Table Hierarchy goes CS

At the urging of a friend, this script is being updated for those that are dealing with Case Sensitivity.  The first few rounds, I neglected Case Sensitivity and never tested for that.  It makes sense to have this script updated for that if anybody out there is using it.

The updates are simple enough, it is just frustrating if you run into an error caused by CS and then you waste time troubleshooting it.  Believe me, it has happened to me recently – and I don’t much like it.

Without further ado, here is the udpated script:

DECLARE    @StartParentTable    VARCHAR(256)
 
SELECT @StartParentTable = 'Calendar'
 
;With Hierarchy (ParentTable,ParentColumn, ChildTable,ChildColumn, FKLevel, SortCol) AS (
  SELECT OBJECT_NAME(sfk.referenced_object_id) AS ParentTable
          ,COL_NAME(sfkc.referenced_object_id,sfkc.referenced_column_id) AS ParentColumn
          ,OBJECT_NAME(sfk.Parent_object_id) AS ChildTable
          ,COL_NAME(sfkc.parent_object_id,sfkc.parent_column_id) AS ChildColumn
          ,0 AS FKLevel
          ,CAST('.'+CAST(OBJECT_NAME(sfk.referenced_object_id) AS VARCHAR(MAX))+'.' AS VARCHAR(MAX))
      FROM sys.foreign_key_columns sfkc
          INNER Join sys.foreign_keys sfk
              ON sfkc.constraint_object_id = sfk.OBJECT_ID
      WHERE OBJECT_NAME(sfk.referenced_object_id) = @StartParentTable
  UNION All
  SELECT OBJECT_NAME(sfk.referenced_object_id) AS ParentTable
          ,COL_NAME(sfkc.referenced_object_id,sfkc.referenced_column_id) AS ParentColumn
          ,OBJECT_NAME(sfk.Parent_object_id) AS ChildTable
          ,COL_NAME(sfkc.parent_object_id,sfkc.parent_column_id) AS ChildColumn
          ,FKLevel + 1
          ,STUFF(('.' + F.SortCol + CAST(CAST(OBJECT_NAME(sfk.referenced_object_id) AS VARCHAR(MAX)) + '.' AS VARCHAR(MAX))
                      ),1,1,'')
      FROM sys.foreign_keys sfk
          INNER Join Hierarchy F
              ON OBJECT_NAME(sfk.referenced_object_id) = F.ChildTable

      ,COL_NAME(sfkc.referenced_object_id,sfkc.referenced_column_id) AS ParentColumn

      And F.ChildTable not IN (SELECT ChildTable FROM Hierarchy)

SELECT ParentTable,ParentColumn, ChildTable,ChildColumn, FKLevel, SortCol
FROM Hierarchy
UNION All

  OPTION (maxrecursion 500)

Still on the todo list is to make this bad boy run faster in the event of circular references.  If you find something else with it that you think could use adjusting, let me know.
