How to drop Stored Procedure from All or Multiple databases in SQL Server

Scenario: How to drop Stored Procedure from multiple or all Databases in SQL Server

In my last post, I wrote How to create a Stored Procedure in all the databases or multiple databases in SQL Server. You can Click here to see that post.

In this post we are going to write the script how to drop the Stored Procedure in multiple or all SQL Server databases. You can filter the list of Databases on which you like to run the script by changing the where clause "Select name from sys.databases where *********"

I have cursor to loop through the databases. You need to provide the Schema Name and Stored Procedure that you would like to drop from multiple or all the databases in SQL Server.


--Provide the Stored Procedure Name and Schema Name that you would like to drop from multiple or all databases
    Declare @SP_Schema VARCHAR(128)
    DECLARE @SP_Name VARCHAR(128)

    --Provide Schema Name and Stored Procedure you would like to drop 
    SET @SP_Schema='dbo'
    SET @SP_Name='SP_Test'


    DECLARE @DDL VARCHAR(MAX)
    SET @DDL='IF (EXISTS (Select * from sys.objects
where name='''''+@SP_Name+'''''
and schema_id=schema_id('''''+@SP_Schema+''''')  
and type=''''P''''
and type_desc=''''SQL_STORED_PROCEDURE''''))
BEGIN
Drop Procedure '+@SP_Schema+'.'+@SP_Name+'
END'

Print @DDL
    DECLARE @DatabaseName AS VARCHAR(500)
    
--DECLARE CURSOR
    DECLARE CUR CURSOR
    FOR
    --Choose the DBs on which you would like to run the script
    SELECT NAME
    FROM sys.databases
    WHERE database_id > 4

--OPEN CURSOR
    OPEN CUR

--NEXT NEXT RECORD 
    FETCH NEXT
    FROM CUR
    INTO @DatabaseName

    WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
    BEGIN
        DECLARE @DBName AS NVARCHAR(500);

        SET @DBName = QUOTENAME(N'' + @DatabaseName + '');

        --USE Dynamic SQL To Change DB name and run DDL statement to drop Stored Procedure
        EXEC (
                N'USE ' + @DBName + N'; EXEC('''+@DDL+''');'
                );

        FETCH NEXT
        FROM CUR
        INTO @DatabaseName
    END

    CLOSE CUR

    DEALLOCATE CUR
