Using Sql Server 2012

I am using the following code where ever I am creating a temp table #wt3 in my stored proc code. But when I hit execute to create this SP I get the error mentioned below, at the second instance of creating this temp table:

IF (OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#wt3')) IS NOT NULL
			DROP TABLE #wt3	
SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF
 SELECT TOP 0 * INTO #wt3 FROM db_template.dbo.DimTime

Open in new window


Error:
Msg 2714, Level 16, State 1, Procedure rollup_scores, Line 1463
There is already an object named '#wt3' in the database.

What am I missing?

Thank you.

Hmm... works on my SQL 2012 box every time.  Just for kicks and giggles, remove the extra parentheses marks, and add the begin and end, and see if that makes a difference.
IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#wt3') IS NOT NULL
   begin
   DROP TABLE #wt3	
   end

CREATE TABLE #wt3 (id int) 
INSERT INTO #wt3 (id) VALUES (7)
SELECT * FROM #wt3

Open in new window

Any chance this error is occuring somewhere else (Line 1463 is a long ways down)?
Show us the entire SQL code.

Also, I wonder if there is a SET statement somewhere that controls this behavior.

It wasn't working with Create SP, but worked with Alter sP.
What I did was named my temp table as #wt3_p while i was creating the SP.
Then went back in and removed the _p, so now I am doing an Atler SP with temp table named as #wt3 and it worked.

I guess there is some bug in create SP.
