using UNION in a while loop

hi all,


how can UNION be used in a loop, while I am iterating through the cursor..?

            declare
                  @sTicketType varchar(50)

            declare groupNames cursor
                  local fast_forward read_only
            for
                  select distinct
                        eValue
                  from ework.eAttribute with (readpast)
                  where eValue is not null or eValue<>''

            open groupNames
            fetch next from groupNames into @stickettype
            while @@fetch_status = 0
                  begin
                        print @sTicketType
                        
                        select
                              m1.sTicketType as [Group Name],
                              (
                                    select
                                          count(m2.rowid)
                                    from ework.MasterReportData m2 with (readpast)
                                          inner join ework.eAlert e2 with (readpast)
                                                On m2.eFolderId = e2.eFolderId
                                    where m2.sStatus not in ('Completed','Withdrawn','Deleted') and e2.eAlertType<>'' and m2.sTicketType=@sTicketType --'Cash App Request'
                              ) as [Ticket Total],
                              m1.sStatus as [Status],
                              count(m1.sStatus) as [Ticket Count],
                              (
                                    select
                                          sum(case
                                                      when (datediff(ss, m3.eCreationTime, GetDate())>86400) then
                                                            1
                                                      else
                                                            0
                                                end)
                                    from ework.MasterReportData m3 with (readpast)
                                          inner join ework.eAlert e3 with (readpast)
                                                on m3.eFolderId = e3.eFolderId
                                    where m3.sStatus not in ('Completed','Withdrawn','Deleted') and e3.eAlertType<>'' and m3.sTicketType=@sTicketType and m3.sStatus=m1.sStatus
                              ) as [Number of Overdue Tickets]
                        from ework.MasterReportData m1 with (readpast)
                              inner join ework.eAlert e1 with (readpast)
                                    On m1.eFolderId = e1.eFolderId
                        where m1.sStatus not in ('Completed','Withdrawn','Deleted') and e1.eAlertType<>'' and m1.sTicketType=@sTicketType
                        group by m1.sTicketType, m1.sStatus
                        having count(m1.sStatus)>0
                        order by m1.sTicketType, m1.sStatus

                        fetch next from groupNames into @sTicketType
                  end

            close groupNames
            deallocate groupNames

I could use something like this

m3.sTicketType in (@sTicketType)

where @sTicketType would be comma separated values but that's not what I want yet  ;)
