List Issues

Maybe i worked a bit i do not know

but last 1 hr, i am stuck @ this point

My IDs come as:

123456,123454,989789

Now i want to make them as:

NewID = '123456','123454','989789'

Me using listQualify function to add a single quotes to them and passing as:

'ListChangeDelim(NewID,"|")'

Either i remove qutes or apply quotes around listchangedelim it is throuwing an error when it interact with the database with some invalid list

try it like...
 
<cfset ids="123456,123454,989789" />
<cfset ids="'"&ids&"'" />
<cfset ids=replace(ids,",","','","all") />
<cfoutput>#ids#</cfoutput>

hi,

you using ms sql or mysql.

if you using ms sql then i have better suggestion, because even after putting single quote, you need to create dynamic query which is too bit complex for debugging.

<cfset theList = "123456,123454,989789">


 
'#listChangeDelims(theList,"','")#'

But the bigger question is why?   Since all the values are numeric, you don't need to put them in quotes when used in your query...   it is ok to do this....    WHERE THE_ID in (1,2,3,4,5)

WHERE (va.PID IN (238413,238414,238413a)
    OR va.ID IN (''238413'',''238414'',''238413a''))

Hi,

This post could be out of way to Question still I'm using this one....so sharing...

What we do....

create below function in database.

and calling this way.

va.PID IN (select items from dbo.FN_GENERATETABLE('238413,238414,238413a',','))
GO
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[FN_GENERATETABLE]( @STRING VARCHAR(8000),@DELIMITER CHAR(1) )
        RETURNS @RESULTS TABLE (ITEMS VARCHAR(8000))
AS


BEGIN

        --IF @STRING IS NULL OR @STRING='' RETURN
    SET @STRING =       LTRIM(RTRIM( @STRING ))
        
    DECLARE @INDEX INT
        DECLARE @SLICE VARCHAR(8000)
        DECLARE @SLICEPER VARCHAR(8000)
    -- HAVE TO SET TO 1 SO IT DOESNT EQUAL Z
    --     ERO FIRST TIME IN LOOP
    SELECT @INDEX = 1 
    
        WHILE @INDEX !=0
        BEGIN   
                -- GET THE INDEX OF THE FIRST OCCURENCE OF THE SPLIT CHARACTER
                SELECT @INDEX = CHARINDEX(@DELIMITER,@STRING)
                -- NOW PUSH EVERYTHING TO THE LEFT OF IT INTO THE SLICE VARIABLE
                IF @INDEX !=0
                        SELECT @SLICE = LEFT(@STRING,@INDEX - 1)
                ELSE
                        SELECT @SLICE = @STRING
                                
                -- PUT THE ITEM INTO THE RESULTS SET
                INSERT INTO @RESULTS(ITEMS) VALUES(@SLICE)
                -- CHOP THE ITEM REMOVED OFF THE MAIN STRING
                SELECT @STRING = RIGHT(@STRING,LEN(@STRING) - @INDEX)
                        
                -- BREAK OUT IF WE ARE DONE
                IF LEN(@STRING) = 0 BREAK
    END

    RETURN
END

You code is showing duplicate single quotes, you only want one single quote

WHERE (va.PID IN (238413,238414,238413a) 
    OR va.ID IN (''238413'',''238414'',''238413a''))

Open in new window



You can remove ALL single quotes, as I said, these are numbers.

WHERE (va.PID IN (238413,238414,238413a)
          OR va.ID IN (238413,238414,238413a)
           )
