This is a very basic question however I am not sure what the following line is stating.

USE [SpeakerheartDev]  -  this is the first statement in the procedure.

I believe that it is stating to use the SpeakerheartDev datatbase, but what is the need for this?  If the procedure is created within that database, what is the purpose?
