Constraint on existing table, multiple columns

P: 6
I need to add a constraint to every varchar column in an entire database to not allow '<script>' to be inserted or updated. Any resource you know of that would explain how I would go about this? I was thinking to program it with a stored procedure. Something like, get a table name, get all the varchar columns in that table, build the constraint statement on the fly, execute the statement, go to the next table. If I had that, then I could save that stored procedure and change it to accomodate dropping the constraint, when needed, to perform maintenance that would conflict.

Looks like you're thinking of creating a stored proc that you can execute and avoid creating the script on every table.

Yes, your technique would do. It's a one-time thing anyway...
