Pass a variable as a section name

I'm trying to display a section by passing the name as a variable but get the following error:

 

Liquid error: Error in tag 'section' - '{{showsect1}}' is not a valid section type

 

I'm using the following two pieces of code. This is at the top (to concatenate the product sku with "section1", eg "MySKUsection1)":

{%- assign sect1= "section1" -%}

{% capture showsect1 %}
{{ current_variant.sku }}{{ sect1 }}
{% endcapture %}

 

This where I want to open the section on a page:

 

<div class="page-width">
{% section '{{showsect1}}' %}
</div>

 

I've used <SPAN> to check the output and it's correct.  If I hard code and pass section manually it also works {% section 'mysectionname' %}

 

I'm guessing it's a problem passing showsect1 as a variable, any ideas greatly appreciated, i've been looking at this for 4 hours :(

Hi @dash99 

Sorry but you cant do this, because you are trying to add section in side other section that cant possible. We can not add section inside other section.
