  1. Hi There,

    Allow me to show my gratitude bloggers. You guys are like unicorns. Never seen but always spreading magic. Your content is yummy. So, satisfied.

    As per the following article, we have to encapsulate a SP if the setting ‘remote access’ is not enabled on the DB server (generally it is not recommended to activate this setting).
    An index is an optional structure associated with a table to have direct access to rows, which can be created to increase the performance of data retrieval. Index can be created on one or more columns of a table.
    normal way:
    Declare @id int = 1
    EXEC SQL01.TestDB.dbo.proc_test @id;
    Encapsulated way?
    EXEC(N’TestDB.dbo.proc_test’) AT [SQL01];

    Excellent tutorials – very easy to understand with all the details. I hope you will continue to provide more such tutorials.

    Thank you,
