    Question SQL -- One stored proc for multiple DBs?

    Hey, all!

    Basically, I have a bunch of logic that would be better in a stored procedure, but we have multiple clients, each with their own copy of the code we're running on a separate physical DB. All the databases are on the same server (SQL 2000).

    My question is, is it possible to create sort of a "global stored procedure" that will execute as a stored procedure on whatever database calls it? In other words, if i have two DBs, "client1" and "client2", is there a way to have a stored procedure, "proc1" out there so that both the client1 and client2 databases could call it and have it work its magic?

    Another question that deserves to be asked: is this the way to go in such a scenario? I would like something that has the business logic in place and is re-usable to avoid so much duplicate procedure code.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    You could probably gin up something that will handle this scenario. That said, I would just add the proc to the script to generate each client's database. If it changes, just run the alter script against all databases. Which is reasonably easy to automate and alot cleaner than having a shared dependency.
