Have you ever kept altering the same query to look for different items in you database?
I took a hint from MS with all the sp_help and other system stored procedures and made
a two scripts this one to query for databases scheduled tasks or jobs as they are now called.

Here is the script and make sure you don't grant access to public. this was a quick solution
and there are tons of ways to probably improve it. I just need some thing to get me started to
in my search to help Identify certain dependent objects or attributes within jobs.
It does not go into DTS packages and search for code, but a good starting place.
