Just like we use sp_helptext from Query analyzer to view SP details, which SP will allow me to view table structure from SQL Query Analyzer?

you can also use the following query:
select * from information_schema.columns where tablename = 'table name'

sp_helptable 'tablename' and select * from information_schema.columns where tablename = 'table name' gave me error. But sp_columns 'tablename' and Sp_help 'tablename' worked.
