comment Creating site column with a specific GUID
@Ashish I meant to say: should CC1E421C-29BE-4373-81D0-55D5D64B2E3D be replace by 891B57CF-B826-4B0C-9EDF-8948C824D96F in the above code? I see that ID of MyFieldDefXml is not really being checked. Or may be I am missing something?

Ashish, Thank you. I will try this out. But should the Field "ID" take the value of "MyFieldId" in the code above?

comment Creating site column without using features
Laurie, thank you for your answer. This is very helpful. I think I will give the console app a try. The reason I am not very happy about features is because I cannot delete one site column or content type from a given featuer - hence, as an end user I dont have much control over my own artifacts. The same issue will arise during upgrades for me as a developer.

Ashish, could you suggest a web-site or a textbook that can help me go down this path? Thank you.

comment Creating site column without using features
I have created the columns using both the UI and Features. But since both these approaches are kind of rigid per maintainability, I would like to try the Object Model. To that end, I have not found a definitive guide that can help me jump start this project.
