    find store procedure

    Hello everyone,

    Any ideas to find where is the physical location of store procedures showed under Programmability --> Store Procedures of Management Studio?

    (sorry for my naive question again) :-)

    1.

    I have a source control system and I want to check-in the store procedure code (I think they should be in the form of .sql) so that all developers could work on them in a synchronous way?

    2.

    And I also want to merge the store procedure code outside Management Studio using other diff tools and let Management Studio reflect the changes -- e.g. if I merge/change the code from outside, when I press refresh button in Management Studio, I can see the new merged code of store procedures.

    thanks in advance,
    George

    Sorry, Krzemo. My experience is limited on this point. Could you let me know the database name from which there is syscomments table please? :-)

    It is in Your database... I don't know its name ...
    ;-)

    Try this:
    Code:
    SELECT c.text 
     FROM sysobjects o
     INNER JOIN syscomments c ON c.id=o.id
     WHERE o.name='YoursProcedureName'
    ORDER BY colid
    OR this:
    Code:
    EXEC sp_helptext 'YoursProcedureName'
    ;-)

    Best regards,
    Krzemo.

    Re: find store procedure

    Thanks Krzemo,

    I have tried both methods.

    1. Any solutions to get all names of all user defined (other than system built-in) store procedure?

    2. The 1st solution does not work (returning result is empty), but the 2nd works. Here is my code for both. Any ideas why the 1st returns empty result?

    Code:
    SELECT c.text 
     FROM sysobjects o
     INNER JOIN syscomments c ON c.id=o.id
     WHERE o.name='[dbo].[prc_AddABC]'
    ORDER BY colid
    
    Exec sp_helptext '[dbo].[prc_AddABC]'

    Re: find store procedure

    should be:
    Code:
     
    SELECT c.text 
    FROM sysobjects o
    INNER JOIN syscomments c ON c.id=o.id
    WHERE o.name='prc_AddABC'
    ORDER BY colid

    Re: find store procedure

    Thanks Krzemo,

    Your new solution below works. But why I can not use [dbo].[prc_AddABC]? It is more formal name than the short name prc_AddABC. :-)

    Re: find store procedure

    because it (user/schema id) is in different column.
    ;-)

    sp_helptext splits up that formal name and do exactly the same select

    Re: find store procedure

    Thanks Krzemo,

    You mean sysobjects.name stores exactly the store procedure name without schema name? And the select statement does exact match? :-)

    If MSSQL Sever is the Database server Then

    SysObejcts is the table you should look for any objects exists in the data base.

    For Example
    Select * from Sysobjects where Xtype='U'
    Returns All the user created table details.

    Xtype filed Summary

    TR ---> Trigger
    U ----> User created Table
    C -----> Check Constraint
    S -----> System Tables
    D -----> Default Value
    PK ---> Primary Key
    FN ----> User Defined Functions
    TF -----> User defined Function returning Table type of Data
    V -----> Views
    P -----> Stored Procedure

    From Sysobjects table you can get id of the objects and from other system tables
    like syscolumns,syscomments... etc you can the entire details of required objects
