Find Out Which Database Contain A Table

Sometimes it is very important to query the database meta-data in order to be fast and efficient. SQL code to query the System Database metadata to find out which database has a table you are looking for is simply below:


SQL code

Select * from sys.databases
WHERE  CASE
  WHEN state_desc = 'ONLINE' 
  THEN OBJECT_ID(QUOTENAME(name) + '.[dbo].[PutTheNameOfTable]', 'U')
   END IS NOT NULL
