You can use a table variable, and it will stay in memory so long as it doesn't grow too large.

declare @table TABLE
(
fld1 int
)

insert into @table
select 1


select * from @table

You can also use a standard temp table - the data will stay in memory in the same circumstances as a TABLE variable...typically if there isn't a large amount of data.

Typically, you'd go for TABLE variable if the number of records is low....but they still reside in tempdb as a normal temp table does. However, TABLE variables do have limitations that a temp table doesn't - i.e. SELECT INTO... and INSERT...EXEC... statements cant be used to populate a table variable (sql 2005 you can INSERT..EXEC..). Also, you can't explicitly create indexes on TABLE variables which may be handy to improve performance depending on your exact scenario.

Ah yes...BUT sql server creates statistics for temp tables...not table variables....so there is a touch more overhead in creating them.
