Does sp_recompile recompiles referenced objects?

  • For example we have a stored procedure SP1 and it selects from a table-valued function TVF1.

    If I run sp_recompile SP1, does it set TVF1 to be recompiled on next execution as well? Or should I specifically run sp_recompile TVF1 too?


  • no, it does *not* mark downstream objects to be recompiled too!

    Yes, recompile the table / view rather than individual proc(s).

    If you recompile a proc, only that specific proc gets recompiled.  If you recompile a table or view, all objects that use that table/view will be recompiled.
