Hi,

I need to get the single row for a company. Company has participated in more than one event.

I pass EventCode and Event year to this view1, has following details
CompanyName          EventCd                 iShowYear           Status
ABC                            SAA                       2004                    SOLD
ABC                            SAA                       2006                    SOLD
ABC                            SJJ                         2007                    SOLD
ABC                            SHJ                        2008                    HOLD

Let say i pass EventCd SAA and Event Year 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 (list box selection)
Result should be
CompanyName  EventCd    Status2004        Status2005        Status2006        Status2007          Status2008
ABC                    SAA            SOLD                    0                     SOLD                     0                          0


i try to use the following query but during each while loop it selects the whole set i.e 5 times selecting all the records. "Status" +@Year1 also giving me the error.
Could anyone help me?

Thank you.

DECLARE @year1 int, @year2 int, @statusyear char(10)


SET @YEAR1 = YEAR(GETDATE())-4
SET @YEAR2 = YEAR(GETDATE())+3

WHILE (@YEAR1 <= @YEAR2)
Select  vchCompanyName, iOWNERID, vchPhonenumber, vchEmailAddress, chCountryDesc,

max(ISNULL((CASE
         WHEN CHorderlinestatus='C' AND iShowYear=@YEAR1 THEN 'SOLD'
         WHEN CHorderlinestatus='B' AND iShowYear=@YEAR1 THEN 'HOLD'
         END
         ), 0)) AS Status_year_@YEAR1

Group BY vchCompanyName, iOWNERID, vchPhonenumber, vchEmailAddress, chCountryDesc, chShowCd, iShowYear

SET @YEAR1 = @YEAR1 +1
END

Do not include the @ sign as part of a column name. It is  a reserved character for variables.
so change AS Status_year_@YEAR1 to AS Status_year_YEAR1
