mySQL vs. MS SQL - CREATE PROCEDURE differences?

317 Views
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I work primarily with MS SQL.  When I want to create a procedure I take an existing procedure and change it.  I make the changes to the procedure as I want and then change ALTER to CREATE and execute it.

Apparently it doesn't work the same way.  The '@' generates an error if CREATE syntax is used as opposed to ALTER.

I can't find a sample CREATE PROCEDURE with variables being passed.
