Hello all,
I have a table like this:

ID - FKID - Title1 - Title2 - Value - ModifiedDate

Now I have to perform an INSERT in this table
where the fields Title1,Title2,Value come from
a stored procedure calling, and FKID is a
variable in the scope of a stored procedure
where this Insert is performed (ModifiedDate is GETUTCDATE()).

How can I perform this?

Thanks in advance.

The first thing that comes to mind - INSERT-EXEC would not work in your case because the columns in the insert part of the statement must exactly match the columns coming out of the EXEC part (the stored proc).

You could try open rowset. There are few examples here

If you have not already, you would need to enable Ad Hoc Distributed queries

sp_configure 'Show Advanced Options', 1
sp_configure 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries', 1

Another option is to insert the data from the stored proc into a temp table with columns that exactly match the stored procedure record set and then move that into your target table appending the additional columns as required.

Maybe the solution with a temporary table could be better.

I'll try.

yep..that would be recommended approach as otherwise you may have to use distributed query methods
