    Hello everyone,
    In 2005, has anyone found a good way of finding the names of Tables that full scans are occurring on? And maybe even the SQL code that is running when the table scan occurs?

    Thanks, John

    You can try with scan events in Profiler. Check BOL for details.

    As Luis referred PROFILER can get information, but running that in PROD environment may prove costly if you have performance issues.
    So you can take help of SYSMON (PERFMON) tool get performance counter under the "SQL Server:Access Methods" category called "Full Scans/sec" for more information.

    Check the user_scans column in sys.dm_db_index_usage_stats
