SQL Server – List of Tables Used in Stored Procedure

Posted by Prashant on December 1, 2012

Today while developing a piece of logic in our development, my colleague said that I know there is a procedure which has same kind of logic and that may help us building the logic quickly. But the question was how to find that procedure !!!

Then the idea came up was if we can find the list of procedures that are dependable on Table1 & Table2 ?

…and that inspired me to write this post.

We spend some time researching system tables and here is the findings to find list of tables used in a procedure.

;WITH procs
SELECT o1.name AS proc_name,
o2.name AS table_name,
ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY o1.name,o2.name ORDER BY o1.name,o2.name) AS row
FROM sysdepends d
INNER JOIN sysobjects o1
ON o1.id=d.id
INNER JOIN sysobjects o2
ON o2.id=d.depid
WHERE o1.xtype = 'P'
--AND o2.name = 'tabname1' OR o2.name = 'tblname2'
SELECT proc_name, table_name
FROM procs
WHERE row = 1
ORDER BY proc_name, table_name

Let me know if you have any better idea for this.
