Dear all DB expertist,

right now we have a system workflow monitoring tools called control-M, all our housekeeping job is running in a store procedure and we can see the the exeception flow control is not very good.

How can we improve the execeptional flow control the return as much information as possible when the SP failed to the monitoring system ? the Control-M.

All solution is welcome and I will try it one by one.

I'm a big fan of TRY/CATCH blocks in newer versions of SQL Server. You can nest them if you want, and they provide excellent control over the flow of your T-SQL code when there's the possibility of an error.

Once you can control the flow sufficiently, you can use the RAISERROR keyword (note the mis-spelling - it's on purpose) to throw information of interest back to the control process that's calling the SP in the first place. Those details and the associated messages or codes can be logged and reported on at the application level.

Check out the link above for some examples of both RAISERROR and TRY/CATCH blocks to capture errors and report them.
