MS SQL syntax question

What is the correct syntax for this SP?   I want to create a SP to recreate some triggers in a DB.   Here is what I have tried.

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.CreateTriggersInPL2DB
      
AS

      
create TRIGGER PL2Enhancement_addEbayAuction
ON POWERLINK.dbo.INVENTORY
FOR insert
AS
insert into PLEnhancements.dbo.ebayListingQueue

(
InventoryID,
CreatedOn,
ActionToPerform,
Status
)

select
inventoryID,
getdate(),
'addItem',
null

from inserted

Create TRIGGER PL2Enhancement_addProductToSF
ON dbo.INVENTORY
FOR insert
AS
declare @inventoryID int
select @InventoryID=inventoryid from inserted

exec PLEnhancements.dbo.InsertProductIntoSFbyInventoryID @InventoryID
      
RETURN

CREATE scripts have to be isolated, with the exception of temp tables.
so the only solution is to make it dynamic sql:


CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.CreateTriggersInPL2DB
     
AS

exec ('      
create TRIGGER PL2Enhancement_addEbayAuction
ON POWERLINK.dbo.INVENTORY
FOR insert
AS
insert into PLEnhancements.dbo.ebayListingQueue

(
InventoryID,
CreatedOn,
ActionToPerform,
Status
)

select
inventoryID,
getdate(),
''addItem'',
null

from inserted
')

exec ('
Create TRIGGER PL2Enhancement_addProductToSF
ON dbo.INVENTORY
FOR insert
AS
declare @inventoryID int
select @InventoryID=inventoryid from inserted

exec PLEnhancements.dbo.InsertProductIntoSFbyInventoryID @InventoryID
')
     
RETURN

Why are you trying to do this within a stored procedure? Why not just script the triggers? Are you planning to run this stored procedure often?
