INSERT stored procedure in SQL Server



Generally speaking, in an application variables are used with stored procedures to insert records into a table.  Since we have covered how to create and assign variables, let's see how to incorporate this into a stored procedure.


Let's explain this code before we begin executing it:

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.spINSERT_dbo_Customer @FirstName varchar(25), @LastName varchar(25), 
@PhoneNumber varchar(15), @EmailAddress varchar(25), @Priority int, @CreateDate datetime


-- Object Name: dbo.spINSERT_dbo_Customer
-- Project: Sample code
-- Business Process: Sample code
-- Purpose: Insert a record into a table
-- Detailed Description: Insert a record into the dbo.Customer table
-- Database: Test
-- Dependent Objects: None
-- Called By: Ad-hoc
-- Upstream Systems: N\A
-- Downstream Systems: N\A
-- Rev | CMR | Date Modified | Developer  | Change Summary
-- 001 | N\A | 09.15.2011 | JKadlec | Original code


-- 1 - Declare variables

-- 2 - Initialize variables

-- 3 - Execute INSERT command
INSERT INTO [dbo].[Customer]

With the code explanation out of the way, let's execute the stored procedure:

EXECUTE [dbo].[spINSERT_dbo_Customer] 
   @FirstName = 'Tommy'
  ,@LastName = 'Crabber'
  ,@PhoneNumber = '333-333-3333'
  ,@EmailAddress = 'tommy@KingCrabber.com'
  ,@Priority = 1
  ,@CreateDate = '2011-09-15'
