Find A String In Database

July 1st, 2017, posted in Oracle

I’ve tried using this statement below to find an appropriate column based on what I think it should be named but it returned no results :

SELECT * from dba_objects WHERE
object_name like '%DTN%'

A column isn't an object. If you mean that you expect the column name to be like '%DTN%', the query you want is:

SELECT owner, table_name, column_name FROM all_tab_columns WHERE column_name LIKE '%DTN%';
