Entity Framework no columns when mapping stored procedure

Recently I had the problem that I wanted to map a stored procedure with the Entity Framework. As soon as I clicked on "Get column information" no columns showed up despite I knew that the stored procedure returns a table with some columns.

After some research I found out that in some circumstances it is necessary to add the following two statements at the beginning of the stored procedure:

SET NOCOUNT OFF;
SET FMTONLY OFF;

After that everything worked as expected.
