Supported for
Microsoft SQL Server (as User Defined Datatype)
Sybase Anywhere


Domains, also sometimes called "User Defined Datatypes" are a powerful construct to create more uniform table definitions and can include check constraints.


The Domain Editor offers you the possibility to create, alter and drop domains. If you add a domain, any opened Table Editor will add these domains to it's domain drop down box. So you can quickly create a new domain while creating a table.


Below is an example, take from the InterBase Domain Editor:

Depending on your server-type, more or less tabs will be visible.


The "{..}" button will turn the current line or text selection in the Check Constraint box into a comment, or remove the comment from the current line.
