Inside a sp, I want to

1. Lock the Table so that no update until sp finished
2. What's the syntax of putting values into array in sp and then used by other sql statement.

In my case,

select arrJobItemID from OutboundQueueItems where JobID = 123 and IsLocked = 0 and AddToProcessing = 1

The result should be 0 to N numbers of JobItemID (arrobItemID)

Then, I want to update their fields, IsLock and Status, say,
update OutboundQueueItem set isLocked = 1,  Status = 2 where JobItemID = arrJobItemID

I don't know the sntax at sp.

1) You should use BEGIN TRAN, COMMIT TRAN and ROLLBACK to secure your record integrity in the SP.

2) there is no array concept in SQL Server.   You should use temporary tables or table variables.   however your example would suggest that you dont need to do this anyway.

update OutboundQueueItem set isLocked = 1,  Status = 2 where JobID = 123 and IsLocked = 0 and AddToProcessing = 1
