Table of Contents:

    The query below finds tables with a specific name in all the schemas in a database. In this case, it searches for the 'product' table.


    select schema_name(t.schema_id) as schema_name,
  as table_name
    from sys.tables as t
    where = 'product'
    order by schema_name,


    • schema_name - name of the schema where the table was found
    • table_name - name of the table (redundant as it should be exactly the same as provided)


    • One row: represents a table
    • Scope of rows: all found tables
    • Ordered by: schema name


    1. There might be more tables than one because the different schemas in a database may have tables with the same names
