One of the SFDC Admins asked if there is a way I can find out if certain fields are used in any reports/code. I have the code portion covered but I can't figure out how to find if the fields are used in any reports. Is there a way to do this?


The best way is to use Eclipse. Download your entire code base and use Eclipse's search function to search all Classes, triggers, and such. Reports and analytic snapshots are accessible this way as well. If your org is small, you should be able to download everything, including objects and custom fields (as any given field can be used in another formula field). If your org is large, you may have to chunk it out into different projects.

  • I am using Eclipse & I believe I have downloaded the reports. I can see all of the report titles in Eclipse. I can't seem to search on the fields that are being used in the reports. What am I missing? – Michele Kleinhomer Aug 25 '18 at 1:38
