Navigating a Repository

SQL Server 2000

Because the objects represented in a Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Meta Data Services repository are connected through relationships, you can navigate from one object to any related object. Relationships are implemented through collections. To navigate, you must traverse a collection.

This section describes the process of retrieving objects related to a given object. This section requires an understanding of the information presented in the Repository Type Information Model (RTIM).
