I have a update statement that is using a linked server method from within a SPROC

when i try and create the SPROC - it fails on first update
showing error message
Msg 7416, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_LeaverProcess, Line 7
Access to the remote server is denied because no login-mapping exists.

But when i do
select * from NEMESIS_LINKED.intranet.dbo.tblusers - the select works fine

Why is the update failing via the call but the select isnt


CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_LeaverProcess] 
AS
 
 
/* Set user status to Leaver for Intranet */
 
UPDATE NEMESIS_LINKED.intranet.dbo.tblusers
set status = 2, LeaveDate = GetDate()
 
FROM NEMESIS_LINKED.Intranet.dbo.tblUsers tblUsers_1 
JOIN dbo.view_SelectTodaysLeavers LEAV
  ON tblUsers_1.EmployeeID = LEAV.LoginID
 
/*Revoke Worksite login access */
 
update ws
set ws.login='N'
from MINOS_LINKED.docs.mhgroup.docusers ws, view_SelectTodaysLeavers TODL
where ws.userid = TODL.LoginID collate Latin1_General_CI_AS

Have you added the necessary login mappings using sp_addlinkedsrvlogin?  There's an explanation of linked server security here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa213768(SQL.80).aspx
