Interdependent functions (udf)

We have two udf-functions which are interdependent and can call each other recursivly.

Changing the parameters and update a database with SQL compare leads in an error.
The reason is clear - but how can I avoid the error? Is there a way to solve this without Scripting?

Thank you for any help or hints!

    Thank you for your forum post.

    You obviously have a circular dependency. One way to resolve this is to break the circular dependency and manually script the change.

    Or create temp objects with the new structure. Export the data out of the existing tables and insert into the temp tables. Drop the existing objects and rename the temp objects to take over the role of the objects that were dropped.

    Either way, you will need to perform some scripting.

    Many Thanks
