Hi,

I am trying to create a procedure that will lookup a certain number of columns that will match a value and return that column name, e.g.
columnA
columnB
columnC
columnD
columnE
columnF
columnG
columnH

if the value of @IDValue = 'Stuart'

it would it will check each column for that value if matched it will return the Columnname otherwise return 'no found', there will only be one match.

I thought about using a case but am not sure if this the best way to do this.

Thanks
