Is there a way to determine the plan handle for the query plan of an executing query by that query's text?

Perhaps in any of the DMVs?

(I'm trying to find the query stats on an ad-hoc query.)

    Try to get QueryHash from an estimated plan and then use the query hash to find the query in sys.dm_exec_query_stats – Denis Rubashkin Nov 14 '19 at 7:10

Derived from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7359702/how-do-i-obtain-a-query-execution-plan


SELECT UseCounts, Cacheobjtype, Objtype, TEXT, query_plan
FROM sys.dm_exec_cached_plans 
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(plan_handle)
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan(plan_handle)
WHERE Text LIKE CONCAT('%' ,@SearchForSql,'%')
    AND Text NOT LIKE '%-- Self Reference Marker --%'

Note: The "NOT LIKE" is there to ensure that you don't find the statement you are running, which is inherently self referencing.
