I have a table. I want to develop a report that requires an additional column in that table. The additional column comes from another table.
I am planning to create a stored procedure from that original table and then to add an extra column from the other table using join.
To be informed that the data is updated regularly so I cannot use SELECT INTO kind of query.
How can I do this?
Does any one have idea or better suggestion to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance.

in SQL Server you can make stored procedures act like Select statements. These stored procedures can be used when building reports. All you need to do is to make the last statement of the stored procedure the SELECT statement you wish to be used as your report. Like this:
CREATE PROCEDURE uspGetAllEmployees
AS
    SET NOCOUNT ON;
    SELECT e.LastName, e.FirstName, h.Department
    FROM vEmployeeDepartmentHistory h INNER JOIN Employee e ON e.EmployeeID = h.EmployeeID;
GO

It appears you are new to using stored procs in combination with SSRS.  The following article should shed some light on how to achieve this and should also contain some other useful info: Reporting On Data From Stored Procedures (part 1)

Don't hesitate to ask additional questions if still in doubt about something.

In comment #a39854353 you stated the following: "Thanks for guiding me the way for the solution."  That's a strong indication that the earlier posts have helped you to get to your solution, even if you "solved it using different way".  So those posts should get accepted as solution, not your own comment.  For that reason I'll object once more... (previous objection was because you closed with a C-grade without any further interaction with us, read through the links posted by Netminder to get an understanding why that's not a good idea)

Since, I am new to this portal, I didn't know about the grades A, B and C.
Now that I have read, I know what they mean.
My apologies.
Of course the link helped me to go in certain direction.
I'll definitely reward points for that. :)
