All these information is stored in dbo.CMS_Document

select DocumentPageDescription , DocumentPageTitle, DocumentUrlPath 
from CMS_Document where DocumentID = 123

Normally I use this view, it contains tree information and common document information

select DocumentPageDescription , DocumentPageTitle, DocumentUrlPath
from View_CMS_Tree_Joined where DocumentID = 123

Thanks @Peter M, I have tried this by using below query but I didn't find the same results that I found in my CMS admin panel. How I get the exact results? Select * from View_CMS_Tree_Joined where NodeSiteID = 1

John, if you have several languages defined on your site - you will get several documents, 1 document per language. For 1 node in the tree you can have a few documents, one per language.

You may have several sites hosted in the same DB Select * from View_CMS_Tree_Joined where NodeSiteID = 1 - means give me all the documents that belong to the site with id =1,

P.S. Ah yes, Page Id in the admin interface and documentId in the DB is the same thing :) Select * from View_CMS_Tree_Joined where DocumentId =81

Image Text

Document ID (Page ID) - is unique, so if use this Page id(DocumentID) from the proeprties screen - you will get the exact document:

Select DocumentPageDescription , DocumentPageTitle, DocumentUrlPath  
from View_CMS_Tree_Joined where DocumentId =81

If you are using versioning and/or workflow, this query will not work because the data which would be stored in the cms_document or your custom page type table may be different than the data which is published. So be very careful going directly to the tables for actual content. You're better off using the API to do so.
