I need to query all fields of all tables in a SQL database for the string "<script".

Is this possible without specifying each field name, and also without specifying the table name?

I need to do this either from sql server management studio or with a script in VB-6.

Sure, right click in your query window in management studio and select "Results To", then select "Results to File"...from there you can run the query and output the results to whatever file you want.
