copy SQL query from ACCESS to SQL

I have some queries in Access and I am trying to use these as stored procedures in SQL, is there a way like copy/paste that I can use to copy these queries to the stored procedure windows in SQL Enterprise Manager ( then make some changes to them if needed) instead of retyping the whole thing again?

Use Control+C to copy and Control+V to paste.

Yes you can do this, only copy the SQL querys encapsulate then in stored procedures (make changes if needed) and go ahead

the problem is how to copy them, because it looks like there is no paste option in the Enterprise Manager stored procedure window? is there another way, please send it in details.

Open the Access queries in SQL view, highlight the SQL, hit Control+C(copy). Open a new stored procedure, then use Control+V to paste the SQL. Name the stored procedure and clean up the SQL (SQL Server does not like semicolons, for example).

By the way, if you need help cleaning up the SQL (INNER JOIN, ...), just ask.

by the way, is it possible to have a stored procedure reads from another stored procedure??. I have a stored procedure that should  read from another stored procedure, but whenever I try to save the new stored procedure , an error comes up saying there is no object with the name of the old stored procedure that it is reading from??

when I save the first stored procedure as a view, then the new stored procedure can read it with no problem???

tomookCommented:
First, you should use views whenever you can. Second, when you are editing a stored procedure in Enterprise Manager, the first 5 or 6 lines are to delete the stored procedure. If you use the route of editing an existing stored procedure to create a new one, watch out for this! If these are not the problems, post your Transact SQL and I will see what I can do. Might want to make it a new question so the other experts can get in on it without spending points.

this is the old stored procedure(qtmpRainFall) that is called by the second one
two parameters are sent to it

if exists (select * from sysobjects where id = object_id('dbo.qtmpRainFall') and sysstat & 0xf = 4)
      drop procedure dbo.qtmpRainFall
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE qtmpRainFall @MyBeginDate datetime, @MyEndDate datetime AS
select @MyEndDate=dateadd(day,1,@MyEndDate)
SELECT tblFieldMeasurement.CollectionDate, Avg(tblFieldReading.ReadingValue) AS Rainfall,

FROM tblFieldMeasurement INNER JOIN (tblFieldReading INNER JOIN tlkpEMParameter ON
tblFieldReading.EMParameterID = tlkpEMParameter.EMParameterID) ON
tblFieldMeasurement.MeasurementID = tblFieldReading.MeasurementID
GROUP BY tblFieldMeasurement.CollectionDate, tlkpEMParameter.EMParameterName
HAVING tblFieldMeasurement.CollectionDate Between @myBeginDate And
 @myEndDate AND tlkpEMParameter.EMParameterName="Rainfall"

GO

this is the new stored procedure that calls the previous one

CREATE PROCEDURE qsnpRainFall @MyBeginDate datetime, @MyEndDate datetime AS
SELECT convert(char,collectiondate,1) AS JoinDate, qtmpRainfall.Rainfall,
Rainfall *0.4 AS MMGalRain
FROM qtmpRainfall

actually I added the parameters here (@MyEndDate, @MyBeginDate) because I thought these might solve the problem but it didn't (the new stored procedure reads some information from the old stored procedure results without sending any arguments, but since the old stored procedure needs argument anyway, I thought I might send them through the new one)
