A Script A Day - Day 23 - Find an Object In Job Steps

Today’s script is one which saves me a lot of time on occasion.  On large systems with lets say more than 100 jobs it is esential to manage them properly and the smallest thing like naming conventions help a lot.  So what if you want to check if an object lets say a stored procedure is executed in a job, you aren’t going to search through all 100+ jobs and potentially 1000’s of job steps are you?  Hell No, you use a script, because we don’t like GUI’s ;)

The script below is simple enough just the one join from sysjobs to sysjobsteps and the only thing you need to do is to update the ObjectHere.  It is easy to see that you could use this script to search for any text in a job step not just an object!
