triggering text output from T-SQL MS 2008

Hi,

   I am looking to see if I can output the read-in params to a text file or some sort of visible output from a T-SQL in MS 2008? I have a bunch of front end code that fires off one of the T-SQL stored procedures passing it some parameters. I dont know the front end procedures and can not hence locate the params they are passing into the T-SQL, hence, I am trying to get these values once received by the T-SQL stored procedure. How do I go about it?


thx

Huh?

Can't speak for the front-end, but regarding the back-end SQL, if your T-SQL calls a stored procedure or multi-line function, it can be edited to insert into a logging table.

If the T-SQL calls a view or another type of function, then it's not possible.

Sorry maybe my question is too simple but not clear i am guessing...


So here is what the SP looks like currently, call it mySP:

create procedure dbo.mySP
     @myparam1 int,
    @myparam2 varchar(200)

AS

DECLARE @myvar int


dbo.myFunction(myparam1, myparam2)


Now, here w/o knowing how the front end fires off this mySP, how can I get the myparam1 and myparam2 values?

Build a table to log it and dump the parameters each time it is run:

NewlyCreatedLogTable will need a field for each of your parameters.  I also added a date/time stamp field

MyParam1 int,
MyParam2 varchar(200),
EventDTM datetime


INSERT INTO NewlyCreatedLogTable (MyParam1, MyParam2, EventDTM)
SELECT @myparam1, @myparam2, GETDATE()

Based on the SP above, it will not successfully execute without having two parameters passed to it, such as...

exec mySP 42, 'banana'

Open in new window


So if by 'to get' you mean how can you view SP calls after the fact, you can manually log them based on the above post.   You can also run SQL Server Profiler and view the calls over a period of time, which also allows you to see any parameters passed.
