I have a complex sql query that I'd like to create a view for.  I went to views, create view and copied the query into it.  But it won't let me pass the @variable that I need there.  How do I do this?  Basically, whenever I use the view, I would have that parameter being passed in.

Thanks.

Hi YLaw,

you will need to create a stored procedue or a tabled valued function as views do not support parameters

YLaw,

Views are nothing but virtual tables, you can't pass variables. You can either go for a function or a stored procedure
