Exec Large Stored Procedure

Exec Large Stored Procedure

Exec Large Stored Procedure

I'm looking for a way to execute a Stored Procedure and return the rows fetched back to a message box. I have a scheduled SP that just runs on our server that goes out and pulls data from another system into a SQL table on one of our servers. I currently have the job (SP) scheduled to run every 30 minutes. everything works fine but I need a way for the user to force run the SP from an windows form and return the rows fetched. I don't need any data returned or there are no parameters at all, just need to execute the SP by pressing a button. the SP can take up to 5 mins to complete depending on the amount of records. I use SP's in my app currently but not this way. I'm trying to avoid timeout errors as well.

Any help would be appreciated
