I want to query an SQL server database for specific tables and their descriptions. How do I do that? Is there a special tool needed to do this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think this could do the trick:

<pre>SELECT o.name, e.value
FROM sys.objects o JOIN sys.extended_properties e
ON o.object_id = e.major_id AND
e.name = N’MS_Description’
WHERE e.minor_id = 0
AND o.name = ‘you_table’;</pre>
