I've build a stored proc where I loop and set up a part of the query but it shows up empty.

This will work
//////////////////////////////////
SELECT TOP 20 ItemCode, Descr FROM Items WHERE ItemCode like 'cf%'  AND ( brandid = 1 OR brandid = 2 OR brandid = 3 OR brandid = 4 OR brandid = 0)
//////////////////////////////////

But this won't
///////////////////////////////////
DECLARE @setBrand varchar(200)
SET @setBrand = ' AND ( brandid = 1 OR brandid = 2 OR brandid = 3 OR brandid = 4 OR brandid = 0)'

SELECT TOP 20 ItemCode, Descr FROM Items WHERE ItemCode like 'cf%' + @setBrand
///////////////////////////////////

I know this is probably not of a big deal, but I can't figured it out.

Thanks
