"Subquery returned more than 1 value". Need someone to check code!

Hi,
I have below table, and query which return error. I was trying to add IN operator, but it seems that my knowledge is not good enough.

ID      IsLogin      OnlineTime
John          True          2013-10-30 12:00:00
James        True          2013-10-30 12:00:00

select DATEDIFF(minute,(SELECT OnlineTime FROM IsLogin WHERE IsLogin = 'True'),GETDATE())

Open in new window


And, error:
Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

With IN operator, which of course also not working:
SELECT DATEDIFF(minute,(SELECT OnlineTime FROM IsLogin WHERE IsLogin IN ('True')),GetDate())

Open in new window


This is my entire query inside of stored procedure, which works fine if only 1 row is found.
DECLARE @DiffDate varchar(max)
SET @DiffDate = DATEDIFF(minute,(SELECT OnlineTime FROM IsLogin WHERE IsLogin = 'True'),GetDate())
UPDATE IsLogin
SET IsLogin = 'False', OnlineTime = convert(varchar(max), GetDate())
WHERE IsLogin = 'True' AND @DiffDate > 1

Open in new window


Thanks in advance for help!

>SET @DiffDate = ...
The above assigns a value to a scalar variable, so whatever is in ... must return only one value.

If you're trying to UPDATE a set, lose the variables and try something like this..
UPDATE IsLogin
SET IsLogin = 'False', OnlineTime = convert(varchar(max), GetDate())
WHERE IsLogin = 'True' AND DATEDIFF(minute,(OnlineTime,GetDate())) > 1
