Is there any way to run the query more than 8000 character via openquery?

Hi,

I need to build a large query that goes way over 8000 characters using OpenQuery syntax.  Is there another option without building a view?

Sample code I am trying to use that is causing "is too long" error:


SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY(CUSTOMER_PROD,
       'SELECT
        ms.CUSTOMERship_id,

If you have any control over the remote server, you could create a stored procedure or view on the remote server and then just use it through the open query.  That's probably your best bet.  I don't know of any other way around the 8000 character limit.

I just had another thought.  You may be able to avoid using open query altogether and use four part naming instead like this.  LINKEDSERVERNAME..SCHEMANAME.TABLENAME.  You would have to substitute the four part name for every table in the remote query.

I thought of LINKEDSERVERNAME..SCHEMANAME.TABLENAME.  By doing that I can't use Oracle's functions like to_char, Decode....

What is SQL Server and how does it work?

The purpose of this paper is to provide you background on SQL Server. It’s your self-study guide for learning fundamentals. It includes both the history of SQL and its technical basics. Concepts and definitions will form the solid foundation of your future DBA expertise.

 
JestersGrindCommented:
That's a good point.  Putting the code in Oracle in some fashion might be the only option then.

I ended up creating functions in Oracle to remove all the subqueries.  That made the query small enough to use in an OpenQuery statement.
