I'm trying to get the following sql statement to run, but have issues with the quotations or??

Here is the statement:

SET @DestDB = 'FS84ZAP'

exec ('use ' + @DestDB + ';UPDATE PS_PV_SRCH_RUN_CTL SET FILE_DIRECTORY = ''\\serverxxx\psoft\verity\''' + @DestDB + '''')

When I check syntax its ok. When I click run, here is the error messge:

Error:

Server: Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 1

Line 1: Incorrect syntax near 'FS84ZAP'.

Server: Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 1

Unclosed quotation mark before the character string ''.

I've used single quotations above. The statementwill run fine below minus the db variable:

exec ('use ' + @DestDB + ';UPDATE PS_PV_SRCH_RUN_CTL SET FILE_DIRECTORY = ''\\serverxxx\psoft\verity\'''

Appreciate help

Replace

exec ('use ' + @DestDB + ';UPDATE PS_PV_SRCH_RUN_CTL SET FILE_DIRECTORY = ''\\serverxxx\psoft\verity\''' + @DestDB + '''')

with

print 'use ' + @DestDB + ';UPDATE PS_PV_SRCH_RUN_CTL SET FILE_DIRECTORY = ''\\serverxxx\psoft\verity\''' + @DestDB + ''''

and you'll see what's wrong with the syntax of your query.
