What is more efficient? 1 stored procedure with 10 different queries, each surrounded by an IF statement, or 10 different stored procedures, each with one query?

Or does it not matter?

SQL Server 2008, by the way.

Thanks!

10 different stored procedures, each with one query, as the Query Optimizer can handle optimizing a single query.

The optimizer won't know what to do with 10 queries surrounded by IF statements.
