How to create Temp table with SELECT * INTO tempTable FROM CTE Query


Question

I have a MS SQL CTE query from which I want to create a temporary table. I am not sure how to do it as it gives an Invalid Object name error.

Below is the whole query for reference

SELECT * INTO TEMPBLOCKEDDATES FROM 
;with Calendar as (
    select EventID, EventTitle, EventStartDate, EventEndDate, EventEnumDays,EventStartTime,EventEndTime, EventRecurring, EventStartDate as PlannedDate
    ,EventType from EventCalender
    where EventActive = 1 AND LanguageID =1 AND EventBlockDate = 1
    union all
    select EventID, EventTitle, EventStartDate, EventEndDate, EventEnumDays,EventStartTime,EventEndTime, EventRecurring, dateadd(dd, 1, PlannedDate)
    ,EventType from Calendar
    where EventRecurring = 1
        and dateadd(dd, 1, PlannedDate) <= EventEndDate 
)
select EventID, EventStartDate, EventEndDate, PlannedDate as [EventDates], Cast(PlannedDate As datetime) AS DT, Cast(EventStartTime As time) AS ST,Cast(EventEndTime As time) AS ET, EventTitle
,EventType from Calendar
where (PlannedDate >= GETDATE()) AND ',' + EventEnumDays + ',' like '%,' + cast(datepart(dw, PlannedDate) as char(1)) + ',%'
    or EventEnumDays is null
order by EventID, PlannedDate
option (maxrecursion 0)

I would appreciate a point in the right direction or if I can create a temporary table from this CTE query

Sample DDL

create table #Temp
(
    EventID int, 
    EventTitle Varchar(50), 
    EventStartDate DateTime, 
    EventEndDate DatetIme, 
    EventEnumDays int,
    EventStartTime Datetime,
    EventEndTime DateTime, 
    EventRecurring Bit, 
    EventType int
)

;WITH Calendar
AS (SELECT /*...*/)

Insert Into #Temp
Select EventID, EventStartDate, EventEndDate, PlannedDate as [EventDates], Cast(PlannedDate As datetime) AS DT, Cast(EventStartTime As time) AS ST,Cast(EventEndTime As time) AS ET, EventTitle
,EventType from Calendar
where (PlannedDate >= GETDATE()) AND ',' + EventEnumDays + ',' like '%,' + cast(datepart(dw, PlannedDate) as char(1)) + ',%'
    or EventEnumDays is null

Make sure that the table is deleted after use

If(OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#temp') Is Not Null)
Begin
    Drop Table #Temp
End

How to Use TempTable in Stored Procedure?

Here are the steps:

CREATE TEMP TABLE

-- CREATE TEMP TABLE 
Create Table #MyTempTable (
    EmployeeID int
);

INSERT TEMP SELECT DATA INTO TEMP TABLE

-- INSERT COMMON DATA
Insert Into #MyTempTable
Select EmployeeID from [EmployeeMaster] Where EmployeeID between 1 and 100

SELECT TEMP TABLE (You can now use this select query)

Select EmployeeID from #MyTempTable

FINAL STEP DROP THE TABLE

Drop Table #MyTempTable

I hope this will help. Simple and Clear :)

The SELECT ... INTO needs to be in the select from the CTE.

;WITH Calendar
     AS (SELECT /*... Rest of CTE definition removed for clarity*/)
SELECT EventID,
       EventStartDate,
       EventEndDate,
       PlannedDate                   AS [EventDates],
       Cast(PlannedDate AS DATETIME) AS DT,
       Cast(EventStartTime AS TIME)  AS ST,
       Cast(EventEndTime AS TIME)    AS ET,
       EventTitle,
       EventType
INTO TEMPBLOCKEDDATES /* <---- INTO goes here*/        
FROM   Calendar
WHERE  ( PlannedDate >= Getdate() )
       AND ',' + EventEnumDays + ',' LIKE '%,' + Cast(Datepart(dw, PlannedDate) AS CHAR(1)) + ',%'
        OR EventEnumDays IS NULL
ORDER  BY EventID,
          PlannedDate
OPTION (maxrecursion 0)

Select      Eventname, 
            count(Eventname) as 'Counts'
INTO        #TEMPTABLE                                                                                
FROM        tblevent
where       Eventname like 'A%'
Group by    Eventname
order by    count(Eventname)

Here by using the into clause the table is directly created

Here's one slight alteration to the answers of a query that creates the table upon execution (i.e. you don't have to create the table first):

SELECT * INTO #Temp
FROM (
select OptionNo, OptionName from Options where OptionActive = 1
) as X
