Hi

Instead of hard coding I'm adding the username from the parameter and its creating another column.

before this query worked if I set the @p_user='prodaa3'

I'm getting this error

"Invalid column name'prodaa3'. [Database Vendor Code 207]"

declare
@p_year int,
@p_business_segment_id varchar(1000),
@p_user varchar(20)

set @p_user ={?@p_user}
SET @p_business_segment_id ={?@p_business_segment_id}
set @p_year ={?@p_year}
set @p_business_segment_id = dbo.ufnParamOrNull(@p_business_segment_id)



select ba_id, bu_id, bg_id, lob_id, pc_id
into #userbgs
from user_bgs
where award_year = @p_year and cycle = 12 and [user_name] = @p_user
 and ba_id = (Case When @p_business_segment_id is null Then ba_id Else  @p_business_segment_id  End)

I have looked into the issue and i have to add ' in the parameter values.so in the paramter i have to enter 'prodaa3'.

Is there a way to combine /concatenate a string and a parameter value?

SET @p_user = " ' " + {?@p_user} + " ' "

>set @p_user ={?@p_user}
What's the purpose of the {? } ?  

I'm not familiar with this, and normally @p_user would be passed into the Stored Proc as a parameter.  Also, T-SQL does not have any abilities to prompt the user for a value such as SET @p_user = 'Enter a user id here'

>Is there a way to combine /concatenate a string and a parameter value?
Yes. Like...

SET @some_string = @some_string + @some_other_string
or
SET @some_string = @some_string + ''' + @some_other_string + '''

set@p_user ={?@p_user} is coming from crystal reports

?@p_user = paramter

if enter in the parameter  prodaa3 it looks for a column and throws an error however if I enter 'prodaa3' in the parameter it works

So I was wondering if there is a way to add ' to the beginning of the parameter value and the end as well so the user should only enter

prodaa3 and then the system does the concatenate and puts this result into @p_user

so @p_user would be equal to 'prodaa3'

Yes, it would be four single-quote characters ( I had three in the previous example .. my bad)
SET @some_string = @some_string + '''' + @some_other_string + ''''

SELECT 'WHERE fruit_type = ' + '''' + 'banana' + ''''
