How To Provide Values to Stored Procedure Parameters?

If a stored procedure is created with parameters, you need pass values to those parameters when calling the stored procedure with one of two formats listed below:

-- Passing values only
EXEC procedure_name value_1, value_2, ... value_n;

-- Passing name-value pairs
EXEC procedure_name 
   @parameter_1 = value_1, 
   @parameter_2 = value_2, 
   ... 
   @parameter_n = value_n;

The tutorial exercise below shows 2 ways to pass values to stored procedure parameters:

DROP PROCEDURE Hello;
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE Hello 
   @url nvarchar(40)
AS
   PRINT 'Welcome to ' + @url;
GO

EXEC Hello 'dba.fyicenter.com';
GO
Welcome to dba.fyicenter.com

EXEC Hello @url='dev.fyicenter.com';
GO
Welcome to dev.fyicenter.com
