Find all Indexes that have Included Columns in SQL Server Database

To find all indexes in all user tables in a SQL Server database that have included columns, you can use this query:

SELECT DB_NAME() AS Database_Name
, sc.name AS Schema_Name
, o.name AS Table_Name
, o.type_desc AS 'Table_Type'
, i.name AS Index_Name
, c.name AS 'Included_Column_Name'
, i.type_desc AS Index_Type
FROM sys.indexes i
INNER JOIN sys.objects o ON i.object_id = o.object_id
INNER JOIN sys.schemas sc ON o.schema_id = sc.schema_id
INNER JOIN sys.index_columns ic ON i.object_id = ic.object_id AND i.index_id = ic.index_id
INNER JOIN sys.columns c ON ic.object_id = c.object_id AND ic.column_id = c.column_id
WHERE ic.is_included_column = 1 AND o.type = 'U'
ORDER BY Table_Name

We can see that for example index IX_ProductId_TransactionDate in dbo.bigTransactionHistory has two included columns: Quantity and ActualCost:
