sys.numbered_procedure_parameters (Transact-SQL)

Contains one row for each parameter of a numbered procedure. When you create a numbered stored procedure, the base procedure is number 1. All subsequent procedures have numbers 2, 3, and so forth. sys.numbered_procedure_parameters contains the parameter definitions for all subsequent procedures, numbered 2 and greater. This view does not show parameters for the base stored procedure (number = 1). The base stored procedure is similar to a nonnumbered stored procedure. Therefore, its parameters are represented in sys.parameters (Transact-SQL).

Important note Important

Numbered procedures are deprecated. Use of numbered procedures is discouraged. A DEPRECATION_ANNOUNCEMENT event is fired when a query that uses this catalog view is compiled.

Note Note

XML and CLR parameters are not supported for numbered procedures.
