in reply to What is similar in mssql to $dbh->listfields($tbl) in mysql

You can use the following query to get the columns in a table from MS SQL Server:

select syscolumns.name from syscolumns join sysobjects on sysobjects.id = syscolumns.id where sysobjects.name = ?
(you supply the table name as the argument to execute to provide the data for the placeholder.

Alternatively you can use the INFORMATION_SCHEMA view which basically does the same thing:

select COLUMN_NAME from information_schema.columns where table_name = ?

[Corion]: Hehe - $work is a place where we have lots of (money) accounts, and lots of journals where every transaction is recorded. But our HR system where the accounts of hours worked and vacation days taken are stored, there is no real account of who changed ...
[Corion]: ... that balance, and when. And it seems to me that they somehow really messed up the database since the start of the year and have been frantically adding and subtracting numbers from the totals, but without trace ;)
