           --ReferencingObject = SCHEMA_NAME(o1.schema_id)+'.'+o1.name,
     ReferencingObjectType = o1.type

 FROM   sys.sql_expression_dependencies ed
     INNER JOIN  sys.objects o1
    ON ed.referencing_id = o1.object_id
     INNER JOIN sys.objects o2
    ON ed.referenced_id = o2.object_id
 --WHERE o1.type in ('P','TR','V', 'TF')  WHERE o1.type in ('P','V')
