    1.The major difference between procedure and function is that procedure is to be compile only one time and vice versa.Execution of procedure is faster then function

    2.Function can be used in select Queries statement,but in stored procedure it's not possible.

    3.Fuction can return a single value only.Stored procedure return more than one value.

    Stored procedure may or may not return a value. However in SQL Server, a function may return a single value or a table.
    And a function can be used inline in a select statement.
