Hello,

Is there a way to print the sql query in stored procedure  which is just executed :

 UPDATE [dbo].[Dtable]
            SET
                  [Name]=CAST(@Name AS  Nvarchar(MAX)),            
              [Title]=CAST(@Title AS  Nvarchar(10)),                        
                  [Field]= CAST(@Field AS  varchar(50)),             
                  [Practice]=CAST(@Practice AS  nvarchar(50)),
                  [Tel_1]=  CAST(@Tel_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Tel_2]=CAST(@Tel_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Mob]=CAST(@Mob AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Fax]=CAST(@Fax AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Address_1]=CAST(@Address_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Address_2]=CAST(@Address_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [PostCode]=      CAST(@PostCode AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Sec]=CAST(@Sec AS Nvarchar(50)),
                  [Comments]      =CAST(@Comments AS Nvarchar(50))
          WHERE [Dtable_UID] =@Dtable_UID

If you just want a one off to see what is going to the database, use the SQL Tracing tool which is called SQL Server Profiler. Hopefully it was installed.

When you run it, create a new trace and then in the second tab, choose Show All Columns, and then scroll across the the database name, click the column heading and in the "Like", expand it and put in your database name.

Then run the trace. Then in your application, you can run the bit that executes your stored procedure and once you've done it, stop the trace.

Then use the Find tool and look for your stored procedure name and you'll see what it was executed with.

Well, you need to use copy the UPDATE command and send it to PRINT before execute it:
CREATE PROC sp_MySP (@Name...)
AS

PRINT 'UPDATE [dbo].[Dtable]
             SET 
                   [Name]=CAST(@Name AS  Nvarchar(MAX)),             
               [Title]=CAST(@Title AS  Nvarchar(10)),                        
                   [Field]= CAST(@Field AS  varchar(50)),             
                   [Practice]=CAST(@Practice AS  nvarchar(50)),
                   [Tel_1]=  CAST(@Tel_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Tel_2]=CAST(@Tel_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Mob]=CAST(@Mob AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Fax]=CAST(@Fax AS Nvarchar(50)),

                   [Address_2]=CAST(@Address_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [PostCode]=      CAST(@PostCode AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Sec]=CAST(@Sec AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Comments]      =CAST(@Comments AS Nvarchar(50))
           WHERE [Dtable_UID] =@Dtable_UID '

                   [Tel_1]=  CAST(@Tel_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Tel_2]=CAST(@Tel_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Mob]=CAST(@Mob AS Nvarchar(50)),

                   [Address_1]=CAST(@Address_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [Address_2]=CAST(@Address_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                   [PostCode]=      CAST(@PostCode AS Nvarchar(50)),

If instead of PRINT to screen you want to insert into another, then you must do it as you presented, with the INSERT command but remove the PRINT:
INSERT INTO tblDEBUG (SQL) 
VALUES ('UPDATE [dbo].[Dtable]
              SET 
                    [Name]=CAST(@Name AS  Nvarchar(MAX)),             
                [Title]=CAST(@Title AS  Nvarchar(10)),                        
                    [Field]= CAST(@Field AS  varchar(50)),             
                    [Practice]=CAST(@Practice AS  nvarchar(50)),
                    [Tel_1]=  CAST(@Tel_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Tel_2]=CAST(@Tel_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Mob]=CAST(@Mob AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Fax]=CAST(@Fax AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Address_1]=CAST(@Address_1 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Address_2]=CAST(@Address_2 AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [PostCode]= CAST(@PostCode AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Sec]=CAST(@Sec AS Nvarchar(50)),
                    [Comments]=CAST(@Comments AS Nvarchar(50))
            WHERE [Dtable_UID] =@Dtable_UID ')

Assuming you have the tblDebug then:

insert into tblDebug (myQueryColumn) values('UPDATE [dbo].[Dtable]
             SET 
                   [Name]=CAST(''' + @Name + ''' AS  Nvarchar(MAX)),             

.... 

           WHERE [Dtable_UID] =@Dtable_UID ')

Open in new window


This way you will see the update statement with the data. You'll need to fill in the other lines the same way. You may have to do some type conversions in there.

          WHERE [Dtable_UID] =@Dtable_UID

no values of @ are inserted

You'll need to cast your int as nvarchar() and the date will need converting.

So something like:

insert into tblDebug (myQueryColumn) values('UPDATE [dbo].[Dtable]
             SET 
                   [Name]=CAST(''' + @Name + ''' AS  Nvarchar(MAX)),
                   [myNumber] = cast(''' + cast(@myNumber as nvarchar(10)) + ''' as nvarchar(10)),
                   [myDate] = cast(''' + cast(@mydate as nvarchar(25)) + ''' as nvarchar(25)),
...


           WHERE [Dtable_UID] =@Dtable_UID ')

Open in new window


Something like that? If you need more help, you may need to post another question but if/when you do, try and provide some example data of what you have and what you expect.

They both depend on the initial data types of the variables. I will assume @Date is a datetime. If so, and you want the whole datetime string then you'll need a bigger varchar than 20 as it will be in the form:

yyyy-mm-dd hh:mi:ss.mmm

which is 23 chars, so 25 is better. If you only really want to capture the date then you can truncate the time. I'll assume you want the full datetime.

CAST('''+ convert(nvarchar(25), @date, 121) + '''  AS  varchar(25)),
CAST('''+ cast(@Year_Ref as nvarchar(4)) +'''  AS INTEGER),
