Hello, is there any way to use a variable (of type time) in the statement of creating an event?


set @time = '09:00';

create event myevent schedule start time @time every 5 minutes handler begin end;


I tried even with execute immediate without success!!

This should work with EXECUTE IMMEDIATE when specifying the variable as a literal value, AFAIK. What exactly have you tried?

I am trying to execute this block:


declare @time1 time;

set @time1 = '09:00';

execute immediate ('create event SyncPrAtH schedule start time ''' + convert(varchar(5), @time1) + ''' every 3 minutes handler');


select * from dummy;

You have to include the whole CREATE EVENT statement including the handler block as argument to EXECUTE IMMEDIATE.

Thank you
