Hi,

I guess U have the class derived from CRecordSet to handle the table "item_table". Let that class name be CMyTable.

Then to get the resultant record set with specified values, u can use the members of CRecordSet.
use m_strSort for arranging and m_strFilter for setting the where condition. In the above case, it may be as

CMyTable cItemTable;
cItemTable.m_strSort = "item_date";
cItemTable.m_strFilter = "item_id = 33";
if(cItemTable.IsOpen())
  cItemTable.Close();
cItemTable.Open();
//Now cItemTable's entry for item_name will have the name corresponding to item_id = 33.

If more than one records are there with item_id = 33, then the resultant recordset after opening the table will have all the qualified entries. U may have to use a loop checking for IsBOF() or IsEOF() functions.

If still want to execute the SQL queries itself, then u can use ExecuteSQL(...) of CDatabase after forming the query.

Try it out.

There are a few things you need to do before all of this will work, though.

1) Database should be registered in your ODBC administrator.
2) You should have created a class for the CRecordset in the class wizard binding it to your database table.

3) If you're issuing this query more than once with different criteria, you will need a slightly different approach (using parameters in the query)

4) If you're connecting more than one CRecordset to a database then you should create a CDatabase connection and attach each CRecordset to it using its address.

You could do something like this.

CDatabase* dbData;
CRecordset* rsData;
dbData = new CDatabase();
dbData->OpenEx(_T("DSN=OdbcName;UID=UserId;PWD=pass");

CString strSql;
CString strItemName;
strSql = "select item_name from item_table where item_id=33 order by item_date desc"

rsData = new CRecordset(dbData);
rsData->Open(AFX_DB_USE_DEFAULT_TYPE, strSql);

while(!rsData->IsEOF())
{    
   rsData->GetFieldValue((short)0, strItemName);
   rsData->MoveNext();
}
rsData->Close();
delete rsData;
delete dbData;

Hope helps

aponcealbuerne, that's a very rough technique and is of limited scope (not reusable).  The user would always have to know/memorize the schema of the database in order to write the code.  I wouldn't imagine using it in production code HOWEVER, it looks as if it would be OK for experimental code.  

I'm not dogging it for raw functionality, though.

With the Class Wizard, you can choose to bind the columns you need and the framework handles the data types and data transfers.

There are a few other 'goodies' that happen in the database when you derive your class FROM a CRecordset (such as the SQL_PREPARE that happens when you parameterize the CRecordset).

Triskelion, well it's true what you said, of course you can use class wizard to do so, and I know also about CRecordset methods, but abalkur asked an specific question with a static sql query, I'm giving him only a tip of how he could solve the problem.

You're right.
I'm making assumptions about the nature and future use of the query.
