Hi, I'm using SQL SERVER 2005...
is it possible to use OPENROWSET with a EXEC command?

Something like:

SELECT *
FROM OPENROWSET('SQLOLEDB','localhost';'sa';'P@ssw0rd',
'sp_executeSQL N''MyDataBase..sp_GetMyData 2008, null, 4'' ') TblA

Strangely enough (or not) this doesn't work :)

Is it possible to make it work?

Thanks,
Alex

Sorry for leaving this so long but I never actually tried the solution.
We ended using a different approach at the business level so ended up not needing this.

I'm accepting it as it could be a cause.

Thanks,
Alex

just happened across this, and thought you might like to see how :

select * from openrowset('SQLNCLI', 'Server=MY_SVR_NAME;Trusted_Connection=yes;','EXEC MY_DB_NAME..USP_MY_SP null,null,null,null') a


Now, it will fail unless the stored procedure does have a predefined (ie at create sp time) list of columns. It is quite "sensitive" (read fussy).
