Following code is not working and return A cursor with the name 'Cur' does not exist.
But if i replace EXEC() by PRINT and run the printed line manually is working. What can i do?

EXEC('DECLARE Cur CURSOR LOCAL FORWARD_ONLY READ_ONLY FOR SELECT DISTINCT(UI.FK_UserId), UI.DateInscrit, SM.DateEncaissement FROM Stats..UserNfo UI, SalesMembership SM, Stats_Panier_Moyen_'+@sPays+'_Cumul SPMCC WHERE UI.FK_UserId=SM.FK_UserId AND UI.FK_UserId=SPMCC.FK_UserId AND SM.Annule=0 AND SM.MontantEncaissement>0 AND SM.DateEncaissement<='''+@DateArretSuivi+''' ORDER BY SM.DateEncaissement')

simple answer is that as it is dynamic sql it is creating a local cursor in its own context not that of the caller.

remove the keyword local.  or better still .. dont use dynamic sql.  or even better dont use cursors or dynamic sql.  

twhat is it you are trying to do with the cursor ?
