I created a stored procedure with the command below. I want this stored procedure to execute a dtsx package using xp_cmdshell. The procedure was successfully created but when i try to run it the query just runs, never finishes. The dtsx package works, i've used it many times using xp_cmdshell, so i figured it would work through a SP so that i can call it from an application. Here is how i'm calling it

use Forensicon_Max105
execute uspWorkTick

I have never used SPs before so please be clear when offering suggestions or questions.

Thank you.

Try changing line 35 :) :
 
declare @sql nvarchar(1000)
set @sql='exec xp_cmdshell ''dtexec /f'+' "'+@Path+'"'''
select @sql
exec sp_executesql @sql
