BUG #: 363708 (SHILOH_BUGS)
Early implementations of the Merge Agent did not use the sp_executesql system stored procedure during the execution of statements that could be repeatedly run each time the Merge Agent ran. To improve the chances of re-using an existing plan (and to optimize Merge Agent execution), sp_executesql is implemented for statements that typically run each time the Merge Agent runs.
This fix implements sp_executesql in stored procedures that are run by the Merge Agent.
