Back in 2k, there was a backdoor that allowed you to create an INFORMATION_SCHEMA view. Backdoor yeilds a permissions error in 2k5. Is there any way to create a view in Master that would be accessabile from all databases like the Information_Schema views? Thanks for the help... --Jeff Moden

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Not that I know of. Everytime I’ve tried to create an object in the sys schema I get an error.

What’s the end result of the view you are trying to create? SQL 2005 has tons of data exposed via the DMVs.
