Why does the table have to be created on the fly? You know the output of the proc already, so create the temp table using that basis.

If you say you want one routine for all procs, you're being lazy. Create routines for each proc that needs this.

to capture the results form a stored procedure, the table must exist, with all the columns defined;


then you can do something like this:
  IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sysobjects WHERE id = OBJECT_ID(N'WHO_DATA') AND xtype in (N'U'))  
CREATE TABLE WHO_DATA (
[WHORESULTSID] INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
[SPID] CHAR (5) NULL,
[INSERTDT] DATETIME NULL DEFAULT(GETDATE()),
[STATUS] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[LOGIN] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[HOSTNAME] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[BLKBY] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[DBNAME] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[COMMAND] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[CPUTIME] INT NULL,
[DISKIO] INT NULL,
[LASTBATCH] VARCHAR(30) NULL,
[PROGRAMNAME] VARCHAR(200) NULL,
[SPIDINT] INT NULL,
[REQUESTID] INT NULL
)
--table exists, insert some data
INSERT INTO WHO_DATA(SPID,Status,Login,HostName,BlkBy,DBName,Command,CPUTime,DiskIO,LastBatch,ProgramName,SPIDINT,REQUESTID)
EXEC sp_who2

there's a bit of a work around you can try by using openrowset:, it tends to be a LOT slower, but it works:
--database name required
SELECT *
INTO #tmp
FROM OPENROWSET( 'SQLNCLI',
'Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=yes;',
'SET FMTONLY OFF; SET NOCOUNT ON; exec master.sys.sp_who'
)

Thanks. I am not a developer. I am just trying to come up a solution based on the requirement. I am sure we should go and optimize our queries. This is for a report. You have a sproc to generate report, if you have to query the output of the sproc how would you do that? I would still like to know if the method which i stated is possible or not.

This whole thing just sounds like a monster kludge in the making. I see no reason for the dynamic sql at all and creating a generic proc to return data into an "on the fly" type of temp table so you can query it sounds like the process needs a lot of help. Why does a report need to take the results of a proc and then only get some of the rows? Why not change the original proc to return the data that you need?

To directly answer your question, no you can't do this like you presented.

I don't think it's possible. Usually a sproc has a known result set, even for a report, so you would have the values being returned.

It should be noted that using this technique requires us to enable Ad Hoc Distributed Queries. The option is disabled by default.

-- view your settings
EXEC sys.sp_configure
@configname = 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries';
