Why do you need to know this? Taken over responsibility for a new server? Trying to deploy a new version to an existing database? Something else?

If you have visual studio 2008 database team edition and the data dude plugin - this has a compare tool for data and schema very similar to red gates tool

you can query the INFORMATION_SCHEMA view for the information you want.

Or you can also check out OpenDBDiff at http://opendbiff.codeplex.com/

It is but you'll need a third party tool like SQL Data Compare or Capacity Manager.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
