USE FyiCenterData;
GO

DROP PROCEDURE datetime;
GO
Command(s) completed successfully.

SELECT * FROM sys.procedures;
GO
Name       object_id   schema_id   type type_desc           
---------- ----------- ----------- ---- --------------------
Hello      1621580815  1           P    SQL_STORED_PROCEDURE
date       1653580929  1           P    SQL_STORED_PROCEDURE
