Create list column, if column does not exist programmatically

Hi, I want to create a column in  the list programmatically. I tried this, and it created the column. But I would like to check if the list column already exist and if column does not exist, would like to create the column. How to check if a list column exists and if it does not exist, create the list column. I have used this code: [CODE] SPList MyList; MyList = currentweb.Lists[Constants.listname]; MyList.Fields.Add("FilesCount", SPFieldType.Number, false); MyList.DefaultView.ViewFields.Add("FilesCount"); MyList.DefaultView.Update(); [/CODE] Thank you

Unable to create index for view

Hi, I'm including the script for my ProductCategories table but I think it might be very beneficial for you to understand what I'm doing first: As the name implies, the ProducttCategories table is where I store all product categories for an ecommerce site. Furthermore, the CategoryHierarchy column uses the HierarchyID datatype in SQL Server 2008 so that I can have a hierarchy and make suggestions to users who are looking for a product in a category along with all its child categories. Also, in order to make the site as user friendly as possible, I've implemented friendly URLs. Therefore, I need to do a reverse look up when someone requests: Electronics-DigitalCameras-DigitalSLRs to figure out the CategoryID (int) for the Digital SLR's category. I wanted to create an index in the database to make sure these look ups would have pretty good performance and that's where I got stuck. First, I got a message that told me that I couldn't create an index because my view was not bound to schema. And when I tried to do that, I got another error saying "Cannot schema bind view 'dbo.vwProductCategoriesAndPathsOrdered2' because name 'ProductCategories' is invalid for schema binding. Names must be in two-part format and an object cannot reference itself." The view simply creates a category path that looks like this: Electronics > Digital Cameras > Digital SLRs I'd

Schema comparer mistake in table-valued function (Nullability in column definition)

Hello. In my database i have table valued function. In its definition nullability of column is not set directly. This column has a user-defined data type. So the question is: is this column nullable? As i can see here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174979.aspx   When column nullability is not explicitly specified, column nullability follows the rules shown in the following table. Column data type Rule Alias data type The Database Engine uses the nullability that is specified when the data type was created. To determine the default nullability of the data type, use sp_help. It should be not null, as user defined type is declared as not null. SMO says, that column is not null, but schema compare says it is nullable. Who is wrong and why?
