Access ResultSet from Stored Procedure in Transact-SQL

Hello,

I have a stored procedure which returns a result set, similar to this:

CREATE PROCEDURE myproc AS
  SELECT * FROM mytable
GO

I can easily execute this procedure to get the result set back, and use it via ADO.  However, I don't seem to be able to do anything with it from Transact-SQL.

For example, if I do this:

EXEC myproc

is there some way I can assign a cursor to the result set returned by this command?

Thanks!

You can try something like this :

CREATE FUNCTION myfunc ()
RETURNS @mytab TABLE(col1 integer, col2 float)
AS
BEGIN
insert @mytab
select * from mytable
RETURN
END

then you can access the function as you would a table :
declare mycurs cursor for
select * from dbo.myfunc()

Perhaps a dumb question... are Functions persistent like stored procedures?
