Hello,

I try to execute this script :
declare @sql1 varchar(max)
set @sql1 = 'delete from ['+@abonne + '].'+ @Db_ods + '.dbo.MSreplication_subscriptions'
where [publication] = '''+@publication+'''''
execute (@sql1)
print (@sql1)

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Procedure drop_repl, Line 84
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'where'.

Thanks

Hi, you have a non terminated string, you need to add the where part also.

set @sql1 = 'delete from ['+@abonne + '].'+ @Db_ods + '.dbo.MSreplication_subscriptions' + ' where [publication] = '''+@publication+''''

I don't understand why my answer was not considerated, since I said the same thing Raj said, but 8 minutes earlier.

I guess it's the luck of the draw.
