I have to write a sp that would give two data sets one with the coumns (metadata) like firstname, lastname, address, phonenumber

and then second result set would return just the count of the rows
count(*) of the above select

please advise

Dave's right. Here's a good practice tip:

@@ROWCOUNT changes with each new SET or SELECT, so if you want to hold on to the value for a while, be sure to store it in the variable of your choice.


-- always returns a @@ROWCOUNT of 1, because of the SET statement
declare @DoNothing int
select name from sys.databases
SET @DoNothing = 1
select @@ROWCOUNT as rowsReturned
go

-- saves the rowcount in @RC for later reference
declare @rc int
declare @DoNothing int
select name from sys.databases
SET @rc = @@ROWCOUNT -- save for later
set @DoNothing = 1
select @rc as rowsReturned

I have to write a sp that would give two data sets...

It is usually more efficient to just return one data set, and return the row count in an output parameter.

True, but then you create headaches for the poor, struggling UI developer who has to learn how to handle two different types of output from a single procedure. ;-)

In my experience, UI developers are happier* to learn about OUTPUT parameters than to use MARS.
Turning a parameter into an OUTPUT parameter generally involves just specifying its direction in an existing .NET statement.



* = also, if they want to use my database, they will do it my way Laugh Laugh Laugh
