Dear all,
I use The following :
DECLARE @Names VARCHAR(8000) ;DECLARE @i int=0; 
SELECT top 10 @Names = COALESCE(@Names +', ', '') + '[' + COLUMN_NAME+  ']' 
FROM dbo.site_DatabaseFields
where TABLE_CATALOG + '.' + TABLE_SCHEMA + '.' + TABLE_NAME  = 'JDB.dbo.Invoices'
SELECT @Names

Open in new window

To Generate :
[AccNo], [Attach], [BankName], [Branch], [BranchSer], [CName], [City], [CriditPeriod], [CusPO], [DiffDay]

Open in new window


I need to generate :
[AccNo] as Field1, [Attach] as Field2, [BankName] as Field3, [Branch] as Field4, [BranchSer] as Field5, [CName] as Field6, [City] as Field7, [CriditPeriod] as Field8, [CusPO] as Field9, [DiffDay] as Field10

Try this:
DECLARE @Names VARCHAR(8000) ;DECLARE @i int=0; 
SELECT top 10 @i = @i + 1, @Names = COALESCE(@Names +', ', '') + '[' + COLUMN_NAME+  '] as Field' + CONVERT(varchar, @i) 
FROM dbo.site_DatabaseFields
where TABLE_CATALOG + '.' + TABLE_SCHEMA + '.' + TABLE_NAME  = 'JDB.dbo.Invoices'

just as a tip, you can use QUOTENAME

e.g.
SELECT top 10 @Names = COALESCE(@Names +', ', '') + QUOTENAME(COLUMN_NAME)
