Looking for an Object in a SQL Database

Last Modified: 2015-08-14

I'm trying to look for an object in a SQL database.  I cannot tell if the object is a table, view, or stored procedure.

Is there a "select" script or something along those lines that I can run, to look for this object?

I'd rather not run anything that's going to create another object in SQL, unless doing so is easy and will not do any harm.
