Returning a database object in stored procedures

Returning a database object in stored procedures

Post by Brandon Lill » Tue, 07 Dec 1999 04:00:00

Is there any way to resolve a database object from a name?

For example, in TJob, I have PJ_Enterprise which is actually the name
of another database.  I want to perform a join to tables in the
database PJ_Enterprise, such like:

  CASE PJ_Type
    WHEN 1 THEN RP_Name
    WHEN 2 THEN MC_Name
  END AS 'Name'
    LEFT OUTER JOIN PJ_Enterprise.dbo.TReport ON PJ_Key = RP_Key
    LEFT OUTER JOIN PJ_Enterprise.dbo.TElectronic_Claim ON PJ_Key =

Of course the query doesn't work because PJ_Enterprise is not a
database, but a field value.  Is there anyway to do something like
this?  I am no SQL wizard, and can see no way to perform this




1. stored procedure call returns object error

I am running SQL Server 7.0 SP3 database using DTS Designer version SQL
2000. My package runs perfectly when run from Enterprise manager.  However
when I set it up as a job, it runs for a second and then gives me the
following error:   DTSRun:  Executing...   DTSRun OnStart:
DTSStep_DTSActiveScriptTask_5   DTSRun OnFinish:
DTSStep_DTSActiveScriptTask_5   DTSRun OnStart:
DTSStep_DTSActiveScriptTask_1   DTSRun OnError:

DTSStep_DTSActiveScriptTask_1   DTSRun:  Package execution complete.
Process Exit Code 1.  The step failed.

In the package I have 2 activex scripts.  Each activex script instantiates a
dll which automatically connects to a database using ado.  In the first
Activex script, I activate the dll fine which automatically connects to the
database upon initializing.  I call a method (.RetrieveData) of the dll
which takes a SQLstring and then returns a recordset of data.  This all
works fine in the first Activex script of the package.  Now in the second
activex script, I instantiate the dll which again connects to the database
fine.   I call the same method (.RetrieveData), but in the SQLstring, this
time, I am sending a command to execute a stored procedure (This happens to
be Line 14 of the DTSStep_DTSActiveScriptTask_1.

It seems to me that there is a permissions issue, however I am unable to
determine why it is an issue.  The stored procedure explicitly grants
permission to the group - "public".

Any clues?

Many thanks in advance
