Experts,

While attempting to apply a Filter expression to a DataSource, I get the following error:

Missing Operand after 's' Operator

In the attached code snippet, you can see the SQL statement that I build and how I apply it.  The query returns a 65 integer value.

What am I missing?
sql="(SELECT s.Statement_ID "; 
				sql=sql + "FROM ((((STATEMENTS s ";
				sql=sql + "INNER JOIN Topics_To_Statements tts ON tts.Statement_ID=s.Statement_ID) ";
				sql=sql + "INNER JOIN Topics t ON t.Topic_ID=tts.Topic_ID) " ;
				sql=sql + "INNER JOIN Subjects_To_Topics stt ON stt.Topic_ID=t.Topic_ID)  ";
				sql = sql + "INNER JOIN Disciplines_To_Subjects dts ON dts.Subject_ID=stt.Subject_ID) ";
			   sql= sql + " WHERE dts.Discipline_ID=" + disciplineID.ToString() + ")";
				sql = sql + " ORDER BY t.Topic_Name ASC ";
 
			  //cce
				dsrcStatements.FilterExpression = "Statement_ID IN " + sql;
				gridStatements.DataBind();

from what I know, you cannot do that.

you will either have to rerun the statement to fill the data source, or you will need to run that subselect, and get the list of values as comma-separated string, and put that into the filter expression.

You've got a bit too much going on here--first thing I suggest is cleaning up your code. Instead of saying:

sql = sql + " .... ";
It is common practice to say:
sql += " .... ";

However, in this case, you don't need to have these seperate statements like that--in fact, it actually slows the concatenation process down, creating more String objects than is necessary. I'm not sure how you're implementing everything, but I'll give you a half psuedocode half code method you may use (just replace the last time you used the variable "sql" with a method call to the following method):

public System.String GetCommaSeperatedList(System.String mySqlStatement)
{
     System.Text.StringBuilder bldr = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
     // Execute SQL Statement supplied in parameters
     foreach(DataRow record in /*Executed SQL Statement*/)
     {
          bldr.Append(record[/*Get desired field*/]);
          bldr.Append(", ");
     }
     bldr.Append(")"); // Complete "IN" parentheses
     return bldr.ToString();
}
