Getting an index's information

I was asked by one of the client to get all info about the indexes i.e name of the index , column's name, table's name etc. Please take a look at following script to return the data for SQL Server 2000.
use pubs

SELECT tbl = object_name(i.id), i.name as index_name, c.name as column_name,
isunique = indexproperty(i.id, i.name, 'IsUnique'),
isclustered = indexproperty(i.id, i.name, 'IsClustered'),
constrtype = CASE o.type
FROM sysindexes i
JOIN syscolumns c on i.id = c.id
JOIN sysindexkeys k on i.id = k.id
and i.indid = k.indid
and c.colid = k.colid
LEFT JOIN sysobjects o ON o.name = i.name
AND o.xtype in ('PK', 'UQ')
AND o.parent_obj = i.id
WHERE indexproperty(i.id, i.name, 'IsHypothetical') = 0
AND indexproperty(i.id, i.name, 'IsStatistics') = 0
AND indexproperty(i.id, i.name, 'IsAutoStatistics') = 0
AND objectproperty(i.id,'IsMSShipped')=0
ORDER BY tbl, i.name, k.keyno

For SQL Server 2005 I use the script written by Kalen Delaney.Remember there is new type of index called INCLUDE.

CREATE VIEW get_index_columns
SELECT object_name(ic.object_id) as object_name , index_name = i.name,
'column' = c.name,
'column usage' = CASE ic.is_included_column
WHEN 0 then 'KEY'
FROM sys.index_columns ic JOIN sys.columns c
ON ic.object_id = c.object_id
AND ic.column_id = c.column_id
JOIN sys.indexes i
ON i.object_id = ic.object_id
AND i.index_id = ic.index_id

After creating the view, you can select from it, and it will give you the
KEY columns and the INCLUDED columns in all the indexes in all the tables.
Or, you can add a WHERE clause for your own table or index:

SELECT * FROM get_index_columns
WHERE object_name = 'mytable'
