Finding common joins

At the risk of asking a stupid question -
Is anyone familiar with either a query against the systables or maybe
an outside tool that will provide a list of the most common joins that
have been made in user created views? I'm not talking about table
relationships that are established at the database level, but rather,
I'm referring to the ability to find which joins have been utilized in
poorly constructed databases where no relationships were established
in the first place.
Thanks in advance -
Cindy T.

Do you mean listing all poor running queries? You could list all in Profiler

I am not sure that this would even be possible with an AI tool. You
would have to find VIEWs that restore split attributes, are used to
fix denormalized tables, etc.
