How to produce a result set in a procedure

How to produce a result set in a procedure

I found out that I can call an Oracle procedure from Microsft SQL Server using an OpenQuery function.

But in order to do this, the Oracle procedure must return a result set. I could not get it to work. I then tried to use a function, which did returned a value, but Oracle would let me put any insert statements in a function.

So basically, I need to insert into a table and return a value. A procedure can insert and a function can return a value. But I need either a procedure or a function to do both. Can anybody help?

RE: How to produce a result set in a procedure

Have you tried calling an Oracle procedure from the function called by SQL Server?
