Go Up to Sybase ASE Object Wizards

Procedures are a reusable block of PL/SQL, stored in the database, that applications can call. Procedures streamline code development, debugging, and maintenance by being reusable. Procedures enhance database security by letting you write procedures granting users execution privileges to tables rather than letting them access tables directly.

To create a new procedure using a wizard:

  1. Open a creation wizard for a procedure. For details, see Opening an Object Wizard.
  2. Use the following topics as a guide to setting properties and performing tasks as you pass through the wizard panels:
  3. Finally, use the Execute button to create the object.
