All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
I have the following query
SELECT table_name FROM information_schema.tables WHERE table_type = 'BASE TABLE' order by table_name
and it lists a table AppFeature which I am not familiar with.
The table does not exist in my database
Why would it be listed in information_schema?
Should I try to remove it?
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
As Tibor points out, maybe it’s in a different schema than you thought, especially if it’s showing up in
sys.Tables (which you should use instead of the
INFORMATION_SCHEMA). You can get the schema name from
sys.Tables with a query like this:
SELECT SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS SchemaName, name AS TableName FROM sys.tables
Once you have the correct schema, you can try querying the table with the schema name prefixed to it, e.g.
SELECT * FROM SchemaName.AppFeature.
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
