How we can find last accessed date time of a SQL Server 2008 database apart from using the DMV sys.dm_db_index_usage_stats because it will show result only for database tables having indexes.
Any audit or trace option...?

My q2uestion would be.... why do you have tables that people access that have no indexes?

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

We are in the process of retiring unused DBs. These databases and tables were created few years back.
Also, its not necessary that a table should have index.
