Marking a stored procedure as system object in SQL Server

Once my friend ask to me, It is possible to mark a stored procedure as system object allow to run in user database context?
I said yes we can do. We have to follow two step which is mention below.
Step 1- The stored procedure name must begin with "sp_":
Create a stored procedure in Maser database which name begin with sp_
@tableNM varchar(100)
       FROM        sys.objects
       WHERE      name=@tableNM
              SELECT 'true' [Exist]
              SELECT 'false' [Exist]

Note: A stored procedure created with "sp_" prefix can be used in any user database without specifying database/schema. But, the procedure still run in the context of master database and not the user database. Let’s create a procedure to test this:
Step 2- The stored procedure must be marked as system object explicitly:
You can mark a stored procedure as system object using sys.sp_MS_marksystemobject system procedure.
Below code will mark the procedure as system object:
USE [master]
EXEC sys.sp_MS_marksystemobject sp_NewObject


You can verify if the object is marked as system object:
USE   [master]

SELECT      name, is_ms_shipped
FROM        sys.objects
WHERE       name = 'sp_NewObject'

name                                    is_ms_shipped
sp_NewObject                 1
sp_NewObject is now marked as system object and can be run in user database context:

USE   [Your database name]
EXEC  sp_NewObject 'Tbl_Name'

Query to find stored procedures by nested stored procedure name

Problem: Suppose we have a stored procedure which has been used in several stored procedure, I mean stored procedure usp_proc1 is nested in many stored procedures like below
So I want to find all those queries who containing usp_proc1
Solution: There is a lot of solutions, I'm giving some of them below. If you want to get the only name of the stored procedures then use the following query. Using join query on system tables syscomments and sysobjects we can get the stored procedures name which containing the particular table, nested procs or any other string. FROMsyscommentss

Check for changes to an SQL Server table?

Problem: Suppose your team is working on the under-development project so it might be possible continuous work on the database and perform changes in Table, Stored procedure as per requirement, and daily you have to update the testing server database as per changes are done in developing server database then how it is possible to trace those changes. There are a lot of solutions for this problem which is listed below Solution 1: For SQL Server 2000, 2005 and above use the CHECKSUM command SELECTCHECKSUM_AGG(BINARY_CHECKSUM(*))FROMYour_Table_NameWITH (NOLOCK); That will return the same number each time its run as long as the table contents haven't changed. Unfortunately CHECKSUM does not work always properly to detect changes. It is only a primitive checksum and no CRC calculation. Therefore you can't use it to detect all changes, e. g. symmetrical changes result in the same CHECKSUM! Solution 2: 1.Run the following query. Before executing query replace DB_Name with your database name…

Merge and Merge join transformation in SSIS

Using Merge Transformation we can combine two sorted data-set into single data-set basically Merge Transformation used to combines rows from two sorted data flows into one sorted data flow. Following tasks you may perform using Merge Transformation: 1.Suppose we have a scenario like, we need to merge data from a database table and excel means we want to merge data from two different data sources. For such type of scenario, you can use Merge Transformation. 2.If we want to merge data from two same structured tables but exists two different servers. 3.Sometimes we get an error due to data in a row, after correcting errors in the data we can re-merge rows easily. See below explanations may help you to understand Merge Transformation: I do evaluate here, you already know about the data source, data conversion, data flow, task flow, control flow etc. Note:Before Merge transformation, we need to sort the data using Sort Transformation. After sorting data add data path to Merge…
