HELP!! I have a deployment script that is building tables and setting default values to a column. I have built into it if exists, so that it can be rerunnable. The default constraints are system named when created I guess because they are funky names. So on the rerun, they are not being dropped due to the fact that I don't know those funky names. How do I drop the DFs when I don't know their names? Thank you in advance! w00t


Thank you!!,

This should get you started. If you want to know the column to script it out you can use the parent_column_id and join to sys.columns.



SELECT OBJECT_NAME(parent_object_id) AS TableName, name AS DefaultName,*
FROM sys.default_constraints
