Microsoft SQL Stored Procedure Update

To make sure that your Project Server has all the hotfixes that are contained in this hotfix package applied correctly, follow these steps after you apply the hotfix package:
  1. Run SQL Query Analyzer.
  2. In the database drop-down box, select the Project Server database.
  3. On the File menu, click Open.

    Locate the Websps.sql file (in the \..\Microsoft Project Server\Scripts.SQL folder), and then open the file.
  4. On the Query menu, click Execute.
  5. When the query is finished executing, you may quit SQL Query Analyzer.
Note Running the SQL query may take several minutes on some computers. You can confirm that the process has completed successfully by looking at the Stored Procedures on the server. If a Stored Procedure named "MSP_WEB_SP_BUS_GetProjPathsForIDs" exists, the query has run successfully.
