Is there anyway to query all your Stored Proc's, Views, and functions? I need to check to see what code is using a table.

INNER JOIN sys.objects o
ON d.object_id = o.object_id
INNER JOIN sys.objects p

Once you install it you will ask yourself how you ever managed to find anything without it. I use it daily.

sql_dependencies is not reliable source for determining if some table is used in views or programming objects...

But it is getting better with each release. Not sure how good it as this time, but I know it didn't catch forward dependencies in some of the earlier versions of SQL Server (like SQL Server 2000 iirc).

Cool

I do not have permissions on the server.. and there is a lot of red tape to get anything installed.

However I did use the SQL provided... with a few changes... thanks for everyones help.

; with base as
(
SELECT DISTINCT o.name as Calling_Name
, o.type_desc as Calling_desc
, p.name as Called_Name
, p.type_desc as Called_Desc
FROM sys.sql_dependencies d
INNER JOIN sys.objects o
ON d.object_id = o.object_id
INNER JOIN sys.objects p
ON d.referenced_major_id = p.object_id
)
select * from base
where [called_name] like 'zt_MSC%'
order by called_name, Calling_name

You don't need to install RedGate search on a server. It's SSMS add-in and you should install it on on your desktop/vm. It's one of the most used SQL development tools, provided for free by one of the most known software companies specializing in this area.
As I said before sys.sql_dependencies may not contain data for all dependent objects.
If you go this way, you better to check syscomments too.

I also search table sys.sql_modules, which contains the code for all sys.objects members of type P, RF, V, TR, FN, IF, TF, and R.

If you want to check for use in a job step, also check table sysjobsteps (msdb.dbo.sysjobsteps), column "command".
