How to Detect True Value in SQL statement written In VC++

Hello Experts,

I need your advice a bit. I wrote a program in VC++ which used ODBC driver to connect database to SQL Server. However, I need to write a select statement to select only the item that is true. Eg is shown below :

DATABASENAME : TBLITEMCODE
FldItemCode     String (Database field In SQLSERVER)
Check           Boolean (Database field In SQLSERVER)

My SELECT statement (to select only for Check = True) is shown as below :

strcpy(statement, "SELECT * FROM TBLITEMCODE WHERE CHECK = *<what should I put here for true value> ")

* if true/false value please let me know what is the value

Yur help will be much appreciated

Your SQL statement should be:

a) For True values
SELECT * FROM TBLITEMCODE WHERE CHECK

b) For False values
SELECT * FROM TBLITEMCODE WHERE NOT CHECK

Thanks

In above condition you will have to from the dynamic SQL statement using sprintf. Depending upon your condition you can from the SQL statement as follows

if ( condition == TRUE)
{
 sprintf (szDynamicSQl ,"SELECT * FROM TLITEMCODE WHERE CHECK = TRUE" );
}
else
{
 sprintf (szDynamicSQl ,"SELECT * FROM TLITEMCODE WHERE CHECK = FALSE" );
}

By using direct TRUE or FALSE in the SQL statement, SQL server will take appropriate value for it. Generaly TRUE is any non zero value and FALSE is always ZERO.
 
You can open the database and can check, what values are being stored in database for TRUE and FALSE.

I hope this will clear your doubt.

Hello pagladasu,

I know what u r saying but the problem is what is the logic value I should put to replace the TRU/FALSE value. In SQL server, data is record as -1(True) and 0(False). I did follow it but unfortunately, it didn't give me a right record. As u can see from below :

strcpy(statement, "SELECT * FROM tblItemCode WHERE Check = -1) // for true value
LPCSTR strSQL = statement
if SQL_SUCCESS == (rc = ::SQLPrepare(...etc)
  if SQL_SUCCESS == (rc = :SQLExecute(...etc)
    if (rc == SQL_SUCCESS)
      SQLBindCol(hstmt, 2,  <what data type should use here>, &value, 0, &cb)
   }
}
}

I didn't get the right value for this particular field...Yur help will be much appreciate. TQ
Derrick

Did you try SQL_INT? If it hasn't worked, you may try SQL_TINYINT.
