Fetching name of all tables in Windows Azure Storage

To list all the table name from Windows Azure storage account, you need to call ListTable() function of CloudTableClient class. To start with first you need to add 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 tableclient is created you can list all the tables by making call to ListTables() method.


For your reference full source code to fetch all the tables name from 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  Smile
