Hi,

I have few stored procedures which are receiving the same input parameters(2 input parameters). May I know whether I can pass the stored procedure name as a global variable to my DTS package?

I tried to put the SQL statement as "EXEC ? ?, ?", where the first question mark is my stored procedure name, 2nd and 3rd question marks are the 2 input parameters. And I got "Syntax error or access violation" when I clicked on Parameter button.

Could you please advise?

Thank you very much!

I think what you will need to do is have a small stored procedure which takes 3 parameters and generates a dynamic SQL string from these and executes it e.g.

create procedure dynamic_proc (@sp_name varchar(100), @param1 int, @param2 int)
as
begin
declare @MySQL varchar(200)
set @MySQL = @sp_name + ' ' + @param1 + ',' + @param2
exec (@MySQL)
end

then your DTS SQLstatement can be
dynamic_proc ?,?,?
