Hi, running sql server 2005 stored procedure using a while loop, with if else statement, i try to populate a temporary returnable table with values for a booking, slotid, time and username/availability.

However, despite the correct results returning, i get the following error message

Msg 512, Level 16, State 1, Procedure test2, Line 63
Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

What could be wrong?

Thanks

Julia

>Subquery returned more than 1 value.
Here are your sub-queries.  Run both of them to see if one returns more than one record, then fix.

select slotID from slotavailability Where @Counter in (Select SlotID from slotavailability where machineID = @machineID and availabilityid = 1))) is

Select SlotID from slotavailability where machineID = @machineID and availabilityid = 1

Can you simplify your query to something like:
WHILE
	(Select Max (sa.SlotID)
	From SlotAvailability as sa join AvailabilityType as at on sa.availabilityid = at.availabilityID
	WHERE sa.MachineID = @MachineID and sa.availabilityid = 1) >= @counter
		
		Begin
 
--checks to see if the counter matches a slotId that exists for the selected machine, or null in this case
--else moves on to the next slotID before any processing gets done.
		If 
			(
			select slotID
			from slotavailability
			Where SlotID = @Counter and machineID = @machineID and availabilityid = 1) is null
 
 
			Begin
			SET @Counter = @Counter + 1
 
			End
 
		Else
 
			Begin
			Set @SlotTimeCounter	= (select slottime	from slot where slotId = @Counter)
 
			Insert Into @DateResults
			Values (@Counter,@SlotTimeCounter, 'Available')
			
			
	
 
 
			SET @Counter = @Counter + 1
 
		
			End
		END
 
	END

thanks guys, This helped me.  The select statement in question was returning multiple slotID's.  It had to trim the query as you selected and add an an additional and slotID = @counter statement
