You didn't indicate what error you are receiving, but is it this?:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Incorrect syntax near 'test'.

Open in new window


It appears you want to specify a parameter value of 'test' for the sp_scriptpublicationcustomprocs procedure?  If so, this should work for you:

DECLARE @sql2 nvarchar(max)
SET @sql2 = 'sp_scriptpublicationcustomprocs  ''test'' '
INSERT INTO repl_transac_sp EXECUTE (@sql2)
PRINT @sql2

Open in new window


Since your parameter value is part of the string to which you are setting the value of @sql2, you need to double-up the single quotes inside the string.  The brackets are not called for in this case.
