SQL server 2005 Express - Vista - Invalid object name '#spdbdesc'

P: n/a
I'm running Vista Business edition on 2005 Virtual PC.
Installed SQL Server 2005 Express latest download, with instance of
MSSQLSERVER and service accounts running under "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM".
Mixed mode authentication specified and sa password specified.
Used server manager to create user login with sysadmin role.
Login using windows authentication.

Run my application and database is created and populated with default
records.

However, my application executes the stored procedure "sp_helpdb"
which fails with "Invalid object name '#spdbdesc'" error.

If I run a query in server manager to execute same procedure logged
in
as the same person it runs ok and returns a table of information.

All this was working ok on XP with MSDE2000A previously.

I'm programming in .NET C# CLR2.0, any body know what's going wrong?

Perhaps the application is retrieving result set meta-data with SET FMTONLY
ON. This will result in an error since the #spdbdesc temp table does not
exist when the proc is executed with SET FMTONLY ON.

It's difficult to say without seeing your code. The snippet below works for
me with SQL Server Developer Edition under Vista. I would expect it to work
under SQL Express too.
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
SqlConnection connection =
new SqlConnection("Data Source=(local);Integrated Security=SSPI");
SqlCommand command =
new SqlCommand("sp_helpdb", connection);
command.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(command);
connection.Open();
da.Fill(dt);
connection.Close();

Hope this helps.

Sorry for that, it's the first time I've posted in many years...

If I don't specify SET FMTONLY ON/OFF in my code is there a default
state that I can rely on?
Is it the same for all SQL implementations?
If not, should I set it when opening the connection?

Many thanks

SET FMTONLY ON is usually submitted behind the scenes. ADO Classic
is notorious for doing this without being asked. ADO .Net is far more
well-behaved. But if you use CommandBehaviour.MetaDataOnly, there is a
SET FMTONLY sent to SQL Server.
Is it the same for all SQL implementations?
It's the client API that gets the idea to issue SET FMTONLY ON, so the
version of SQL Server should not matter.

It could certainly help if you could post your code.
