Hi,
I create a VB.Net program which get data from SQL server. My DataAdapter link to a SQL store procedure (I use DataAdapter Configuration Wizard), but it does not understand the table with "#" (#test). This is my store proc:
create  PROC category_get_test
AS
BEGIN
      SET NOCOUNT ON
      create table #test
      (
            id char(2),
            name char(50)
      )
      
      insert into #test
      select id, name
      from category

      select id, name from #test
      SET NOCOUNT OFF
END
How can I fix this? Please help.
Thanks.

I use DataAdapter Configuration Wizard to set the sqlcommand for the adapter (at design time). At the step "Bind Command to Existing stored procedure", I select the stored then go to next step, the error msg is: Invalid object name "#test".

I think it is because you are using a temporary table...the # is a temporary table that is dropped at the end of the user connection...You may need to create a permenant table and then run the following stored proc...this should work.
I would use a TEMP table for holding values within the stored proc for calculation/manipulation purposes and either return an @ReturnID or a Query from a permenant table...

eg...
create table tblTest
     (
          id char(2),
          name char(50)
     )


create  PROC category_get_test
AS
BEGIN
     SET NOCOUNT ON
         
     insert into tblTest
     select id, name
     from category

     select id, name from tblTest
     SET NOCOUNT OFF
END

Of course using a permanent table is ok but i would like a temporary table. We have a lot of users running this store, so it will create a lot of tables.
Is there other way?

So you have tried my approach to make sure that you are able to successfully connect and use a stored procedure in this way? I am just making sure that it is not another problem other then the temporary table.

I think the problem is that you are using a local temporary table that gets destroyed when the user connection closes.

Why could you not just return the results

create  PROC category_get_test
AS
BEGIN
     SET NOCOUNT ON
     
     select id, name
     from category

     SET NOCOUNT OFF
END

of course we can do like this. this is just an example. I ask for the case that we need to calculate within the stote proc so we need to user temporary table.

Well, since a temp local table is scoped to a single SQL connection, the table will be destroyed. I think you need to approach this differently to try and obtain your results. For instance, bringing back a dataset of real values and manipulating them in code from your front end, or designing queries that return result sets from your actual tables. Local temp tables can be used to do calculating within your stored proc, but can not be returned to VB.net since they are scoped to the connection and destroyed upon leaving the procedure.
