How to list all system functions

    I have a problem to show all system functions(e.g. SUBSTRING, GETDATE, UPPER) that available in MSSQL Server. I need the list for showing at the web page - enable user to choose which one he/she want to use.

    I believe MSSQL Server must have 1 or more store procedures or system tables that stored the system functions.

    Please help me. Thanks in advance

    I don't think that there are any procedures or functions that give you this information... Most of these are just built in as part of the SQL syntax...

    Getting them out of the BOL help files may be your best bet...

    True, no easy help other than querying agianst SYSOBJECTS which is discouraged to do so.
    Refer to Books online for system functions topic.

    Even the system databases' sysobjects tables would only provide sytem UDFs rather than in-built functions.

    The BOL page that you might want to partially copy and paste onto your web page is "Deterministic and Nondeterministic Functions".
