    You need a SP.
    Query DBA_TAB_COLUMNS view to get all the columns that have a char/varchar datatype.
    For each row: SELECT 1 FROM owner_name.table_name WHERE column_name = 'abc' AND ROWNUM = 1
    if found, put the table_name in a temp table and skip to the next table.
    At the end, the temp table will have your list.
