Does MS SQL server keep a record somewhere of when a column has been added to a table?

Where would I find that information?

Thanks

Unfortunately you can't, sql server does not store information on when a column was created in the sys.columns table.

Hi,
       
MS SQL SERVER does not provide any method to check the date and time of added column.
