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

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

Thanks. It works great. Sorry for the trouble. I'm still new to SQL Server.

It is possible to export the data of a SQL Table in SSMS and generate INSERT statements. It's neatly tucked away in the generate scripts option of a database.
An alternative to the "For XML" way of pivoting and concatenating result sets into strings, and an easy introduction to "common table expressions" (CTEs). Being someone who is always looking for alternatives to "work your data", I came across this …
Using examples as well as descriptions, and references to Books Online, show the documentation available for datatypes, explain the available data types and show how data can be passed into and out of variables.
Viewers will learn how to use the INSERT statement to insert data into their tables. It will also introduce the NULL statement, to show them what happens when no value is giving for any given column.
