Distinct count of the column


Database Name | Table Name | No.Of columns | No.Of Rows Count | Column name  | Attribute (DataType)| Min Value | Max Value | Non null count | Distinct count of the column

SWISS_WIP | tbl_Files | 5 | 150 | Prod_Beg | int | 25 | 123212 | 123100 | 10
SWISS_WIP | tbl_Files | 5 | 150 | File_MD5| varchar | null | null | 12232| null

From INFORMATION_SCHEMA.columns we can get following information:

Database Name,
Table Name,
No.Of columns,
Column name,
Attribute (DataType),
Max Length,
Non null count

SELECT Table_CATALOG DBName, Table_Name, MAX(Ordinal_position) OVER(Partition by Table_name) NoOfColumns, Column_name,
Data_Type, Coalesce(CHARACTER_MAXIMUM_LENGTH, Numeric_precision, datetime_Precision) MaxLength,
SUM( CASE WHEN IS_NULLABLE = 'NO' THEN 1 END) OVER(Partition by Table_name) NonNullCount
