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?
... if there isn't and I think so, it wouldn't be to hard to provide a view of my own, showing up whatever I need. Date Format of the job is known at runtime and could be retrieved from an external function, calcualting a length (without or with seperators) could be done by a join to a little table or by a function too and functions could be used in create view. Or am I missing something?
