(1)Created new procedure named My Proc

Create proc Myproc
select 1

(2) sp_rename Myproc, NewMyProc

Caution: Changing any part of an object name could break scripts and stored procedures.

(3) Now when I executed : sp_Helptext NewMyProc
 The actual Result which I got is :

Create proc Myproc
select 1

The result I was expecting was:

Create proc NewMyProc
select 1

Thanks for reporting this.

sp_helptext shows the body of the proc the way it was defined. sp_rename does not change that. I can see the value of changing the body with the new name, but it is a low priority at this point.
