I am using LINQ with c# and pulling certain questions (say 25) from a table randomly and need to store these questions some where in database say in a temp table. Now on every next or previous button clicks I need records from this temp table. On finish button click i need to drop this table. I created one stored procedure, used select into statement and filled this temp table. Second stored procedure to pull the values from this sp but I got an error reading through this stored procedure. Any ideas how can we fix the following error or is there better way of dealing this issue

Error: Stored procedure returning integer instead of ISingleResult


I also tried creating a table variable as mentioned on this site http://odetocode.com/code/365.aspx  but I can't access this Table variable in other stored procedures on next previous clicks

Any ideas

And the error I am getting is

The return types for the following stored procedures could not be detected. Set the return type for each stored procedure in the Properties window.

Are you sure that this is the correct SP. I am not a SQL Guru but it looks like to be it creates a table and insert record into it?

After inserting recrods in temp table i want to pull records on subsequent requests from this table(don't know if thats possible). The reason i am doing this is becasue the sp below generates random records and after generating these records I need to save them some where to access them during the user's session quiz

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_GetQuestionsByChapterID]
      -- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
      @QuizID varchar(5000)
      
AS
BEGIN
      

    -- Insert statements for procedure here

select top 24 QuestionID,Question, Choices,CorrectAnswer,RelatedInfo,QuestionType, Section, row_number() over(order by QuestionNo) AS QuestionNo  from (
Select Q.QuestionID,Q.Question,Q.Choices,Q.CorrectAnswer,
Q.RelatedInfo,Q.QuestionType,Q.Section, newid() QuestionNo
FROM dbo.Questions Q
where  (CHARINDEX( ',' + convert(varchar,Q.Chapter) + ',', ',' + @QuizID + ',' ) > 0)
) x
END

Why don't you pull out the random questions and store in a session variable instead?
