Stored Procedure Help!

Ok, here's a doozy, that I don't know if anybody has encountered:

I have this T-SQL script:

DECLARE @results varchar(1024)
EXEC ids_to_names @id_list = '34, 35, 36', @results = ''
SELECT @results

What it does is take those numbers(34,35,36) and convert them to what their foreign key dictates.  It returns something like this :  Active Member, Passive Member, Non-Member.  

Here's the problem:  When I execute this is the SQL Query Analyzer, it works all hunky-dory.

When I try and execute this from an ASP page using this script:

<!--#include virtual="/connections/connection.asp"-->
<%
set rs = my_Conn.execute("DECLARE @results varchar(1024) EXEC ids_to_names @id_list = '34, 35, 36', @results = '' SELECT @results")
if not rs.eof then
  response.write rs(0)
else
  response.write "EOF"
end if
set rs = Nothing
%>

I get this error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e37'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Invalid object name 'ttemp'.

/common/sp_test.asp, line 3

But I don't get this error when I run it in the SQL Query Analyzer....weird.

NOTE: I DO create a temporary table called 'ttemp'...use it, then drop it...however, when I reload this page, it says "Table already exists"...I'm at a loss...

Any help would be greatly appreciated (and subsequently awarded :P)

PS:  Here's the SP:

ALTER PROCEDURE ids_to_names (
    @id_list    varchar(32),@results  varchar(1024)
)
AS
    DECLARE @query varchar(256), @name VARCHAR(32)
    SET @query = 'SELECT [membership types].[membership type english] INTO ttemp FROM [Membership types] WHERE [membership type id] IN (' + @id_list + ')'
    EXEC( @query )
    DECLARE temp_cursor CURSOR FOR
    SELECT ttemp.[membership type english] FROM ttemp
    OPEN temp_cursor
    FETCH NEXT FROM temp_cursor INTO @name
    WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
        BEGIN
        IF @results = ''
            SET @results = @name
        ELSE
            SET @results = @results + ', ' + @name
        FETCH NEXT FROM temp_cursor INTO @name
        END
    CLOSE temp_cursor
    DEALLOCATE temp_cursor
    DROP TABLE ttemp
    SELECT @results

Cheers,

Dan
