My sql version is

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)

```
/* Run this part only once */
--==========================================================
-- Create and populate a Tally table
--==========================================================
--===== Conditionally drop
IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.Tally') IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE dbo.Tally
--===== Create and populate the Tally table on the fly

-- drop and create sample table
IF OBJECT_ID('dbo.date256') IS NOT NULL
DROP TABLE dbo.date256

Starting procedure

while @N < 141
begin -------- loop start
select @sql = 'update date256 set result = ' + sqlcmd
from date256
where N= @N
--print @sql
exec (@sql)
/*
when the counter N reaches 16
@sql will have syntax error
will go to catch block and won't come back
i want it to come back and execute
the rest of the following lines
and loop again untill the loop dies
after 140 iteration
*/
set @N = @N +1
end -- loop ends
END TRY

Print
'Please ignore the error and go back
from where you have come and execute
the rest of the codes. Thnaks'

```

**What I want**

I want to learn if it is possible to ignore syntax error

and continue executing back and forth

between Try and Catch block

If you run the above procedure 99 times

then there will be no error and the result

will be as under

N | sqlcmd | result |
