Default Dynamic Table Name in SQL Query

Hi,

I am working with stored procedures I have to get the table name from an input variable. somehow the stored procedure doesn't seem to be working. The syntax I am using is

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.SearchDynamicTable
(@v_TableName nvarchar(200))
AS
SET NOCOUNT OFF
DECLARE @sqlStatement varchar(300)

SELECT @sqlStatement = "SELECT * FROM " + @v_TableName

SET NOCOUNT ON
EXEC(@sqlStatement)
GO

but When I call the procedure with input parameter "contact_info" it gives the error that the syntax is wrong near FROMcontact_info. I guess the stored procedure is just concatenating the v_TableName with FROM clause.

Can someone tell me the correct way of writing such stored procedure?


Thanks

Your doing it right, you just need to make sure there is a space after "FROM" before the end speech mark, i.e. "FROM ".
