Sometimes we want or need to know which database objects are sourced from a specific other database object like a table. In a perfect environment we would simply ask our perfect meta data management tool which knows everything about data lineage. Unfortunately we are sometimes exposed to a non optimal environment where the meta data management is incomplete or does not exist.

I just want to show some possibilities to get at least some info out of the DB system - if you have the appropriate right to run the queries.
