I have a link server setup for a remote MS SQL 2008 database.  I need to be able to execute a stored procedure from the remote database.  However,  I expand the link server for remote SQL, I can only see tables and views not programmability.

How do I need to do to setup to run store procedure?

You need to execute the stored procedure from a query.
You would do something like this

EXEC myLinkedServer.myDatabase.myScheme.myStoredProcedure
