How to find all the tables in MySQL with specific column names in them?
I have 2-3 different column names that I want to look up in the entire DB and list out all tables which have those columns. Any easy script?

To get all tables with columns 'columnA' or 'ColumnB' in the database 'YourDatabase'
SELECT DISTINCT TABLE_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS WHERE COLUMN_NAME IN ('columnA','ColumnB') AND TABLE_SCHEMA='YourDatabase';
