sys.sysobjects (Transact-SQL)

THIS TOPIC APPLIES TO:yesSQL Server (starting with 2008)noAzure SQL DatabaseyesAzure SQL Data Warehouse yesParallel Data Warehouse

Contains one row for each object that is created within a database, such as a constraint, default, log, rule, and stored procedure.

Important

This SQL Server 2000 system table is included as a view for backward compatibility. We recommend that you use the current SQL Server system views instead. To find the equivalent system view or views, see Mapping System Tables to System Views (Transact-SQL). This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

Column name Data type Description
name sysname Object name
id int Object identification number
xtype char(2) Object type. Can be one of the following object types:

AF = Aggregate function (CLR)

C = CHECK constraint

D = Default or DEFAULT constraint

F = FOREIGN KEY constraint

L = Log

FN = Scalar function

FS = Assembly (CLR) scalar-function

FT = Assembly (CLR) table-valued function

IF = In-lined table-function

IT = Internal table

P = Stored procedure

PC = Assembly (CLR) stored-procedure

PK = PRIMARY KEY constraint (type is K)

RF = Replication filter stored procedure

S = System table

SN = Synonym

SQ = Service queue

TA = Assembly (CLR) DML trigger

TF = Table function

TR = SQL DML Trigger

TT = Table type

U = User table

UQ = UNIQUE constraint (type is K)

V = View

X = Extended stored procedure
uid smallint Schema ID of the owner of the object. For databases upgraded from an earlier version of SQL Server, the schema ID is equal to the user ID of the owner. Overflows or returns NULL if the number of users and roles exceeds 32,767.

** Important *\* If you use any of the following SQL Server DDL statements, you must use the sys.objects catalog view instead of sys.sysobjects.
