I am using the below query pretty often nowadays, as i was digging my way,analyzing something in a legacy application.
You can replace the COLUMN_NAME in between the %% with the value that you want to search for.
SELECT T.NAME AS TABLE_NAME,C.NAME AS COLUMN_NAME
FROM SYS.TABLES AS T INNER JOIN SYS.COLUMNS C
ON T.OBJECT_ID = C.OBJECT_ID WHERE C.NAME LIKE ‘%COLUMN_NAME%’
I wanted to extend it to various databases as well and I found a cool little sp called sp_MSForEachDB .But couldnt get it to work 😦 with my above query.
