    SQL Server 2000 no-op

    Can anyone tell me how to do a no-op or a wait in sql. I have tried various formats, and none seem to work. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Re: SQL Server 2000 no-op

    Hi,
    If you want a procedure to pause for a certain amount of time, you can use something like:
    WAITFOR DELAY '000:00:10'
    which will wait for 10 seconds.
