Hello developers,
I have a stored procedure that has output parameter and i was wondering if their is a better way to store the returned values in a variable because i need to assign them to an object. the procedure also takes in two parameters and returns 3 values.

can i have a method that takes in 2 arguments and returns me the values

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetPurchaseUnitINDefaultUnit]
-- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
@quantity as decimal(20,4),
@PurchaseUnitID as int,
@TranslatedQuantity as decimal(20,4) output,
@DefaultUnitID as int output,
@DefaultUnitDesc as varchar(50) output

Solution 1

If you use a SELECT statement inside the stored procedure, the result is returned to the calling program. This way the result is handled as a result set, not as output parameters.

For example have a look at[^]

Solution 2

If you are returning more than one value, then you have three options only:
1) Use out parameters as you are doing.
2) Return values via a SELECT statement.
3) Convert your values to VARCHAR and concatenate them together.

I wouldn't use the last one.
