Is it possible to find all Tasks/Policies that have a specified user assigned to them?

Question A specific account used in Software Delivery tasks, Installation Policies (like installing the Altiris Agent), or Inventory tasks has been changed and all tasks that use the account need to be modified. Is there a way to find all of these tasks for the specific user?
This could be that the account has been deleted, the password was changed, the account name was changed, the account needs to be changed to another account and has not been altered in any way. There may be additional reasons that a Program using the 'Run with rights:' option 'Specified user' may need to be changed and have an easy way to locate all of them easily.
Answer The attached report shows a count of users that have been used as a 'Specified user' in a program for a Task. Drilling down in the report will show all tasks applied to the selected user. Each can then be opened by double clicking on them, making it easy to modify each Program assigned to a task.
Note: There may be several programs assigned to a single task, make sure to look at the Program drop down list and modify any that need to be modified.
