Two handy queries which can help you find things in your database


--Search for a specific string in object-definitions:
SELECT DISTINCT
o.name AS Object_Name
,o.type_desc
FROM sys.sql_modules m
INNER JOIN sys.objects o ON m.object_id = o.object_id
WHERE m.definition Like '%SELECT%'

--Find a column within the database:
SELECT
t.name AS TableName,
SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS SchemaName,
c.name AS ColumnName
FROM sys.tables AS t
INNER JOIN sys.columns c ON t.OBJECT_ID = c.OBJECT_ID
WHERE c.name LIKE '%Customer%'
ORDER BY SchemaName, ColumnName
