Hi,
I need to adjust the sql query (see  attachment)  in query analyser to return the first and last names of the log agents.
The log agents column  references the ctct table.
The ctct table holds names for both Customers and Log agents.
Thanks.

Hi,
this is the code;
declare @date2 int
select @date2=datediff(second,convert(datetime,'1/1/70',3),(select getdate()))
select ref_num as Incident#,summary as Summary, description as Description,status as Status,
ahd.ctct.c_first_name as Customer,ahd.ctct.c_last_name as _,ahd.call_req.log_agent,
CAST(DATEADD(second,AHD.call_req.open_date + 3200 , '1970-01-01 00:00:00') AS smalldatetime) AS Open_date,
 CAST(DATEADD(second,AHD.call_req.last_mod_dt + 3200 , '1970-01-01 00:00:00') AS smalldatetime)  as Last_updated
 from ahd.Call_req, ahd.ctct
where
 ahd.call_req.customer = ahd.ctct.id

and active_flag=1

I'm assuming ctct is a table just holding ids and names?  Taking a few guesses here, as I have no idea what the table structure is, but try something like below:

You're going to have to use joins instead of just table lists
I also modified the first date2 select a bit.

declare @date2 int
 

--select @date2 = datediff(second, convert(datetime, '1/1/70', 3), (select getdate()))

set @date2 = datediff(second, convert(datetime, '1/1/70', 3), getdate())
 

select ref_num as Incident#, Summary, Description, Status,

cust.c_first_name as Customer, cust.c_last_name as _, 

agent.c_first_name as LogAgentFirstName, agent.c_last_name as LogAgentLastName,

ahd.call_req.log_agent,

cast (dateadd(second, AHD.call_req.open_date + 3200, '1970-01-01 00:00:00') as smalldatetime) as Open_date,

cast (dateadd(second, AHD.call_req.last_mode_dt + 3200, '1970-01-01 00:00:00') as smalldatetime) as Last_updated

from ahd.Call_req cr

join ahd.ctct cust on cr.customer = ctct.id

join ahd.ctct agent on cr.log_agent = ctct.id

where active_flag = 1
