I have this Stored Procedure I am writing, and i need to get the Database name from a table to run another query from that stored database name. how can i fix this.

declare cur1 cursor for
SELECT [id],[Source_Interid],[From_Vendor_ID],[To_Vendor_ID] FROM [CE_CUSTOM].[dbo].[dw_Vendor_Merge] Where processed_flag='N'
            
open cur1
fetch next from cur1 into @id, @Company, @Old_Vendor_ID, @New_Vendor_ID
set @Company=ltrim(rtrim(@Company))
while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
begin


THIS IS THE PROBLEM LINE OF CODE.

              -- Get the Vedors New Name
    Select @New_Vendor_Name = select VENDNAME from @Company..pm00200 where VENDORID = @New_Vendor_ID

End line of code NOTE WHERE IT SAYS @COMPANY NAME THAT IS THE PROBLEM.



 etch next from cur1 into @id, @Company, @Old_Vendor_ID, @New_Vendor_ID
 end
close cur1
deallocate cur1

Replace
Select @New_Vendor_Name = select VENDNAME from @Company..pm00200 where VENDORID = @New_Vendor_ID
to
Select @New_Vendor_Name = VENDNAME from @Company..pm00200 where VENDORID = @New_Vendor_ID

My bad on this, but I had paste that in by mistake. I ment to say exactly what you stated but the problem is this part @Company..pm00200  of  the statement?

 Select @New_Vendor_Name = VENDNAME from @Company..pm00200 where VENDORID = @New_Vendor_ID

I get this error
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Procedure ce_sp_DW_Vendor_Merge, Line 40
Incorrect syntax near '.'.

Hi,

You need to use the dynamic execution of code. Something like below may be useful.
Please add below code with your code and give it a try.

 
-- Declare a SQL Statement Variable
declare @strSql nvarchar(1000)

-- In the loop of your code assign the value into the @strSql 
select @strSql = 'SELECT @New_Vendor_Name = VENDNAME FROM ' + @Company + '..pm00200 WHERE VENDORID = @New_Vendor_ID'
-- Now execute the below statement. You may need to change the datatype or length
exec sp_executesql @strSql, N'@New_Vendor_Name VARCHAR(50) OUTPUT, @New_Vendor_ID VARCHAR(6)',  @New_Vendor_Name OUTPUT, @New_Vendor_ID 

-- At this point you are having the proper value in the variable @New_Vendor_Name

Hi,

I think you want something along these lines:

declare @ParameterDefinition nvarchar(500) = '@New_Vendor_Name_OUT nvarchar(100) OUTPUT'
declare @New_Vendor_Name nvarchar(100)

declare @qry nvarchar(4000) = 'Select @New_Vendor_Name_OUT = (select VENDNAME from ' + @Company + '..pm00200 where VENDORID = ' + convert(varchar, @New_Vendor_ID) + ')'

exec sp_executesql  @qry, @ParameterDefinition, @New_Vendor_Name_OUT = @New_Vendor_Name OUTPUT

Regards, Jacco

I agree with rajeevnandanmishra's comment.
@Company is a variable. It cannot be appended directly to actual query string

SELECT * FROM @Company..pm00200
will be executed as it is. Since there is not database with name '@Company' it will be an error
Instead we want the value of that variable
So using dynamic query, it would work
@Company + '..pm00200' will become something like somedbname..pm00200'

Hope it is clear
