Compiling a Stored Proc with sp_executeSQL give missing object 'sys.sp_executeSQL Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have MS SQL Server 2008 Express and I have a sproc that uses sp_executeSQL.

    When I compile it, I get this error.  -

    missing object 'sys.sp_executeSQL'

    Any ideas on this. Is the SP only for the professional or can I add it into Express and I cant see it in the list of Sprocs under SYS.

    thanks Doriemik

  • What will happen if you call it without sys, e.g.

    execute sp_ExecuteSQL @Command, @ParametesDefinition, @Parameters ?

  • Hi,

    Have you got any progress?

    Based on my tests, I could run sys.sp_executeSQL in my stored procedure within SQL Server 2008 Express Edition. Could you please post your stored procedure script here?

    Here is a sample code that I use:

    CREATE PROC dbo.sp1
    EXEC sys.sp_executeSQL N'SELECT @@VERSION'

    Please let us know if you have any question.
