Check the view user_cons_columns.

Here is an example:
drop table tab2 purge;
drop table tab1 purge;

create table tab1(col1 number primary key);

create table tab2(col1 number, t1_col1 number,
constraint t2_fk foreign key(t1_col1) references tab1(col1));

select * from user_cons_columns where column_name='T1_COL1';

Open in new window

The other view is user_constraints that will give you all the constraints on a table as well as the type.

Using the example above:
select constraint_name, constraint_type from user_constraints where table_name='TAB2';

Open in new window


Then you could also use user_cons_columns using the constraint name.  Once you get the name with the above query:
select * from user_cons_columns where constraint_name='T2_FK';

Open in new window


Or combine them with a join to get everything,

Do you mean you want to adjust the column of Foreign key constraint? If yes, you must ensure the relevant values of FK columns do exist within the relevant master tables.
