Written some SQL which grabs data into a Temp table then INSERTS into a remote server using Linked Server. Works every time on 10 instances.

As soon as I convert into a STORED PROC it executes without an error but does nothing. EXEC <proc_name>.

Any ideas?

Code has no parameters or variables. Just creates a Temp tbl, then grabs data from catalogs into the Temp tbl, then select from temp tbl while INSERT into table on management instance. Always works.

Howe ever when I add CREATE PROC <name> as and then EXEC <name> is does not fail but the proc does nothing as in no values are created. What am I missing about converting into a PROC that would impact its behaviour if executed just as T-SQL?


FROM tempdb.dbo.sysobjects
WHERE id = OBJECT_ID(N'[tempdb].[dbo].[ReplStats]')
DROP TABLE [tempdb].[dbo].[tbl]

CREATE TABLE [tempdb].[dbo].[tbl](
[col1] [nvarchar.....
