select * from information_schema.routines
where (len(routine_definition)) > 4000

this is SQL 2005. what would you correct in the above query?

If your stored procedure has more than 4000 characters, then the part after the 4000 characters will not appear in INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES.

In SS 2005, you can use sys.sql_modules table without worrying about this problem, because the definition column is nvarchar(max).
