I have a SQL query syntax and when i run it, it will return result table in SQL SERVER. What I want is to query using the result. Is that any solution?

Eg. The result returned is a table, and i wish to write select syntax base on the result.

If this is a stored procedure then you cannot access the result table

If it has no side effects, you can turn the SProc into a Table function, so that you can treat it like a table, i.e.

SELECT * FROM dbo.MyTableFunction()

If you query is something like

SELECT A,B,C from Table

You can requery the result using

SELECT * FROM
(
SELECT A,B,C from Table
) INNERTABLE
WHERE ....

i.e. put the whole thing in a subquery, give the subquery an alias (i.e. INNERTABLE) and treat it like any table
(which contains the columns of the inner SELECT)
