Hi:

I know a few of these already but does anyone know where I can find a document that describes what they following sysObjects.xtypes mean?  If anything I'm most interested in the difference between U and V.  U being a table but V is also a table thus the confusion.

D   - Field names
F   - Foreign Key
FN - Function
P  - Stored Procedures
PK - Primary Key
S  - System Tables
U - User tables?
V - Hidden tables?
