How to call or execute a Stored Procedure from Select Statement in SQL Server?

It is really simple to call a stored procedure from a select statement Using OPENROWSET.

Below TSQL Query calls the procedure sp_who from the select statement.

SELECT * FROM 
   OPENROWSET('SQLNCLI'
              ,'Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=Master'
              ,'EXEC dbo.sp_Who')

Syntax:

SELECT * FROM 
   OPENROWSET('SQLNCLI'
              ,'Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=Master'
              ,'EXEC [procedurename]')

Additional Information:
The data that is coming from the procedure can also be filtered in the where clause.

SELECT * FROM 
   OPENROWSET('SQLNCLI'
              ,'Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=Master'
              ,'EXEC dbo.sp_Who')
where dbname = 'master'

The data from the execution of a select statement can be directly pushed into a table.

SELECT * INTO who2_table FROM 
   OPENROWSET('SQLNCLI'
              ,'Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=Master'
              ,'EXEC dbo.sp_Who')
where dbname = 'master'

If the openrowset is disabled in the system, learn how to enable it using this link enable openrowset
