I need to create a login in a stored procedure.
CREATE LOGIN [MYDOMAIN\TestPerson] FROM WINDOWS;

Above works fine. However, I need to pass the login name into the spoc. The code below does not work.

DECLARE @Log varchar(50)
SET @Log = '[MYDOMAIN\TestPerson]'
CREATE LOGIN @Log FROM WINDOWS;

How can I do this?

Thanks
Bob

Try this instead...

DECLARE
  @Log Varchar(50),
  @sql varchar(500)

set @sql = 'CREATE LOGIN '+ @Log
exec (@sql)
