What is wrong with this syntax? I've written this in Query Analyzer (7.0 beta) and when I attempt to run it I get an "Incorrect syntax near '='." error.

--My Code
declare cProcList cursor for
      select name from sysobjects
            where xtype = 'P'
                  and name > 'du'
            order by name
open cProcList
while (SQLCODE == 0)
(
      fetch cProcList
)
close cProcList

>while (SQLCODE == 0)
Why do you have two 'equal' signs?

That is the way the example until FETCH in Books On-Line shows it. And when I change the == to a single = I get another error:

Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'fetch'.

I don't have the SQL 7 BOL with me right now, but the parenthesis around the fetch look suspicious.  I've not spent a lot of time with SQL 7, so maybe they've added that syntax... try begin/end instead:

while (SQLCODE = 0)
begin
    fetch cProcList
end

That gives me a new error.

Invalid column name 'SQLCODE'.

Let's back up a bit... what is it you are trying to do?  

Looks to me like you want to cursor through all sprocs and do something with each... try this:

    declare @sprocname varchar(128)
    declare cProcList cursor for
        select  name
        from    sysobjects
        where   xtype = 'p'
        and     name > 'du'
        order by name
    open cProcList
    while (1=1) begin
        fetch next from cProcList into @sprocname
        if @@fetch_status = -1 break
        if @@fetch_status = -2 continue
        if @@fetch_status <> 0 break
        -- do whatever here with each sproc
        print @sprocname
    end
    close cProcList
