SQL Syntax within Dreamweaver Recordset

Dear Experts

I have a dreamweaver recordset (ASP , VbScript) as follows:

'SELECT * FROM dbo.menu_categories WHERE subcategory LIKE ?'

I have a problem with the following subcategory values:  

Forage Seeds
Grass Seeds

The problem is that the recordset is returning records for both.  I guess this is due to the 'LIKE' in the SQL statement.

Can anyone suggest a way around this.  Using '=' does not return any values.

Thanks

well, what value do you pass as argument?
and what do you expect to get as output?

thanks angel,

see code below for the recordset:

<%
Dim categories__MMColParam
categories__MMColParam = "1"
If (Request.QueryString("subcategory") <> "") Then
  categories__MMColParam = Request.QueryString("subcategory")
End If
%>



<%
Dim categories
Dim categories_cmd
Dim categories_numRows

Set categories_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
categories_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_borderfarmsupplies_STRING
categories_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM dbo.subcategory_links WHERE linksubcategory like ? ORDER BY linksupplierrange ASC"
categories_cmd.Parameters.Append categories_cmd.CreateParameter("param1", 200, 1, 30, "%" + categories__MMColParam + "%") ' adVarChar
categories_cmd.Prepared = true

Set categories = categories_cmd.Execute
categories_numRows = 0
%>

thanks

This

'SELECT * FROM dbo.menu_categories WHERE subcategory LIKE %Forage%'

will return all results that has Forage in the subcategory names

and this

'SELECT * FROM dbo.menu_categories WHERE subcategory LIKE %Grass%'

for the other subcategories

If you want any perticular record then query must be like this

SELECT * FROM dbo.menu_categories WHERE subcategory='Forage Seeds'

I think you need something like this

categories_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM dbo.subcategory_links WHERE linksubcategory =" & categories__MMColParam "' ORDER BY linksupplierrange ASC"

thanks

I have changed the recordset to the following:

<%
Dim categories__MMColParam
categories__MMColParam = "1"
If (Request.QueryString("subcategory") <> "") Then
  categories__MMColParam = Request.QueryString("subcategory")
End If
%>



<%
Dim categories
Dim categories_cmd
Dim categories_numRows

Set categories_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
categories_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_borderfarmsupplies_STRING
categories_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM dbo.subcategory_links WHERE linksubcategory =" & categories__MMColParam "' ORDER BY linksupplierrange ASC"
categories_cmd.Parameters.Append categories_cmd.CreateParameter("param1", 200, 1, 30, "%" + categories__MMColParam + "%") ' adVarChar
categories_cmd.Prepared = true

Set categories = categories_cmd.Execute
categories_numRows = 0
%>


however this produces the error as follows:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

Expected end of statement

/countrystores/categorypage.asp, line 48

categories_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM dbo.subcategory_links WHERE linksubcategory =" & categories__MMColParam "' ORDER BY linksupplierrange ASC"

i have updated the recordset as follows:

<%
Dim categories__MMColParam
categories__MMColParam = "1"
If (Request.QueryString("subcategory") <> "") Then
  categories__MMColParam = Request.QueryString("subcategory")
End If
%>



<%
Dim categories
Dim categories_cmd
Dim categories_numRows

Set categories_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
categories_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_borderfarmsupplies_STRING
categories_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM dbo.subcategory_links WHERE linksubcategory =" & categories__MMColParam  & "' ORDER BY linksupplierrange ASC"
categories_cmd.Parameters.Append categories_cmd.CreateParameter("param1", 200, 1, 30, "%" + categories__MMColParam + "%") ' adVarChar
categories_cmd.Prepared = true

Set categories = categories_cmd.Execute
categories_numRows = 0
%>

however I am now getting the following error when passing the perameter 'Grass Seeds'

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near 'Seeds'.

/countrystores/categorypage.asp, line 52


thanks again
