Finding a SQL Server Object

To find a SQL Server object, such as a user table, query the sysobjects system table in the local database.

If the database name is unknown, use the following query:


Exec sp_MSforeachdb 
'Select * From ?..sysobjects where name like 'objectname'''
The ? in the query is replaced with the database names, internally—or for example, you could do this for a table license:

Exec sp_MSforeachdb 
'if exists(select * from ?..sysobjects where name = 
''license'') select * from ?..sysobjects where name = ''license'' '
This will return all the information in that table.
