Hi,
As an example, the following will list all procedure/function/package that references the SYS.DUAL table:

select owner,name,type from dba_dependencies 
where referenced_owner='SYS' and referenced_name='DUAL' 
and type like 'PACKAGE%' or type in ('PROCEDURE','FUNCTION');

Open in new window


Regards,
Franck.

dba_dependencies will work as long as the procedures do not use dynamic sql with an execute immediate.

If that is a possibility you need to look for the table name in the dba_source view with an INSTR of REGEXP_INSTR call.

If dynamic SQL is a possibility, even a search of DBA_SOURCE isn't foolproof.  The name of the object could be a parameter passed from an external program and wouldn't be in the source code.
