Dynamic! Dynamic!

Dynamic is one of my favorite search words. It is the opposite of “static”. A lot of time, SQL statements requires static input, such as column name and table name in SELECT.  However, Dynamic SQL gives a way to overcome this requirement.  This post I will share with you other two usages of ‘dynamic’.

I got this very good post explains in great detail about how to solve my problem.
