To the best of my knowledge this is not possible.  I really wish it was as there are a number of occasions where I'd use it myself.

I think that the only thing you can do it put the results of the SP into a temporary table and use that in your SELECT query.

INSERT INTO #myTable exec sp_GetMyResults

If you are using MS SQL Server 2000, try converting your stored procedure to user-defined function. Then you will be able to use it in a select statement.

Ex. select * from fn_YourFunction(0, 'Hello')

Or else you need to do like the comment above from ColinSnelling.

Hope it helps,

The other suggestion is to use the stored procedure to return the record set by passing parameters to it.
