comment How do you keep track of the meaning of your SQL fields?
The description field is an extended property which is stored within the database. This can be used in a productive way, as an example: A previous environment I worked in used extended properties in conjunction with a CodeSmith generator product that would generate all of our stored procedures for read, inserts and deletes. We also utilized extended properties to build our data dictionaries.
