I have accidently overwritten a stroed procedure I was developing with an alter command. Does SQL 2005 keep a tempory copy or backup of the original stored procedure anywhere.

Sadly not.

Your best bet would be if you have a recent full backup that you can restore as another database; i.e. "YourDatabase_RESTORE"

you can use the backup copy of the database then restore the same separately and extract the SP code. re run on the actual DB.
one more dirty way is to open the log file of the DB in a text editor and look for stored proc name. if lucky you may get the create statement in the log file

Many thanks for your help, unfortunatley I had been working on the stored proc for a couple of hours this morning and had not yet backed up the DB (my own stupid fault). The database is only for development and is set to simple logging. I just wander if sql happen to keep a temp copy of the alter stored proc is some un documented location.
