Reply with quote

Hi,
I need to define a cursor as follows:
SELECT A.name,A.CDE,A.city FROM table A WHERE A.CDE = CODEX and City IN ( subquery)

Is it possible to declare cursor one time and pass the value using variable in the above query. Ex: In above example CODEX is my variable name. I want to retrieve records depending on values in above varible which keeps on changing in one program and rest query remains same.


Regards,
Krunal

From what I understand, the cursor for a value of a specific CODEX will return all rows that match. For another value of CODEX, you will need to close the cursor, change the CODEX value and then reopen the cursor.

I may be off here, but don't you use a colon to denote a WS variable?
As in
SELECT A.name,A.CDE,A.city FROM table A WHERE A.CDE = :CODEX and City IN ( subquery)
where CODEX is defined in working storage....

This is the normal way to provide run-time values to a query. . .

I must be missing something. . . icon_confused.gif
