If you are used to installing your SQL objects into the database server using scripts and osql command, you may sometime encounter this message

 Msg 2812, Level 16, State 62, Line 1
 Could not find stored procedure 'S'.

 

The error message will be the first letter in the name of the sp/object that is failing. I had this issue and was about to pull out my hairs when, after a lot of searching, I found the solution! It seems that osql doesn't take Unicode as input (unless explicitly specified by -u switch, but I could not confirm that from the documentation at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa213088(SQL.80).aspx ). To get around this, open the objects for which the installation is failing using a text editor, go to File>Save As and save with Encoding as ANSI.

Hope this helps someone out there lost with this bizarre issue.
