SQL Search experience

I started using SQL Search (a free product from RedGate) several weeks ago, while it was still in beta. Now that the product has been released and is freely downloadable, I can say it has being really useful since the first beta. My common need is to look for the use of a column in every table, view, stored procedure and UDF… And this tool save me the time of generating the script and making a text search – not mentioning that I can restrict the scope of a search and there is also an integration with Object Explorer to select an object found in the search.

Considering that the tool is free, it has the better possible ROI!

Those comboboxes where  you choose name of the database/server is not comfortable. I think if they woudl added dynamic width of the combobox it woudl help  to see/choose all databases than 'great' than temdb name..
