hi (me again)

i'm trying to get a proc to execute by passing in a dynamic sql string.

this works...

exec [MediaCreateCustomerDataSet] @accountId, @yr, @stockGroup, @stockCode, @stockDescription



but this doesn't (error: The name '[MediaCreateCustomerDataSet] @accountId, @yr, @stockGroup, @stockCode, @stockDescription' is not a valid identifier.)...

set @sqlStr = @dataSet + ' @accountId, @yr, @stockGroup, @stockCode, @stockDescription'

exec @sqlStr



i also tried (error: Incorrect syntax near ',')...


set @sqlStr = @dataSet + ' ' + @accountId, @yr, @stockGroup, @stockCode, @stockDescription

exec @sqlStr



thanks

Why the square brackets around [MediaCreateCustomerDataSet] ?

They aren't generally needed unless you're using a SQL Server reserved word or have spaces in the name. Have you tried your dynamic query without them?

Can you post the entire statement that is causing the error?

This way be an object name, and optionally parameters after object name

exec @sqlStr



THIS way, you can execute a string command: note the parenthesis!

exec(@sqlStr )

Lowell,

Good catch! Something bothered me about that EXEC statement but I didn't stop to think about it. An idle question for anybody: are those brackets a problem or not?

Lowell,are those brackets a problem or not?


Nope, no problem.
If you script anything or use the shortcut menu to execute a procedure in SSMS it puts brackets around everything.


Far away is close at hand in the images of elsewhere.
