Finding an object in server in SQL Server using SP_MSFOREACHDB

 Today one of my friend asked me that she has created a stored procedure in a database, suddenly she has recognized she has forgotten the database in which the procedure was created. We suggested him to use the below query which searches each and every database in the server and returns the database name and the object name that is specified in where clause.

SP_MSFOREACHDB searches the objects in all databases in the server.

Example:

SP_MSFOREACHDB
'
USE ?
select
    ''?'' Database_Name
   , Name Object_name
from sys.procedures
WHERE name LIKE ''USP_Test''

Using SQL Server script to get list of users and their database roles in SQL Server

use Database_Name;

go 

SELECT  dPrinc.name AS [Members],dRole.name AS [Database Role Name]

FROM sys.database_role_members AS dRo  

JOIN sys.database_principals AS dPrinc  

    ON dRo.member_principal_id = dPrinc.principal_id  

JOIN sys.database_principals AS dRole  

    ON dRo.role_principal_id = dRole.principal_id;
