I have created a synonym as follows
CREATE SYNONYM [dbo].[ms4] FOR [local].[Northwind].[dbo].[Products]
and then i want to retrieve a same SQL definition statement from one of the system/db's view so i fired
select text from syscomments where id = object_id('dbo.[ms4]')
but 'text' from syscomments returns text for all other types other then synomym
syscomments contains entries for each view, rule, default, trigger, CHECK constraint, DEFAULT constraint, and stored procedure within the database. The text column contains the original SQL definition statements.
so from which table/view i can get original SQL definition statements for synonym. Its not there in syscomments . so where is they stored?
