sql server - dlookup

Hi,

What's the equivalent of Dlookup in SQL server 2005 syntax?

Instead of hard code the date and the number in this procedure, I would like to refer it to a field from a table in the server. Please let me know how to modify this.

@BaseYrBegin smalldatetime = '1/1/2010', @intProjWindow smallint = 6,

You mean something like this??

create table #table (crt_date smalldatetime)

insert into #table select '1/1/2010'
declare @BaseYrBegin smalldatetime
set  @BaseYrBegin = (select crt_date from #table);
print (@BaseYrBegin)

drop table #table

There isn't such a thing. dLookup is a function (that you could easily write yourself in SQL) that you provide a table, a field, and a criterion. This is essentially the same as Select Field from Table where Criterion.
