When I write any procedure for UI functionality, I may require to throw the Procedure Name to UI if any error occurs, This will help people to identify/Isolate the bug if occured
Also I Dont want to hard code the procedure name in the SPs because sometime I/someone may change the SP Name in future.
How can I prevent such a basic mistake as well as use a consistent process?
