Query 1 :

SELECT      AppID, AppName, AppDesc,
            'Status' = CASE
                  WHEN  Active = 1 THEN 'Active'                  
                  WHEN  Active = 0 THEN 'Inactive'
                  ELSE 'Active'
            END            
FROM      tblApp
WHERE      AppName in ('The Windows Generator','The Windows Scott Button')

This above query returns 2 records which is expected....

Query 2 :

DECLARE @AppName VARCHAR(100)
SET @AppName = '''The Windows Generator''' + ',' + '''The Windows Scott Button'''
PRINT @AppName

SELECT      AppID, AppName, AppDesc,
            'Status' = CASE
                  WHEN  Active = 1 THEN 'Active'                  
                  WHEN  Active = 0 THEN 'Inactive'
                  ELSE 'Active'
            END            
      FROM      tblApp
      WHERE      AppName IN (@AppName)

But when I used with the input variable then its showing the zero records...why it is so..Am I missing something....I am trying run these queries in the sql server 2005.

Any help on this would be highly appreciated.
