    The following query will bring back a unique list of tables where Column_Name is equal to the column you are looking for:

    SELECT Table_Name
    WHERE Column_Name = 'Desired_Column_Name'
    GROUP BY Table_Name

    SELECT Table_Name
    FROM Information_Schema.Columns
    WHERE Column_Name = 'YourFieldName'

    I'm old-school:

    SELECT DISTINCT object_name(id)
    FROM syscolumns
    WHERE name = 'FIELDNAME'
