Instead of issuing PRINT @tsql;, you can issue EXEC( @tsql );, if I understand what you're asking. If so, I would suggest declaring a preview parameter ( something like DECLARE @Preview BIT = 1; ) and then use an IF to either print or execute. IF ( @Preview = 1 ) BEGIN PRINT @tsql; END ELSE BEGIN EXEC( @tsql ); END;

Let's say the new default you want is 5: DECLARE @sql NVARCHAR(MAX) = N''; SELECT @sql += N'ALTER TABLE ' + t + ' DROP CONSTRAINT ' + c + '; ALTER TABLE ' + t + ' ADD CONSTRAINT ' + c + ' DEFAULT (5) FOR [project_id];' FROM ( SELECT t = QUOTENAME(s.name) + '.' + QUOTENAME(t.name), c = QUOTENAME(d.name) FROM sys.tables AS t INNER JOIN ...
