I am running a system that calls SQL from vb6.

I get following error message...
Msg 2812, Level 16, State 62, Line 1
Could not find stored procedure '#'.

The code is below. Could someone possibly give me an idea as to why this error is happening?
USE [rpr_DEV]
/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[spITS_ShippingReportsShippingServiceDetail]    Script Date: 03/10/2014 11:19:50 ******/

>Could not find stored procedure '#'.
this message is something where I only know of the scenario with dynamic sql (EXEC) which is missing the brackets when calling it.
looking at your code, the only place where this could happen is inside this one:
EXEC [MACShip9].[macship].[dbo].MacShipToRpr

can you check that stored proc, and also show how you actually call the stored procedure?

My colleague tells me he has sometimes run into problems when object names contain an underscore ("_") and suggests that you surround your object names with square brackets ("[" and "]").

Does that help?
