The query below lists tables and their primary key (PK) constraint names. By browsing the list, you can spot which tables have and which don't have primary keys.
See also: tables without primary keys.
select schema_name(tab.schema_id) as [schema_name], tab.[name] as table_name, pk.[name] as pk_name, substring(column_names, 1, len(column_names)-1) as [columns] from sys.tables as tab left outer join sys.indexes as pk on tab.object_id = pk.object_id and pk.is_primary_key = 1 cross apply (select col.[name] + ', ' from sys.index_columns as ic inner join sys.columns as col on ic.object_id = col.object_id and ic.column_id = col.column_id where ic.object_id = tab.object_id and ic.index_id = pk.index_id order by col.column_id for xml path ('') ) D (column_names) order by schema_name(tab.schema_id), tab.[name]
- schema_name - name of the schema
- table_name - name of the table
- pk_name - primary key constraint name
- columns - list of PK columns separated by ','
- One row: represents one table in a database
- Scope of rows: all tables in a database
- Ordered by schema, table name
You can see what the names of PK constraints are for each table and which tables don't have PKs at all.
