nothing outputs:

SELECT @Abbr = RTRIM(Merchant.Abbr)
FROM Asset
INNER JOIN Pool ON Asset.PoolID = Pool.PoolID AND Asset.PoolSID = Pool.PoolSID
INNER JOIN Merchant on Pool.MerchantID = Merchant.MerchantID AND Pool.MerchantSID = Merchant.MerchantSID
WHERE Asset.AssetID = @AssetID AND Asset.AssetSID = @AssetSID

how do I see what is in @Abbr?

That's because when you SET @variable = something, it makes the assignment but does not SELECT the value such that it is returned.

SELECT @Abbr = RTRIM(Merchant.Abbr)
FROM Asset
INNER JOIN Pool ON Asset.PoolID = Pool.PoolID AND Asset.PoolSID = Pool.PoolSID
INNER JOIN Merchant on Pool.MerchantID = Merchant.MerchantID AND Pool.MerchantSID = Merchant.MerchantSID
WHERE Asset.AssetID = @AssetID AND Asset.AssetSID = @AssetSID

-- Show the value
SELECT @Abbr

... or, not even have the @Abbr variable, and just return the value, like ...


SELECT RTRIM(Merchant.Abbr)
FROM Asset
INNER JOIN Pool ON Asset.PoolID = Pool.PoolID AND Asset.PoolSID = Pool.PoolSID
INNER JOIN Merchant on Pool.MerchantID = Merchant.MerchantID AND Pool.MerchantSID = Merchant.MerchantSID
WHERE Asset.AssetID = @AssetID AND Asset.AssetSID = @AssetSID
