He probably means "Extended properties"

If you're creating the table through Enterprise Manager, then there's a "Description" field that can be filled in.

Through a script, it would be something like:

SET @v = N'Field Desription Here'
EXECUTE sp_addextendedproperty N'MS_Description', @v, N'user', N'dbo', N'table', N'TableName', N'column', N'FieldName'

Enterprise Manager is the simplest way, but then you can generate a script of the changes you made, so you can see what the actual code is.
