I was returning to an old database and I wanted to find all instances of a particular column name. The following SQL is a very fast way to output the object name (with additional data) for locating the item of interest. Of course you can make more elaborate by filtering query.
SELECT sc.[name] AS column_name, so.[name] , *
FROM syscolumns sc INNER JOIN sysobjects so ON sc.id=so.id WHERE sc.[name] LIKE '%TestColumnName%'
