    Hi,

    Who told that every one using function for calculations?

    Few people are using. Because We can use functions in a SELECT statement but we cannot use procedures similarly.

    Hi.

    Everything depends on a specific situation.

    Fox example : procedure can't be used in SQL SELECT.
