List all Columns in Server Part 2

,

Following on from the initial post this Script allows for a view on datatypes and lengths on a column.

The result can be input into a Table and a report generated of it. This allows an individual quick access to a column with any references.

Hope you find this handy

--create temp tables

create table #test(id int identity (1,1), DBName nvarchar(50))

create table #test1(id int identity (1,1), DBName nvarchar(50), TableName Nvarchar(200), columnName nvarchar(200), DataType nvarchar(100), Length int)

create table #test2(id int identity (1,1), DBName nvarchar(50), TableName Nvarchar(200), tbi int,columnName nvarchar(200))



--get a list of DBs

insert into #test(DBName)

select name from master.dbo.sysDatabases where sid !=0x01 



--declare variables

declare @p int 

declare @max int

set @i=1

--insert into MetaData

select @svr as Svr,

Length from #test1

order by tablename



--CleanUp

drop table #test

drop table #test1

drop table #test2





--Select * from MetaData
