FIX: SQL Profiler Displays Incorrect TextData Value When You Run a Nested Stored Procedure by Using a Remote Procedure Call

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When you run a stored procedure that contains nested stored procedure calls by using a Remote Procedure Call (RPC), you may notice that the TextData column in the SQL Profiler trace shows incorrect values for the nested stored procedure call events. The TextData columns of the SP:Starting and the SP:Completed events of the nested stored procedure may have the same value as the TextData column for the RPC:Starting event.

Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains the files may also contain additional files.

To work around the problem, use the ObjectID column in the SQL Profiler trace to identify the stored procedure that was called instead of the TextData column.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.

Steps to Reproduce the Behavior

  1. Start SQL Query Analyzer, and then connect to a server that is running SQL Server 2000.
  2. Run the following Transact-SQL statement:
    Use NorthwindGoCreate Procedure [dbo].[sp_InnerRepeatedTextData]AsBeginSelect  1EndGoCreate Procedure [dbo].[sp_OuterRepeatedTextData]AsBeginExec sp_InnerRepeatedTextDataEndGo
  3. Create a new SQL Profiler trace. To do so, follow these steps:
    1. Start SQL Profiler.
    2. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Trace.
    3. In the Connect to SQL Server dialog box, type the SQL Server name and the authentication details, and then click OK.
    4. In the Trace Properties dialog box, click the Events tab.
    5. Click to select Stored Procedures in the Available event classes: list box, and then click Add.
    6. Click the Data Columns tab, click ObjectID in the Unselected data: list box, and then click Add.
    7. Click Run.
  4. In SQL Query Analyzer, run the following Transact-SQL statement on the Northwind database:
    {call sp_OuterRepeatedTextData}
  5. In SQL Profiler, on the File menu, click Stop Trace.
  6. In the profiler, view the trace events that correspond to the RPC:Starting, the SP:Starting, and the SP:Completed event class.

    You may notice that the TextData value is the same for the RPC:Starting, the SP:Starting, and the SP:Completed event, regardless of the stored procedure that is called.
