I created a large stored proc a couple of days ago and it had been running fine and updating my tables as intended.  I noticed this morning, that my data was not being updated via the proc and went into sql 2005 management studio right clicked on the procedure under stored procedures,  .. clicked modify and noticed that the proc had only 10 lines of system generated code with the name of my procedure in it, but none of the sql that I wrote for this procedure.  what has happened, am I missing something???

jorge_toriz,
here is what I see when I click modify....  It also will execute successfully

USE [MYDATABASE]
GO
/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[MYSP]    Script Date: 10/16/2008 11:16:40 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
ALTER procedure [dbo].[MYSP]
as
set nocount off

Let me clarify my ideas... did your stored procedure code gone away?... is that the only code that you see when you request a modify script?

Check this query to see the last time your stored procedure was modified:

SELECT name, create_date, modify_date
FROM sys.objects WHERE name = 'your_stored_procedure_name'

Does any other user have privileges to create or modify stored procedures in your database or schema?

I noticed that as well.  When I have the sp open and click on execute it updates the modified date that is probably the reason.  I ran the sp in its current condition and it updated the modified date

Soooo weird... this date (modify_date) in sys.objects view only updates when you modify the structure of your object

Yep, somebody modified your stored procedure... I can bet for that
