Hi..
I have a DB with hundreds of SPs, Jobs, DTS packages etc.
How can I find the SP or Jobs or DTS that contain a 'keyword'?

I'm trying to find a '25K'  in the text of SP, Job, DTS package .

How can I search a database and locate an object , job etc that contains the words?

--Run a statement like in the DB you know the object is:


select * from syscomments where text like '%TextToSearchHere%'


if you need to run at server level you can use a undocumented MSFOREACHDB stored proc and run the same code as above.

For DTS - if you have them saved as files, you can search within the file.
