Use sp_set_qplan to change the abstract plan of an existing plan. You can specify a maximum of 255 characters for a plan. If the abstract plan is longer than 255 characters, you can drop the old plan with sp_drop_qplan and then use create plan to create a new plan for the query.
When you change a plan with sp_set_qplan, plans are not checked for valid abstract plan syntax. Also, the plan is not checked for compatibility with the SQL text. All plans modified with sp_set_qplan should be immediately checked for correctness by running the query for the specified ID.
Any user can execute sp_set_qplan to change the text for a plan that he or she owns. Only the System Administrator or the Database Owner can change the text for a plan that belongs to another user.
