raiserror allows you to send an error to the code that invoked the procedure
it behaves just as if sql server itself rasied an error
you should use it if you want to have special tailored errors in your application, for example, if you stored procedure receives input parameters, but it was given an out of range value (you only allow 1-10 and you got 11 for example) so you can use raiserror to notify the caller that the passed in value is illegal
