Check column matches criteria.

Uses the SQL DESC for retrieving the table info for the column. It will help understand the parameters, if you do more research on what column information is returned by the SQL statement. Pass in null to skip checking that criteria.

Column names returned from DESC table are case sensitive and are listed: Field Type Null Key Default Extra
