I'm attempting to load the result set from the sa_disk_free_space system stored procedure so that I can manipulate it and present it in MB. Below is what I have so far.

BEGIN 
    DECLARE LOCAL TEMPORARY TABLE varMoveToSQL 
        (mydbspace_name nvarchar(20), myfree_space int, mytotal_space int);

    WITH Dataset (dbspace_name,free_space,total_space) AS (
                EXEC  sa_disk_free_space
                )

    INSERT INTO varMoveToSQL SELECT * FROM Dataset;

    SELECT * FROM varMoveToSQL;
END

It is way easier with SQL Anywhere. You can simply use a stored procedure in the FROM clause of a SELECT or INSERT, no need to store the procedure's result set in a temporary table.

Just something like "select * from my_proc(params) sp where..."

...for example:

SELECT *
  FROM sa_disk_free_space();

dbspace_name,free_space,total_space 'system',331786121216,979443380224 'translog',331786121216,979443380224 'temporary',331786121216,979443380224

If you really want a separate local temporary table...

SELECT *
  INTO #varMoveToSQL
  FROM sa_disk_free_space();

SELECT * FROM #varMoveToSQL;

dbspace_name,free_space,total_space 'system',331776749568,979443380224 'translog',331776749568,979443380224 'temporary',331776749568,979443380224
