Have you named the job?

What is SQL 2008R2 - matches the version number in the error message - SSMS or the target server?

What kind of "script"? T-SQL? An SSIS package? An SSRS report subscription?

It came down to rexamining the SQL script that calls up the Stored Procedure, a tiny typo caused all this mess and embarrassed me. Thanks to all the experts who chimed in, all is well now.
