I was trying to create a stored procedure listed below
where the primary key is  RecordNumber  and  identity is true

CREATE PROCEDURE DuplicateRegisterHeader(@RecordNumber varchar(10))
AS
   Begin
     INSERT INTO tRegisterHeader
     SELECT * FROM tRegisterHeader
     WHERE RecordNumber = 278844
   End

this is the returned error msg
Msg 8101, Level 16, State 1, Procedure DuplicateRegisterHeader, Line 4
An explicit value for the identity column in table 'tRegisterHeader' can only be specified when a column list is used and IDENTITY_INSERT is ON.

You'll need to explicitly list the columns you want to insert, and set IDENTITY_INSERT on, since you're specifying its value:


CREATE PROCEDURE DuplicateRegisterHeader (
    @RecordNumber varchar(10)
)
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON;
SET IDENTITY_INSERT tRegisterHeader ON
INSERT INTO tRegisterHeader ( RecordNumber, ...other_columns... )
SELECT @RecordNumber AS RecordNumber, ...other_columns...
FROM tRegisterHeader
WHERE
    RecordNumber = 278844
GO

I am re-opening this question to allow the author to re-evaluate as a valid solution was offered and they were unable to produce any.  Failing that an EE Moderator will review.
