the query i have is

select name from syscomments a,sysobjects b where a.id = b.id and xtype = 'p' and text like '%something%'
and it brings a lot of records, more than what we created (duplicates too)

this is much cleaner

select ROUTINE_NAME
from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES
WHERE ROUTINE_NAME LIKE '%something%

your query brings duplicates, because when a stored procedure is, when longer, "split" into several rows in syscomments... and if several part are matching ...

apart from that, there is no "system" stored procedure flag, so you cannot "filter" for such things.

select name 
from syscomments a,sysobjects b where a.id = b.id and xtype = 'p' and text like '%something%'
group by name
