Good day
I have created a stored procedure that executes another stored procedure from a different database.
This statement is working 100%.
EXEC GES.dbo.pSEL_SyncTechItemLevelByUnitAndItemID

I want to call a stored procedure when selecting a different database name in a select statement and call the select statement in exec.
When I do the following statements I get an error.
SELECT @StrConfig=ConfigValue FROM lConfig WHERE ConfigName = 'GESDBName'
- Selecting the database name (GES)from the table
EXEC @StrConfig.dbo.pSEL_SyncTechItemLevelByUnitAndItemID
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Procedure pSEL_GlobalStocklist, Line 28
Incorrect syntax near '.'.
What's wrong with the Exec statment?

You might use another connection string.

Try like below:
SELECT @StrConfig=ConfigValue FROM lConfig WHERE ConfigName = 'GESDBName'
SET @sql='EXEC ' + @StrConfig + '.dbo.pSEL_SyncTechItemLevelByUnitAndItemID'
EXEC sp_executesql @sql
