This is the download page, where I’ve collected large scripts that aren’t practical to post in their entirety into a post, as well as other downloads. I’ve made an honest effort to test and verify them all, but bear in mind that I don’t have access to every type of advanced system setup and environment, so some of them may not work as planned on your particular server.

sp_ctrl3: A replacement for sp_help
A little hack that does what sp_help does – displays information about a database object. This procedure, however shows a bit more information, and uses a more “copy-paste” friendly layout so you can script the object more easily. Add “sp_ctrl3” as a keyboard shortcut in Management Studio to quickly view the definition of any database object. Download
