It will also allow you to find the column name belongs to which tables, TV functions and Views.
Not picking up any table objects for some reason. Does check procs, views, triggers and functions.

Didn't actually get your question, could you please elaborate?

Usually what I do is create a short cut to call this SP. After that just highlight the string you want to search and hit the short cut key.

One of the greatest advantage of this approach is that we can find out dependencies for objects where dynamic queries are involved. Just provide the search string and it will be searched across all programmable objects across your database.

Also, if you run this SP in master database you can use it across any database in your server.

Sorry for adding this line It will also allow you to find the column name belongs to which tables, TV functions and Views.

I removed this part of code because there were performance issues. Will add it to the SP once I optimize it. Thanks for pointing out the mistake, feedback is always welcome.
