searching the database sql server dynamically

Hi there,

i have an asp.net website with the 3 tier, and i have connect sql server database with it. now im implementing the search crateria, i have put 3 checkboxlist controls on the page. and also have two text boxes one for searching postcode and other for any business like Mcdonalds or pizza hut etc, and a search button.
my question is that when a user enter a post code or a business name or any of them can be empty as well, and also when the user select any of the checkbox in the checkbox list , as he can select either one or two or as many as he wants, so how i will make a stored procedure in sql server depending on the checkboxes selected in the checkboxlist. like if two checkboxes selected then the stored procedure should return me the result only for them two checkboxes, if more then return for them more its depends on the checkboxlist.

Any help appreciated as i am stuck now.

Thanks

If you are doing this in a Stored Procedure you would pass all the variables to the Stored Procedure (if not do the following logic in the ASP code).

Then build out a string with your select statment, somethign like this (SQL CODE):

DIM SQLCode varchar(MAX)
-- doing 1=1 because easier when adding dynamic "AND" statements to force a single where no matter what
Set SQLCODE = "Select FieldList From Table WHERE 1=1"

if ISNULL(checkboxvariable, '') <> ''
    SET SQLCode = SQLCODE + 'AND fieldfromTable = ''' + checboxvariable + '''
   -- using 3 single quotes above for escape sequence so it forces 1 single quote to appear int he string


-- do the same for all the variable fields above

Then

EXEC(SQLCode)

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[SalesHistory]
  (        
        @PostCode varchar(10),        
        @BusinessName varchar(10),
        @Val1 varchar(10),
        @Val2 varchar(10),
        @Val3 varchar(10),
  )
  GO              

  SET NOCOUNT ON             
  BEGIN
  DECLARE @SelectStatement NVARCHAR(2000)
  DECLARE @FullStatement NVARCHAR(4000)     
  SET @WhereStatement = '';

  SET @SelectStatement = 'SELECT * FROM SalesHistory '
  
  If(@PostCode<>null)
  BEGIN
  SET @WhereStatement = @WhereStatement + "PostCode='" + @PostCode + "' ";
  END

  If(@BusinessName<>null)
  BEGIN
  SET @WhereStatement = @WhereStatement + "AND BusinessName='" + @BusinessName + "'";
  END
  --And So On for other variables
  if(len(@WhereStatement)>0)
  BEGIN
  SET @WhereStatement = " Where " + @WhereStatement
  END

  SET @SelectStatement=@SelectStatement + @WhereStatement;
  print @SelectStatement;
  EXECUTE sp_executesql @SelectStatement;
  END

The code is for SP, make some syntax changes(if required) as i don't have SSMS here...

Try this

--sp_selData 'demo','valutec','mercury'
CREATE Proc sp_selData
        @Val1 nvarchar(50)='',
        @Val2 nvarchar(50)='',
        @Val3 nvarchar(50)=''
as
     select * from <TableName>
     where <Column1> like '%'+ @Val1 +'%'
     or <Column2> like '%'+ @Val2 +'%'
     or <Column3> like '%'+ @Val3 +'%'
Go

Open in new window


TableName = your table name
Column1,2,3 = your filter columns
