Declare @ID as int  
select @ID = PRJG_RecordID From ProjectGroup 
where PRJG_ProjectID ='4360'

EXEC  [dbo].[Ideal_ProjectCostReport]
            @ParentProjectRecordID = @ID

You can not execute stored procedure like this.  You have to declare one more variable accepting the value.
like @PRJG_ProjectID


EXEC      [dbo].[Ideal_ProjectCostReport]
             @ParentProjectRecordID = <PRJG_RecordID> any int value,
             @PRJG_ProjectID ='4360'

if table ProjectGroup is using in this SP.

can you share your stored procedure script we can suggest you.

A scalar function can be set to a single value..
SELECT @something = dbo.fn_whatever('Sally')

If by 'Executing a SP' you mean pass a variable as a parameter, then the above is correct.
If by 'Executing a SP' you mean execute the SP and set the resulting single value into a parameter, then SP's return a set, so you'll have to handle it as such..

CREATE TABLE #tmp (no int) 

INSERT INTO #tmp (no) 
exec sp_whatever ('Sally')  -- I'm a little fuzzy on what your needs are here

SELECT @no = no FROM #tmp WHERE-- ??
