I can execute a simple query with my openrowset, and even execute a stored proc which executes a simple query which returns a result set. But if the proc inserts rows into a table datatype, for example, the openrowset fails with a permissions
error message. I can connect in Studio and rExec the same stored proc. But there appears to be some permission issue when the OpenRowSet is used. I am surprised that an Openrowset has a permission issue given that the login I am using is
a sysadmin. I know there are some registry settings and ad hoc distributed queries has been set to 1. I notice a lot of people fight this, so I suspect the answers should be known.
