Search any object across db's ..made simple

By ravi lobo,

I just saw a script on this site for object search across the db's. I have written an alternate version with sp_msforeachdb undocumented sp which is much simpler.
This avoids a lot of code and dynamic sql.

Replace "object_name" with the name of the object which needs to be searched across the databases.
