Difference between Function (UDF) and Stored Procedure on MSSQL

Functions

1- Can be used with Select statement
2- Not returning output parameter but returns Table variables
3- You can join UDF
4- Can not be used to change server configuration
5- Can not be used with XML FOR clause
6- Can not have transaction within function
7- Can be used in Select list
8- Versioning (grouped) Not Allowed
9- Schema Binding Allowed
10- GETDATE() or other non-deterministic functions Not Allowed
11- SET OPTION Allowed
12- Temp Object Not supported

Stored Procedure

1- Have to use EXEC or EXECUTE
2- Return output parameter
3- Can create table but won’t return Table Variables but possible in MSSQL 2008/2008 R2
4- You can not join SP
5- Can be used to change server configuration
6- Can be used with XML FOR Clause
7- Can have transaction within SP
8- You can not use in SELECT list
9- Compiled, can remember execution plan
10- Schema Binding Not Allowed
11- GETDATE() or other non-deterministic functions Allowed
12- SET OPTION Not Allowed
13- Temp Object Accessible – You can use the temp tables inside the procedure
