MSSQL: finding column names

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/10

This small query gives you the tables, views and columns having characters likely not translating directly to ORM identifiers because they contain other characters than a-zA-Z0-9:

select *
where 1=0
or c.TABLE_NAME LIKE '%[^a-zA-Z0-9_]%'
or c.COLUMN_NAME LIKE '%[^a-zA-Z0-9_]%'

The view [WayBack] COLUMNS (Transact-SQL) | Microsoft Docs¬†in the … has been around since at least SQL Server 2000, so this is a pretty safe method for finding those columns.

As a bonus, I learned that SQL Server supports a subset of regular expression matches in like also since at least SQL Server 2000: LIKE.

Via [WayBack] SQL Server 2008 query to find rows containing non-alphanumeric characters in a column РStack Overflow.
