I am building a stored procedure this is getting passes a variable table name I.E. (MyTable_34567) into @variableTable where 34567 is going to change every time the Proc. is called by the application.

The Proc must Create a table named MyTable_34567 and give attributes like TableId int identity, name varchar(100) for example.

is there any way to do this inside the stored procedure beside Dynamic SQL

declare @sql varchar(1000)
select @sql ='create table'

select @sql= @sql+ @variableTable+ ' (tableId int identity, name varchar(100)'


I beleive dynamic SQL will slow Porc. down and ths Proc. is going to be a biggie.

Any help you can think of
Thanks Steve"
