Execute a series of SQL Server 2000 Stored Procedures

Hello,
I have several stored procedures that I need to run in a weekly basis.  What I need is to create a 'master' stored procedure that will have a loop in which the code:

- Gets the name of the stored procedure
- Executes it
- Makes sure it was successful
- Runs the next one.  

And here's the fine print.
I will execute the 'master' stored procedure from a VB.NET Windows application.
The Stored Procedures update records based on criteria specified in said SPs.
I have a table where I have the names of these SPs, so I can select them from it as I loop.  
Also, if one of the stored procedures FAILS for any reason, I need to rollback ALL the transactions done by the previous stored procedures from that list and spit out a message with the name of the offending stored procedure.

Does anyone have a good example of how to accomplish this?

Thanks!

sure? I would use a sql server agent job instead...


anyhow:
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.your_master_prod
AS
BEGIN
DECLARE @err INT
DECLARE c CURSOR FOR SELECT proc_name FROM proc_table ORDER BY execution_order;
DECLARE @proc_name SYSNAME 
BEGIN TRANSACTION 
OPEN c
FETCH NEXT FROM c INTO @proc_name
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
  EXEC @proc_name
  
  SET @err = @@ERROR
  IF @err <> 0 GOTO DONE 
 
  FETCH NEXT FROM c INTO @proc_name
END 
DONE:
CLOSE c
DEALLOCATE c 
IF @err = 0
  COMMIT
ELSE
  ROLLBACK 
END

Hi Angel,

This looks great!  It's simple and slim.  I do have a question though.  I am not supposed to use Cursors, so.. do you think I could use a select statement instead?  If so, could you please change your code so it reflects this?

Thanks!
