Dependencies on a specific table column

By lhughes92,

SQL Server provides a built-in stored procedure, sp_depends, that returns object dependencies.  Recently, I discovered a need for determining dependencies on a table column, not just the table itself.  For example, a table may be referenced by many stored procedures and views, but a specific column in that table may only be referenced in a few of those objects.  The following code will determine which views and stored procedures reference a specific column in a table, and whether the object is a view (V) or stored procedure (P).
