You wouldn't convert that query to LINQ, you would do it in a different way.

Like:

IEnumerable<int> persons =
   locks
   .GroupBy(x => x.PersonId)
   .Where(g => g.Count()%2 == 1)
   .Select(g => g.First().PersonId);

That doesn't even look close to what I want.  What exactly are you trying to get?

Also, what is "locks"?

It groups the locks on the person id, and returns the id of the persons that have an odd number of locks.

The locks variable is a list of Lock objects that I created from your example data.

If it's not even close to what you want, you have to specify what it is that you want... It does return exactly what you wanted from the test data that you provided.

Ok.  I continue to get the error:

The name 'locks' does not exist in the current context      

Where are you defining it?

I've got it working.  But it isn't what I want.  This brings back everything.  Did you even run the query?

Please try this.

 var data = from p in con.TestTables
                       where p.@lock == true && ((from pp in con.TestTables where pp.personid == p.personid && pp.@lock == false && pp.date >= p.date select pp).Count() == 0)
                       select p.personid;

 var data = from p in con.TestTables
                       where p.@lock == true && ((from pp in con.TestTables where pp.personid == p.personid && pp.@lock == false && pp.date >= p.date select pp).Count() == 0)
                       select p.personid;

What is the result that you are getting?

I ran the query, and it gives exactly the result that you asked for.

@jinal:

What does the "@" mean in
   
   where p.@lock

Why not just do

  where p.lock

I don't understand how you possibly could get everything back. To start with, the query groups on the PersonId, so there is only one group per person. As it only returns one object from each group, the result can't have more than one object per person.

Can you show how you use the code?

(If you can get the grouping to work it's more efficient that running a query in the condition of another query.)

@GreenGhost:

Sorry - not everything but a unique list of persons whether they were locked or not.  The conditions are needed to avoid that.

Did I misunderstand the data? The first record is a lock, and the second record removes it, so if a person has an even number of records, the lock is removed?
