Hello To All,

Need help in structuring a Select query….

I am writing a VBA code that will run from a excel file, grab a set of dates from sheet 3and then pull data of a table in SQL Server using that set of dates as a criteria set….How to do it?

SELECT [OrderID]
,[DateOfIssue]
,[UnitPrice]
,[Quantity]
,[Discount]
FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Order Details]
where DateOfIssue in (select Dates from sheet3.Range("A:A50000"))

In excel file, in column A of sheet3, has a list of dates that can vary from few dates to 200-300

Sending this SQL Query from Excel VBA,  - when this select statment is executed, the "Where" criteria looks at a set of dates in column B of sheet3 for getting the query results
Not sure if my query is set up correctly.

    Dim strSQLStatement As String
    Dim strVALSet As String
    Dim clVal As String
    Dim col, Count, lastRw, rw As Long
    Dim dateWks As Worksheet
   
    Set dateWks = Sheet2
       
    col = 1
 
    lastRw = dateWks.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
   
    For rw = 2 To lastRw
        strVALSet = "[IssueDate] ="
        'strVALSet = ""
            clVal = dateWks.Range("A" & rw)
            strVALSet = strVALSet & ", '" & clVal & "'"
        'strSQLStatement = strSQLStatement & "," & vbCrLf & " or(" & Mid(strVALSet, 3) & ")"
        strSQLStatement = strSQLStatement & "," & vbCrLf & " or(" & Mid(strVALSet, 3) & ")"
    Next
    Stop
    Debug.Print "WHERE [IssueDate] =" & Mid(strSQLStatement, 3)
