insert into using exec proc

Hi,

Is it possible to insert into a temp table, the results from exec'ing a stored proc?

i.e.

insert into #temp1(col1, col2, col3...)
 exec myProc

Cheers, Andy

That is a MS-SQL extention that is not (yet) supported in Sybase.
However I too would have some uses for it whenit comes.

Chris is right. However, you can insert the final result into a temp table before exiting the proc and access the same temp table within the parent proc.

Example:

Create procedure sp_test
As
Begin
-- Final Step before exiting
insert into #temptable (col1, col2)
select col1, col2
from MyTable
End

--Parent Proc
Create Proc sp_Parent
As
Begin

exec sp_test

select * from #temptable

End

One more point I should add, to make sp_Parent compile you will need to create #temptable outside the procedure.

create table #temptable
(
col1 int,
col2 varchar(100),
coletc int
)

go
--Parent Proc
Create Proc sp_Parent
As
Begin

exec sp_test

select * from #temptable

End

go
Drop table #temptable
go
