Hi everyone hope you are all well.
Guys im having issues creating a mysql stored procedure.
This is what im doing...

When i execute this, im getting the error:

"You tried to execute an empty string. Please type an SQL command into the SQL edit field and execute again."

I thought this was the right syntax to use, but obviously not.

Im using MySQL version 5.

Any help greatly appreciated.
DELIMITER //
CREATE PROCEDURE getallcurrenttasks()
BEGIN
SELECT * FROM currenttasks_ctk;
END //
DELIMITER ;

It looks like it is not recognizing the DELIMITER keyword ?

the syntax was to be used on mysql command line.
I never used the mysql query browser for anything else than SELECTs, so I can only guess that either:

* select all the text and hit the run, ro
* put only this code
CREATE PROCEDURE getallcurrenttasks()
BEGIN
SELECT * FROM currenttasks_ctk;
END;

Hi Ange, the following worked mate...thank you for your help.
It looks like you have to place the first DELIMITER on the same line as the CREATE.
DELIMITER // CREATE PROCEDURE getallcurrenttasks()
BEGIN
SELECT * FROM currenttasks_ctk;
END;
//
DELIMITER ;
