Search for A Text/String In Any Stored Procedures using SQL Server

It’s really easy to find table dependencies using SQL Server Management Studio but there is really no “search for procedure text” in SQL Server.  We recently had to search for this kind of ‘dependencies’ since some of the stored procedures that we have had the table’s value hard coded in the stored proc (bad programmer! *electrocuted*).

SELECT obj.Name SPName, sc.TEXT SPText
FROM sys.syscomments sc
INNER JOIN sys.objects obj ON sc.Id = obj.OBJECT_ID
WHERE sc.TEXT LIKE '%' + '''IAmAwesome''' + '%'
