This article describes How to find a Text in Stored Procedure (Checked on SQL Server 2008)
Need to delete or rename a Column Name in Table? 100's of Stored Procedures? Running short on time? Constraints may save you by generating an warning but Stored Procedure Won't!!!
Here is an awesome Trick that may save your time!!!
This applies to non encrypted stored procedues only.
- Open SQL Server Management Studio
- Make sure that you have permission to access the database objects
- Select the Database which has Stored Procedure in which you need to find Text
- Click on New Query
- Below query searches for Text Product and Order [You can use AND or OR and more]
Using the code
Collapse | Copy Code
SELECT Name as [Stored Procedure Name]
WHERE OBJECT_DEFINITION(OBJECT_ID) LIKE '%Product%'
AND OBJECT_DEFINITION(OBJECT_ID) LIKE '%Code%'
I am working on Find and Replace version of above example once done will post here. Enjoy
