This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The ReCompileReferences method causes recompilation, prior to the next execution, of any stored procedure or trigger depending on the referenced table.
Microsoft SQL Server stored procedures and triggers are compiled to enhance execution time. Creation of indexes and changes in data distribution statistics can cause obsolescence in a data access plan in a stored procedure or trigger. The ReCompileReferences method forces recompilation of all stored procedures or triggers accessing the referenced table, and defined in the database of the referenced table.
SQL Server version 7.0 recompiles stored procedures and triggers when the optimizer determines that recompilation is advantageous. Using the ReCompileReferences method is not required in most instances.
