I have a table with    col1 int identity
                       col2  nvarchar(500)

How can I programmatically alter the table from int identity to int, and also from int to int identity.
I do not want to use enterprise manager.
Thanks for your response.

pass the following SQL
--to create a table
create table ##test (id int identity)

--to remove identity from a column
alter table ##test alter column id int

i dont think you can make a column identity after the table is created
