You're more familiar with what exactly you are doing. Typically, names aren't allowed to start with a digit. My experience with Access (via OleDb) is that question marks (?) are preferred, but that names can be used if they're kept in order (as yours are). I have also only see a colon (:) used for parameter names in Oracle.
I was just guessing, based on the fact that there would generally be a comma separator in such expressions. However, from the further messages it seems that OP had not checked the documentation for proper format of the command.
Hello experts. I have noticed something that is unfamiliar to me in my database knowledge.
My application creates tables and inserts initial values into them based on user specifications. More than two tables are created in the process. The table creation and inserts are done within a transaction. When an error occurs, the transaction is rolled back.
I just noticed that when the transaction is rolled back, all inserts are erased as expected. However, the tables created within the transaction are not dropped from the database. This is unusual to me. I don't know if I am missing something or that is how it happens with SQL server (2008 R2).
Is there any way the tables can be dropped without specifying them one at a time in code? Please help.

Difference between function and SP
Procedure can return zero or n values whereas function can return one value which is mandatory.
Procedures can have input/output parameters for it whereas functions can have only input parameters.
Procedure allows selectas well as DML statement in it whereas function allows only select statement in it.
Functions can be called fromprocedure whereas procedures cannot be called fromfunction.
Exception can be handled by try-catch block in a procedure whereas try-catch block cannot be used in a function.
