sp_ctrl3

Daniel Hutmacher has released a new tool:

I designed my sp_ctrl3 procedure from the ground up to be a development tool that I can install on any dev environment that I use regularly. I wanted a detailed overview of a specific database object as well as copy-paste-friendly T-SQL code. For instance,

  • No “length” column on an int column

  • Proper scale/precision values on datatypes

  • “NULL” or “NOT NULL” instead of “yes” or “no”

  • Identity column syntax

  • “nvarchar(50)” instead of “nvarchar”, “100”

  • Column defaults

  • Complete index definitions

  • GRANT/DENY permission statements

  • The object_id of the object in sys.objects

If you use sp_help a lot, this looks like a good supplement.
