SELECT Stored Procedure in SQL Server Example

In this SQL Server example, we will show you how to use the SELECT Statement inside the Stored procedure. I suggest you refer Introduction to Stored Procedures in SQL Server article to know the basics.

-- Example for SELECT Statement Inside the SQL Stored Procedure
USE [SQL Tutorial]
GO

IF OBJECT_ID ( 'SelectStoredProcedureFirstExample', 'P' ) IS NOT NULL   
    DROP PROCEDURE SelectStoredProcedureFirstExample;  
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE SelectStoredProcedureFirstExample
AS
BEGIN
      SET NOCOUNT ON;
      SELECT [FirstName] + ' ' + [LastName] AS [Full Name]
            ,[Education]
            ,[Occupation]
            ,[YearlyIncome]
            ,[Sales]
            ,[HireDate]
      FROM [Employee]
END
GO

From the above code snippet, you can see that we are concatenating the First name and second name as Full Name. We are using the SQL SPACE function to provide the space between the First name and last name
