Hi all

I'm doing some troubleshooting, and I'd like to insert the return set of a stored procedure into a temp table.   Since it's 75 columns, I'd rather not do a CREATE TABLE and define every column.

Is there a way to 'SELECT * INTO #tmp FROM exec sp_my_proc'?

SQL 2008R2.

Thanks in advance.

Or do it the following way:

Dump the resultset of the SP - directly to the temp table like:

SELECT * INTO #tp FROM (output sql of SP)

Define 'output SQL of SP'.  If you mean copy-paste the T-SQL in the SP, ok...

>INSERT INTO #tmp(col1, ..., colN)
I didn't want to define all 75 columns to pull this off, if possible.

Figured it out with this article.   I'll keep the question alive to solicit more advice, then close and award points for help
