The database name is "rpr_dev" and the field I want to find is called "zoneword". I'd like to know which table is that field in.
Thanks in advance

Try this:

USE rpr_dev
go

SELECT a.[name] as ColumnName, b.[name] as TableName FROM sys.columns a
INNER JOIN sys.tables b ON a.object_id = b.object_id
WHERE a.[name] = 'zoneword'
