I'm using the Northwind database  in sql server 2008.

-- Janet Leverling
UPDATE [Northwind].[dbo].[Employees]
SET [Title] = 'Lawyer'
WHERE [EmployeeID] = 3

-- Robert King
UPDATE [Northwind].[dbo].[Employees]
SET [Title] = 'Doctor'
WHERE [EmployeeID] = 7

I have two update statements like this.
When I run them individually they work fine.

I want to put these in a stored procedure, so when I run the stored procedure both records get updated.

Is there a syntax to combine both these statements into one statement?
