In that step there is no where '*'

here is command in the step


declare @spid varchar(2)
declare @execstat nvarchar(10)

declare kill_cursor cursor
for
select spid
from sysprocesses sp, sysdatabases sdb
where sp.dbid=sdb.dbid
and name='database_name'
open kill_cursor
Fetch next from kill_cursor into @spid
while (@@fetch_status =0)
Begin
set @execstat ='kill'+' '+@spid
exec sp_executesql @execstat
fetch next from kill_cursor into @spid
End
Close kill_cursor

sp_dboption is a depreciated feature, user alter database instead

ALTER DATABASE myDB SET SINGLE_USER

What version of SQL are you running?

What is the purpose of the task at hand, do you just want to boot people out or are you setting the DB into single user mode?

sysprocesses and sysdatabases are also depreciated

The purpose of task is , restore database
so first need to kill all spids for that database and then
change database into single user mode

so right now, job is failed to step-1(kill all spids)

The above will do exactly the same as what you are trying to do, just it is the new way of doing it.

so it means


ALTER DATABASE myDB SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE

command will kill all spids as well as set database into SINGLE_USER ?

Yep that is correct.

ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE, will force any connections in that databases to stop executing and rollback what they where doing if they where in the middle of a transaction

SINGLE_USER does just what it says, after rollback, change DB to single user so that only 1 SPID can connect to it
