Returns one row for views that can be accessed by the current user in the current database.

To retrieve information from these views, specify the fully qualified name of INFORMATION_SCHEMA.view_name.

Column name

Data type

Description

TABLE_CATALOG

nvarchar(128)

View qualifier.

TABLE_SCHEMA

nvarchar(128)

Name of schema that contains the view.

Important noteImportant
Do not use INFORMATION_SCHEMA views to determine the schema of an object. The only reliable way to find the schema of a object is to query the sys.objects catalog view.

TABLE_NAME

nvarchar(128)

View name.

VIEW_DEFINITION

nvarchar(4000)

If the length of definition is larger than nvarchar(4000), this column is NULL. Otherwise, this column is the view definition text.

CHECK_OPTION

varchar(7)

Type of WITH CHECK OPTION. Is CASCADE if the original view was created by using the WITH CHECK OPTION. Otherwise, NONE is returned.

IS_UPDATABLE

varchar(2)

Specifies whether the view is updatable. Always returns NO.
