I use SQL to create tables. In DB2 on IBM iSeries I use:

LABEL ON COLUMN IS and TEXT IS ?

example:

LABEL ON COLUMN JMALIBX.FDKEYS
( APRCEN IS 'Retrieval Century' ,


APRCEN TEXT IS 'Retrieval century: 0=19xx, 1=20xx' ,

what is the difference between these for other databases like MySQL etc..

I don't know MySQL at all, but on a SQL Server instance it sounds like you're talking about extended properties. The ability to add additional, meta-data, about the columns or tables within the database. You can read about them in the books online.
