How flexible are SQL Server stored procs?

Hi,

Just a quick question. In the past I have used Oracle PL/SQL to write procedures to do all sorts of things. It is possible to use if statements and loops and variables etc to manipulate your data however you want. I just want to know if this is possible in a SQL Server stored procedure? I'm trying to write one but the more I get into it the more I realise it is going to need variables to store info in, a cursor that can be looped around and some if statements. Is this feasible or should I be writing this in vb or something? I'd like to be able to schedule the script in SQL Server to run regularly.

Any help appreciated,

Thanks,
Paula.

IFs, CASEs, Cursors, Variables and Scheduled jobs are all available in SQL Server :)
