[thelist] Database Schema from ASP

Does anyone know if it's possible to get the Primary Keys Schema of a
SQL Server database with ASP?

I've used myConnection.OpenSchema(someSchema) to get table and column
schema data but neither have the PK info... I tried OpenSchema(28),
which ought to get the Primary Keys schema, and all the right fields are
there (TABLE_NAME, PK_NAME etc) but it's a recordset of 0 records. I do
definitely have my primary keys defined! Ideally I'd like to retrieve
the Foreign Key schema (27) as well but that doesn't seem to work either
despite having my relationships nicely diagrammed.

Does ADO not support these schemas and if not, is there any other way to
get them?

Here's my code:
var oConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection");
var oTable = Server.CreateObject("ADOX.Catalog");

oTable = oConn.OpenSchema(28);

var s = "";
s += oTable.RecordCount+"<br />";
var eCols = new Enumerator(oTable.Fields);
while (!eCols.atEnd()) {
    s += eCols.item().Name + "<br />";

Help would REALLY be appreciated!!!
