Could you post DDL for both tables? Some comments on what the columns are could be useful.

Additionaly, you could use the system views to find any Primary keys or Foreign keys on both tables.

SELECT *
FROM sys.objects
WHERE type IN ('F', 'PK')
AND parent_object_id IN( OBJECT_ID( 'Saldos_Emp', 'U'), OBJECT_ID( 'AnotherTable', 'U'))

This will be pretty hard to answer definitively without having a lot more information about all the tables and fields in the database.

Totally grasping at straws, I'm wondering if the table that has the company names also has a CompanyId field and if so then maybe the CompanyId field is related the RevenueId field in the other table.

One possible way to see relationships is to add the table with the company names to a new database diagram in SSMS and then right-click in the new diagram window and pick "Add Table..." to add the table with the company names to the diagram. Once the table comes up in the new diagram window you can right-click the table and pick "Add Related Tables". That option will be greyed-out (disabled) if the table has no related tables. If the option is enabled and you click it, all the related tables will be added to the diagram. You can then check the properties of each relationship to see what columns in the other tables are related to what columns in the table with the company names.

I tried this option. Apparently the table with CompanyID does not have any related table.
However , the table with revenue id , does bring up lot of related ones....

Well since we can't see your screen we can't really do much to offer as help here. There must be something somewhere that ties these tables together. Maybe you have to go through another table or two to get there?

Sometimes the developer who setup the original design was "nice" enough to put fields that are related in tables but without actually creating foreign keys. So it's possible that CompanyID is related to revenue id without a foreign key existing. Or CompanyID may be related (without a foreign key) to a field in one of the other tables that is connected to revenue id.

If you find that to be the case, you may want to consider putting the foreign key(s) in place to make your life and the next guys easier going forward. ;-)

Do you have any database documentation?

This is a difficult one to answer without access to your database or a lot more info. on it.
Maybe a database/entity relationship diagram.
Tables can be "related" without "hard coded" Foreign Key Relationships in place at which point it pretty much comes down to a bit of investigation on your part to detect the relationships.
