hi mlmcc,

Seems like I only talk to you  :)...

Followed the instructions from the SAP...

I have entered the Script

{?LinkReceiver}
DELETE FROM "TableOfContents"
WHERE "TableOfContents"."DateTime" <> {?DateTime};
SELECT * FROM "TableOfContent.

I have double checked all of the underlying info and all appears correct..

I get this error " Failed to retrieve data from the database. Details: 42000 9Microsoft0[ODBC SQL SERVER DRIVER][SQL SERVER]Unclosed quotation mark after the character string '}; SELECT * FROM "TableOfContents"'. [Database Vendor Code:105]

Any thoughts

The last line of the SQL you have posted is clearly incorrect.
Is that a typo in your real code or just in what you have posted here.

Yes, it is a typo..but not in the real code or in what I posted...the error placed that in even though my code doesn't have that error..I think I probably typed and re-typed the code 5 or 6 times and the error never goes away or changes...Weird

Perhaps I wasn't clear.
The last line here is not valid syntax...

{?LinkReceiver}
DELETE FROM "TableOfContents"
WHERE "TableOfContents"."DateTime" <> {?DateTime};
SELECT * FROM "TableOfContent.

But SAP dictates this as the correct entry. If its not right (which it clearly isn't) How can I work this?

What database do you have?  SQL Server, Oracle or something else?  The syntax will be dictated by the flavor of SQL you use.

I don't understand what you mean by this..
"But SAP dictates this as the correct entry.  "

Crystal Reports does not validate the sql command, it just sends it to the database.

At least one of the 3rd-party Crystal Reports Desktop Scheduling tools listed at: http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html provides that functionality.  However, it does this by automatically exporting the Crystal report to PDF and adding the Table of Contents to the resulting PDF file.  It can also automate the emailing of the resulting file.

OK , I've looked -  the last line of the code that you posted here is incomplete compared to the code in the link.

Perhaps attach your code in the code field of the message post, rather than paste it into your message. Quote marks into a website field not designed for code could cause some interesting errors.
