Is there a way to find out when a certain DB object (e.g. Stored procedure) was last modified?

SYSOBJECTS table contains crdate and refdate fields. None of these, however, appear to tell me when when the object was last updated.

Is there a way to find that out?

Thanks a lot

Try to search SQLTeam. This has been discussed numerous times not long ago.
