Can Function Return a Table in SQL Server 2008 or Can SQL Function return a table as Parameter

Sep 14, 2013

Here I will explain how SQL Server function will return table as parameter in SQL Server 2008 or can SQL function return a table as parameter in SQL Server 2008.    


Whether functions will return table as parameter or not?

For this question answer will be Yes functions will return table as parameter by using table valued parameters.  

Generally SQL Server functions will return only one parameter value if we want to return multiple values from function then we need to send multiple values in table format by using table valued functions.

Sample function which return table as parameter

CREATE FUNCTION testmultiplevalues
@UserId INT
returns table as
Select * from UserInformation WHERE UserId=@userId
We can call this function in our query like as shown below

SELECT * FROM dbo.testmultiplevalues(14)
If we run above query we will get output like as shown below
