Hello,

I'm using Dependency tracker and after entering the SQL Server Instance, and selecting the needed database, i see a "Objects in Selected Database". In that window i am not able to see any such objects (tables, views, SPs, functions) etc.

Hello,

The most obvious thing to check first is that the logon you use to connect to SQL Server has VIEW DEFINITION granted to it. This security right allows you to see the definition of schema objects in the database.

Hi Brain,

I just created a new test database through Windows Authentication in SQL Management Studio and then try viewing it through the dependency tracker but nothing was seen here.

To explain more a bit, you can the see image at http://tinypic.com/r/9jlxxw/5

Hello Brian,

I am using SQL Server 2008 so i guess the version has to be 6.5 or higher. Not sure though. Can you please guide me for the same so that i can check that and update you the same.

Thanks!

You can run the following query:
Code:
exec sp_dbcmptlevel 'dbname'
where dbname is the name of the database.

Just to completely rule out permissions, have you tried connecting using the SA account?

Hi,

Sorry, everyone is stumped and since there is no error messge we have to make educated guesses as to what is wrong. Is the SQL Server the Express version? That's the only suspicion we have at the moment.

Yes Brian, this is SQL Express with advanced service (2008) version.
