How many tables in the database AdventureWorks have column names like ‘EmployeeID’?
It was quite an interesting question and I thought if there are scripts that can do this would be great. I quickly wrote down the following script which will go return all the tables containing specific columns along with their schema name.
SELECT t.name AS table_name,
SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS schema_name,
c.name AS column_name
FROM sys.tables AS t
INNER JOIN sys.columns c ON t.OBJECT_ID = c.OBJECT_ID
WHERE c.name LIKE '%EmployeeID%'
ORDER BY schema_name, table_name;
