Hi, Can you please explain how is the "FirstIAM page of a table" is calculated in the sysindex view, in SQL server 2005. Is is stored in some system table or is it calculated every time a table is accessed? Pardon me if this sounds to be a stupid question.I am new to SQL server 2005 :-)

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

That value points to the physical page on the disk. It would be placed into the system when the table is first created.
