  • 'dbo' is the default schema. If an object does not belong to any schema, it belongs to the 'dbo' schema.

    If you create a table for example without a schema, it is automatically assinged to the 'dbo' schema.

    It is helpful to use the 'dbo' schema performance wise, although the gain cannot be estimated.

    For UDF referencing, it is required.

    'dbo' schema is in the db_owner role.
