Does anyone know of an easy way in Sql Server2008 to fill in the field descriptions from a table, i.e. a drag and drop capability?   I'm using temp tables in my stored procedure and I was looking for a faster way of getting the field description into my temp table declaration, i.e.,  field1 varchar(10),  field2 int,  field3 numeric (18.0) , etc.
