Here is a reference:  https://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m02/m02013.htm   // Yudhishthira always said,--Give unto each what is due to each,--and the only sounds that he could hear were,--Blessed be Dharma! Blessed be Dharma! Yudhishthira! conducting himself thus and giving paternal assurance to everybody, there was none in the kingdom who entertained any hostile feelings towards him. He therefore came to be called Ajatasatru (one with no enemy at all).  // 

The URL corresponds to the Adiparvan and here is the BORI Sanskrit text of that parvan:  https://bombay.indology.info/mahabharata/text/UD/MBh02.txt  

This verse is about Yudhishthira:

02012008a एवं गते ततस्तस्मिन्पितरीवाश्वसञ्जनाः
02012008c न तस्य विद्यते द्वेष्टा ततोऽस्याजातशत्रुता

नम॑स्ते महोदय!

अजा॑तशत्रु॒र् इति॑ नव॒त्यां स्थाने॑षु युधिष्ठि॒रस्या॑भि॒धानं॑ श्रूयते म॒हाभा॑रते। इ॒दम् अ॒न्यत॑मम्—
In about ninety places Yudhiṣṭhira has been called Ajātaśatru in the Mahābhārata. Here is one:

य॒दा नाभू॑त् कैत॒वम् अ॒न्यद् अ॒स्य त॒दादे॑वी॒त् पाण्ड॒वोऽजा॑तशत्रुः
न्य॑स्ताः॒ पूर्वं॒ भ्रात॑र॒स्तेन॒ राज्ञा॑ स्व॒यं चा॒त्मा त्वमथो॑ राजपुत्रि॥

(गी॒ता॒प्रे॒स्पु॒स्त॒के म॒हाभा॑रते सभाप॒र्वणि॑ द्यूतप॒र्वणि॑ द्रौपदीप्र॒श्ने स॑प्तषष्टित॒मे॑ऽध्या॒ये ष॒ष्ठः श्लोकः॑)

A correction in my earlier email:

I had mentioned the verse to be in the Adiparvan by mistake; it is the SabhAparvan.

The error is regretted.

regards

Dr. Khangai,

For such queries, please refer to the encyclopedic Mahabharata Kosha:

I believe that there are some more references than the ones listed here.

Best,
