Thanks Rick!  I found out elsewhere that I wanted to DELETE rather than
DROP.  Could I get an explanation of what and index is?  I thought it was

Hi Chris,

The following query will list out the names of all the indexes in the

select t.tablename, c.conglomeratename
from sys.systables t, sys.sysconglomerates c
where c.isindex and t.tableid = c.tableid
order by tablename, conglomeratename

Hope this helps,

In ALL things, strive for ><>,
