Table-valued parameters were introduced in SQL Server 2008, and provide an efficient way to pass multiple rows of data to the server. Table-valued parameters provide functionality similar to parameter arrays, but they offer more flexibility and closer integration with Transact-SQL, and can frequently improve performance. Table-valued parameters can also participate in set-based operations, whereas parameter arrays cannot.
