SQL Server Syntax

Hello,

I have the Stored proc below that runs successfully. When I try to insert the data from Stored proc into the permanent table DNFC_Dashboard_Detail, it gives me the error below:

Msg 8164, Level 16, State 1, Procedure DNFC_Dashboard_Details, Line 90

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[DNFC_Dashboard_Details_Insert]

SELECT

Then you would just use
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.DNFC_Dashboard_Details
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON;

--Insert data into Table
INSERT INTO DNFC_Dashboard_Detail
EXEC DNFC_Dashboard_Details_Insert

---- Select Table

SELECT *
FROM DNFC_Dashboard_Detail

SET NOCOUNT OFF;
GO

You need to get the results from the EXEC first and then parameterize them for insert into the insert statement. Break up the steps first.

How can I do that? Never done this before...

This statement is the problem:
--Insert data into Table
INSERT INTO DNFC_Dashboard_Detail
EXEC DNFC_Dashboard_Details


If you look at the name of the proc that this is in, you are trying to call a PROCEDURE that inserts into the table INSIDE the same procedure you call. This is the nesting that the error message is referring to.

I need to see both procedures so that I can tell you how to get the results from the exec and order them for the insert.

I do not have 2 procedures. The above proc run and grabs data; the data needs to be inserted into the table - DNFC_Dashboard_Detail

DBAduck - Ben MillerPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Your problem stems from doing an INSERT INTO with an EXEC that is the procname that the INSERT EXEC is in.

Like I said above, you cannot do an
--Insert data into Table
INSERT INTO DNFC_Dashboard_Detail
EXEC DNFC_Dashboard_Details

When this statement is inside the DNFC_Dashboard_Details procedure because it is kind of like a recursive statement and is not supported to do.

You must do something to duplicate the proc DNFC_Dashboard_Details to another proc and then use that one to insert into the table.

Does that make sense?
