I'm playing around with these tables relating to some utility software.
I notice that if you have a date in a table that the reported length is 4 - which while technically accurate is fundamentally useless as a program can never see it as that length. The output from DSPFFD on the other hand shows the length as 8 or 10 based on the date format.
Am I missing something? Is there another table or a column in either SYSCOLUMNS or SYSCOLUMN2 that does accurately represent the size of the column or do I have to calculate it?
