"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No parameters are allowed for views. You can create an inline table-valued function instead.

IF OBJECT_ID('Sales.fn_FilteredExtension', 'IF') IS NOT NULL
DROP FUNCTION Sales.fn_FilteredExtension;
CREATE FUNCTION Sales.fn_FilteredExtension
@lowqty AS SMALLINT, 
@highqty AS SMALLINT
RETURNS TABLE AS RETURN  --********************
(SELECT orderid, unitprice, qty
FROM Sales.OrderDetails
WHERE qty BETWEEN @lowqty AND @highqty);

And to use it:
SELECT orderid, unitprice, qty FROM Sales.fn_FilteredExtension (10,20);

Open in new window

An inline table-valued functions is closest substitute for parameterized views (which cannot be done).

No, you can't pass parameters to a View but you can use filters by adding a WHERE clause:
WHERE Field1 = @Var1 AND Field2 = @Var2
