How to find text from all tables of SQL Server (Find Specific Text in All Tables of SQL)

Hello,

Create below store procedure first.




Create PROC SearchInAllTable

(

@searchText nvarchar(max)

)

AS

BEGIN



SET NOCOUNT ON

DECLARE @TableName nvarchar(256), @ColumnName nvarchar(128), @searchString nvarchar(110)

CREATE TABLE #FinalOutput (ColumnName nvarchar(370), ColumnValue nvarchar(3630))

SET  @TableName = ''

SET @searchString = QUOTENAME('%' + @searchText + '%','''')



WHILE @TableName IS NOT NULL

BEGIN

    SET @ColumnName = ''

    SET @TableName = 

    (

        SELECT MIN(QUOTENAME(TABLE_SCHEMA) + '.' + QUOTENAME(TABLE_NAME))

        FROM    INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES

        WHERE       TABLE_TYPE = 'BASE TABLE'

            AND QUOTENAME(TABLE_SCHEMA) + '.' + QUOTENAME(TABLE_NAME) > @TableName

            AND OBJECTPROPERTY(

                    OBJECT_ID(

                        QUOTENAME(TABLE_SCHEMA) + '.' + QUOTENAME(TABLE_NAME)

                         ), 'IsMSShipped'

                           ) = 0

    )



    WHILE (@TableName IS NOT NULL) AND (@ColumnName IS NOT NULL)

    BEGIN

        SET @ColumnName =

        (

            SELECT MIN(QUOTENAME(COLUMN_NAME))

            FROM    INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS

            WHERE       TABLE_SCHEMA    = PARSENAME(@TableName, 2)

                AND TABLE_NAME  = PARSENAME(@TableName, 1)

                AND DATA_TYPE IN ('char', 'varchar', 'nchar', 'nvarchar')

                AND QUOTENAME(COLUMN_NAME) > @ColumnName

        )



        IF @ColumnName IS NOT NULL

        BEGIN

            INSERT INTO #FinalOutput

            EXEC

            (

                'SELECT ''' + @TableName + '.' + @ColumnName + ''', LEFT(' + @ColumnName + ', 3630) 

                FROM ' + @TableName + ' (NOLOCK) ' +

                ' WHERE ' + @ColumnName + ' LIKE ' + @searchString

            )

        END

    END 

END



SELECT * FROM #FinalOutput

END






Now Run this store procedure from SSMS.




exec SearchInAllTable 'text which need to search'




Enjoy!!!
