Returning Result Set

The output of this external stored procedure is in the form of a stored procedure dynamic result. That is, the external stored procedure can return result sets to the client application or to the caller of the external stored procedure (in addition to consuming the result sets itself) upon completion of the external stored procedure.

For more information about stored procedure dynamic result sets, see Teradata Vantageā„¢ - SQL External Routine Programming, B035-1147.
