Does the stored procedure use a cursor or is it a client generated cursor?  If it's a stored procedure you could insert the data into a temp table.  Then query that table or export it from SQL Server.  If it's a client cursor you need a destination grid or table or something to hold the data.  What client are you using Access?, VB?

You can save the records to temp table and just do a SELECT from this table at the end of the procedure. Then on your client you will have to call
OpenRecordset(EXECUTE your_sp)

I think that you might not need the cursor.
You procedure should look like this:

CREATE PROC YourProc
AS
SELECT * FROM YourTable

And, as previous comments indicated, simply issue a "EXEC YourProc" instead of the usual "SELECT * FROM Table" will return you the recordset.

It is a cursor, and the client is MFC.
How could i create the temp table (please give in details). Need to delate the temp table ?
On my client i used "exec my_sp " this statement to call the Stored Procedure.
does i cause any problem if i used the temp table and several client module run the Stored Procedure at the same time.

You can create temp table as usuall table using CREATE TABLE statement, you just need to put # in front of the table name (CREATE TABLE #aaa...

You don't need to delete it, it will be deleted automatically after sp execution.

There will be no problem with multiple clients, separate  temp table will be created for each instance of sp ( for each connection).
