Find And Replace Stored Procedure Code

Jana Sattainathan has to find and replace a lot of code:

The database has 100’s of stored procedures (700+ to be somewhat precise)

Qualifying stored procedures have these characteristics

  • Procedure name ends with “_del”
  • Procedure has the string “exec” in the code
  • Procedure has the string “sp_execute” in the code

This is what needs to be done:

  • Replace CREATE PROC with ALTER PROC

  • Replace SYSTEM_USER with “ORIGINAL_LOGIN()”

  • Replace AS at the beginning of CREATE PROC with “WITH EXECUTE AS OWNER AS”

  • Comment out some SET statements

  • …in fact, there could be any number of other changes

Read on to see how Jana did it.
