Hi All,

I have created a stored procedure with a int parameter - if user passes 0 it will stop a particular job and disable it (as per users requirement) and if user passes 1 it will enable that particular job.

I have done with SP and its working fine. The only issue is i have used Openrowset is my stored procedure to get a current status of that job:

declare @status int

set @status = (select last_run_outcome from openrowset

('SQLOLEDB','Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=yes','SET FMTONLY OFF EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_help_job') q

where name = 'test job')

By some reason i cannt use openrowset here.

Is anyone can help me getting a different method to capture a value from sp_help_job.

An early reply would be appreciated.

Thanks,
DKG

That's because sp_help_job is not a table. it's a stored procedure.
You can use linked server queries to retrieve job status from other servers as long as the login has administrative rights.
Lookup sysjobhistory in Books Online.

Thanks Adiga and Alex for your response, Adiga that script is good but not solving my purpose :-( .

Alex there must be some way to get a value from sp_help_job (variable or temp table). I am not very good in scripting that’s why struggling.

DKG i was wrong about sp_help_job it turns out it does work and i was able to get a status of a job.
See if running these commands help:
------------------------------
sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1
go
reconfigure with override
go
sp_configure 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries', 1
go
reconfigure with override
go

------------------------------

declare @runstatus int
set @runstatus = (select last_run_outcome
from
openrowset ('SQLOLEDB','Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=yes','SET FMTONLY OFF EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_help_job') q
where name = '')
print @runstatus

Alex you didn't understand...the code I have mentioned (posted by me initially) working perfectly fine. The only issue is that I cant use (means I don’t want to use) openrowset. That’s why I am looking for some other work around.

cheers!
