Alex Torin: "Several months ago I downloaded the trial versions of several Microsoft SQL administration tools that I was able to find using google. I had considerable trouble with most of them crashing... but using your product I was able to isolate and solve the problems I was having. I decided to add it to my toolkit and have recommended it to a few others".

Editing properties

The Body contains the definition of the procedure. The Parameters tab contains the list of the current procedure parameters with its options. Here you can view the Name and the Type of each parameter of the procedure and supply a Comment for the parameter. Use grid's popup menu to add, edit parameters in Parameter Editor. It also allows you to drop and rename  procedure parameters.

Parameters can be edited within the Parameter Editor dialog window. In order to open the dialog you should


open the object in its editor and the Parameters tab there;
select the parameter to edit;
press the Enter key or select the Edit Parameter item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).



Defines the procedure name.

Note: the name of the object must be unique among all the object names in its container. Moreover, all the objects that are source of data need unique names among themselves. You can use any identifier that is allowed by Microsoft SQL server.


There is the owner for the procedure. By default, only the owner of an object can perform various operations with the object. In order to allow other users to operate it, privileges must be granted. (However, users that have the superuser attribute can always access any object.)



This field contains a comment to the procedure.


Create Date

Indicates the date when the procedure was created.


Modify Date

Indicates the date when the procedure was last modified.


Check the Encrypted option to indicate that SQL Server will convert the original text of the CREATE PROCEDURE statement to an obfuscated format. The output of the obfuscation is not directly visible.


Execute As

Specifies the security context under which to execute the stored procedure (For details see Execute As Clause (Microsoft SQL 2005 References)).


Check the For Replication to indicate that the procedure is executed only during replication.



Here you can find the list of the procedure parameters.


With Recompile

Indicates that the Database Engine does not cache a plan for this procedure and the procedure is compiled at run time.



Is an optional integer that is used to group procedures of the same name.


To apply the changes, select the Apply Changes item in the Navigation bar or use Ctrl+F9 or Ctrl+F7 shortcut keys.


It is also possible to modify object properties without opening the object editor: use the Object Properties item of the popup menu of the selected object from the explorer tree.
