I would like to retrieve the database schema and determine the following:

  * User Tables
  * Keys (primary keys, composite keys, no keys)
  * Relationships (all types)
  * Null possible

I am really desperate to retrieve this information and will award maximum points for solution.

Can someone please provide an example of how to retrieve the schema and the above information.

Cheers.

DataTable dt = new DataTable();
da.Fill(dt);
