on sql-server-performance.com i read :
Do not create temporary tables from within a stored procedure that is invoked by the INSERT INTO EXECUTE statement. If you do, locks on the syscolumns, sysobjects, and sysindexes tables in the TEMPDB database will be created, blocking others from using the TEMPDB database, which can significantly affect performance.

I have a question does this negative effect also include simple SQL commands apart from stored procedures.
For example if from vb i execute a "Select into" temporary table. Will this have the same negative impact as with executing this from a stored procedure ?
