  • You can try to use vCollectionDependenciesFlat.

    In this view, SourceCollectionID should be your B collectionID and DependentCollectionIDs are the result you're searching. This also include 'limiting'.

    select dependentCollectionID from vCollectionDependenciesFlat where SourceCollectionID = '<B collID>'

  • no this will give the information about Source of my B Collection.

    For example, my B Collection Limited to A collection that A collection called as Source Collection. 

    So my look here is, B collection have D and E collections included, how to get that information that, my B Collection have two includes 1. D and 2. E Collections.

  • Starting point:  https://mnscug.org/blogs/sherry-kissinger/304-configmgr-2012-sql-report-with-collection-information-about-include-or-exclude-other-collections  not sure if it's exactly what you wanted, but you can use it as a start.
