How to: Save Stored Procedures and User-Defined Functions 

Stored procedures and user-defined functions must be saved before you can run them. If you attempt to run an unsaved SQL routine, a message prompts you to save it first. When you save a stored procedure, it is added to the Stored Procedures folder in Server Explorer. When you save a user-defined function, it is added to the Functions folder in Server Explorer.

NoteNote

The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.

To save a stored procedure or user-defined function

  • From the File menu, choose Save <procedure or function name>.

Stored procedures and user-defined functions must have unique names. If the name is already assigned to another database object, a message prompts you to choose another name.
