If your question is 'Why shouldn't I create stored procedures with a prefix of 'sp_' it's because SQL Server treats them as system stored procedures (special?) which can be accessed from any database, and having a user-defined stored procedure prefixed sp_ could cause problems if there's a system stored procedure with the same name.

If your question is something else, please ask it in simple English, as it's not obvious reading this question.

Please support the creation of a trigger that prevents creating a stored procedure where the name begins with prefix "sp_"
