Does anyone know how to add a description to a SQL Server column by running a script? I know you can add a description when you create the column using SQL Server Management Studio.
How can I script this so when my SQL scripts create the column, a description for the column is also added?
I'd say you will probably want to do it using the sp_addextendedproperty stored proc.
Microsoft has some good documentation on it but you can also look at this link:
EXEC sp_addextendedproperty @name = N'MS_Description', @value = 'Hey, here is my description!', @level0type = N'Schema', @level0name = 'yourschema', @level1type = N'Table', @level1name = 'YourTable', @level2type = N'Column', @level2name = 'yourColumn'; GO
