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.

CREATE PROCEDURE getallcurrenttasks()

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 ;
