Sql server-t-sql: how do I declare table datatype and fetch a cursor into it?

Hi experts,
I am writing a stored procedure in sql server and instead of declaring so many local variable to hold the resultset from a cursor, I want to be able to declare a rowtype or tabletype datatype to hold the resultset. I am new to sql server but have worked with Oracle database.
Can someone please help alongwith code examples? Thanks

This question comes usually from Oracle to SQL Server newcomers. :-)

Unfortunately, There's no way to declare a %ROWTYPE variable in SQL Server. You need to declare as many variables as needed to hold values from a record.

Here's what "Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for Oracle" says:

• Variable declarations including %ROWTYPE on Oracle will be converted to a group of local variables on SQL Server.
