Try this:

print 'prior: ' +  cast(@rp_prior as varchar(10))

Hope this helps

Since you are concatenating it with a string 'prior: ', it needs to be casted to char or varchar for the + expression to work

i tried print 'prior: ' +  cast(@rp_prior as varchar(20))

..but it gives me a value of 1 instead of 121673441771

Basic Security of Your VPC

So, you’ve got this shiny new VPC and a fancy new application configured on your EC2 servers ready to go. This application is only accessible from your computer, which is great for security, but you need your users to be able to access it! So, what’s the easiest way to do this?

Are you sure @@rowcount is 121673441771 instead of 1 because @@rowcount value will be passed to @rp_prior and printed out

Since you haven't provided out the entire query, I am giving out a sample example:

declare @a int,
@b int,
@c int;

set @a = 10;
set @b = 25;

set @c = @a + @b;
-- set @c = (select sum(colname) from tablename);
Print '@c is : '  + char(@c as varchar(20);

Check out the commented line for your reference
This should guide you out properly.
