Search All SQL Script Objects in All Databases for Text

By Joshua A. Walker,

This is my most frequenly used piece of utility code. Type any text string in place of my name 'Joshua A Walker' (Would find code I edited) and it will find that text in any stored procedure, view or function in your server on all databases except Master, MSDB, TEMPDB and MODEL. If you must search those as well you can remove them from the WHERE statement.

This has been very useful when trying to find where a column is referenced in all objects of all Databases.
