			'DROP INDEX [' + +'] ON ['+SCHEMA_NAME(o.schema_id)+'].[' +']' end
from	sys.indexes i
join	sys.objects o
on		i.object_id = o.object_id
where	(exists (
				--find any columns that have a collation specified
				select	1
				from	sys.index_columns ic
				join	sys.columns c
				on		ic.object_id = c.object_id
				and		ic.column_id = c.column_id
				where	collation_name is not null 
				and		c.object_id = i.object_id
				and		ic.index_id = i.index_id)
