Try using a temporary table instead of a table variable.
From what I recall, table variables can only be used in the current context, while the EXEC command runs in a separate session than the current.

Also, the table you have in your SQL should match your temp table's name.

you cannot do that.because the dynamic sql in the msforeachdb is in a separate scope, it cannot "see" the declaration in that "outer" scope.you have to work with either a global temp table (##temptable) or a fixed regular table ...
