I have some massive Stored Procs that create temp tables by the 10's.  What is the best way to ensure those are all clean up in a timely manner with in the proc?

We are having resouces issues in the SQL 2000 databases and my job is to find a way to tweak it, but for I go out on the limb and say  - Move 2008.

Thanks

If you want to clean the temp tables up in the stored procedure that is creating them, you need to execute a DROP TABLE #YourTempTableName for each temp table created at the end of the stored procedure.

Most of the table are dropped found a few that were.

If a proc is created 10 temp tables, how resource intense are they, some are dropped right way some are queried against later on in the procedures.  Some with as many fields a 30 and 100's of records.
