    So when you go to [DatabaseName] -- [Programmability] -- [Stored Procedures] only teh system stored procedures are showing.  This could mean that your userid does not have permmissions to the stored procedures.  One way would to check the user permssions at the database lvl to see what role(s) and securable level permissions are configured.

    I think the procedures you are looking for would be in the mssqlsystemresource database (usually just refered to as the Resource database.)  That database is normally hidden.  You can (not recommended) make a copy of the database, and attach to that copy to read it's procedures.

    Or did you mean the procedures custom to a specific database?
