Re: Simply stored proc works OK but is it correct syntax ?

CrewID is a string. But that is really the question. I could not get it to work without the quotes.

Say the crewID was "AB01". I was getting error message 'column "AB01" does not exist'. Once I put the quotes around it in the SET statement, it began to work. I just wasnt sure if there was a better way of doing it.

Looking at the slightly longer query which includes a decimal value (wages)..

SET @crewID = CONCAT('"', p_crewID, '"');
SET @reference = CONCAT('"', p_reference, '"');
SET @wages = CONCAT('"', p_wages, '"'); // decimal value.

SET @s = CONCAT("INSERT INTO ", @wagesYear, "(crewID, reference, wages) VALUES (", @crewID, ",", @reference, ",", @wages, ")");

The above sql works as expected but seems quite long winded to me. Perhaps there is a way of bypassing the SET statements altogether and use the parameters (p_values) within the CONCAT statement ??
