Rowset Functions (Transact-SQL)

The following rowset functions return an object that can be used in place of a table reference in a Transact-SQL statement.

All rowset functions are nondeterministic. This means these functions do not always return the same results every time they are called, even with the same set of input values. For more information about function determinism, see Deterministic and Nondeterministic Functions.
