Does anybody know of a way to determine the last date/time a table has been accessed (query/update)?
I've done enough research to know that this isn't easy. However, perhaps somebody has figured out a way through some of the stats that SQL Server keeps to determine the last access of a table.
I have recently been put on a team that had no DBA and has a number of databases out there. They would like to determine which databases are inactive and get rid of them. I am a developer and haven't had much SQL Server Administration experience.
Any info will help greatly!
Is there any T-SQL Script or SP that would determine what tables public users have access to? I only ask because I would like to make sure that any users with public rights do not have access to SYSXLOGINS, SYSDATABASES, SYSOBJECTS, SYSCOLUMNS and mswebtasks tables. Thanks -Kyle
Hey there. I must write a stored procedure to update a table and want to make sure the ID used in both Acceptance and Production will have the necessary access. The ID will inherit it's access to the resource though a ROLE. Wondering if there are queries out there that can traverse for example, the roles/id's that have access to it... Thx!
What is the most reliable way to determine the last LSN of a database? I've looked in sys.database_files to no avail. I've also looked in msdb.dbo.backupset which is accurate but only based on backups already performed not the current state of the database.
Hi all, I'm writing a procedure that require to access a table from a different database but from the same server. Can the procedure able to read this table. If so how should my procedure use that table? Thank you for all your help.
Hi, I have 2 databases in SQL Server named Database1 and Database2. I have logged in Database1. I would like to see the records of the Table which is present in Database2. Could anyone please tell me How to access the tables in Database2 from Database1?
I am trying to establish the date a database was last used.
At first i checked out sp_helpfile and sysfiles to see if there was a date last modified, i also tried using xp_cmdshell to check the date on the actual .mdf or .ldf on the o/s but if the file has not grown the date will be the create date.
I need to establish the date a database was last used, either the last time someone logged into it or the last time any sort of command was run against the database, i cannot use sysprocesses as there are no connections to the database, so i need to determine the last time there actually were any processes run against this database.
And i need to use tsql, checking audit logs etc is not viable, can anyone help ?

I am working on Sql Server 2012. and I have multiple databases there. Out of those, i want to move one of my databases to other SQL server 2012, For that i was trying to get approximate size of my database on current server. As i don't have the admin rights, so i can't get that. Can i get the approximate size by right clicking on database and by using the size property Under Database category to get the size idea?
I'm new to this whole trigger 'thing', so forgive me if this question has been asked and answered a few times already.
I'm in the process of writing a trigger that will send an e-mail to an application admin when any table within a given database is altered (IE, a column is added or deleted). I can get the e-mail to fire off when that happens without any issue, but I'd like to be able to let the admin know which table was tweaked and what new column was added.
Is this a relatively easy thing to do and I'm just not finding the right built-in variable name, or does something more need to be done?
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES WHERE TABLE_NAME = 'tab_db1'The above query will give the information of the table 'tab_db1' if it is available in the current database (say db1) connected.How can i access the information of a table (say 'tab_db2') which is created under a different database say db2 from the current db connected say db1.I tried the above query with changing the table_name to 'db2..tab_db2'but went invain.sysobjects also dint work..Any help on this will be appreciated..regards,Sathya V
Is it possible to determine the data flow within a database? e.g. I start by adding/inserting a record in MainTable1, then through a trigger SubTable1, SubTable2 have records inserted into, SubTable3 has a record updated into, then a StoredProcedure1 is run which updates first SubTable4, then a StoredProcedure2 is run which adds a record in SubTable5. So by simply adding a record in MainTable1, I affect 5 other tables.
Imagine a more complex process than this one now (which I'm currently facing and I want to win time and precision; I will still investigate it myself (if I will find an answer first - I will post it here)) Is there a way I could "extract" this flow by using T-SQL?
