Hi

Is it possible in VB.net  to generate a list of the views in a SQL database in the order that they were created?

If so what VB.net code would I use?

Thanks

>> in the order that they were created
yes, you can, you can try customize something like this:
SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT name, object_id, principal_id, schema_id, parent_object_id, type, type_desc, create_date, modify_date, is_ms_shipped, is_published, is_schema_published
FROM sys.objects
WHERE type = 'V'
ORDER BY create_date ASC

Open in new window

You can load query above into a datatable and bind it to a GridView (or similar control) to display the data.

It would be a simple T-SQL query that you can fire off against the SQL Server instance from your VB application.

SELECT *
FROM [sys].[objects] AS [so]
WHERE [so].[is_ms_shipped] = 0
  AND [so].[type] = 'V'
ORDER BY [so].[create_date] ASC;

Open in new window
