When you write stored procedures, triggers, and user-defined functions, you need to
decide whether to use traditional Transact-SQL or a programming language that is
compatible with the .NET Framework, such as Visual Basic .NET or C#. Transact-
SQL is best for situations in which the code primarily performs data access with little
or no procedural logic. Programming languages that are compatible with the
.NET Framework are best-suited for computationally-intensive functions and
procedures that feature complex logic or for situations where you want to take
advantage of the .
