I'm trying to extract the code of standard procedures, table-valued functions and the like in a 2005 SQL DB. Apart from copying-pasting the code into a TXT file, is there a simpler and quicker way to do that, for instance to check that at home?

I'd be happy with a method either: 1) For the whole database 2) For a type or set of procedures.

Thanks in advance

"right click" Database -> Tasks -> Generate Scripts

Assuming you're on a current service pack, you can choose to export into 1 big file, or into individual files per object.

You also get a screen where you can choose to include indexes, contraints etc...

For Objects of type P, RF, V, TR, FN, IF, TF, and R try this:

SELECT * FROM sys.sql_modules

Which gives you all you want to know. You will most likely want to examine the columns available in sql_modules and limit the amount of information returned.

And save the output to a file for later examination. I have found it useful to save it finally as a word doc and then I can use the search features of word to find in a table/column or whatever is returned in more than one SP ...

Good luck.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
