Executing prepared statement in procedure

Is there any way to execute a prepared statement in a stored procedure in Sybase 11?  In Microsoft SQL Server, you can do the following in a procedure:

  select @stmt = "select custname from customer"
  execute (@stmt)

I believe that you can do the same in SQL Anywhere, although it might be "execute immediate" instead of just "execute".  Can this be done in Sybase 11?

Not in 11.0.x.  In 11.5.x and above, there is a stored procedure called sp_remotesql that can be used to do this.  Do a powersearch for "sp_remotesql" at http://www.dejanews.com to find a full description of how to do this.

A more direct "execute immediate" functionality is planned for the next release (12.0), due out around the middle of the year.
