Should be able to accomplish this with a join of sys.columns (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms176106.aspx) and sys.tables (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187406.aspx)

Try This:

select st.name,sc.name,sc.is_nullable from sys.columns sc
inner join sys.tables st on sc.object_id = st.object_id
where sc.name like 'CreatedDtm'
