I have an access front end linked to some tables in a Sql Server 2005 back end.  I would like to create a stored procedure in Sql Server that appends all records from Table 1 into Table 2.  I then need to be able to execute that Stored Procedure from my Access front end.  My access front end is linked to Table 2.  I have never done this before and need some help with the sp syntax and how to call it.   Thanks.

hmmm... i created two stored procedures.  One to delete all the records from my temporary table and then one to append new data into it.    I am then calling them from a pass through separate pass through queries using 'exec' and the sp name.

I can delete records from the table ok... (So I am able to "exec" from the access side...)  however whenever I try to run the sp that appends new records I get the error shown.

If I run the sp from SQL, it runs no problem and quickly.
