Hello experts,
I have a very long sql in my asp.net markup like this. What line continuation character do I use? The compiler says "if this attribute value is enclosed in quotation marks, the quotation marks must match."

            <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sdsBonuses" runat="server" 
                ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:AdHocReportingConnectionString %>" 
                SelectCommand = "select approved_denied_by=case when b.bonus_status = 'Denied' then denied_by when b.bonus_status = 'Approved' then approved_by else null end,
                                            approved_denied_date=case when b.bonus_status = 'Denied' then denied_date when b.bonus_status = 'Approved' then approved_date else null end, b.*,rtrim(p.first_name)+' '+rtrim(p.last_name) Name,rtrim(ps.first_name)+' '+rtrim(ps.last_name) submitter_name

The continuation character is an underscore ensure there is a space between the last character on the line and the underscore.
I think that you will possibly need to close each line with a " and use an & as well like this :


"some string " & _
"another string " & _

You won't be able to do the concatenation you have within this line:

and employee_id = (select employee_id from people where network_account = '" + Session["uid"].ToString() + @"')

You would need to add a placeholder and add a SessionParameter to the command's SelectParameters collection:

...

                            and employee_id = (select employee_id from people where network_account = @uid)
                            and 
                            (
                            a.location_cd_prefixed = 'div0'+rtrim(b.division_num)
                            or
                            a.location_cd_prefixed = 'com0'+rtrim(b.company_num)
                            or
                            a.location_cd_prefixed = 'OPE0'+rtrim(b.operation_num)
                            or
                            a.location_cd_prefixed = 'BUS0'+rtrim(b.business_unit_num)
                            or
                            a.location_cd_prefixed = 'TER0'+rtrim(b.territory_num)

Hi,

I have a very long sql in my asp.net markup like this. What line continuation character do I use?

There is no line continuation in .aspx or .html (as .aspx page would get converted to html one after compilation or at runtime). But solution exists for prob.(The HTML Document Character Set)

I have changed some of characters (<,> and ") in query to their Decimal Code(&#60;, &#62; and &quot;) respectively. No need to worry for them as they would get converted to their respective characters in html generated.

However I was not able to test your query. Let us know if it helped you or not. Below is modified code(only special characters):

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="sdsBonuses" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:AdHocReportingConnectionString %>"
            SelectCommand="select approved_denied_by=case when b.bonus_status = 'Denied' then denied_by when b.bonus_status = 'Approved' then approved_by else null end,
                                            approved_denied_date=case when b.bonus_status = 'Denied' then denied_date when b.bonus_status = 'Approved' then approved_date else null end, b.*,rtrim(p.first_name)+' '+rtrim(p.last_name) Name,rtrim(ps.first_name)+' '+rtrim(ps.last_name) submitter_name
