no you can't use a stored procedure in a select...

you can use  a function however...

can you post the stored proc maybe it can be converted into s function?

If you cannot convert it to a function as suggested by Lowfatspread, than the best you can do is resort to inserting the results of the stored procedure into a temporary table.  You can then take that temporary table and do all the aggregation you need.
