Thanks.
See the following code, i don't know how many column there. Is it possible?

DECLARE crsResult CURSOR FOR
   (
      SELECT + @Sql
   )

      OPEN crsResult
            FETCH NEXT FROM crsResult INTO @JobCategory
            WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
            BEGIN
                  
                  IF @@FETCH_STATUS <> 0
                        BEGIN
                              --Here is processing
                        END
                  FETCH NEXT FROM crsResult INTO @JobCategory
      END
      CLOSE crsResult
