Finding the Number of Columns in a Table in SQL Server

Hello everyone,

In this article, I will try to give information about finding the number of columns in the table in SQL Server.

In SQL Server, you may want to know the number of columns in the table in some cases.

You can easily do this using the code below.

;WITH cte (object_id, number_of_columns)
AS (SELECT object_id,
           COUNT(*)
    FROM sys.columns
    GROUP BY object_id)
SELECT s.name + '.' + t.name AS TableName,
       cte.number_of_columns
FROM cte
    INNER JOIN sys.tables AS t
        ON cte.object_id = t.object_id
    INNER JOIN sys.schemas AS s
        ON t.schema_id = s.schema_id
ORDER BY cte.number_of_columns DESC;

When you run the above code block, you will see the following result.
