Is there a way to get the column description from the tables in a db?

I created a script to get table and column name, but I have not a clue if I can get the field description. Anyone knows where, if possbile, to get those field descriptions?


What I have is

Column1 column2
Table Column Name
Employee FName

we need

Column1 column2 column3
Table Column Name Column Desc
Employee FName First Name

Any suggestions?

Thank you
