What are Stored procedures?

A stored procedure ia s named collection of SQL statements and procedural logic that is compiled, verified and stored in a server database. It is typically treated like any other database object. Stored procedures accept input parameters so that a single procedure can be used over the network by multiple clients using different input data. A single remote message triggers the execution of a collection of stored SQL statements. The results is a reduction of network traffic and better performance.

A stored procedure is a precompiled collection of Transact-SQL statements and optional flow control statements, similar to an executable script. Stored procedures are stored and run within the database. You can run a stored procedure with the EXECUTE SQL statement in a database client tool, just as you can run SQL statements. Unlike standard SQL, however, stored procedures allow user-defined variables, conditional statements, and other powerful programming features.
