Apply results from a stored procedure to multiple rows

Hi,

I have a table that I have generated using code similar as below and I would like to perform a stored procedure on all the rows in the table.  What is the best way to approach this?
SELECT col1, col2, col3 
INTO Details 
FROM dbo.CalibrationPoints;
 
ALTER TABLE Details ADD col4 REAL NULL;
 
SELECT @count = count(*) FROM Details;
 
WHILE @count  > 0
BEGIN
    -- EXEC spGetError @error OUTPUT, @calibrationID, referenceValue;
    -- UPDATE Details SET  col4 = @error  where col1 = @count;
    
    SELECT @count = @count -1;
END;
 
DROP TABLE Details;

Hi,

You could use a cursor.

/peter
DECLARE yourcursor CURSOR FOR 
SELECT col1, col2, col3 FROM dbo.CalibrationPoints
 
OPEN yourcursor
 
FETCH NEXT FROM yourcursor INTO @col1, @col2, @col3
 
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0 BEGIN
    --EXEC spGetError @error OUTPUT, @calibrationID, referenceValue
    --UPDATE Details SET col4 = @error  where col1 = @count
 
    FETCH NEXT FROM yourcursor INTO @col1, @col2, @col3
END 
 
CLOSE yourcursor
DEALLOCATE yourcursor

Or with your code, picking up the value with select before using it with your sp. Declare @referenceValue and assign from proper column
SELECT col1, col2, col3 
INTO Details 
FROM dbo.CalibrationPoints;
 
ALTER TABLE Details ADD col4 REAL NULL;
 
SELECT @count = count(*) FROM Details;
 
WHILE @count  > 0
BEGIN
    select @referencValue=(?) from Details where col1 = @count
    -- EXEC spGetError @error OUTPUT, @calibrationID, @referenceValue;
    -- UPDATE Details SET  col4 = @error  where col1 = @count;
    
    SELECT @count = @count -1;
END;
 
DROP TABLE Details;
