Schema refers to a specific database tables and how they are related to each other. It provides an organisational blueprint of how the database is constructed. Additional benefits of implementing database schemas is that schemas can be used as a method restricting / granting access to specific tables within a database.
# Creating a Schema
CREATE SCHEMA dvr AUTHORIZATION Owner CREATE TABLE sat_Sales (source int, cost int, partid int) GRANT SELECT ON SCHEMA :: dvr TO User1 DENY SELECT ON SCHEMA :: dvr to User 2 GO
# Alter Schema
ALTER SCHEMA dvr TRANSFER dbo.tbl_Staging; GO
This would transfer the tbl_Staging table from the dbo schema to the dvr schema
# Dropping Schemas
DROP SCHEMA dvr
