForEachDatabase
set @local_cursor = hCForEachTable
How would the sp_MSforeach_worker (or an additional/replacement one) need to be coded to handle the views, etc?
A little bit of this and a little byte of that can cause bloatware.
Just had a go at this myself, ran into some errors, thought I'd post what needed to be done for SQL 2008 R2 to hopefully help the next guy get through it a bit faster.
The key, as mentioned above, is the changed procedure. After that, it's important to change SET QUOTED IDENTIFIER OFF - not ON, as in the original article code[/url]. Took me a minute (and a helpful blog from a fellow in Romania) to get that. 🙂
