How Stirct checking the database name while Creating Stored Procedure.

Hi Experts,

I have written a stored Procedures which uses multiple database, It works fine on my local environment, now when I execute the same code on UAT server to create the procedure; it gets created successfully despite the fact that there is no database  exists on UAT server with the name "Database2".

So, what I want to know is -
  - the way which should first validate whether all the objects and databases exists in the database and database server or not then only the procedure should get created once all the objects exist.

here is my code:

IF (EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sysobjects WHERE name = 'My_Proc' AND type = 'P'))
      DROP PROCEDURE dbo.My_Proc


UPDATE  <Database1>.dbo.tbl1
SET     FieldID = tbl2.FieldID
 FROM    <Database2>.dbo.tbl2 (NOLOCK)
      INNER JOIN <Database2>.dbo.Tbl3 (NOLOCK) ON Tbl3.ID = tbl2.ID
      INNER JOIN <Database2>.dbo.Tbl4 (NOLOCK) ON Tbl4.ID = tbl2.ID

in sql server you can create procedures trying to use databases/tables/views that do not exist (at that time)

now, what do you want to happen? not creating the procedure at all? in that case you will need some "intelligent" deployment tool to create things only when the requirements are there.

please clarify

Another case: What should happen when your databases exist when creating the procedure, but one is removed or renamed later?

The only thing, I can think which is a possibility here: Check the existence of your database(s) in the sproc and when they exist execute your UPDATE as dynamic SQL. This will avoid the runtime error.

Caveat: This is basically error hiding/masking. This is not a proper solution in most cases.
