Hi, I'm getting sytax error for the line:
@interestChildId = parentId

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Procedure GetData, Line 63
Incorrect syntax near '@interestChildId'.

It's been a while since I write query.  Appreciate some help here.  Thank you.




DECLARE @interestChildId bigint;
 
Declare curApplicationRow Cursor FOR
SELECT RchChildId from NewApplication
 
Open curApplicationRow
FETCH NEXT FROM curApplicationRow
INTO @interestChildId
 
 
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS =0  --GO THROUGH EACH RECORD
BEGIN
	SELECT dbo.ResearchInterests.Name as interestName, dbo.ResearchInterests.ParentResearchInterest_id as parentId
	from dbo.ResearchInterests
	WHERE dbo.ResearchInterests.Id = @interestChildId
 
	WHILE(parentId <> NULL)--USE THE PARENTID TO TRAVERSE TO ITS PARENT NODE UNTIL REACHES ROOT NODE
	BEGIN
		@interestChildId = parentId
		SELECT dbo.ResearchInterests.Name, dbo.ResearchInterests.ParentResearchInterest_id as parentId
		from dbo.ResearchInterests
		WHERE dbo.ResearchInterests.Id = @interestChildId
	END
 
	FETCH NEXT FROM curApplicationRow
	INTO @interestChildId
END

Yap!  That did the trick.  It's been a few years since I write queries.  I know what I want just can't remember all the syntax.  Thanks.

Confronted with some SQL you don't know can be a daunting task. It can be even more daunting if that SQL carries some of the old secret codes used in the Ye Olde query syntax, such as: (+)     as used in Oracle;     *=     =*    as used in Sybase …
Composite queries are used to retrieve the results from joining multiple queries after applying any filters. UNION, INTERSECT, MINUS, and UNION ALL are some of the operators used to get certain desired results.​
