Find and replace column constraints

By Clinton Herring,

I submit this script as an example of how one might go about generating 'Alter Table' statements that find and replace specific column constraints. In my case I had to find all occurrences in a production db of suser_name() as a column constraint and replace it with suser_sname(). This script is only an example and does not fix any table directly. It only generates the 'Alter Table' statements which can then be saved and run at a later date.
