Error Message:
Msg 2004, Level 16, State 1, Procedure ShowMe, Line 5
Procedure ‘%.*ls’ has already been created with group number %d. Create procedure with an unused group number.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to create a procedure with a group number, but this group number already exists for this procedure.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Error of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. Group numbers for procedures must be unique for a procedure.

Versions:
All version of SQL Server.

Example(s):
USE tempdb;
GO
DROP PROCEDURE dbo.ShowMe
GO
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.ShowMe
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON
SELECT GETDATE();
RETURN 0
GO
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.ShowMe;2
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON
SELECT GETDATE();
RETURN 0
GO
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.ShowMe;2
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON
SELECT GETDATE();
RETURN 0
GO

Remarks:
In the above example we try twice to create a procedure with the group number of 2. The second CREATE PROCEDURE statement raises the error.
