A stored procedure is a named group of SQL statements that have been previously created
and stored in the server database. Stored procedures accept input parameters so that a
single procedure can be used over the network by several clients using different input data.
And when the procedure is modified, all clients automatically get the new version. Stored
procedures reduce network traffic and improve performance. Stored procedures can be
used to help ensure the integrity of the database.
e.g. sp_helpdb, sp_renamedb, sp_depends etc.
