SQL99 Syntax and Description

DROP PROCEDURE procedure_name {RESTRICT | CASCADE}

This command is essentially the same as DROP FUNCTION, except that it acts upon stored procedures rather than functions.

Microsoft SQL Server Syntax and Variations

DROP PROCEDURE [owner_name.]procedure_name [,...n]

Microsoft SQL Server allows the removal of multiple stored procedures by placing a comma between the name of each one. Individual versions of stored procedures cannot be dropped. The entire group of stored-procedure versions must be dropped.

Oracle Syntax and Variations

DROP PROCEDURE [owner_name.]procedure_name

Oracle also allows any procedure to be dropped based on the owner name. Users with the system privilege, DROP ANY PROCEDURE, may drop procedures owned by other users.
