in reply to MS SQL Stored Procedure Syntax

No, what's he's trying to do here is EXEC[UTE] a stored procedure in MS SQL from the sound of it. The CALL syntax is Oracle's, you're getting your SQL dialects mixed up.

$sth = $dbh->prepare('EXEC sp_spaceused');

MSDN has an online transact SQL reference which I suggest you bookmark. Dealing with multiple dialects of the same language can get confusing no matter your experience level.
