Hi, In my role we have a lot of Vendor applications that are extremely large and complex. Some of these are running slowly and if I was in 2005 I would query the Management views. I am particularly interested in how many times a column has been accessed (read) as opposed to how many times it has been written to, or the equivalent. sys.dm_db_index_usage_stats and others are of great help but I am not sure if they have an equivalent in 2000. Can anyone help?
