2884862 - sp_depends does not show object references - SAP ASE


  • A table was dropped by mistake and then it was re-created and loaded with the data. 
  • There are three objects constraints (stored procedures) on this table and none of them shows up in sp_depends on the table.
  • Two out of these three objects constraints (stored procedures) are rebuilt but none of those two still shows in sp_depends on the table.
  • Here is what we get:

sp_depends mytable 
Object doesn't reference any object and no objects reference it.        
Dependent objects that reference all columns in the table. Use sp_depends on each column to get more information.       
Columns referenced in stored procedures, views or triggers are not included in this report.
