How can I get the results of a system proc into a temp table? I tried this, but it breaks:

select xp_msver Language
into #junk

Yet if you run "xp_msver Language" by itself, it works fine and returns 1 record with a few columns.

create table #temp (i int, Name  varchar(10), ij int , charval  varchar(100) )

SET ROWCOUNT 1
insert into #Temp
EXEC master..xp_msver  Language
select * from #temp
DROP TABLE #temp

Invalid object name '#temp'.

I was thinking SELECT INTO because that auto-creates the table.

SweatCoder,

Did you include the first "Creata table " statement also

You can't do this, you need to create the table first
