To use a dynamic table name in a SQL Server SELECT statement, you can utilize dynamic SQL using the
sp_executesql statement. Here's an example of how you can achieve it:
DECLARE @tableName NVARCHAR(50) DECLARE @sql NVARCHAR(MAX) -- Get the dynamic table name SET @tableName = 'PM' + CAST((SELECT MAX(col1) FROM table1) AS NVARCHAR(50)) -- Construct the dynamic SQL statement SET @sql = 'SELECT * FROM ' + QUOTENAME(@tableName) -- Execute the dynamic SQL EXEC sp_executesql @sql
In the above example,
@tableName is the variable that holds the dynamic table name. You can set it by concatenating the 'PM' prefix with the value retrieved from the
The dynamic SQL statement is constructed by concatenating the 'SELECT * FROM ' with the dynamic table name using
QUOTENAME function to properly handle any special characters in the table name.
Finally, the dynamic SQL statement is executed using
sp_executesql to retrieve the data from the dynamic table.
Make sure to adjust the table and column names to match your actual schema. Additionally, keep in mind that dynamic SQL can introduce security risks like SQL injection, so it's important to validate and sanitize the input appropriately.
