Dear Experts,

I have a code that looks like this:

UPDATE Categories
SET CategoryPicture =
      (SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(BULK N'C:\Temp\Beverages.jpg', SINGLE_BLOB) AS CategoryImage)
WHERE CategoryID = 1

From my stored procedure, i want to replace 'C:\Temp\Beverages.jpg' with a variable name @x1 so that i can pass @x1 as a paramater each time CategoryID changes.

Please help with necessary codes or alternatives.

Thank you.
