We're trying to make an SSIS package where it'll launch a stored procedure and capture the contents in a flat file. This will have to run every night, and the new file should overwrite the existing file.

This wouldn't normally be a problem, as we just plug in the query and it runs, but this time everything was complicated enough that we chose to approach it with a stored procedure employing temporary tables. How can I go about using this in a DTS package? I tried going the normal route with the Wizard and then plugging in EXEC BlahBlah.dbo... It did not care for that:

The Statement could not be parsed. Additional information: Invalid object name '#DestinyDistHS'. (Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0)

Can anyone guide me in the right direction here?


  • Sorry -- old terminology floating around the workplace. We are working with SSIS. I'm picking this up as I go so I just ended up using the term I heard in the office.

    in your stored procedure try SET FMTONLY OFF;SET NOCOUNT ON. Also at the package level - set the package property to use Delayed validation = TRUE. That should help you.

  • Okay. I did everything listed. I changed ValidateExternalMetadata to False (did not see a direct reference to Delayed Validation)... Everything looked like it was going to work, but when I tried hitting okay to get out of the OLE DB Source Editor, I got a Microsoft Visual Studio Error: Eror at Data Flow Task... Again, "Invalid Object Name '#Destiny...'"

  • Are you defining the temp table inline or with a SELECT INTO statement? If you're using SELECT INTO, try doing a CREATE/INSERT setup instead. The problem is that SSIS is trying to parse the table and since it can't find a schema it can't build metadata. @Kin's suggestion to delay validataion will work but only once you have metadata actually assigned the first time 'round, in design mode.

  • Oh! Go to the properties for the Data Flow Task itself to set Delay Validation to true.
