I believe that the actual error is on the previous line. There is no "integer" data type in SQL Server. Change the line to:

declare @rowPro int

TSQL is not VB.  No *integer* data  type nor *&* operator.  Use *int* and *+* instead...

Göran AnderssonCommented:
I suppose that "integer" is some not very well documented alias for "int". You should stick with the normal names for the data types, the ones that everyone else are using.

Also, the != operator is non-standard. You should use the <> operator instead.
