Reading data to a table from a stored proc

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
This has me brain locked.  1. I've got a stored procedure.  2. It does a select with a couple joins.  I want to take the results of that stored proc and read them into some a table -- temp table would be ideal.  here's my (really tough) constraints... these really complicate things: 1. the stored proc uses dynamic SQL. As a consequence, I don't know the columns it's going to return (it's kind of the whole point of using it).  2. Since the stored proc uses dynamic SQL, it needs to use sp_executesql internally.    What won't work(i don't think?): 1. I can't create a function that returns a table and does a "return select * from....", since you can't (I don't think?) call a stored a stored proc in the return statement of a function 2. I can't just do an "Insert into #xyz exec .." because I can't pre-define the temp table (I think this is needed?). 3. I don't have a linked server. and i'd rather not. All of this runs local in the same instance of SqlServer, and will have to handle loads of volume (each hit will return a few million rows).  So (I think?) OPENQUERY  is out.  4. OPENROWSET is a possibility, I suppose, but again, everything is running locally. I think that goes through OLEDB (?) and I'm not sure that's even an option.    THOUGHTS???  HELP?? is it even possible?? Pl

Data Truncation issue with Enterprise Library Logging WriteLog stored Proc


Hi ,

I'm using Enterprise Library Logging  feature for logging. The issue i am facing is when the Logging message is too large(more than 65534 chars) ,complete data  is not logged in the Formatted Mesage column which is  of data Type nText .

I am able insert complete data if i try inserting from Sql insert Query from sql management studio. Do i need to add any attributes to data base listener or do i need to change the sp.

 Is there any way to increase the WriteLog stored proc param size in EnterpriseLibrary.Logging config file ? . Please let me know.


Thanks In Advance.

Reading Infopath Repeating Table data in .Net Workflow


Hello, i have an infopath for that has a repeating table on it that i am using for users to add comments. The table contains a couple of textboxes, one that automatically inserts the users name into it and the other for the user to enter their own comments. I want to be able to read the contents of the repeating table when a manual workflow is started against the form list in sharepoint so that i can email all the users who have left comments on the form.

I am struggling to find any info on reading repeating table data from an infopath form in a .net workflow. I have tried using an XPathNavigator to select the repeating table but it only displays the first comment in the table.

Can anyone provide any info on accomploshing this or point me to any articles that explain how to do this?

thanks a lot

Checkboxes from data table


I have a data table that contains some values for Certifications.  This table can be updated in a different part of my application.  On the web page I am currently working on, I would like to have check boxes appear for every value in the data table.  I have been struggling with this trying to use a For Each loop and I cannot get it to work for anything.  Any suggestions? 

I am using the following Razor syntax to obtain my data (I know this works because I can display it in a WebGrid):
