Hi.  I have a variable named @CheckIt.  I want to be able to display a message saying "CheckIt value is: "  followed by the value in the variable. Does anyone know how to code this in SQL Server?

I guess that you only want this:

print 'CheckIt value is: ' + cast(@checkit as vachar(20))

Do you mean something like this

PRINT 'CheckIt value is:' + Convert(Varchar(10),@CheckIt)
