I would like to attach a comment to a column.  Then I would like to displaythe comment.

How can this be done?

I tried:

COMMENT ON COLUMN employee.job  
   IS 'Title of job';  No errors.

describe employee;  Comment not shown



Thanks.

You cannot see comments with a describe command.

You need to SELCT them:
select table_name, column_name, comments
from user_col_comments where table_name = 'EMPLOYEE'
order by table_name, column_name
