DECLARE @tbl sysname
SELECT name FROM sysobjects
WHERE xtype = 'U' AND uid = user_id('oldowner')
OPEN tblcur
WHILE 1 = 1
FETCH tblcur INTO @tbl
IF @@fetch_status <0

EXEC sp_changeobjectonwer @tbl, 'oldowner', 'newowner'

The above is untested, and you may have to look up details in Books Online.

Furthermore, I'm assuming SQL 2000. On SQL 2005, the preferred solution is
different. In fact, odds are good that on SQL 2005 you would not need to do
this at all, since schema and onwer are separated. All depending on why you
want to change the owner, that is.
