BISQL # 65 – How to Find Column name by Data type in Database ? (Search table fields by data types )

Hi friends ,

I have already provided various types of search for Data Base such as

As I thought I should able to search column by data type

For example can I have list of all column which having Data type int or money .

Following SQL command is used to find column from databases based on data type

Script :

SELECT OBJECT_NAME(c.OBJECT_ID) 'Table Name', c.name 'Column Name'
FROM  sys.columns AS c
JOIN  sys.types AS t 
ON    c.user_type_id=t.user_type_id
WHERE t.name = 'money' --We have to give our required Data Type here

Output :


So in above output we got the all column name having data type as money also we have table name for more information

Sooner I am providing some search based on Primary key and Foreign key relationship if any one is working on large database its really going to be useful !!

Hope this explanation is useful for you !!
