I don't want to use a temp table. I want the information from the store procedure to go to a table I have created. The store procedure only generates 5 columns but I have added a date column and another column that requires update from time to time. So want am trying to do is to make the stored procedure to fill in the date column with a getdate()/date and time of when the stored procedure was ran and update the other column with the new information entered from the application

If you do a INSERT INTO table_name EXEC stored_procedure_name then that requires the same columns and data types, and you cannot do an 'EXEC stored_procedure_name, GETDATE() as other_name' with other columns.

The only way around it is to insert into a temp table, then INSERT from there to your table_name including other columns.

Or manipulate your stored procedure to include everything you wish to INSERT.
