I've worked with Access for over 10 years and I'm now learning the differences with SQL Server.  I've created a stored proc that uses a parameter.  for some reason it's not returning anything.  If I remove the parameter I get data.

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetCompanyNameParam] (@cmpy nchar)
      SELECT company_venture from dbo.tbl_company where tbl_company.company_venture = @cmpy

right click the proc and select Execute stored procedure.  the dialog comes up where you enter your parameter value.  I type in the value that I know is in the field in the table and run it and it returns nothing.

I'm curious if the datatype is to blame.  the type is a simple string, "MyCompany"

what m I doing wrong???
