hello experts,
I have the following stored procedure;-

SELECT *
FROM Records
WHERE
groupid = (@groupid)
and functionid LIKE (@functionid)

The thing is that sometimes, the query may not require to filter by groupid and functionid and will just need to do a sraight search like so;-

SELECT *
FROM Records

What's the best way to implement this...(and why?)

Many thanks

for @functionid, passing '%' as value would do it.
for @groupid, the sql would need to be changed, for example:
SELECT *
FROM Records
WHERE ( groupid = @groupid or @groupid is null) 
and functionid LIKE @functionid 

and pass @functionid = '%' and @groupid = NULL to return all records.

hi angellll,

Sorry, both are integer values so can't take null (well as far as I know anyways). what would be the replacement for this line;-
WHERE ( groupid = @groupid or @groupid is null)

where groupid is an integer

integer variables and column CAN take nulls.
