I wanted to run a stored proc based on a the following condition

If

Select Count(*) from Table>0
Then
Exec StoredProc
Else Don't Exec

How do I do this? Please help!

IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM table)
EXEC StoredProc

---------------------------------------------
Nothing is impossible.
It is just a matter of time and money.

Let me clarify

If the count returns 0 -- I don't run the SP

If count>0 I run the sp

Table will always be there. SP runs when table has data. Doesn't run when table has no data.

Yes, that should work. I assume you call the SP from within another SP.

I added

(Select Count(*) from Table)>0 in the where clause and it seemed to have worked

The EXISTS function is faster.

The EXISTS function returns true if there is at least one row returned from the query. Using EXISTS will be faster than a count.
