Just replace "[your-schema-name-here]" in the following query with your schema name. Hope it comes handy to some of you out there.


Select OBJECT_TYPE,OBJECT_NAME
FROM
(
Select 'TABLE' as OBJECT_TYPE, TABLE_NAME as OBJECT_NAME, TABLE_SCHEMA as OBJECT_SCHEMA from information_schema.VIEWS
Union
Select 'VIEW' as OBJECT_TYPE, TABLE_NAME as OBJECT_NAME, TABLE_SCHEMA as OBJECT_SCHEMA from information_schema.VIEWS
Union
Select 'INDEX[Type:Name:Table]' as OBJECT_TYPE, concat(CONSTRAINT_TYPE,' : ',CONSTRAINT_NAME,' : ',TABLE_NAME) as OBJECT_NAME,TABLE_SCHEMA AS OBJECT_SCHEMA from information_schema.TABLE_CONSTRAINTS
Union
Select 'Procedure/Functions' as OBJECT_TYPE, ROUTINE_NAME as OBJECT_NAME, ROUTINE_SCHEMA as OBJECT_SCHEMA from information_schema.ROUTINES
) R

Where R.OBJECT_SCHEMA=[your-schema-name-here]

Select * from tab;

this will work in ORACLE

For SQL Server use:

SELECT * FROM sysobjects where xtype ='U'

See sp_help will list up all the views along with the tables in the database.
The question is to have the table only.
rather this
select * from sysobjects where type like '%u' order by name

Query may help
