Hi guys,

Help me out. I have very simple query inside S.P, Here it is

Update Mytable
Set Pay = (select top 1 'Payer'+' '+e.Payerid
from Payer e
where = @id)
where = @id

I am getting (Payer) in resule it should be (Payer 12 or Payer so on)

Is any one help me why i am not getting value. Data type of fild is varchar(50).

Thank You.

What do you get when you run the inner query?
select top 1 'Payer'+' '+e.Payerid
from Payer e
where = @id
