sp_executesql in another db

experts,
I think I'm over thinking this.

I've altered this a bit for simplicity. But the point is that we will be getting an alter view statement from a metadata table to execute in another db. It doesn't execute, it just prints the alter statement (which is correct)

What am I doing wrong?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

DECLARE @DB nvarchar(max) = 'Payer'
      DECLARE @Schema nvarchar(max) =  'Reference'
       DECLARE @VW nvarchar(max) = 'Actuarial'
      DECLARE @ExecTargetDB nvarchar(max)  =  @DB + '.sys.sp_executesql '  
      DECLARE @AlterViewSQL nvarchar(max)
                  
            SET @AlterViewSQL = 'SELECT EDWIDSqlTXT ' +  
                        'FROM PHS.ClientAdmin.SecurityBaseView '  +
                        'WHERE DatabaseNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@DB, '''') + ' AND SchemaNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@Schema, '''') + ' AND viewNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@VW, '''') + ' AND HasIDFLG =  ''Y'''
            
            EXEC  @ExecTargetDB @AlterViewSQL

Thanks in advance

Can you run this and provide what is there in @AlterViewSQL?
DECLARE @DB nvarchar(max) = 'Payer'
      DECLARE @Schema nvarchar(max) =  'Reference'
       DECLARE @VW nvarchar(max) = 'Actuarial'
      DECLARE @ExecTargetDB nvarchar(max)  =  @DB + '.sys.sp_executesql '  
      DECLARE @AlterViewSQL nvarchar(max)
                  
            SET @AlterViewSQL = 'SELECT EDWIDSqlTXT ' +   
                        'FROM PHS.ClientAdmin.SecurityBaseView '  + 
                        'WHERE DatabaseNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@DB, '''') + ' AND SchemaNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@Schema, '''') + ' AND viewNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@VW, '''') + ' AND HasIDFLG =  ''Y'''
            
            PRINT @AlterViewSQL

SELECT EDWIDSqlTXT FROM PHS.ClientAdmin.SecurityBaseView WHERE DatabaseNM = 'Payer' AND SchemaNM = 'Reference' AND viewNM = 'Actuarial' AND HasIDFLG =  'Y'


...above is the output

Do you have ALTER VIEW statement in EDWIDSqlTXT column and want to execute that in another db?
Do you have the same view defined already in another db?

check this.
DECLARE @DB nvarchar(max) = 'Payer'
      DECLARE @Schema nvarchar(max) =  'Reference'
       DECLARE @VW nvarchar(max) = 'Actuarial'
      DECLARE @ExecTargetDB nvarchar(max)  =  'TargetDB' -- replace this with actual target db name 
      DECLARE @AlterViewSQL nvarchar(max)
                  
            SELECT @AlterViewSQL = EDWIDSqlTXT    
            FROM PHS.ClientAdmin.SecurityBaseView 
            WHERE DatabaseNM = QUOTENAME(@DB, '') AND SchemaNM = QUOTENAME(@Schema, '') AND viewNM = QUOTENAME(@VW, '') 
			AND HasIDFLG =  'Y'
            
			SELECT @AlterViewSQL = 'USE ' + @ExecTargetDB + '; ' + @AlterViewSQL
			EXEC @AlterViewSQL

This worked. I tried using an Output parameter. I don't think this was the most efficient means of doing this by any means, but it does give the desired output.
                  Thank you very much for the assistance. It is very much appreciated.

                  declare @sql nvarchar(max)
                  DECLARE @DB nvarchar(max) = 'Payer'
                  DECLARE @Schema nvarchar(max) =  'Reference'
                   DECLARE @VW nvarchar(max) = 'Actuarial'
                  DECLARE @ExecTargetDB nvarchar(max)  =  @DB + '.sys.sp_executesql '  
       

         declare @AlterViewSQL nvarchar(max) = 'SELECT @sql=EDWIDSqlTXT ' +  
                        'FROM EDWAdmin.ClientAdmin.SecurityBaseView '  +
                        'WHERE DatabaseNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@DB, '''') + ' AND SchemaNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@Schema, '''') + ' AND viewNM = ' + QUOTENAME(@VW, '''') + ' AND HasEDWIDFLG =  ''Y'''
           

         DECLARE @ParamDefinition NVARCHAR(max)
       SET @ParamDefinition = N'@sql nvarchar(max) OUTPUT' --parameter definition (list input and output parameters and the order)
       EXEC sp_executesql @AlterViewSQL, @ParamDefinition, @sql OUTPUT
                 
             EXEC sp_executesql @AlterViewSQL, @ParamDefinition, @sql OUTPUT
           
                     eXEC @ExecTargetDB @sql
