I have a MySQL Routine that i want to edit.
When I click on 'View with all text' i can see the paragraph Routine_Definition with the actual instructions, but only in printer ready display.  If i click the SQL button it shows me only a generic select statement.  Not the real instructions of the procedure. How are you supposed to edit?

I go to my CPanel that has a MyPHPMyAdmin cPanel version 11.32 that opens up the database and I then click on Information_Schema.  In that list it has Routines.  In Routines are several  procedures with routine_definition that start Begin Select from etc.
I need to change the Where clause.  I do not care if this is accomplished by editing the existing one or creating a new one, delete the old and rename to the original or if an Experts-Exchange MySQL coder wants to see the actual code through Team Viewer to modify it (I will of course pay for this).  The update must replace the existing routine.
Let me know how this can be done and if  you  can modify a sql routine.

You will need to drop/create the routine to change it.  Get the current text of the routine, then drop it.  Edit the text, and create it using the new text.

I have my database and Information Schema as  a drop down selection where my routines are.  For some reason the program will  not allow you to edit if you try to modify a routine when you have the Information Schema selected.  It must be on the main database selection to edit an existing routine.  Another programmer i used to work with told me and it worked.
