I created a cursor that moves through a table to retrieve a user's name.
When I open this cursor, I create a variable to store the fetched name to use within the BEGIN/END statements to create a login, user, and role.
I'm getting an 'incorrect syntax' error at the variable. For example ..
CREATE LOGIN @NAME WITH PASSWORD 'password'
I've done a bit of research online and found that you cannot use variables to create logins and the like. One person suggested a stored procedure or dynamic SQL, whereas another pointed out that you shouldn't use a stored procedure and dynamic SQL is best.
My dilemma is this - I thought I was using dynamic SQL. Could I get an example or further explanation?
