Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

At first look, a comma is missing before ‘Amt’:

set @cmd= N’insert into TmpDues ( PatNo, BillDate, ReceiptNo, PayMode<b>,</b>Amt)

But I think it would be easier if you tell us what error message you are getting.

Try printing the contents of @Cmd before executing it, so you can have a look at the actual SQL statement that is going to be sent to the database.

The last line should be “exec (@Cmd)”.
