Is QUOTED_IDENTIFIER a database wide setting?

Hello Experts. I noticed that I have to set QUOTED_IDENTIFIER=ON in my stored procedure in order to query from an XML datatype (to get the elements out). Is this QUOTED_IDENTIFIER a setting at the sproc level? That is, if I set QUOTED_IDENTIFIER=ON in one sproc, will it turn it on in the other sprocs within the same database? (I only want this setting in my sproc only and no others) Sorry for the dumb question!

Hi,

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER is set at parse time. Setting at parse time means that if the SET statement is present in the batch or stored procedure, it takes effect, regardless of whether code execution actually reaches that point; and the SET statement takes effect before any statements are executed.

or
When executed inside a stored procedure, the setting of SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER is not changed.

Thanks for your response! I think this

When executed inside a stored procedure, the setting of SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER is not changed.

answers my question.

If at the top of my stored procedure "ProcA"  e.g.

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER = ON
GO
CREATE ProcA

That ON setting will not be enforced when other sprocs (ProcB, ProcC, ProcD) are executed? (unless they too have SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER = ON). Is that right? THank you!!
