No, it is not a typo error in my code. There are no numbers in the parameters, so this came out of nowhere. The parameter "Number" is nowhere to be found.  This is odd and I have no idea how to fix this. I tried dropping the stored proc and re-creating, but the error persists.

Can anyone offer a suggestion on how ti fix this? Code is below.

Thanks for any help.
