Hi,

I have this stored procedure:

create proc ExecuteScripts (@SQLstat varchar(max))
as
begin
exec SQLstat
end



When i try to create this procedure i receive the following warning from SQL Server:

Cannot add rows to sys.sql_dependencies for the stored procedure because it depends on the missing table 'SQLstat'. The stored procedure will still be created; however, it cannot be successfully executed until the table exists.



But SQLstat is a variable that i want to pass, not a table...

Can someone explain?

Thank you
Aashini Shah

Assuming that you are passing the script to be executed in @SQLStat parameter, your procedure should be:

create proc ExecuteScripts (@SQLstat varchar(max))
as
begin
exec ( @SQLstat )
end

Also check sp_executesql if you need to use dynamic sql.
