something like this:

EXEC master.dbo.xp_readerrorlog 0, 1, 'Error: 823'  
 EXEC master.dbo.xp_readerrorlog 1, 1, 'Error: 823'

where the 2 EXEC have different parameters.

Not really but...you can insert them all in a table and do a select DISTINCT from that table or if you mean UNION ALL just drop the distinct like:

create table #t1 (c1 sysname, c2 sysname)
insert into #t1 EXEC master.dbo.xp_readerrorlog 0, 1, 'Error: 823'  
insert into #t1 EXEC master.dbo.xp_readerrorlog 1, 1, 'Error: 823'

select DISTINCT * from #t1
select * from #t1

Just make sure that your #t1 structure matches the SP record set.
