I have a table and data stored as follows

ID          MIN          MAX                    VALUE
1           0              15                              25
1           16            30                              50
1           31            45                              75
1           46           300                            100

I have a value called x

x = 35

Now I need to find out a way to find that x is basically in which slot. I'm not using SQL statesments in my code. Only storedprocudures.

please let me know the best way it.

Currently what I did was

I have a function and I'm passing the x value to it and there I'm getting those records into a recordset and in a for loop I'm checking the no is exist or not.

I need a better way of doing it

create function dbo.getslot ( @x int )
returns int
as
  return (select value from yourtable where @x between [MIN] and [MAX])


and you can use it like this:

select * from dbo.getslot(35)
