Fetching all Table Names in Windows Azure

Here you will see how to fetch all table names in Windows Azure.

To list all the table names from a Windows Azure storage account, you need to call the  ListTable() function of the CloudTableClient class. To start with, first you need to add the below namespaces.


Then create a storage account as below,


Make sure to put your own connection string to azure storage to parse. Next you need to create instance of table client


Once a tableclient is created you can list all the tables by making call to ListTables() method.


For your reference, the full source code to fetch all the tables name from a Windows Azure Storage account is given below,

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient;
using Microsoft.WindowsAzure;
namespace ConsoleClient
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

            string connectionString = "DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=abc;AccountKey=jsjdsfjgdsfj09===";
            var TablesName = GetTablesNameForAzureSubscription(connectionString);
            foreach (var r in TablesName)


        private static List<string> GetTablesNameForAzureSubscription(string connectionString)
            CloudStorageAccount account =CloudStorageAccount

            CloudTableClient tableClient = new CloudTableClient

            var result = tableClient.ListTables();

            return result.ToList();

On running of above code you should be getting the table name listed for the account mentioned in connection string. In this case I have three tables listed to the account as below,


In this way you can list all the tables name from Windows Azure Storage Account. I hope this post is useful. Thanks for reading.
