I would like to output the results of DBCC PDW_SHOWEXECUTIONPLAN into a variable (or table, I'm not fussy!).

I know the PDW syntax is quite different when it comes to outputing results, which means everything I've tried has so far failed. I've seen some suggestions of inserting the results into a table, but I always get syntax errors

create table #1234 
    sql1 varchar(max)
with (distribution = round_robin)

insert into #1234

Parse error at line: 37, column: 2: Incorrect syntax near 'DBCC'.

  • I've found some samples here or here. Maybe this helps. – McNets Feb 5 '18 at 18:03
  • @McNets It looks like those examples are for SQL Server, using the same syntax as above that gives the error, unless I have missed something – Neil P Feb 6 '18 at 10:24
