SP_HELPTEXT Modified for XML

By trabun,

This is the standard sp_helptext from SQL Server 2000 modified slightly to return the object definition as an XML document.
The document is structured in the following format:





I admit it was not a lot of work since I merely modified the final SELECT statement from Microsoft's own procedure, but I still find this very useful.

The only portions of the script that are different from sp_helptext is, of course, the name and the final select statement.

I hope it is as useful for you as it has been for me.
