When calling stored procedures with input parameters, do I need to declare variables or not before the execute command, I don't usually, but I see in SSMS when generating the script for execute sproc, it declares all the variables before call the sproc.

Depends what you're doing, where the values for the proc come from, whether there are output procedures, etc.

I just do a simple call to a stored procedure with 3 input parameters in ssms,
no output value.

for example I just want to execute sp_WhoIsActive with some input parameters in SSMS,
and it returns the result at the grid. I guess it is not requried to declare parameters data type, unless it will reused after execute statement, is that correct?

In SSMS, when generating script, it always declare the datatype of parameters, so wondered if it is required.

Thanks

I let SSMS generate the script to run a stored proc, and I get this:



DECLARE @RC int
DECLARE @DDVersion varchar(20)

-- TODO: Set parameter values here.

EXECUTE @RC = [cidne2110].[dbo].[spDDAddFixAll]
@DDVersion
GO




I edit the code like this, then execute it:



DECLARE @RC int
DECLARE @DDVersion varchar(20) = '2.1.10'

-- TODO: Set parameter values here.

EXECUTE @RC = [cidne2110].[dbo].[spDDAddFixAll]
@DDVersion
GO




This would be the same thing:



EXECUTE dbo.spDDAddFixAll '2.1.10'
GO

Thanks, yes, I tried those earlier and knew they all work, but just want to confirm my question on my previous post.
