Sql.Database(server as text, database as text, optional options as nullable record) as table

Returns a table of SQL tables, views, and stored functions from the SQL Server database database on server server. The port may be optionally specified with the server, separated by a colon or a comma. An optional record parameter, options, may be specified to control the following options:

  • Query : A native SQL query used to retrieve data. If the query produces multiple result sets, only the first will be returned.
  • CreateNavigationProperties : A logical (true/false) that sets whether to generate navigation properties on the returned values (default is true).
  • NavigationPropertyNameGenerator : A function that is used for the creation of names for navigation properties.
  • MaxDegreeOfParallelism : A number that sets the value of the "maxdop" query clause in the generated SQL query.
  • CommandTimeout : A duration which controls how long the server-side query is allowed to run before it is canceled. The default value is ten minutes.
  • ConnectionTimeout : A duration which controls how long to wait before abandoning an attempt to make a connection to the server. The default value is driver-dependent.
  • HierarchicalNavigation : A logical (true/false) that sets whether to view the tables grouped by their schema names (default is false).
  • MultiSubnetFailover : A logical (true/false) that sets the value of the "MultiSubnetFailover" property in the connection string (default is false).

The record parameter is specified as [option1 = value1, option2 = value2...] or [Query = "select ..."] for example.
