Help with SQL using C# and DataGrid...

At the minute I have a sql query extracting info from an oracle table, and the sql  looks like this:

string openSql = "SELECT DISTINCT HGR6.CALL_REQ.PERSID, HGR6.CALL_REQ.REF_NUM, HGR6.CALL_REQ.STATUS, HGR6.CALL_REQ.ASSIGNEE, HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE FROM HGR6.CALL_REQ WHERE HGR6.CALL_REQ.GROUP_ID='" + teamID + "'  AND (HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE >= '" + startSeconds.TotalSeconds+"') AND (HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE <= '"+endSeconds.TotalSeconds+"')AND HGR6.CALL_REQ.STATUS <> 'CL' AND HGR6.CALL_REQ.PARENT IS NULL";

At the minute I am binding the results to a datagrid in asp.net, the resulting table looks like this:

PERSID                REF_NUM          STATUS          ASSIGNEE            OPEN_DATE
cr:160709287     5992436               RIP                 55864293           1195494904
cr:160814117     5999741               ESC                12345678          1195573843
cr:160878008     6004760               ESC                 73773767        1195600721
cr:160885707     6005207              ESC                                           1195610604

Now, the assignee here is sometimes blank - that is ok.  But where the assignee is not blank, the assignee is an ID, I need to obtain the persons name from another table using SQL.
Here is the SQL I need to use:

string assigneeSql = "SELECT HGR6.C_LAST_NAME, HGR6.C_FIRST_NAME FROM HGR6.CTCT WHERE HGR6.ID =  '  assignne from the list '   ";

is there a way to do this ALL IN ONE SQL statement so it will do this BEFORE I bind it to the Datagrid?

Thanks

problem is you want the assingee name instead of his ID.

solution is :
select ......, case asigneeID when NOT NULL then B.C_LAST_NAME, B.C_FIRST_NAME...........
FROM HGR6.CALL_REQ as A Join HGR6.CTCT as B on A.ASSIGNEE = B.ID

In short, use join and case advantages.

hi,
use a left join,something like this (not tested; might have a typo)

string openSql = "SELECT DISTINCT HGR6.CALL_REQ.PERSID, HGR6.CALL_REQ.REF_NUM, HGR6.CALL_REQ.STATUS, HGR6.CALL_REQ.ASSIGNEE, HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE,HGR6.CTCT.C_LAST_NAME, HGR6.CTCT.C_FIRST_NAME FROM HGR6.CALL_REQ
LEFT JOIN HGR6.CTCT ON HGR6.CALL_REQ.ASSIGNEE=HGR6.CTCT.ID
WHERE HGR6.CALL_REQ.GROUP_ID='" + teamID + "'  AND (HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE >= '" + startSeconds.TotalSeconds+"') AND (HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE <= '"+endSeconds.TotalSeconds+"')AND HGR6.CALL_REQ.STATUS <> 'CL' AND HGR6.CALL_REQ.PARENT IS NULL";

Getting an error now:
Exception Details: System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException: ERROR [42000] [Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]ORA-00936: missing expression


this is the sql executed:

"SELECT DISTINCT HGR6.CALL_REQ.PERSID, HGR6.CALL_REQ.REF_NUM, HGR6.CALL_REQ.STATUS, CASE HGR6.CALL_REQ.ASSIGNEE when NOT NULL then B.C_LAST_NAME, B.C_FIRST_NAME, HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE FROM HGR6.CALL_REQ as A Join HGR6.CTCT as B on A.ASSIGNEE = B.ID WHERE HGR6.CALL_REQ.GROUP_ID='49540961'  AND (HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE >= '1193896800') AND (HGR6.CALL_REQ.OPEN_DATE <= '1195711200')AND HGR6.CALL_REQ.STATUS <> 'CL' AND HGR6.CALL_REQ.PARENT IS NULL"


any ideas?

you forgot to put a END in the case.

syntax should be
case ......
when ......... then .........
when ........ then .......
else
............
end
