Is it possible to do the following?

I'd like to search a database for tables that contain a column named "TRANS_SEQ_NBR" containing the value "6103052".

I know to get the table names I just do the following, but I have no idea I would incorporate a search for a specific value within the resulting tables.  Perhaps a PL/SQL block/loop?

SELECT table_name FROM all_tab_columns WHERE column_name = 'TRANS_SEQ_NBR';
