Use SQL Parameter in a Dynamic SQL Query

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I'm trying to write a dynamic query that sets a parameter = a query value below. But it doesn't work in dynamic sql.
Declare @Name NVarchar(50),
		@TableName NVarchar(255),
		@SQL Varchar(4000)

SET @TableName = '##_TempTable'

SET @SQL = '
	SELECT' + @Name + ' = Country
	FROM' 
	  + Convert(NVarchar(50), @TableName) + '
	WHERE 
	  Country NOT IN
				(
					SELECT DISTINCT
						country 
					FROM
						Countries WITH (NoLock)
					WHERE
						Country IS NOT NULL )
				
  '	  
  PRINT @SQL
  EXEC sp_executesql @SQL
