At a very high level, Oracle and SQL Server stored procedures do the same thing. What differs is how they work. Oracle's procedures are written in a language called PL/SQL. SQL Server's procedures are written in a language called T-SQL. These languages are proprietary to the RDMBS vendor. And there are many differences in these languages, too many to enumerate here. If you are working on both systems, I recommend learning both languages. You will quickly become familiar with the differences between Oracle and SQL Server with respect to stored procedures.
