Create User cmd problem

I'm writing c# app and I want to add a new login and user to a SS 2005 DB using Stored Procedure.
I've come with the folowing code:

DECLARE @fullName nvarchar(50)
SET @fullName = @lastName+' '+@firstName

SET @cmd = 'CREATE USER '+ @fullName +' FOR LOGIN ' + @shortName;
EXEC sp_executesql @cmd
can someone tell me how can I create a new user with a space between first and a last name ?

I am don't think spaces are allowed .

Try enclosing the fullname with double quotes. That might help.

I've already tried with the " but it did not work either :(

If it's no problem to create that kind of user, using wizard from the context menu on the DB>Security>Users>New user ... - there should be some way of doing the same thing from the code level

Ok I've did some research and came up with an answer to my problem:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. AS
  3. DECLARE @s nvarchar(20)
  4. SET @s = 'jeden dwatrzy'
  5. EXEC sp_adduser test2 ,@s

or with the usage of the transaction
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. AS
  3. BEGIN transaction
  4. DECLARE @s nvarchar(100)
  5. declare @a nvarchar(30)
  6. SET @a = '[jakis nowy]'
  8. SET @s = 'CREATE USER'+ @a +' FOR LOGIN [test2]'
  9. EXEC sp_executesql @s
  10. COMMIT transaction
