Is there a way to find out which reports refer to a specific stored procedure, other than checking all reports individually?

This is to avoid the situation where a stored procedure is updated correctly for one report, but not realizing that the update breaks other reports that refer to the same stored procedure

Hi

If you want to automate it I suggest to look for some code (eg VBA/VBscript) to loop throught XML files in your solution folder and find the tags which store SP name.
