Variable Database Name in Stored Procedures

P: 12
I am trying to create a stored procedure that runs a smaller query first to determine the database to run the second query on. Below is a sample query that is similar to what I would be doing. I'm not interested in creating new Stored Procedures as their are hundreds that are like this so I don't want to write new statements like...

EXEC( "Select * from " + @TableName + " where " + CAST(@Param1 as varchar) +
" = " + @Param2

as that would be too many queries to update. Any thoughts?


CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.stored_procedure_name

DECLARE @database varchar(50)
SET @database = (SELECT * FROM smc_web.currentDatabase)


set nocount on
select * from (@database).dbo.table_name
