  • Hi, thanks for the good article.

    I believe this article was reposted from the original~12 years ago, i'll see if i can recover the links. the proc has gone through a slew of changes since then..matching the created case of all objects, and a ton of improvements.

    grab the code snippets form page 8 of this thread: it houses the most updated versions of this code.

    https://www.sqlservercentral.com/forums/topic/get-ddl-for-any-sql-2005-table/page/8

    there are things this code does not do, temporal tables , in memory optimized, partitioned tables, tables with custom data type names over 16 chars, and a few other exotics, like xml indexes.

    let us know if you have any questions in that other thread.

  • I've downloaded those files and added them to the article in a zip file.

  • I have tried to change the line delimiter to '<br>' but the output is not changing.

    Is this possible to achieve?

  • you'll want to change the definition of @VbCrLf from VARCHAR(2) to something larger, and like this, maybe?

    and make sure it is not being re-assigned to CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) later.

    you'll end up needing to cleanup theoutput with html entities code for greater than and less than, as well, but it should work.

    DECLARE @VbCrLf VARCHAR(10) ='<br />' + CHAR(13) + CHAR(10)
