Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Invalid Object in SQL 7.0

I write a stored procedure and it works fine. But when I do write a "select statement" as below:
"select * from sp_name"
I get an error message:
"Server: Msg 208, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
Invalid object name 'sp_name'.
Why does this happen?

I think the problem may be in the way the stored procedure is called. A SELECT statement can't be issued against a stored procedure. The SELECT statement should be inside the procedure, and you can call it from Query Analyzer like this:

EXEC sp_name
