Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could use a query like this:

SELECT name as table_name
FROM sys.all_objects
WHERE type = 'U'
AND object_id = (
SELECT parent_object_id
FROM sys.all_objects
WHERE type = 'TR'
and name = 'YourTriggerName');

———

SELECT object_name(parent_id), name
FROM sys.triggers
WHERE name = 'YourTriggerName'
