Hi,

Why the following code gives error? I have @temp table variable already declared, @p_SampleRecords variable already declared and assigned a value.


Declare @strSql varchar(max)
set @strSql = 'select top ' + cast(@p_SampleRecords as varchar) + ' * from @temp order by TStamp desc'
Exec (@strSql)

Thanks & Regards,
Sean Lange

Your dynamic sql runs in a new batch. You think you have @p_SampleRecords variable already declared and assigned a value but that is not in the same batch. From what you posted I don't think you need dynamic sql at all.
