Is it possible to execute a dynamically created SQL statement that is stored in a variable in a regular SQL statement? (I'm considering creating a function but I thought I'd find out just in case.)

I have a tedious Statement that would be better created dynamically rather than manually. I'd like to use it in as a subquery perhaps.

Suppose I had a statement such as (just a simple example i suppose)

SET @SQLstr = 'SELECT UPPER(FName) FROM Person'

Of course something that simple i could just write out but i assume any type of complex string operation would be same regardless.
Thanks
