    Unanswered: Unable to drop user

    I restored a user database from another server and created a script to drop and recreate the users. This has worked for me in the past to synchronize logins/passwords. Recently I have been unable to drop two users and get the following error message:

    Server: Msg 15183, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_MScheck_uid_owns_anything, Line 17
    The user owns objects in the database and cannot be dropped.

    I'm unable to find any objects owned by the user and have unsuccessfully been able to drop them. Has anyone else anything similar to this error?

    I'd substitute your user's name for Phred, then run:
       FROM dbo.sysusers AS u
       JOIN dbo.sysobjects AS o
          ON (o.uid = u.uid)
       WHERE = 'Phred'
       ORDER BY
