How do I detect a local temp table

P: n/a
Dom
I sometimes begin a script like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------
if exists (select * from sysobjects where name = 'T_Table') drop table
T_Table

select * into T_Table (etc)
-------------------------------------------------------------

How do I do this with a local temp table? I thought of this:

if exists (select * from sysobjects where name like '#Temp_%') drop
table #Temp

.... but that seems dangerous to me. Is there a better way?

I normally use this approach which works well:

IF OBJECT_ID(N'tempdb..#Temp', N'U') IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE #Temp;
