Attached video demonstrates the following:
  • Create a stored procedure (with a single parameter) from the scratch using SSMS.  You can also have stored procedures with no/multiple parameters
  • Execute the newly created stored procedure using SSMS (this generates code to execute a stored procedure automatically)
  • Modify the generated code (to execute stored procedure) and re-execute the same (multiple number of times).
Following is the sample stored procedure developed for this demo:

01.CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[uspEmpSalesByCountry]
03.    @EmployeeID int
07.    IF  EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.objects WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[EmpSales]') AND type in (N'U'))
08.    BEGIN
09.        DROP TABLE EmpSales;
10.    END
12.    SELECT Employees.Country, Employees.LastName, Employees.FirstName, Orders.ShippedDate, Orders.OrderID, "Order Subtotals".Subtotal AS SaleAmount
13.    INTO EmpSales
14.    FROM Employees INNER JOIN
15.        (Orders INNER JOIN "Order Subtotals" ON Orders.OrderID = "Order Subtotals".OrderID)
16.        ON Employees.EmployeeID = Orders.EmployeeID
17.    WHERE Employees.EmployeeID = @EmployeeID

Following is the script used to test the above:

01.USE [Northwind]
04.DECLARE @return_value int
06.EXEC    @return_value = [dbo].[uspEmpSalesByCountry]
07.        @EmployeeID = 3
09.SELECT  'Return Value' = @return_value
