Altering a procedure (Sybase Central)

You can alter an existing procedure.


You must be the owner of the procedure or have one of the following privileges:

  • ALTER ANY PROCEDURE system privilege
  • ALTER ANY OBJECT system privilege

Context and remarks

In Sybase Central, you cannot rename an existing procedure directly. Instead, you must create a new procedure with the new name, copy the previous code to it, and then delete the old procedure.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. In the left pane, double-click Procedures & Functions.

  3. Select the procedure.

  4. Use one of the following methods to edit the procedure:

    • In the right pane, click the SQL tab.

    • Right-click the procedure and click Edit in New Window.


      You can open a separate window for each procedure and copy code between procedures.

    • To add or edit a procedure comment, right-click the procedure and click Properties.

      If you use the Database Documentation Wizard to document your SQL Anywhere database, you have the option to include these comments in the output.


The code of the procedure is altered.
