exec _GetParamDefault 'random_password;2','@password_type',@value

if exists (select name from sysobjects 
			where name = '_GetParamDefault' and type = 'P')
	drop procedure _GetParamDefault
GO
create proc _GetParamDefault

	@Procname varchar(50),
	@ProcParamName varchar(50),
	@DefaultValue varchar(100) OUTPUT
