Sprocs and Views and UDFs all the time. No dynamic SQL ever. Whenever I hear
those words, I reach for my Glock :) Admittedly, there are very rare
occasions when dynamic SQL is the only way to go, but those occasions are
extremely rare. More often than not, it's used because people either don't
know how to program TSQL or because they haven't been shown how easy SQL
injection is.
