In my "Alerts" folder, I have an alert that I created once upon a time called "UserSettable1".

I cannot for the life of me remember why I created this, but I do believe that it was and is useful.  I think it's being used somewhere, by something.

How do I figure out what's using this alert, and how it's being used?

Thanks

I can only suggest scripting the whole database and doing a text search for the alert you are looking for.

right click the database
then "tasks"
then "generate scripts"

This starts up a wizard where you select all the objects to script and where to put the output (file, new quey window,...)
