I have a stored proc that calls other store procs which call other stored procs... When I call MY stored proc I want to supress the result set of the stored procs I'm calling... For example.. say my proc is called 'one'.. Stored proc 'one' calls stored proc 'two" and stored proc "two" calls stored proc"three"... I do not want to see the results of stored proc three.. I just want to run it becuase it does some things but it also has select statements in it and I dont want to see the select statements from "three".. My DBA wants me to do this in "one" NOT and I repeat.. He does NOT want me to put any code in "three".. Is there a way to supress the result of "three" from my stored proc "one"???

no, that is not possible.

the only thing you can do is supress empty recordsets.

Short answer: No

If "three" has select statements that return datasets, there is no way to suppress those

I'd suggest to your DBA that, in order to reduce duplicity of code, you simply add an optional bit parameter called "HideResults" that defaults to 0 and wrap around each select statement "if @HideResults = 0 ..."

Create a stored proc Three_A which calls Three.

Three_A could have a parameter that says whether or not you want to suppress results.  If suppress then don't return them from Three_A, if not, then return results from Three_A.
