Create a way to locate all instances of a query being used

When we try to delete a query from the database, sometimes we see the error: Ad-hoc query could not be deleted. This ad-hoc query or a selection created from this ad-hoc query may be in use. There's no easy way to find where the query is being used so that it can be removed from those locations, and deleted. It would be helpful to have a way to search and locate all references to a query so that it can be deleted.

    Love this idea - would greatly facilitate clean-up and organization of query files!

    If this isn't already available, this would be great!

    At the very least, this error message should be changed to tell us which other query (or other object) is using the query.  This information must be available as it is being checked.  It would be better to have a complete list, as otherwise we could be removing other references one by one for a long time, but at least the name of one other object would be a very good start.

    This is really needed! Especially if you change major business processes and need to locate all queries using a certain field or selection.
