t-sql stored procedure create scripts
You can right-click on the database in the Object Explorer and do a Task > Generate Scripts.
That allows you to pick a whole bunch of objects to be scripted (e.g. tables, views, stored procs) and you can store those into a single big SQL file, or one SQL file per object. Works really quite well!
Update: if you want to do this in the SQL Server Management Studio app, you can use this SQL script to find the stored procs and their definitions - you cannot however have SQL Server Mgmt Studio write out the files to disk, that doesn't work - but you can copy the results into e.g. Excel.
SELECT pr.name , pr.type_desc , pr.create_date , mod.definition FROM sys.procedures pr INNER JOIN sys.sql_modules mod ON pr.object_id = mod.object_id WHERE pr.Is_MS_Shipped = 0
To script out all ones matching a particular criteria you could use something like the below.
DECLARE @t VARCHAR(max) = ''; SELECT @t = @t + 'If OBJECT_ID(''' + QUOTENAME(OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(object_id)) + '.' + QUOTENAME(OBJECT_NAME(object_id)) + ''',''p'') IS NOT NULL DROP PROCEDURE ' + QUOTENAME(OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(object_id)) + '.' + QUOTENAME(OBJECT_NAME(object_id)) + ' GO SET ANSI_NULLS ' + CASE WHEN uses_ansi_nulls = 1 THEN 'ON' ELSE 'OFF' END + ' GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ' + CASE WHEN uses_quoted_identifier = 1 THEN 'ON' ELSE 'OFF' END + ' GO ' + definition + ' GO ' FROM [sys].[sql_modules] WHERE OBJECTPROPERTY (object_id,'IsProcedure' )=1 AND OBJECT_NAME(object_id) LIKE '%some_patttern%' /*Stops the long text from getting truncated in SSMS*/ SELECT @t AS [processing-instruction(x)] FOR XML PATH('')
