Hi,

I have the database contains a lots of tables. I want to find out the specific value but don't know from what table/field contains that value. Is there the way to find out?

Thanks

See if this article will help you. http://beyondrelational.com/modules/2/blogs/78/posts/11138/how-to-search-a-string-value-in-all-columns-in-the-table-and-in-all-tables-in-the-database.aspx

Also, I think RedGate has a (free) product that will let you search in tables (but I might be wrong about it being free).
