Hi,
You can list out all FK and PK of the tables by
SELECT OBJECT_NAME(OBJECT_ID) AS NameofConstraint,
SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS SchemaName,
OBJECT_NAME(parent_object_id) AS TableName,
type_desc AS ConstraintType
FROM sys.objects 
WHERE type_desc IN ('FOREIGN_KEY_CONSTRAINT','PRIMARY_KEY_CONSTRAINT')
GO

Open in new window


as all relationships should involve PK and FK of the relevant tables.

Hi,

The simplest way, you right click on the table then choose View Dependencies -> Objects on which ... depends

Another way, use script to find out FOREIGN KEY
SELECT t.[Table Name],
t.[Foreign Key Name],
t.[Parent Table],
t.[Referenced Column]
FROM (
SELECT
 '[' + SCHEMA_NAME(fk.[schema_id]) + '].[' + OBJECT_NAME(fk.parent_object_id) + ']' AS [Table Name]
,fk.name [Foreign Key Name]
,OBJECT_NAME(fk.referenced_object_id) [Parent Table]
,COL_NAME(fkc.referenced_object_id,fkc.referenced_column_id) AS [Referenced Column]
FROM sys.foreign_keys fk
   INNER JOIN sys.foreign_key_columns fkc ON fk.object_id = fkc.constraint_object_id) t
--WHERE   t.[Table Name] =  N'[dbo].[FactFinance]'
ORDER BY [Table Name] ASC
