Find SQL Trigger In All Databases

Microsoft SQL ServerIn the last post, I posted a SQL script which could be used to find a column in the database. This post has a SQL script which can be used to locate triggers in all databases.

Change the highlighted section to the name of the trigger you’re looking for and run the script.

This is not something I am going to do manually, so I wrote a script which would find all tables containing the specified column (change the highlighted section):

DECLARE @command nvarchar(max)
DECLARE @Trigger VARCHAR(50) = 'utr_'

SELECT @command = 'IF EXISTS ( SELECT 1 FROM sys.databases WHERE name = ''?'')   
						USE [?];
						DECLARE @stmt nvarchar(max) DECLARE @n char(1) SET @n = char(10)
						SELECT DB_NAME() AS ''DB_NAME'',,t.is_disabled FROM sys.triggers AS t 
						INNER JOIN sys.objects AS o ON o.object_id = t.object_id WHERE LIKE ''' + @Trigger + '%''

EXEC sp_MSforeachdb @command

What should we write about next?
