I have created a scalar valued function which returns a single value and I execute it in a sproc. It works fine but I want to test it from a Query Window but I can't see how to do that.
When I type in "exec MyDatabase.dbo.fn_MyFunction" all I get in the results window is
"Command(s) completed successfully."
I would like to see the reults of the function. Thanks for any help.

If your function returned a VARCHAR(200) you would do something like:
DECLARE @Test VARCHAR(200)
EXEC @Test = MyDatabase.dbo.fn_MyFunction

PRINT @Test

Open in new window
