How can I find any pages that were created from a template?

I'm trying to find out which pages have been created from templates, preferrably without having to resort to coding to do so.

Any ideas?
Cheers.

As far as I know, you can't. The contents of templates are added to the page's source after the page is first saved, so there's really nothing that indicates it was originally built from a template other than the content itself.

If there's something unique about your template (say, the presence of a particular div's class or maybe a macro that you don't use anywhere else), then you could search the database for the presence of that value. If this is a possibility, then you'll want to search the BODYCONTENT table's BODY field for that value.

Otherwise, I can't think of how to do what you're asking.

Matthew, yes, that's what I thought. :) Thanks.
