How can I build a dynamic SQL statement without inserting the SQL into a variable.

For example the store procedure has a variable called @Sex.

This is my main SQL statement:

Select * FROM MYTABLE
WHERE SSN = @SSN AND AGE=@AGE AND

I would build the rest of the SQL statement using the variable @SEX

@SEX (if male)
TVSHOWS=@TVSHOWS AND RACING=@RACING AND NASCAR=@NASCAR

@SEX (if Female)
SOAPS=@SOAPS AND COOKING=@COOKING AND CHILDREN=@CHILDREN

Make separate queries in a stored procedure. Then just pass in the sex of the person when calling the stored procedure and it will run the correct query for you.

IF @SEX = "MALE"
TVSHOWS=@TVSHOWS AND RACING=@RACING AND NASCAR=@NASCAR

IF @SEX = "MALE"
SOAPS=@SOAPS AND COOKING=@COOKING AND CHILDREN=@CHILDREN

try this syntax:

Select * FROM MYTABLE
WHERE SSN = @SSN AND AGE=@AGE AND
and (
case  
when @sex='M' and TVSHOWS=@TVSHOWS AND RACING=@RACING AND NASCAR=@NASCAR then 1
when @sex='F' and SOAPS=@SOAPS AND COOKING=@COOKING AND CHILDREN=@CHILDREN then 1
else 0
end
) = 1

Do you really need a dynamic sql for this? You can try like this.
SELECT * 
  FROM MYTABLE 
 WHERE SSN = @SSN 
       AND AGE = @AGE 
       AND ((@SEX = 'male' 
             AND TVSHOWS = @TVSHOWS 
             AND RACING = @RACING 
             AND NASCAR = @NASCAR) 
             OR (@SEX = 'Female' 
                 AND SOAPS = @SOAPS 
                 AND COOKING = @COOKING 
                 AND CHILDREN = @CHILDREN))

Here is the solution:

(@SEX = 'male' AND (TVSHOWS=@TVSHOWS AND RACING=@RACING AND NASCAR=@NASCAR))

(@SEX = 'female' AND (TVSHOWS=@TVSHOWS AND RACING=@RACING AND NASCAR=@NASCAR))

Solution was provided. Not sure why the asker wants to close this question without accepting any expert's post. In fact the solution posted by asker is wrong when checked with what he/she asked.
