I have a sql stored procedure that populates a table in MSSQL. I also have a second stored procedure that will issue the truncate table command on that same table after the user is done using that table. Am I correct in using:

executenonquery since it is issuing INSERT statements on the first sp

executescalar because no return results are expected on the second sp

If I call the second sp this way  object result = sqllCommand.ExecuteScalar();

what exactly would the value returned be?
