I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can check the last update statistics date for each index with the following script:
SELECT OBJECT_NAME(i.object_id) TableName, IndexName, STATS_DATE(i.object_id, i.index_id) LastStatsDate
FROM sys.indexes i
WHERE i.object_id > 100000 

Open in new window

Now, if the index needs a full scan or not, it up to you to decide that. There's no command that will give you that information as it depends uniquely on your decision.
