I have a query where I need to use IN and LIKE together.

For example;

FOR product IN (like shoe%, like tops%, like bottoms%)

is this possible?

Hi,

No, it's not possible - you'll need to have multiple clauses:
WHERE (product LIKE 'shoe%' OR product LIKE 'tops%'......)

Thanks,

I am now a bit stuck slotting this LIKE clause into my nested query which I am using as part of a SQL Pivot.

I have created a Pivot which select items C100 and C200. How do I use Like here for example can I do

sleect AttendanceDate Like 'C100%'

My original code is:


SELECT     AttendanceDate, [C100] AS C1, [C200] AS C2
FROM         (SELECT     AttendanceDate, Derived_Provider
                       FROM          OPA_General
                       WHERE      (AttendanceDate BETWEEN CONVERT(DATETIME, '03 /01/ 2007 00:00:00', 103) AND CONVERT(DATETIME, '05/03/2007 00:00:00', 103)))
                      p PIVOT (COUNT(Deriverd_Provider) FOR Derived_Provider IN (C100, C200)) AS pvt
ORDER BY AttendanceDate

For PIVOT, you need harcoded column names, so you would have to explicitly type out all the value C100x values or use dynamic SQL statement to build your query.  If the list of values is short and consistent, I would suggest always going with the handcoded method.

I am going to hardcode the Pivot.
I ran a check and there are only two variations. Not really worth setting up an dynamic SQL.
