MSSQL: run stored proc with variable from select or list

I would like to create one statement if possible. To process the following:
EXEC addAccount @accountNo = '123456'
EXEC addAccount @accountNo = 'ABCDEF'
EXEC addAccount @accountNo = '123ABC'
EXEC addAccount @accountNo = 'ABC123'


Like this:
EXEC addAccount @accountNo = ('123456', 'ABCDEF', '123ABC', 'ABC'123')
or
EXEC addAccount @accountNo = (SELECT accountNo FROM accountList WHERE new = 1)

I cannot modify the stored procedure.

Is this even possible?

Not with doing 1 EXEC. Since you can't alter the stored procedure's parameters, you can't send it more than 1 at a time.

As far as automation or making it dynamic, you can do something like:

DECLARE @AcctNbr VARCHAR(30)   --set the datatype and length accordingly
DECLARE @SqlString NVARCHAR(Max)
DECLARE @ParamDef NVARCHAR(Max)

declare AcctList CURSOR FOR
SELECT accountNo FROM accountList WHERE new = 1

Open AcctList

 FETCH NEXT FROM AcctList INTO @AcctNbr
     WHILE @@FETCHSTATUS = 0
         BEGIN
                  Select @SqlString = N'EXEC addAccount @accountNo'
                            ,@ParamDef = N'@accountNo VARCHAR(30)'         --set the datatype and length accordingly
               
            EXECUTE sp_executeSQL @StrSql, @ParamDef, @accountNo = @AcctNbr


              FETCH NEXT FROM AcctList INTO @AcctNbr
         END

CLOSE AcctList
DEALLOCATE AcctList

You could create a table type and pass that as a variable.

CREATE TYPE dbo.IntList AS TABLE
(
   Value INT NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
);

Open in new window


Procedure:

CREATE PROCEDURE addAccount
(
   @AccountNoList IntList READONLY;
)
AS
...

Open in new window


Using Procedure:

DECLARE @AccountNoList IntList;

INSERT INTO @AccountNoList
SELECT accountNo FROM accountList WHERE new = 1

EXEC addAccount @AccountNoList = @AccountNoList

Open in new window
