Hi there,

I compiling a SPROC that calls sys.sp_executeSQL in SQL 2008 Express edition. It compiles but I get this error...

The module 'InsertRecords' depends on the missing object 'sys.sp_executeSQL'. The module will still be created; however, it cannot run successfully until the object exists.

If I look at Sys, I cant see the sproc there any ideas. Please dont tell me this is an Express issue and thats its only available in the professional edition...

thanks M

I'm looking at SQL 2008 and I don't see sys.sp_executeSQL either so that probably isn't the issue.

That is because it is called sp_executesql, just remove the "sys." and you should be fine.

sorry ewanqoya, I used dbo but it didnt work. I can get it to work if I use Master.sys.sp_executesql but I havnt seen this syntax used in any of the examples?  Have I to grant permissions or something

Please read what I stated:

Incidentally it is not "Master", but "master".   This is important in case you have a CS install.

You need to verify that you have access/permission to sp_executesql in the master database.

Yes acperkins. This is what I also think is the problem. What rights roles do I need to give to my user to use the sp_executesql. My user has a role of dbo. Thanks

Just that the user belongs to the Public role.
