Procedures

A stored procedure is a saved collection of Transact-SQL statements or a reference to a Microsoft .NET Framework common language runtime (CLR) method that can take and return user-supplied parameters. Procedures can be created for permanent use or for temporary use within a session, local temporary procedure, or for temporary use within all sessions, global temporary procedure.

 

 

New procedures are created within Create Procedure Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should either

 

select the Object | Create Database Object... main menu item;
select the Procedure icon in the Create Database Object dialog

or

select the Procedures list or any object from that list in the explorer tree;
select the Create New Procedure... item from the popup menu

or

open Schema Editor and the Procedures tab there;
press the Insert key or select the Create New Procedure item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

       

To create a new procedure with the same properties as one of the existing procedures has:

 

select the Object | Duplicate Database Object... main menu item;

select the procedure to edit;
press the Enter key or select the Edit Procedure item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

       

You can change the name of the procedure using the Rename Procedure dialog. To open the dialog you should either

 

select the procedure to rename in the explorer tree;
select the Rename Procedure item from the popup menu

or

select the Rename Procedure item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

 

 

 

To execute a procedure:

 

select the procedure in the explorer tree (type the first letters of the procedure name for quick search);
select the Edit Procedure... item from the popup menu;
execute the procedure using the Execute link of the Navigation Bar

or

open Schema Editor and the Procedures tab there;

select the procedure to execute;
press the Enter key or select the Edit Procedure item from the popup menu, or use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar;
execute the procedure using the Execute link of the Navigation bar.

 

 

 

To drop a procedure:

or
