Hello
I would like to create a view =ViewLieferscheine1.
In the SQL Table the A.VersandPostleitzahl is a int.

I would like to CAST the int to a nvarchar.
CAST(A.VersandPostleitzahl AS CHAR)AS A.VersandPostleitzahl......that is wrong and will not do it
 
How can I do this. Please help.
500 points with a solution.
Thank you.
Best regards,
Thomas

sql.Format("CREATE VIEW ViewLieferscheine1 AS SELECT\
	  A.LieferscheinNr, A.VersandName1, A.VersandName2,\
	  A.VersandStrassePostfach,CAST(A.VersandPostleitzahl AS CHAR)AS A.VersandPostleitzahl,\
	  A.VersandOrt,A.VersandLand,A.Lieferscheindatum,\
	  A.DebitorenNr,A.Lieferungsbedingungenkurzbezeichnung AS Lieferbedingung,\
	  A.FakturiertAktiv AS Fakturiert,SUM(B.Einheitbez13wert) AS Gewicht\
	  FROM Lieferscheine AS A inner join Lieferscheinpositionen AS B\
	  ON A.LieferscheinNr=B.LieferscheinNr WHERE A.LieferscheinNr<%d\
	  GROUP BY A.LieferscheinNr,A.VersandName1,A.VersandName2,\
	  A.VersandStrassePostfach, A.VersandPostleitzahl,\
   	  A.VersandOrt,A.VersandLand, A.Lieferscheindatum, A.DebitorenNr,\

Hi,


CAST(A.VersandPostleitzahl AS CHAR)AS A.VersandPostleitzahl

Remove A.

CAST(A.VersandPostleitzahl AS CHAR)AS VersandPostleitzahl

Hi,

You no need to give Table Alias while giving column alias.

Hi again,

Secondly your where condition seems not complete

WHERE A.LieferscheinNr<%d

This is not valid syntax.

Hello,
okay that works....thank you.

 A.LieferscheinNr<%d
how should I change this...also with a cast ?
The view should only have LieferscheinNr with a value <2000000
LieferscheinNr is a nvarchar in my SQL table.
Please let me know.
Thank you.

Hi,

You can directly pass the value.
you no need to cast

sql.Format("CREATE VIEW ViewLieferscheine1 AS SELECT\
          A.LieferscheinNr, A.VersandName1, A.VersandName2,\
          A.VersandStrassePostfach,CAST(A.VersandPostleitzahl AS VARCHAR(10))AS A.VersandPostleitzahl,\
          A.VersandOrt,A.VersandLand,A.Lieferscheindatum,\
          A.DebitorenNr,A.Lieferungsbedingungenkurzbezeichnung AS Lieferbedingung,\
          A.FakturiertAktiv AS Fakturiert,SUM(B.Einheitbez13wert) AS Gewicht\
          FROM Lieferscheine AS A inner join Lieferscheinpositionen AS B\
          ON A.LieferscheinNr=B.LieferscheinNr WHERE A.LieferscheinNr<2000000\
          GROUP BY A.LieferscheinNr,A.VersandName1,A.VersandName2,\
          A.VersandStrassePostfach, A.VersandPostleitzahl,\
          A.VersandOrt,A.VersandLand, A.Lieferscheindatum, A.DebitorenNr,\
          A.Lieferungsbedingungenkurzbezeichnung, A.FakturiertAktiv",2000000);

In above query,

I used VarChar(10) as example...

Please use actual size....

Your final view will be like .....
CREATE VIEW ViewLieferscheine1 AS 

SELECT
       A.LieferscheinNr, A.VersandName1, A.VersandName2,
       A.VersandStrassePostfach,CAST(A.VersandPostleitzahl AS VARCHAR(10))AS A.VersandPostleitzahl,
       A.VersandOrt,A.VersandLand,A.Lieferscheindatum,
       A.DebitorenNr,A.Lieferungsbedingungenkurzbezeichnung AS Lieferbedingung,
       A.FakturiertAktiv AS Fakturiert,SUM(B.Einheitbez13wert) AS Gewicht
FROM 
		Lieferscheine AS A 
inner join Lieferscheinpositionen AS B ON A.LieferscheinNr=B.LieferscheinNr 

WHERE A.LieferscheinNr<2000000

GROUP BY A.LieferscheinNr,A.VersandName1,A.VersandName2,
          A.VersandStrassePostfach, A.VersandPostleitzahl,
          A.VersandOrt,A.VersandLand, A.Lieferscheindatum, A.DebitorenNr,
          A.Lieferungsbedingungenkurzbezeichnung, A.FakturiertAktiv
