How Do I List All the Views in an SQL Database?

Recently while working with a client they asked, how does one list all the views within an SQL database that contains a specific field name?

To find all SQL views with a specific column name:

SELECT

   TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, DATA_TYPE

FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS

WHERE TABLE_NAME in

   (SELECT name

    FROM sysobjects

    WHERE xtype = 'V')

and COLUMN_NAME like '%enter the required field name here%'

ORDER BY TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME
