There is procedre in my database, PROCEDURE SYS.HANDLE_TBS_DDL. I want to see the script or the "code" that is currently residing in the database. Which table DBA_% or view V$_% can show me the code of this procedure. This procedure is there and is working as expected. I just want to see the code and see what calls it is making and where.

DBA_SOURCE

if the procedure is part of a package, you'll need to look for the package name, not the procedure

To be a little more specific:

select text from dba_source where owner='SYS' and name='HANDLE_TBS_DDL' order by line;


Also, you shouldn't create objects in the SYS schema.

>>'PACKAGE'  

How do you know it's a package?  

Anyway, to see the actual source you need: type='PACKAGE BODY'

Based on the name, it is a stand-alone procedure  
I only mentioned the package part to be thorough

so

type = 'PROCEDURE'  


would be correct, but redundant because there couldn't be another object with that name.
the type would only apply if it was, in fact, a package.
