MSSQL 2014 Returning GUID on Insert via Stored Procedure

I was wondering what i need to do to get the just inserted GUID from a new Record.
My table has a guid column which has a default value of NewID() . Below is my stored
Procedure. If i can insert just fine but dont get the GUID back

CREATE PROCEDURE tbl_Address_INS
(
	@Guid uniqueidentifier OUTPUT,
	@Version                            smallint,
	@CustomerId                         varchar(15),
	@CustomerName                       nchar(32),
	@CreatedOn                          datetime,
	@CreatedBy                          nchar(10)
)
AS
	INSERT INTO dbo.tbl_Address	(
		Version,
		CustomerId,
		CustomerName,
		CreatedOn,
		CreatedBy)
	VALUES	
	(
		@Version,
		@CustomerId,
		@CustomerName,
		@CreatedOn,
		@CreatedBy
	)

You can get the GUID back by using OUTPUT clause in your SP and this will work when you're inserting multiple records also.
so you will add the command below after your insert but which column name is the actual GUID as I can't see CustomerId varchar(15) holding GUID data.
......
OUTPUT inserted.Guid
......

Something like in this example:


CREATE TABLE dbo.TestTable (
    ColGuid uniqueidentifier NOT NULL DEFAULT NewSequentialID(),
    Col2    int              NOT NULL
)
GO

DECLARE @op TABLE (ColGuid uniqueidentifier)

INSERT INTO dbo.TestTable (Col2)
OUTPUT inserted.ColGuid
INTO @op -- so this is where you put the inserted/generated GUID or GUIDs
VALUES (1)

SELECT * FROM @op -- then you output whether is one or a bunch of them.

SELECT * FROM dbo.TestTable
GO

So based on your code it seems you are creating a temp table @op and then query @op to get the value ? Is there no way to directly return the  inserted.ColGuid

Not realy - is either you declare a variable uniqueidentifier and SET that = NEWID() then insert the value from it then return it at the end OR like in example above that can deal with multiple INSERTed rows in one command.
There are some options where people used triggers(yak!) to PRINT the inserted value but I would never add a trigger on any table (in particular dealing with GUIDS - slowest Microsoft data type - well other than NTEXT) to slow down the insert.

Only problem is how to access the returned guid from a vb.net ExecuteNonQuery since it doesn't return
any queryResult only Output Parm

if you want to read the value from a .Net client. you would just use the ExecuteScalar method something like:
...
string sql = "INSERT INTO GuidTest(IntColumn) OUTPUT inserted.GuidColumn VALUES(1)";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(sql, conn);
Guid guid = (Guid)cmd.ExecuteScalar();
...

OR... you can fill a SqlDataReader to store the GUIDs and use it from there right?

You can use OUTPUT to return a result set from the stored proc (rather than as an OUTPUT parameter):

CREATE PROCEDURE tbl_Address_INS
(
      @Guid uniqueidentifier OUTPUT,
      @Version                            smallint,
      @CustomerId                         varchar(15),
      @CustomerName                       nchar(32),
      @CreatedOn                          datetime,
      @CreatedBy                          nchar(10)
)
AS
      INSERT INTO dbo.tbl_Address      (
            Version,
            CustomerId,
            CustomerName,
            CreatedOn,
            CreatedBy)
        OUTPUT INSERTED.guid
      VALUES      
      (
            @Version,
            @CustomerId,
            @CustomerName,
            @CreatedOn,
            @CreatedBy
      )
