Get DDL for any SQL 2000 table

By Lowell Izaguirre,

behind the scenes it's smart, complicated code. usage upfront is easy:

exec sp_GetDDL YourTableName
-- or

exec sp_GetDDL 'schemaname.tablename'

-- or

exec sp_GetDDL '[schemaname].[tablename]'


it produces well formatted CREATE TABLE scripts like this: note that some detail went into the spacing to make everything have a sharp appearance

[STATETBLKEY]  INT                              NOT NULL,
[INDEXTBLKEY]  INT                              NOT NULL,
[STATECODE]    CHAR(2)                          NOT NULL,
[STATENAME]    VARCHAR(50)                      NOT NULL,
[FIPS]         CHAR(3)                              NULL,
