Is there a way to print a table definition in SQL Server Management Studio?  I am using SQLExpress 2008.  I can print the tables in my database by going to DatabaseDiagrams, but it does not give me the type of the field or the length.

Thanks

Open the diagram, right-click a table, click "Table View" (the first item in the context menu), then select how you want to display that table.  There are several options, but "Standard" is probably what you want.

Hope this helps,
