sysdepends gets out of whack : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

When we recreate a table or view in our decision support database which has other views built over it, the sysdepends table no longer has the correct pointers. Any advice on how I can get this back in sync? Recreating the views would work, but only if I do them in the exact right order (if viewA is built over viewB and I recreat them all in order, viewB gets created second and the dependencies are lost again). I want to get this straightened out so I can keep it all maintained properly on a go-forward basis by always checking dependencies before recreating any table or view, and also recreating the dependent views afterwards....thanks!

Re: sysdepends gets out of whack


If the database does not have circular dependencies, you should be able to recreate sysdepends just by running your script two times in a row.

Hope this helps,
