Hi,
I want to copy a stored procedure in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2005 to make some mods without destroying the original...havnt done this before and was expecting a "copy" option in the sub menu (see pic below)..
my question is what is the easiest way to create an exact duplicate "test" stored procedure...I just want  the same procedure with a new name .
thanks

Select "Script Stored Procedure As..." then "Create to New Query Window"

Once the script opens, change the name of the procedure in the script and execute.
