when running this stored procedure -- its keeps crashing the web-page.

I suspect its because the value is zero -- how do I prevent this from happening (via SQL)
@COSID	       int,
@StartDateTime  datetime,
@FinishDateTime datetime

AS
	DECLARE @table1Value int
	
	SELECT @table1Value = (
			SELECT SUM(ChargeableAmount) 
			FROM [TDRData] 
			WHERE (TransactionKey = 6) AND (COSID =@COSID) 
			  AND (TransactionTime BETWEEN @StartDateTime AND @FinishDateTime))
	
	SELECT TotalValue = @table1Value

0 is not the same as null

if its returning null, do "SELECT TotalValue = isnull(@table1Value, 0)"

there's nothing wrong with the code itself from what has been provided. you can always change it to have an output parameter rather than simply selecting a value at the end
@COSID	       int,
@StartDateTime  datetime,
@FinishDateTime datetime,
@TotalValue decimal(19,5) output

AS
	DECLARE @table1Value int
	
	SELECT @table1Value = (
			SELECT SUM(ChargeableAmount) 
			FROM [TDRData] 
			WHERE (TransactionKey = 6) AND (COSID =@COSID) 
			  AND (TransactionTime BETWEEN @StartDateTime AND @FinishDateTime))
	
	SELECT @TotalValue = isnull(@table1Value, 0)

Open in new window


Then, when you call the proc, include an "@TotalValue out" parameter
