SQL SERVER 2008 R2 CURSOR ERROR

Hi,

Every body , I'm fighting against an script in sql server 2008. The script is for a REBUILD, and will be included in a sql job.  Trying to include the parameter WITH (SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) but I get an error. It might be because of concatenate incorrectly. I would thank you your help. Three hours and not advance.

The section of code:


SELECT  
        db_name(database_id) database_name, s.name schema_name, t.name table_name, i.name index_name
        , dt.avg_fragmentation_in_percent, dt.avg_page_space_used_in_percent, page_count, record_count, fragment_count
        ,      case
                when ( avg_page_space_used_in_percent < ' + convert(char(3),@min_fill_rebuild) +
    '                        or   avg_fragmentation_in_percent > ' + convert(char(3),@min_frag_rebuild) +                  
    ') then ''ALTER INDEX '' + QUOTENAME(i.name)+ '' ON '+ QUOTENAME(@database_name) + '.'' + QUOTENAME(s.name) +''.''+ QUOTENAME(t.name) +'' REBUILD '' + '' WITH

(SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) ''  
                else ''ALTER INDEX '' + QUOTENAME(i.name)+ '' ON '+ QUOTENAME(@database_name) + '.'' + QUOTENAME(s.name) +''.''+ QUOTENAME(t.name) +'' REBUILD '' + '' WITH
(SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) ''

The thing is I get an error " Executed as user: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. Warning: Null value is eliminated by an aggregate or other SET operation. [SQLSTATE 01003] (Message 8153)  Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'with'. If this statement is a common table expression, an xmlnamespaces clause or a change tracking context clause, the previous statement must be terminated with a semicolon. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 319).  The step failed."


Any idea? this script without    + '' WITH
(SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) '' work correctly

Null Value is eliminated is normally a pointer that a MIN(), MAX() or other aggregate function was executed on data that contained NULLs...

The other problem could be caused by the last line of the statement:

''ALTER INDEX '' + QUOTENAME(i.name)+ '' ON '+ QUOTENAME(@database_name) + '.'' + QUOTENAME(s.name) +''.''+ QUOTENAME(t.name) +''  REBUILD '' + '' WITH (SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) ''

Are you sure what you are doing with single an double quotes?

'ALTER INDEX ' [your_i_name] ' ON [your_db_name] .'[your_s_name]'.'[your_t_name]' REBUILD '' WITH (SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON)'

This looks strange. I think you used "QUOTENAME" which quoted the table and schema name for you and added accidentially additional apostrophs to the quotes.

You are also missing the

END

for the CASE WHEN.... END

And this is what I assume that you wanted to do with your concatenation (untested)

 ''ALTER INDEX ' + QUOTENAME(i.name)+ ' ON '+ QUOTENAME(@database_name) + '.' + QUOTENAME(s.name) +'.'+ QUOTENAME(t.name) +' REBUILD WITH (SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) ''  
                else ''ALTER INDEX ' + QUOTENAME(i.name)+ ' ON '+ QUOTENAME(@database_name) + '.' + QUOTENAME(s.name) +'.'+ QUOTENAME(t.name) +' REBUILD WITH (SORT_IN_TEMPDB = ON) ''

Why are you using duplicate single quotes?

A duplicate single quote is used to escape a single quote within a string with out ending the string.

Use single quotes. Only at the start and end of the string it could make sense if you want a string as return value.
