Find Out Tables in a Database Having Identity Columns

The simplest way I use to find out the tables in SQL Server 2005/2008 having Identity Columns is to use the query over here


USE Northwind


GO


SELECT object_name(o.object_id) AS TableName, c.name as IdentityColumn


FROM sys.columns c JOIN sys.objects  o


ON c.object_id = o.object_id


WHERE is_identity = 1


AND o.type IN ('U')




OUTPUT:


TableName    IdentityColumn


Categories    CategoryID


Shippers    ShipperID


Suppliers    SupplierID


Orders        OrderID


Products    ProductID


Employees    EmployeeID
