Hello,

I have very limited knowledge on sql and especially on creating TABLE. I have the following request from a customer to create table on the sql server. The customer just wants the shell of the table to be created where she wants to put data which is in Access database. I have sql server enterprise manager version - 8
 

ColumnName     Type            Size
Date                   Date/Time    8
AllowZeroLength: False
Attributes: Fixed Size
CollatingOrder: General
ColumnHidden: False
ColumnOrder: 1
ColumnWidth: 1740
DataUpdatable: False
Format: mm\/dd\/yy hh:nn:ss
GUID: {guid {69689C6F-9A73-4373-914D-3A71FE40F601}}
IMEMode: 0
IMESentenceMode: 3
OrdinalPosition: 0
Required: False
SourceField: Date
SourceTable: Dwnlds06

Column name     Type       size
Svc ID                Text        50
AllowZeroLength: True
Attributes: Variable Length
CollatingOrder: General
ColumnHidden: False
ColumnOrder: Default
ColumnWidth: Default
DataUpdatable: False
DisplayControl: Text Box
GUID: {guid {F8F8E05D-BD05-4145-885C-015B34EF11BB}}
IMEMode: 0
IMESentenceMode: 3
OrdinalPosition: 1
Required: False
SourceField: Svc ID
SourceTable: Dwnlds06
UnicodeCompression: False

There are few more columns and they have almost the same specifics. How do I create a table with these specifics on the Sql server. I have created simple table with limited specifications before. But for these columns I do not see where I can specify these characters. Hope you can help me

Thanks for your response. What about the these specifics? -

CollatingOrder: General
ColumnHidden: False
ColumnOrder: Default
ColumnWidth: Default
DataUpdatable: False
DisplayControl: Text Box
GUID: {guid {F8F8E05D-BD05-4145-885C-015B34EF11BB}}
IMEMode: 0
IMESentenceMode: 3
OrdinalPosition: 1
Required: False

I did create the table successfully.Are these specifics in default? What is GUID? Sorry if I am asking stupid questions.

Thanks a lot

CollatingOrder: General ---- Default Collation order, you dont have to mention anything
ColumnHidden: False    --- no hidden column concept in sql server
ColumnOrder: Default   --- Nothing to do with this
ColumnWidth: Default   --- for the datetime datatype this will be fixed
DataUpdatable: False    ---  
DisplayControl: Text Box ---
GUID: {guid {F8F8E05D-BD05-4145-885C-015B34EF11BB}}---
IMEMode: 0----
IMESentenceMode: 3 ---
OrdinalPosition: 1 --- first column
Required: False   --- Whether NULLable or not, false means nullable

the others are the properties from the db designer
