I have a table (MyTable) with 3 columns (Id, A, B).
I want to update if column A has the same value as the parameter @A sent into the Stored Procedure.
How do i return the value of Id column after a row has been updated?

@A varchar(max)
@B varchar(max)
AS
if exists(SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE A=@A)
begin
	update MyTable SET B=@B WHERE A=@A
END

you should use the OUTPUT option, that will return all the IDs in case there exists many IDs with the same @A

DECLARE @Out table (Id int )

update MyTable
SET B=@B
OUTPUT inserted.ID into @Out
WHERE A=@A

IF @@Rowcount > 0
  SELECT ID from @Out
0
