Find SQL View in All Microsoft Dynamics GP Databases

Microsoft Dynamics GPI recently needed to find which databases in SQL Server had a specific view deployed to them. I’ve created scripts in the past to find SQL objects in all databases (table,trigger and functions), but not one for SQL views.

Some of the previous scripts looked in all databases and others were limited to only the Microsoft Dynamics GP databases; this script is one of the latter, using the SY015000 table to only search for a SQL view in the Dynamics GP databases:

DECLARE @command NVARCHAR(MAX) DECLARE @SystemDatabase VARCHAR(15) = 'D20' DECLARE @View VARCHAR(50) = 'uv_AZRCRV' CREATE TABLE #ReturnedData( DBNAME VARCHAR(15) ,VIEWNAME VARCHAR(100) ) SELECT @command = 'IF EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM sys.databases AS dbs LEFT JOIN ' + @SystemDatabase + '..SY01500 SY ON SY.INTERID = WHERE = ''?'' AND ( = ''' + @SystemDatabase + ''' OR SY.INTERID IS NOT NULL)) BEGIN USE [?]; INSERT INTO #ReturnedData (dbname, VIEWNAME) (SELECT DB_NAME() AS ''DB_NAME'', FROM sys.objects AS o WHERE o.type = ''V'' AND LIKE ''' + @View + '%'') END' EXEC sp_MSforeachdb @command SELECT * FROM #ReturnedData DROP TABLE #ReturnedData
