SQL Server: sp_add_job – parameter passing

I am sure there are other SQL procedures that take parameters the same way, but I recently have been dealing with sp_add_job. You can call the procedure and pass in parameters

sp_add_job @job_name = ‘My Job Name’

for an example. But..you cannot do this

DECLARE @test AS VARCHAR(50)

SET @test = ‘ Test ‘

sp_add_job @job_name = ‘My Job Name’ + @test

You will get an error, because you cannot concatonate a string while passing it in as a parameter. What you need to do is this.

DECLARE @test AS VARCHAR(50)

SET @test = ‘My Job Name Test’

sp_add_job @job_name = @test

* Note there are other params you need to pass to the procedure, but I just passed the one for example’s sake
