How do I do a SELECT * INTO [temp table] FROM [stored procedure]? Not FROM [Table] and without defining [temp table]?

Select all data from BusinessLine into tmpBusLine works fine.

select *

into tmpBusLine

from BusinessLine

I am trying the same, but using a stored procedure that returns data, is not quite the same.

select *

into tmpBusLine

from

exec getBusinessLineHistory '16 Mar 2009'

Output message:

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 2 Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'exec'.

I have read several examples of creating a temporary table with the same structure as the output stored procedure, which works fine, but it would be nice to not supply any columns.

If Ad Hoc Distributed queries are not enabled, then use the sp_configure code to enable it.

Have a look at this video to learn Stored Procedure in detail.

Try this code mentioned below:

CREATE PROCEDURE getBusinessLineHistory

AS BEGIN

SELECT * FROM sys1.databases

END

GO

sp_configure 'Show Advanced Options', 1

GO

RECONFIGURE

GO

sp_configure 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries', 1

GO

RECONFIGURE

GO

SELECT * INTO #MyTemporary_Table FROM OPENROWSET('SQLNCLI', 'Server=(local)\SQL2008;Trusted_Connection=yes;', 'EXEC getBusinessLineHistory')

SELECT * FROM #MyTemporary_Table

Or 

You can directly refer to OPENROWSET to insert results of a stored procedures into a temporary table.
