Comments when you commit on SQL Source Control

We plan to add an ID value in the comments while committing on Source Control. Is there anyway to search through the comments.

Also is the versioning being done for an object or the whole database?

Thanks in advance

    The comments are sent to the commit command of whatever Source Control system you're using. Searching these will depend on the features that your source control client offers, rather than our tool.
    From version you can also format the comment in a certain way to specify a checkin goes along with a TFS Work Item - http://www.red-gate.com/MessageBoard/viewtopic.php?t=12969

    When you link a database to source control, we effectively version the whole thing, but of course your commits may only be for one or two objects - so when you browse through the changesets in your source control system you'll see just the files affected at that particular time.

    We are using Subversion. The comments entered in the Source Control do go into subversion and Subversion does allow search through the comments.

    Thanks for your reply.
