Advanced SQL (programming) videos | SQL Programming Part 2 - Stored Procedure Parameters

Posted by Andrew Gould on 20 November 2012

Stored Procedures are extremely useful tools in SQL Server, and they become even more powerful when you use parameters to pass information to them. This video teaches you how to define a list of parameters for a stored procedure and how to call a parameterised procedure and pass information to it. You'll also learn how to create optional parameters with default values, how to handle NULLs passed to a procedure and, finally, how to use your procedure in other applications such as Reporting Services.

See our full range of SQL training resources, or test your knowledge of SQL with one of our SQL skills assessment tests.

When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.

Improving the quality of a video

To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:

Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
