Searching for a View on a Database in SQL Server

Hello everyone,

In this article, I will try to give information about searching for View on the database in SQL Server.

In SQL Server, in some cases, you may want to call View on the database.

You can easily do this using the code below.

DECLARE @Views TABLE (ViewName NVARCHAR(4000))
DECLARE @ViewName NVARCHAR(4000) = 'Category'
DECLARE @Query NVARCHAR(4000)
    = 'SELECT ''?'' + ''.'' + s.name COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS + ''.'' + v.name from [?].sys.views v inner join sys.schemas s on v.schema_id=s.schema_id WHERE v.name LIKE ''%'
      + @ViewName + '%'''

INSERT INTO @Views
(
    ViewName
)
EXEC sp_msforeachdb @Query

SELECT *
FROM @Views

When you run the above code, you will see a result similar to the one below.
