How to find foreign key dependencies in SQL Server?






The following query will help to get you started. It lists all Foreign Key Relationships within the current database.



SELECT K_Table = FK.TABLE_NAME, FK_Column = CU.COLUMN_NAME, PK_Table = PK.TABLE_NAME, PK_Column = PT.COLUMN_NAME, Constraint_Name = C.CONSTRAINT_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.REFERENTIAL_CONSTRAINTS C INNER JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTS FK ON C.CONSTRAINT_NAME = FK.CONSTRAINT_NAME INNER JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTS PK ON C.UNIQUE_CONSTRAINT_NAME = PK.CONSTRAINT_NAME INNER JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.KEY_COLUMN_USAGE CU ON C.CONSTRAINT_NAME = CU.CONSTRAINT_NAME INNER JOIN ( SELECT i1.TABLE_NAME, i2.COLUMN_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTS i1 INNER JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.KEY_COLUMN_USAGE i2 ON i1.CONSTRAINT_NAME = i2.CONSTRAINT_NAME WHERE i1.CONSTRAINT_TYPE = 'PRIMARY KEY' ) PT ON PT.TABLE_NAME = PK.TABLE_NAME
