Richard - not sure about your scripting stored procedures question but there're several ways to do it:
1) In EM - use "All tasks" - "Generate Sql Script"....
2) In QA - use the object browser and "Script object to New Window As..."
3) Create a template & use it to modify & create new procedures.
Hope at least one of these methods has addressed your question.
Jeff - thanks for the kind words - find it difficult to believe that I could've helped any "oldbie" but will take your word for it!
Phill - thx. for drawing my attention to the non-mentioned trick -
Mike - Didn't know that EM does this - Think that with the expertise of all the articles you've written you're quick to find "missing links" and I'm grateful for your input.
