I have this stored procedure. As long as the variable sent down is a number it works. However, if I send it an alphumeric value(i.e. C99 as opposed to 99) it errors out with the message "Invalid Column Name". How do I correct my stored procedure?


CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[rbsUpdateSTAXNOTE] 
@Old_CustomerID varchar(15),
@New_CustomerID varchar(15),
@Return_code int output
 
AS 
 
declare @sql nvarchar(4000)
SET @Return_Code = 1
/* If old customer ID is found, update it to the new customer ID */
IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM STAXNOTE WHERE rtrim(CUSTOMER_NUMBER_STXN)=rtrim(@Old_CustomerID))
BEGIN
    
    SET @sql = ' update STAXNOTE ' +
               ' set CUSTOMER_NUMBER_STXN = ' + @New_CustomerID + 
               ' where CUSTOMER_NUMBER_STXN= @Old_CustomerID'
    exec sp_executesql @sql, N'@Old_CustomerID varchar(15)',@Old_CustomerID
  
END
ELSE
BEGIN
    SET @Return_Code=0
END
 
SELECT @Return_Code
 
RETURN 
 
GO

Change to:

               ' set CUSTOMER_NUMBER_STXN = ''' + @New_CustomerID + '''' +

Note that those are all single-quotes...
