I have the following code that is pivoting a previous table. The table has two quarters, 2012Q2 and 2012Q3 (these will eventually change so that's why they are parameters at the moment). However, when I run the code, I get "Incorrect syntax near 'Q3'" which is the value of @SimQuarter. When I run the dynamic SQL code without the parameters (actual column names and PERIOD='2012Q3'), it runs just fine. What am I missing?? Any help will be appreciated!

	declare @HistQtr nvarchar(7)
	set @HistQtr='2012Q2'
	declare @SimQuarter nvarchar(7)
	declare @SQL_UW nvarchar(max)

	IF OBJECT_ID('AnalyticsV2.CM.CorrelationData_UW', 'U') IS NOT NULL
		DROP TABLE AnalyticsV2.CM.CorrelationData_UW;

        set @SimQuarter=(case when @HistQtr like '%Q1%' then left(@HistQtr,4)+'Q2'
			      when @HistQtr like '%Q2%' then left(@HistQtr,4)+'Q3'
			      when @HistQtr like '%Q3%' then left(@HistQtr,4)+'Q4'
			      else cast((cast(left(@HistQtr,4) as float)+1) as nvarchar(5)) +'Q1' end)	
        set @SQL_UW = 'select SIMULATION,' + @colNames +' 
		into AnalyticsV2.CM.CorrelationData_UW
	        from ( select SIMULATION, replace(PRODUCT,''_'','' '') as PRODUCT, Product_Description, Value
		from AnalyticsV2.CM.CorrelationData
		where Product_Description=''UW'' and PERIOD='+@SimQuarter+' ) d
		    for PRODUCT in (' + @colNames+ ')
		) piv'
	exec sp_executesql @SQL_UW

Change the line that starts with where to:
where Product_Description=''UW'' and PERIOD='''+@SimQuarter+''' ) d
