Hi,

I have Chart Of Account Table:

1. AccNo
2. Name
3. GroupAcc   --> Refer to AccNo

I want to get all child value by passing parent AccNo.

It could be done using recursive CTE in SQL2005.

How to solve it using SQL 7 syntax?

Thank you.

some looping t-sql
create table #children ( accno int , lev int )
set nocount on 
declare @lev int
declare @root_accno int 
set @root_accno = 123
set @lev = 0 
insert into #children (accno, lev ) values ( @root_accno, @lev )
while @@rowcount > 0
begin
  set @lev = @lev + 1
  insert into #children (accno, lev) select t.accno, @lev from #children c join yourtable t on t.groupacc = c.accno and c.lev = @lev - 1
end 
select * from #children

Please see my code, some change from your code.

Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'SET'.

Why SET @root_accno = '123' ?

Thank you.
CREATE TABLE #children(accno Char, lev int)

SET nocount ON 

    DECLARE @lev int DECLARE @root_accno Char,

SET @root_accno = '123'

SET @lev = 0

        INSERT 

      INTO #children(accno, lev)

VALUES (@root_accno, @lev) 

    WHILE @@rowcount > 0 BEGIN

SET @lev = @lev + 1

        INSERT 

      INTO #children(accno, lev)

              SELECT t .accno, @lev

            FROM #children c LEFT JOIN

                TMGLACCNO AS t ON 

                t .GlobalAcc = c.accno AND 

                c.lev = @lev - 1 END

                    SELECT *

                  FROM #children

you had the CHAR, in the declare...
CREATE TABLE #children(accno varChar(100), lev int)

SET nocount ON 

 DECLARE @lev int 

DECLARE @root_accno varChar(100)

SET @root_accno = '123'

SET @lev = 0

        INSERT 

      INTO #children(accno, lev)

VALUES (@root_accno, @lev) 

    WHILE @@rowcount > 0 BEGIN

SET @lev = @lev + 1

        INSERT

            FROM #children c LEFT JOIN

                TMGLACCNO AS t ON

SET @root_accno = '101.000.00' is the global account to find.

Thank you.

not LEFT JOIN. JOIN
also, do you have a index on globalAcc on the table?
SET nocount ON 

    DECLARE @lev int DECLARE @root_accno varChar(100)

SET @root_accno = '101.000.00'

SET @lev = 0

        INSERT 

      INTO #children(accno, lev)

VALUES (@root_accno, @lev) 
 

WHILE @@rowcount > 0

BEGIN

  SET @lev = @lev + 1

  INSERT 

    INTO #children(accno, lev)

   SELECT t .accno, @lev

            FROM #children c 

            JOIN  TMGLACCNO AS t ON 

                t .GlobalAcc = c.accno AND

do you have a index on globalAcc on the table?
No.

Some accounts appear more than once? To be exactly 3 times.

Thank you.

>No.
please create one with globalAcc + Accno on that table. will boost performance of that extraction query


>Some accounts appear more than once? To be exactly 3 times.
could it be that your structure is "incorrect"?

can you provide test data?

based on your test data, I got this, which seems just perfect, no duplicates ...
please double check your data/output.

for example:

101.001.01      1
101.001.02      1
101.001.03      1
101.002.01      1
101.003.01      1
101.003.03      1

is no duplicates, as the middle part changes...
accno           lev

--------------- -----------

101.000.00      0

101.001.01      1

101.001.02      1

101.001.03      1

101.002.01      1

101.003.01      1

101.003.03      1

101.004.01      1

101.005.01      1
