changing object owner syntax

Hi there,
We have a user name convention here that specifies users in the
following way:
jane.doe
john.smith

In order to change a database object I must specify the owner name along
with the object name. Does anyone know the proper syntax for doing this
with a user name that contains a period? When I put the user name
followed by the object name in quotes such as 'jane.doe.tb_te st_table',
SQL Server can not find the object.
Any help is appreciated.

You will need to quote the owner name:

exec sp_changeobject owner '[jane.doe].tb_test_table' , 'dbo'

You may want to consider changing your naming convention - since the .
character delimits object name parts in MSSQL, it would probably be best to
avoid confusiong by not allowing it in user names. Although of course I
appreciate this may be beyond your control.
