Locate a specific query string across multiple reports

This a long-shot!  I have a couple of hundred Power BI files, most of which are pulling data from a single PostgreSQL database.  Is there any cunning way (a script, I guess) to determine which pbix files pull a specific column name from this database.  For example, my currency table in the SQL database has a column labelled  'iso' and I'd like to be able to establish which pbix reports in a certain folder are querying 'currency.iso' (or the likely alias).


Any ideas gratefully received!
