Sql-server – How to call Stored Procedure in a View

database-designsql-servertsql

How would I call a Stored Procedure that returns data in a View? Is this even possible?

Best Solution

This construction is not allowed in SQL Server. An inline table-valued function can perform as a parameterized view, but is still not allowed to call an SP like this.

Here's some examples of using an SP and an inline TVF interchangeably - you'll see that the TVF is more flexible (it's basically more like a view than a function), so where an inline TVF can be used, they can be more re-eusable:

CREATE TABLE dbo.so916784 (
    num int
)
GO

INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (0)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (1)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (2)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (3)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (4)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (5)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (6)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (7)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (8)
INSERT INTO dbo.so916784 VALUES (9)
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.usp_so916784 @mod AS int
AS 
BEGIN
    SELECT  *
    FROM    dbo.so916784
    WHERE   num % @mod = 0
END
GO

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.tvf_so916784 (@mod AS int)
RETURNS TABLE
    AS
RETURN
    (
     SELECT *
     FROM   dbo.so916784
     WHERE  num % @mod = 0
    )
GO    

EXEC dbo.usp_so916784 3
EXEC dbo.usp_so916784 4

SELECT * FROM dbo.tvf_so916784(3)    
SELECT * FROM dbo.tvf_so916784(4)

DROP FUNCTION dbo.tvf_so916784
DROP PROCEDURE dbo.usp_so916784
DROP TABLE dbo.so916784
