Find stored procedure

When working on large databases there can in some projects be hundreds or even thousands of stored procedures, so if your task is to find all stored procedures that query a specific table then finding it could be quite a headache.
This query below has helped me many times and I hope it will help you too.

SELECT r.ROUTINE_SCHEMA  as "Database",
       r.ROUTINE_NAME  
  FROM information_schema.routines r
 WHERE r.ROUTINE_TYPE  = 'PROCEDURE'
   AND r.ROUTINE_DEFINITION LIKE '%departments%'
 ORDER BY r.ROUTINE_SCHEMA ASC,
       r.ROUTINE_NAME ASC;
