Accessing SQL variables within"WITH" statement

Hi
I'm trying to add an input variable (part_number) to my SQL Stored Proc but it seems to ignore the value I pass into the Stored Proc.

The only odd thing with the Stored Proc is that it uses the "WITH" convention to optimise it, and I'm wondering if you have to access a variable differently when used within the "WITH" convention? thanks

ha ha - good point, I'm just trying to trim-down the query now to the pertinent code, but the issue is that now the parameter IS being recognised, so I'm trying to determine from the removed code as to what could be causing the parameter to be blocked.

You do realize we have no idea what you are talking about, right?  

If you want help, try posting your query and explain what you are trying to achieve.

Thanks for the comments - after cleaning-up my query in prep. for posting it here, my variable is now functioning as expected, I'm not sure exactly what fixed it but it's now working.
In relation to this however, I need to be able to pass-in multiple values as in a SQL "IN" query, for example;
instead of simply using a single value-

WHERE @StockNumber = 'ABC'

I'd like to be able to do:

WHERE @StockNumber IN ('ABC','123','XYZ')

- is this possible?
Thanks!

Yes.  There are a number of ways (from good to bad):
1. Table-Valued parameters.
2. Xml
3. Delimted string.
4. Dynamic SQL.
