Hi,

I've got a stored procedure that returns data into a form.  This was working well until I was tasked with also adding another table.

I have a main dbAppointments table which has data like this:

appID          fileID          feeusrID         appDate
100             283283      7459               2010-02-06 01:00:00.000
101             285674      7125               2010-05-06 02:00:00.000
102             287444      7459               2010-06-08 02:00:00.000

and I have a secondary table udApptExtraInvite which has data like this:

origAppID    appFeeUsrID
100              7220
101              7459; 7220

I need all appID's and origAppID's that have, for example, 7459 as the dbAppointments.feeusrID or contained within udApptExtraInvite.appFeeUsrID and I need date filtering.  All origAppID's from udApptExtraInvite are viable appID's in dbAppointments.

Note, there are appID's in the dbAppointments table with a feeusrID of 7459 that are not in the udApptExtraInvite table as origAppID.

This is part of the procedure for testing.  My issue is the correct data comes back but when I add the date filter, the script basically is only removing the applicable entries from the udApptExtraInvite table and not filtering anything further.  If I remove "OR AEI.appFeeUsrID like @FEES" the date filtering works correctly.

How do I resolve this?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Declare @FEEUSRID as bigint
SET @FEEUSRID = '7459'
Declare @FEES as varchar(50)
set @fees = '%' + convert(varchar, @FEEUSRID) + '%'

SELECT dbo.dbAppointments.*,
dbo.dbuser.usrFullName,
dbo.dbClient.clNo + '/' + dbo.dbFile.fileNo AS clfileno,
dbo.dbFile.fileDesc,
dbo.dbClient.clName
FROM        
dbo.dbAppointments
INNER JOIN dbo.dbFile ON dbo.dbAppointments.fileID = dbo.dbFile.fileID
INNER JOIN dbo.dbUser ON dbo.dbAppointments.feeusrID = dbo.dbUser.usrID
INNER JOIN dbo.dbClient ON dbo.dbFile.clID = dbo.dbClient.clID
LEFT JOIN udapptextrainvite AEI ON dbo.dbAppointments.appID = AEI.origAppID

WHERE
dbo.dbAppointments.feeusrid = coalesce(7459, dbo.dbAppointments.feeusrid)  
OR AEI.appFeeUsrID like @FEES  
AND (dbo.dbappointments.appdate > '2011-09-30 01:00:00.000')
order by appid

your OR and AND mixing in the where clause is the issue
please try
WHERE ( dbo.dbAppointments.feeusrid = coalesce(7459, dbo.dbAppointments.feeusrid)   
     OR AEI.appFeeUsrID like @FEES  
      )
  AND dbo.dbappointments.appdate > '2011-09-30 01:00:00.000'
order by appid

Sigh.  Thanks my friend.  Perhaps I've been looking at this too long.  I definitely appreciate the help.  :)
