Hi, I'm currently getting error in the following code for 'interestName'.  It doesn't like me using it in the Insert statement.  Do I need to select into a @variable?  What's the syntax like?  Thank you.

Msg 128, Level 15, State 1, Procedure GetData, Line 85
The name "interestName" is not permitted in this context. Valid expressions are constants, constant expressions, and (in some contexts) variables. Column names are not permitted.
SELECT dbo.ResearchInterests.Name as interestName, dbo.ResearchInterests.ParentResearchInterest_id as parentId

	from dbo.ResearchInterests

	WHERE dbo.ResearchInterests.Id = @interestChildId

 

INSERT INTO [CtsiMembershipProduction].[dbo].[Interest]

           ([Name])

     VALUES

           (interestName)

I see but I also need the paretnId.  I need it for my innner while condition, while parentId <> NULL.  Can I select the value into a @Local_variable?  If not, What can I do here to get both selected values?  Thank you.

WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS =0  --GO THROUGH EACH RECORD
BEGIN
      --The following select will get us the 1st child id for Rsch interest
      SELECT dbo.ResearchInterests.Name AS interestName, dbo.ResearchInterests.ParentResearchInterest_id as parentId
      from dbo.ResearchInterests
      WHERE dbo.ResearchInterests.Id = @interestChildId

INSERT INTO [CtsiMembershipProduction].[dbo].[Interest]([Name])
     VALUES
           (interestName)

      WHILE(parentId <> NULL)--USE THE PARENTID TO TRAVERSE TO ITS PARENT NODE UNTIL REACHES ROOT NODE
      BEGIN
            set @interestChildId = parentId
            SELECT dbo.ResearchInterests.Name, dbo.ResearchInterests.ParentResearchInterest_id as parentId
            from dbo.ResearchInterests
            WHERE dbo.ResearchInterests.Id = @interestChildId
      END

      FETCH NEXT FROM curApplicationRow
      INTO @interestChildId
END
