Trying to use an insert into statement with a stored procedure plus an additional variable

My code currently is writing to a table in a stored procedure.  The stored procedure should call another stored procedure that then makes a single line of output, however the current stored procedure draws additional data not used in the second stored procedure which I also want to include in the write.

Below is a code snippet, here I use the insert into statement with the stored procedure.  This part works, however I wish to add on to the end of that line a single variable value.  

Any help on how to get that variable put on the end would help.  Note that I can't merely use an update to do it because there isn't a uid, or rather, the uid would be this variable I'm trying to add.

Thanks.
insert into tat_output exec sp_findtesttatcert @mindate,@maxdate,@currenttime,@currentdate,@orderdet,@ordertest,@testsite,@orderloc,@orderphy,@orderpri,@timedatetype,@pattype,@clientcode

what is the primary key of tat_output?  if it is an identity column you could use SCOPE_IDENTITY() to get the PK of the row you just added, then update it.

The problem I'm having here is that a unique primary key isn't generated from the stored procedure that writes most of the data into the tat_output table.  This is because the queries run on that could return a lot of identical results.  There is nothing unique coming from the stored procedure into Tat_output.  Could I use something like an autonumber column with scope_identity() ?

Every table should have a primary key, even if it is just a surrogate key that is not real business data.  

And yes, an Autonumber/Identity column would solve your problem.
