If you know the table name please try following select in SSMS against that specific dabatase (not master):

select * from sys.syscomments where text like '%PutYourTableNameHere%';

You mean from outside that proc?  No, not unless you store that info somewhere.

If you mean can the proc "identity itself" as it's running, then yes, using @@PROCID.

If your question is 'What SP whose name I don't know creates table x?', then the below code will return all SP's with the value x in it.  If the set is too big, or if you feel lucky, change x to CREATE TABLE x
SELECT OBJECT_NAME(object_id)
FROM sys.sql_modules
WHERE OBJECTPROPERTY(object_id, 'IsProcedure') = 1
   AND definition LIKE '%x%'

That doesn't actually tell you that proc did create that table, just that it potentially could have created it.

Granted.  Didn't have anything else to offer up, as table properties / sys.tables / sys.objects does not speak to it.

Tks. It works fine only when I use a database that contains the store procedure. Can it be further enhancement to search through all database ? Tks


SELECT OBJECT_NAME(object_id)
FROM sys.sql_modules
WHERE OBJECTPROPERTY(object_id, 'IsProcedure') = 1
   AND definition LIKE '%x%'
