Hello,
I get this error: Invalid object name: 'dbo.temp_ETS'.

At the beginning of my stored procedure I have

IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.temp_ETS') IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE dbo.temp_ETS

I also have the same at the end of the query.

Do you know why this happens?

Hello,

there are few possibilities for this error:

1. Is there a table temp_ETS?
2. Is it in the dbo schema?
3. is the database case sensitive? i.e. maybe there is typo in the table name?

In order to test number 1 can you run this query:
select top 1 * from temp_ETS?

Open in new window

This  basically means that there is no table. Are you connected to proper database?

Can you browse database and confirm that the table is there?

 Can you try to create the new table with same name?

I had drop table after select statement in the query. When I removed it then it did work.
