Does anyone know how to pass from Bartenders queryprompt into the sql script.
select g.posdesc,g.labl,retail1, b.siz from garment as g
join barcode as b on b.style= g.style
join pricing as p on p.style = b.style and p.pricepoint = b.pricepoint
where g.style = ?QueryPrompt1
The ?Queryprompt is the holder name in the query software bartender supplies for
getting input from the user.  If I pass the data directly ie g.style = '2313958'  no problem.
The error message I get from the SQL is "Conversion failed when converting the varchar
value '.' to data type int

Sounds like your passing invalid data then is ?queryprompt a variable?  Could it be passing data other than numbers?  That what it sounds like is happening.  Try the query below, that may work, otherwise you need to check your data that's being passed, there are text values within it.

select g.posdesc,g.labl,retail1, b.siz from garment as g
join barcode as b on b.style= g.style
join pricing as p on p.style = b.style and p.pricepoint = b.pricepoint
where cast(g.style as int) = cast(?QueryPrompt1 as int)

Thanks.  You put me onto the right process.  the style is actually a varchar so I used "where g.style = cast(?QueryPrompt1 as varchar) and all works.  Much appreciated. :-)

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
