I am able to call the following command line program from T-SQL
if I hard code the arguments like this

!!C:\REPORT.EXE 1874 21665339


However, I am not able to pass in T-SQL variables.

DECLARE @PAT INT
DECLARE @ORD INT
SET @PAT = 1874
SET @ORD = 21665339
!!C:\REPORT.EXE @PAT @ORD


Can someone please tell me how to do this?

Thank you

Are you using xp_cmdshell to run the command line program from T-SQL with hardcoded arguments?

I think you have to use SETVAR for this; I don't know of a way to force the substitution of T-SQL variables when invoking the system command. If you are able to use SETVAR, it would be something like this:
:setvar mydir "C:\Temp"
!!dir $(mydir)
