Script to Define User-Defined Data Types

By Angie,

Our DBA and I (I'm a PowerBuilder programmer) decided to plunge head-first into UDTs. After reading the message boards, I thought maybe we could come up with a way to make them work. My solution is this stored proc. There are some assumptions made that work for our needs and some extra work that was required to follow our database design (like the override), but overall it has worked well for us so far. We have only applied it to new tables so I can't vouch for the performance if you were to change a UDT that has been bound to hundreds of columns. I apologize for the horrible wrapping below, but if you copy it to Query Analyzer it will look much better. I'd love any suggestions on how to improve it. Thanks! - Angie
