What is the syntax to merge together two different stored procedures (pulling similar data from 1 database(SQL)) with a function in (Visual Studio) in a batch application

Basically the output needs to look as follows in excel


header1    header2    header3   header4    header5    header6   header7   header8    header9
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx


Then have 2 lines blank and now show the second stored procedure underneath the information from the first stored procedure all in the same excel file

header1    header2    header3   header4    header5    header6   header7   header8    header9
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx
xxxxx           xxxxx        xxxxxx       xxxxx        xxxxxx        xxxx        xxxxx        xxxxx        xxxxxx

You cannot easily merge two SP results at the SQL Server level. The solution requires to create a table (or temp table) having the structure equal to the SP result and then insert SP results into this table by:

CREATE TABLE #YourTempTable ( ... )
GO
INSERT INTO #YourTempTable  EXEC YourSP1
INSERT INTO #YourTempTable  EXEC YourSP2

If you know the output structure you may do it this way.

Another solution uses OPENQUERY() or OPENROWSET() function which requires Linked server or additional connection. One example is e.g. here: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic856674-392-1.aspx

Much simpler solution seems to be to create two result sets by calling each SP separately and then populate the Excel output as needed.
