Get the Foreign Key Hierarchy 2

By bvdbeek,

This procedure is just another approach for getting a list of tables defined in a database, ordered by dependency on other tables based on foreign key relationship.
I used it for a deployment process, where the TABLE create scripts must be executed in the correct order,because the foreign key constraints are specified in the create script as well.
You can install it in the master db and run it for any db on the same server
