Subject:RE: Need query to determine different column definitions across
tables
View as plain text  
Another flavor to try:

SELECT  COLUMN_NAME,
        group_concat(db_tbl SEPARATOR ' ') as db_tbls,
        group_concat(DISTINCT info SEPARATOR ' | ') as infos
    FROM (
        SELECT  COLUMN_NAME,
                concat(TABLE_SCHEMA, '.', TABLE_NAME) as db_tbl,
                concat(COLUMN_TYPE, ' ', CHARACTER_SET_NAME) as info
            FROM  `COLUMNS`
            WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = 'test'  -- optionally restrict to a db
         ) x
    GROUP BY COLUMN_NAME
    HAVING infos LIKE '%|%';

Notice how it uses GROUP_CONCAT() and HAVING to do the filtering.
