I have a procedure, in which returns many results in the grid(over 1 million) and when I run it I get the out of memory error. I tried running the script with the "discard results after execution" box checked and not only was I able to process many more records, but the execution time was cut down from about an hour to 5 minutes. The checkbox I was referring to is located under Tools > Options > Query Results > SQL Server > Results to Grid > Discard results after execution. Is there an equivalent T-SQL command that can perform the same configuration? Having this box checked still processes the script, but doesn't produce any results in the grid. The script now runs so much faster and memory isn't getting used up by the massive amounts of rows that were previously being returned. Since this is will be run in production, i would like to include this option in the procedure/ script instead of selecting it from GUI.

once the proc is in production would you not want the results?

The error message (out of memory) is a client-side error. It's not SQL Server that's running out of memory, it's the client application (Management studio). There's no option in SQL to run a query and discard the results. SQL will send the results to the client app, what that client app does with the data is its business.

If you don't want the stored proc to return results, then remove the select that's returning results from the procedure.

Thank you for your replies, the issue is that this script is from a third party software, there is no way to remove the select, are you aware of any issues of > Options > Query Results > SQL Server > Results to Grid > Discard results after execution could cause if selected to run the query?

Other than the fact that you won't see any results, no.
