The explanation is slightly incorrect. It states one will get the following error 5 times:
Server: Msg 8164, Level 16, State 1, Procedure procTestCounter, Line 12
An INSERT EXEC statement cannot be nested.
I cut the code out and executed it in QA and received:
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]COUNT field incorrect or syntax error
This was achieved on a Win2K3/SP1 cluster running SQL2K/SP3a.
Chalk another one up !
