I have a stored procedure proc_users_select that returns a set of results.

I could do something like this:

DECLARE MY_CURSOR CURSOR FOR
SELECT * FROM USERS

however, my stored procedure isn't quite that simple, so what I'd rather do is:

DECLARE MY_CURSOR CURSOR FOR
proc_users_select

but I get an error message
Incorrect syntax near 'proc_users_select'.

Is this not allowed or is my syntax just wrong?

thanks

you could do


create table #T (...
 )
--where #t matches the output format of proc_users_select
insert into #t
exec proc_users_select
 
DECLARE MY_CURSOR CURSOR FOR
select * from #t

Open in new window
