Follow the following steps:

1. Check your DCOM settings using DCOMCNFG

Following setting should be in place
DCOMCNFG

 Application Tab
    SQLLDBREG
      Identity Tab
         The interactive user

 Default Security Tab
    Default Access Permissions
        Edit Default Button
           Everyone (or domain\account and System)

2. Missing or unregistered DLLs

ON THE CLIENT

Make sure following file is present and registered:
c:\program files\microsoft sql server\mssql\80\tools\binn, then register it:
regsvr32 sdiclnt.dll

Make sure following files are present and register them as shown:

c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\SQL Debugging:
sqldbg.dll
sqldbreg.exe

then, register the files:

regsvr32 sqldbg.dll
sqldbreg /RegServer

ON THE SERVER:

Make sure c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\SQL Debugging\sqldbg.dll is there and registered

Copy file mssdi98.dll from \x86\other\sdi to where sqlservr.exe resides (e.g. c:\program files\microsoft sql server\mssql\binn)


After that restart the SQL Server Service.

I do have querry Analyser but the problem is parameters are
build at run time. Okay still those parameters can be extracted from VB. Then again how can I step throgh the Procedure. If it is possible through querry analyser please let me know. Thanks

There is no way that you step through it one step at a time like in Visual Basic.  When I am debugging the procedures I copy the stored procedure into my query analyzer and then I just execute it section be section with some extra select and print statements inside to return results along the way.  It would be neat to have a debugger like that,  I am sure it will come.
