In this post, I provide one script to find all default values of the columns in SQL Server.
Sometimes, it is required to find out default values of a column which is creating a problem in the data.
You can easily find default values in the table definition script, but if you require to report all default values of a database, you desire only one script to find all default values.
Using below script you can find all default values and also if you require to find particular default value, you can add a filter in WHERE clause.
SO.NAME AS TableName
,SC.NAME AS ColumnName
,SSM.TEXT AS DefaultValue
FROM dbo.sysobjects AS SO
INNER JOIN dbo.syscolumns AS SC
ON SO.id = SC.id
INNER JOIN dbo.syscomments AS SSM
ON SC.cdefault = SSM.id
WHERE SO.xtype = 'U'
ORDER BY SO.NAME,SC.colid
