I have a stored procedure called upsTest(see below).  I’d like to pass table name as a parameter, so I create another stored procedure called uspTest1, but it doesn’t work.  Is there any way I can use stored procedure to pass tablename?   Thanks in advance.

CREATE PROCEDURE uspTest  
AS
select * from table1


CREATE PROCEDURE uspTest1  
@TableName varchar(50)
AS
select * from @TableName
