When you run an encrypted stored procedure that runs a dynamic Transact-SQL statement, you may notice that the TextData column of the SP:StmtStarting event and the SP:StmtCompleted event in the SQL Profiler tool displays the dynamic Transact-SQL statement.

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


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section of this article.This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.


Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Start the SQL Query Analyzer, and then connect to the computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server.
  2. Run the following Transact-SQL statement to create the sp_MytestencryptionWithExec and the sp_MytestencryptionNoExec stored procedures:
    use northwind
    drop proc sp_MytestencryptionWithExec
    CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_MytestencryptionWithExec]
    DECLARE @MySQL varchar(100)
    -- SET @MySQL = 'select @@version'
    -- EXEC(@MySql)
    EXEC('select @@version')
    drop proc sp_MytestencryptionNoExec
    CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_MytestencryptionNoExec]
    DECLARE @MySQL varchar(100)
    select @@version
    Note The sp_MytestencryptionWithExec stored procedure has a dynamic Transact-SQL statement. The sp_MytestencryptionNoExec stored procedure does not have any dynamic Transact-SQL statement.
  3. Start SQL Profiler to capture the SP:StmtStarting event and the SP:StmtCompleted event. To do this, 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, provide the authentication information to connect to the computer that is running SQL Server, and then click OK.
    4. In the Trace Properties dialog box, click the Events tab.
    5. In the Available event classes list, expand Stored Procedures.
    6. Under Stored Procedures, expand SP:StmtCompleted, and then click Add. Similarly add the SP:StmtStarting event.
    7. Click Run.
  4. Run the following Transact-SQL statement in the Query Analyzer:
    Use northwind
    Exec sp_MytestencryptionWithExec
    Exec sp_MytestencryptionNoExec
  5. In SQL Profiler, click Stop Trace on the File menu.

    Note You may notice that the TextData column of the SP:StmtStarting and the SP:StmtCompleted events displays the dynamic Transact-SQL statement although the stored procedure sp_MytestencryptionWithExec is encrypted.
