osql is outdated. Use sqlcmd instead.

It makes no sense to define and assign the procs result value, when you don't return it.

Why do you want to call a procedure that way? Why not directly calling it with an T-SQL task?

Yes just for executing the stored procedure you dont need SQLCMD or OSQL if you are going to schedule the SP in SQL agent job.

Create a SQL agent job with TSQL step and only single line of code will be fine.

execute <databasename>.<schemaName>.usr_sp_reviewamounts
