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


SELECT object_name(o.object_id) AS TableName, 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')


TableName    IdentityColumn

Categories    CategoryID

Shippers    ShipperID

Suppliers    SupplierID

Orders        OrderID

Products    ProductID

Employees    EmployeeID
