Hi ,

I am trying to pass parameters in SSRS  Opnquery , it's throwing error : incoeerect syntax near 'MM'

Following is the query......

DECLARE @TSQL varchar(8000)
   
SELECT @TSQL = 'SELECT * FROM Openquery (x , ''Select ColorDate,StartOperatorID,equipmentname,colorcode, trim(round(avg(speed),2)) AS AvgSpeed from
(SELECT  TO_CHAR(ENDDATETIME , '''MM/DD/YY''') AS ColorDate
        ,STARTOPERATORID
       ,trim(EQUIPMENTNAME) AS EquipmentName
       ,TRIM(COLORCODE) AS COLORCODE ,
       TRIM(sum(ROUND((ACTUALLENGTH)/((ENDDATETIME-STARTDATETIME))/86400,2))) AS Speed
       ,Round(0.3* ((ENDDATETIME - STARTDATETIME)*86400
                           - ( sqrt(power((ENDDATETIME - STARTDATETIME)*86400,2)  - ((6.67*ActualLength))))),2) AS RunSpeed
             FROM kgf.SEGMENT
       WHERE CURESAMPLE = '''False''' AND ACTUALLENGTH >4000 AND
      Trim(COLORCODE)> 0  AND ((ENDDATETIME-STARTDATETIME)*1440)>1
 AND  ENDDATETIME is NOT NULL AND ENDDATETIME >= ''''' + @StartDate + ''''' And ENDDATETIME < ''''' + @EndDate + '''''
  GROUP BY ENDDATETIME
          ,STARTOPERATORID
         ,EQUIPMENTNAME
         ,ROUND((ENDDATETIME-STARTDATETIME)*1440 , 2)
         ,trim(COLORCODE)
         ORDER BY TO_CHAR(ENDDATETIME , ' ' 'MM/DD/YY' ' ')
       ,STARTOPERATORID
       ,EQUIPMENTNAME
      ) a
       group by ColorDate,StartOperatorID,equipmentname,colorcode       ORDER BY ColorDate,StartOperatorID,equipmentname,colorcode' ') c
INNER JOIN
OpenQuery(y , ' 'SELECT OperatorID , Name As Operator FROM PHD_USER.OPID_NAMESVIEW ' ')  h
on c.STARTOPERATORID = h.OperatorID'

SELECT @TSQL

Use two to get one.

Try:
...
ORDER BY TO_CHAR(ENDDATETIME , ' 'MM/DD/YY' ' )

Are you using sql server or oracle syntax?

If SQL Server, I don't think you can use TO_CHAR.

Also, your parameters should :param for instance :EndDate, not  @EndDate  or  @startDate

Oops, sorry this is OpenQuery.

Ignore everything I said and try this instead:

(SELECT  TO_CHAR(ENDDATETIME , ''''MM/DD/YY'''') AS ColorDate

Sammy,

with TO_CHAR(ENDDATETIME , ''''MM/DD/YY'''')    it's new error

An error occurred while preparing the query for execution against OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "x".

looks like its working ....but i have issue with group by

following is the query

Select ColorDate,StartOperatorID,equipmentname,colorcode, trim(round(avg(speed),2)) AS AvgSpeed  , trim(round(avg(runspeed),2)) AS NormSpeed from
(SELECT  TO_CHAR(ENDDATETIME , 'MM/DD/YY') AS ColorDate
        ,STARTOPERATORID
       ,trim(EQUIPMENTNAME) AS EquipmentName
       ,TRIM(COLORCODE) AS COLORCODE ,
       TRIM(sum(ROUND((ACTUALLENGTH)/((ENDDATETIME-STARTDATETIME))/86400,2))) AS Speed
       ,TRIM(Sum(Round((0.3)* ((ENDDATETIME - STARTDATETIME)*86400
                           - ( sqrt(power((ENDDATETIME - STARTDATETIME)*86400,2)  - (((6.67)*ActualLength))))),2))) AS RunSpeed

>>but i have issue with group by

you have to group by all non-aggregate columns in your outer query:

...
 ,EQUIPMENTNAME
       ,COLORCODE)
group by
ColorDate,StartOperatorID,equipmentname,colorcode

Not sure that I helped much but it appears the main 'fix' was sammySeltzer's post http:#a37738110 that used 4 single quotes.

Please accept that post as the solution and not yours in http:#a37738140

CodingSucks, we still haven't seen anything you have done differently from the suggestions you were given.

If I were you, I would go ahead and accept the answer.

There is always another time you might need help.

Just bear this in mind as you argue over semantics.
