How to avoid using INSERT without a column list?

It is undesirable to include insert TableX values(...) in your code or stored procedure because if a column is added or deleted, you can expect a sure bug.

With sp_help TableX you can easily get a column list. Just cut and paste it, add commas and you have the insert with the explicit column names.

You can also do this from the Object Explorer in SSMS via the Script Table option.
