Why this error comes, Maximum stored procedure, function, trigger, or view nesting level exceeded (limit 32).

I have an cursor, it always gave nested errors where as we have on 5 subjects for B.Com and semester 1

alter procedure step1
@course varchar(200),
@semester int
as
begin
declare @tsubjectcode varchar(200)
declare @tcredits varchar(200)
declare db_step1 cursor for
select distinct subjectcode,credits from allsubjects
where course=@course and semester=@semester
order by 1
open db_step1
fetch next from db_step1 into @tsubjectcode,@tcredits
while @@fetch_status=0
begin
      select @tsubjectcode,@tcredits
fetch next from db_step1 into @tsubjectcode,@tcredits
end
close db_step1
deallocate db_step1
end

exec step1 'B.Com',1

The reason is that you have exec step1 'B.Com', 1 in a line that will be part of the stored procedure.

So when you execute step1 you will be executing it and it will execute itself again while in the proc.

You need to put a GO between the end and the exec

alter procedure step1
@course varchar(200),
@semester int
as
begin
declare @tsubjectcode varchar(200)
declare @tcredits varchar(200)
declare db_step1 cursor for 
select distinct subjectcode,credits from allsubjects 
where course=@course and semester=@semester
order by 1
open db_step1
fetch next from db_step1 into @tsubjectcode,@tcredits
while @@fetch_status=0
begin
      select @tsubjectcode,@tcredits
fetch next from db_step1 into @tsubjectcode,@tcredits
end
close db_step1
deallocate db_step1
end 

GO

exec step1 'B.Com',1

thats for nesting
Maximum stored procedure, function, trigger, or view nesting level exceeded (limit 32).

this means that something that you are drawing information from in your stored procedure is more than 32  nested levels deep. Its obvoiusly not in the code above. You'll have to dig to find that elsewhere in one of your other functions thats your using in this SP.
