How to get list of all view created by a user

How can I get a list of all the views created by a particular in SQL Server. ADOX views object doen't work properly with SQL oledb provider. I cannot use SQL-DMO due to licence problem.
How can I get just the names of all view created by user by querying the database

You are right, it's internal use only... and the values can differ for sometimes no obvious reason.
For views however, i am sure it can be used reliable way.

I don't need any system views, only user views are required

What about these queries:

select * from sysobjects
where xtype = 'V'
and uid > 1

or

select * from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.views
where TABLE_SCHEMA <> 'dbo'

Cheers

I need all user views created by a paricular user. What if a particular user has dbo privilege? I won't get even the user created views in that case

You are right, there is no indication WHO did actually create the table, only to which user the tables are assigned...

There should be some way to filter out this information, enterprise manager displays the type of view also (system or user).

In fact, in the systems table there is a column that indicates if the views are build by the system, but not by which user they are created. Take the following example:

You have USERA and USERB, both with dbo permissions...

USERA connects to the server, and executes the following script:
CREATE VIEW USERB.MyViewA
AS SELECT ...
GO
CREATE VIEW USERA.MyViewB
AS SELECT ...
GO
CREATE VIEW MyViewC
AS SELECT ...

and USERB connects, and executes a similar script:
CREATE VIEW USERB.MyView1
AS SELECT ...
GO
CREATE VIEW USERA.MyView2
AS SELECT ...
GO
CREATE VIEW MyView3
AS SELECT ...


If you look at EM, you will have 6 views:
USERB.MyViewA
USERA.MyViewB
USERA.MyViewC
USERB.MyView1
USERA.MyView2
USERB.MyView3

BUT not all the views that are owned by UserA are actually created by UserA (and vice-versa). All the views have the bit "systemobject" set to false, but there is no indication to which user actually create it...

Cheers

Can you tell me where this systemobject flag can be found, even that would be useful to me. Thanks
