Hi,

I am trying to setup a stored procedure that can accept 2 OPTIONAL params.  How can I rewrite this so it does that?  I get a syntax error apparently in my ORDER BY clause.

SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[p_getList]
(
@sortColumn nvarchar,
@sortDir nvarchar
)
AS
BEGIN
 
SET NOCOUNT ON;
 
SELECT j.code, j.date_created, j.short_desc
FROM JTable j
ORDER BY @sortColumn @sortDir
   
END


Thanks,
