Q

Finding the latest altered date of a stored procedure

SQL Server expert Greg Low explains how to find the latest altered date of a stored procedure.

How can I find the latest altered date of a stored procedure?
On SQL Server 2000, this value isn't stored. You will see a column in the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.ROUTINES view that suggests that it's what you want but unfortunately, it always returns the creation date instead ie: the CREATED and LAST_ALTERED columns both always return the same value.
