Hi There,

I am using SQL Server Reporting Services 2000 and need to create a parameter that will allow a user to enter values separated by a comma (Ex, 12345,6789,54321....). How can this be accomplished? I am suing Visual Studio 2003 Query designer to create the reports.  i found this link which uses the strip function and a stored procedure but i don't have any stored procedures. Is there a way I use this function and then call it from my query? Please see my query and if possible enter the call to the function for me and let me know where in the report designer to copy and paste the function. I thought it would go under the CODE tab in Report Properties but I'm not sure.

I want the parameter to search on mh.mobile_id

Thanks in advance for your help,
R
SELECT   mh.mobile_id, 

	mv.INMARSAT_ISN, 

	mh.SDATE AS Start_Date, 

	to_char(mh.EDATE, 'DD/MM/YYYY') AS End_Date, 

              SSM.FIRST_name || ' ' || ssm.last_name AS Sales_Manager, 

	mv.terminal_group_code, 

	tg.terminal_group_name

FROM      mobile_history mh, 

	CSS_TERM_GROUP_MOBILE_ID_MV mv, mobile m, 			CSC.CSCS_NLR_TERMINAL_GROUPS@DBLINK_CSS_CSSRO tg, 

              CSC.CSCS_SALES_SUPPORT_MANAGERS@DBLINK_CSS_CSSRO ssm

WHERE    SYSDATE BETWEEN sdate AND edate 

	AND inmarsat_imn = m.mobile_id 

	AND mh.mobile_id = m.mobile_id 

	AND mh.MOBILE_ID = mv.INMARSAT_IMN 

	 AND mv.TERMINAL_GROUP_CODE = tg.TERMINAL_GROUP_CODE 

	AND tg.sales_support_manager_id = ssm.support_manager_id

ORDER BY 5 DESC

Hi angellll,

My problem now is where in the visual studio designer to place this function. I have never created a function before so I need to know exactyl where to copy the function to within the designer.

Also, do I now remove my query and turn it into a stored procedure? I am not familiar with this, that is why I need someone to tell me. Clients are always requesting to be able to take advantage of this functionality but up to this point I haven't been able to get it to work. How can I implement this to work properly?

Thanks again,
R

that is ms sql server function... so you just run the CREATE FUNCTION statement once against the sql server database, then it is available.

it's not a requirement, but has quite some advantages.
