For the 2 stored procedures I am getting the same error in different lines with similar condition.
 
In storedprocedure1   I am getting the   SET @Flag1 = @Flag1 + 1  where it is DECLARE @Flag1 TINYINT

Server: Msg 220, Level 16, State 2, Procedure uspBatchClientHierarchy, Line 100
Arithmetic overflow error for data type tinyint, value = 256.



In storedprocedure2  I am getting the   SET @Flag2 = @Flag2 + 1  where it is DECLARE @Flag2 SMALLINT

Server: Msg 220, Level 16, State 2, Procedure uspBatchClientHierarchy, Line 150
Arithmetic overflow error for data type tinyint, value =  32768

try print @flag1,@flag2
to check what is the value it reached at the time of error. may be you need to initialize the value
set @flag1 = 0
after some iteration

other wise as aneesh suggested change datatype to int
