going to have to try this to see how it works

edit: does this work with DTS packages? we have a lot of jobs that are DTS or SSIS packages and not just running stored procedures

sysdepends is going to be deprecated in future releases.

While it runs perfectly on older editions, do not get addicted to it

Try sys.dm_sql_referenced_entities or sys.dm_sql_referencing_entities instead. Otherwise it's a nice idea.

Oh wait, I just re-read and saw you were doing this for 2000. Didn't know anyone was still using 2000... ;-)

The problem is not just the sysdepends is deprecated, it is not accurate.
Example:
create a table
create a procedure that selects from the table
drop the table (which deletes records in sysdepends)
create a table with the same name

The procedure still runs, still depends on the table, but no record in sysdepends

Even if they fixed that problem in 2005/2008 you still won't have tables referenced in dynamic SQL, etc..

It is not that hard to write some code to search syscomments (or sys.sql_modules)
(like the code in the article searching the job command field)

Of course it helps if your naming convention is such that it reduces false positives.
