Is there a way to change to owner of a coded value domain?  There doesn't seem to be a way to do this from the ArcCatalog user interface -- even when connected as SDE.  Though I may be missing something.

I guess the fall back option would be to export the domain, delete it, then import it as the new owner.  Would like to avoid this path if possible.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

So.. I found the IDowmain.Owner property and have built a simple VBA script that allows me to update the owner in ArcCatalog.   Yet to test this in an SDE instance but seems to work OK in a File Geodatabase -- though of course the "owner" doesn't really apply in a non-SDE Geodatabase.
