Select this checkbox if you want to change the assigned DBMS of objects in the Package. Provide values for the 'Current DBMS' and 'New DBMS' fields in order to continue. The 'Current DBMS' drop-down list includes the option '<All>', which changes several different DBMS values all to the new value.

Note: When performing this function, the data types of all Table columns are automatically converted to the closest match for the selected DBMS; therefore, you should perform a manual review of the data types after running the process.

Change Owner

Select this checkbox if you want to change the Owner of the selected objects in the 'List of Objects'. Specify the current Owner in the 'Current Owner' field in order to continue. Leaving the 'New Owner' field blank will remove the Owner property of all selected objects.
