report meta data search for a particular field

Hello Everyone,

Here in my organization we are accessing one field in many areas. Now i just want to know where this field is being used, like Visualforce Pages, Apex Classes etc..

I heard that we can achieve this by report metadata search, but how can i get it? plz update me your thoughts.

Thanks!!

Hi Swamy,

Well this can be achieved via Force.com IDE or using ANT migration Tool. You need to get the whole metadata into your local system then you can easily search any field using Eclipse IDE.

Regarding Report Metadata API , it will allow you to get the metadata of reports. But can't give you the reports on the reference of the field directly, you need to do extra work over there. 

Let me know if this helps you.

Thanks,
