I have a stored procedure that returns 80 columns, and 300 rows. I want to write a select that gets 2 of those columns. Something like
SELECT col1, col2 FROM EXEC MyStoredProc 'param1', 'param2'
When I used the above syntax I get the error:
"Invalid Column Name".
I know the easiest solution would be to change the stored procedure, but I didn't write it, and I can't change it.
Is there any way to do what I want?
I could make a temp table to put the results in, but because there are 80 columns so I would need to make an 80 column temp table just to get 2 columns. I wanted to avoid tracking down all the columns that are returned.
I tried using
WITH SprocResults AS .... as suggested by Mark, but I got 2 errors
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'EXEC'.
Incorrect syntax near ')'.
I tried declaring a table variable and I got the following error
Insert Error: Column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition
If I try
SELECT * FROM EXEC MyStoredProc 'param1', 'param2'
I get the error :
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'exec'.
