Easier if you can make the query in-line, or convert it into a function rather than a stored proc. If you were to convert it to a function, then you can do something like shown below:
UPDATE y SET
	y.Password = f.Password
FROM
	YourTable y
	CROSS APPLY dbo.YourFunction(userId,[name]) f

Could you make your stored procedure a function? A function is more appropriate for this task.

Thanks for your help


Declare @Password nvarchar
UPDATE MyTABLE
SET Password = dbo.Myfunction(@Password)
WHERE ...

That did the trick for me.
