This is really a nice piece of information. I was just surfing the net and got this. It really made my life easy though I have to add some code to match my use case.
I too got the result after commenting the depnumber=1

I realise this is old, but I found it useful today.

I modified the code: -

;WITH stored_procedures AS (
SELECT
o.name AS proc_name, oo.name AS table_name,
ROW_NUMBER() OVER(partition by o.name,oo.name ORDER BY o.name,oo.name) AS row
FROM sysdepends d
INNER JOIN sysobjects o ON o.id=d.id
INNER JOIN sysobjects oo ON oo.id=d.depid
WHERE o.xtype = 'P')
SELECT proc_name, table_name FROM stored_procedures
WHERE row = 1
ORDER BY proc_name,table_name



This gets rid of the issue that some were having with duplicated table names.

Also - please bear in mind that "o.xtype = 'P'" means I am only returning stored-procedures, nothing else.

If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
Try reading a few of these links...

(*) Missing rows with nolock
(*) Allocation order scans with nolock
(*) Consistency issues with nolock
(*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
(*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock

This answer uses a number of deprecated tables that will no longer be supported.

Here's a simpler way to achieve the same thing:

SELECT DISTINCT p.name AS proc_name, t.name AS table_name
FROM sys.sql_dependencies d
INNER JOIN sys.procedures p ON p.object_id = d.object_id
INNER JOIN sys.tables t ON t.object_id = d.referenced_major_id
ORDER BY proc_name,table_name



For more info, you can see my answer on stack overflow about this issue.

Update: Edited Ordinal Order By per Sean's suggestion

Resurrected a pretty old thread here. ;-) I like your solution but you really should not use ordinal position in your ORDER BY.

Hey Jerry Hung,
I have tried the function to get list of table names used in a stored procedure and it works great.. Now I want to get row count for each table used in the stored procedure. How can I do this?
