Finding Primary Keys in Oracle

A Query i use from time to time to find out which primary key columns are defined for a certain table:


SELECT cols.table_name, cols.column_name, cols.position, cons.status, cons.owner
FROM all_constraints cons, all_cons_columns cols
WHERE cols.table_name = '_TABLE-NAME_'
AND cons.constraint_type = 'P' -- search for primary keys only
AND cons.constraint_name = cols.constraint_name
AND cons.owner = cols.owner
AND cons.owner = '_SCHEMA_OWNER_'
ORDER BY cols.table_name, cols.position;

Query thanks to Ritchie
