I was looking at this stored proc and was confused over this code. Here is a snippet:

alter PROCEDURE [xxx]
	@Lang			tinyint = 0
	,@CurrUserID	varchar(10) = null

	DECLARE @errnum int
... //I removed several lines

	exec @errnum = _OrganizationDocketRate_Fetch @Lang, @CurrUserID

What I think is that there is no point to @errnum. Is this true? i.e. I don't see how it can be returned.

Quite right; in that code, @errnum is not used, but it will still contain the value RETURNed by the _OrganizationDocketRate_Fetch procedure.

Instead of "RETURN @@ERROR", you can use "RETURN @@errnum", if that is indeed what you want to do. But, as written, the value of @errnum is assigned but not used, so there is no point to having it.
