Using Python to print a "database view definition"?!

I am attempting to interrogate an SQL Server Enterprise Geodatabase using Python. I want to obtain information for all features, relationships, tables etc. within said database. (I have only been using python for about a week. So please be detailed.) 


I am having an issue with the TableViews. When using the walk function, with a datatype of "Table", I can print the File Name, but not the WhereClause. (I can see the definition in the View Properties dialog box.) 

I'm not sure how 'off' I am in my procedure and syntax. I have been trying the following statement ||| desc = arcpy.Describe(TableViewName) print "Where Clause: " + desc.whereClause |||  (I pulled this from the TableView properties example on the ArcPy Help on


 Any ideas?! Thanks!
