Hi Expert,

Please help me find out the best solution for my query. I have dynamic sql with coalesce in where clause but it did not function well.

SET @sql = 'SELECT * FROM tbl1 WHERE ID = COALESCE(''' + @ID + ''', ID)'
EXEC(@sql)

and when I run this SP and i call

Exec sp_GetID @ID  = null,

it did not return a value.

But when i tried something like this

SELECT * FROM tbl1 WHERE ID = COALESCE(@ID , ID)

it works fine as expected.
