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

In SQL Server 2005 there are no longer any system tables. There are now system catalog views which look into the system catalog to get the information. These catalog views are used to view the metadata about the objects in the database.

These views are read only and not be modified. You need to modify the object which you are looking at the data for by using the ALTER TABLE, ALTER PROCEDURE, etc statements.
