comment code in Profiler Trace in TextData Column

After Running profiler, all the text in TextData column seem to start with '--' prefix, which is the comment notation in t-SQL. For example, the following is one TextData element.

-- proc_SelectBenefitsForUser  SELECT  DISTINCT   --r.UserPK,   --r.Progress,   --k.TurnkeyPK,   vw_PayCode, s.[Place] --, z.Tag, b.Tag  FROM   dbo.tblBenefits

Some TextData's start with exec proc_name, without the '--'.

Is this ok? what exactly does it mean? Is there any significance to the '--'

Thanks

I wouldn't pay a lot of attention to the --.  Include the objectname column in the trace so you can see the name easier...use the code in the object to view it...not the textdata in profier.

I have the objectname option chosen, but I do not see the Objectname, but objectid in the destination table where I am storing the trace. How does the objectname get converted to objectid?

It depends on the event whether or not the obj name shows...make sure it's checked when you define the trace.

yes, it is checked, but it shows as objectid. is there a system table where this objectid has to be converted to objectname?
