Join Martin Guidry for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring table value functions, part of SQL Server: Triggers Stored Procedures and Functions.
Now I'd like to talk about another type of function, what Microsoft calls a…Table-valued Function.…As the name implies, the results of this function will be an entire table.…I've a little code prepared for you in your exercise files, copy that over.…So the top starts off just like any other function.…We're going to create a function call it 'authors by status' and it will take…one input parameter.…Line 2 says what we are going to return, and we are going to return a table.…
And then lines 3 through 11 define that table.…So just like if you were creating a new table, you have to define all the…columns, give it a name, a data type and whether or not we allow nulls for…each particular field.…So it can be a lot of typing to get all this in because we have to define,…in a fair amount of detail of the entire table we want to define.…The meat of this starts on around line 13, and we see an INSERT statement.…So we defined a table. Right now that table is empty.…
In order for this to be useful, we have to insert something into that table.…
