Sounds like it has been dropped if you can't see it listed.

You don't need to save it. You just run it and it will store in the database and run from there.

On a side note, prefixing stored procedures with sp_ is not good practice:

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_item]   
 @oitem varchar(30)  
AS  
BEGIN  
 select itemid,item,Quantity from items where item=@oitem  
  
END
 

Open in new window


and then I used exec dbo.sp_item 'ham'

It is giving an error as invalid object name dbo.sp_item
