true of the first row in the result set, I need to grab the previous row in the database and include it in the result set

You can create a dynamic sql, i.e. create programmatically the SQL string (by adding the additional SELECTS with the clause UNION) and execute this string.

Please look at this article for more information about dynamic SQL.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188001.aspx

Also please look this article for how to use UNION:

http://technet.microsoft.com/es-es/library/ms180026.aspx

Hope it helps. Regards.

You should create a cursor to access to the rows of the select. By creating a cursor you can process rows one by one: save the current row to a variable, maintaining the previous row on another variable (so you will need two row variables).

Please see this article about cursors on MySQL: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/cursors.html

I have not used cursors before, is it difficult to convert what I have to function as you are talking of.

Have you read the article? I think it shouldn't be difficult.

I would do it for you but the problem is I don't really understand what exactly you want. You said: "if (this) true of the first row in the result set, I need to grab the previous row in the database and include it in the result set ". Never exist a previous row of first row.

Also you can get first row just by adding a "TOP 1" just after SELECT word. This will make the SELECT to return just the first record instead of all records.

Then, you can also use variables to assign the value of columns when the SELECT statement returns exactly one row:

SELECT @myvar1=mycolumn1, @myvar2=mycolumn2, ...., @myvarN = mycolumnN
FROM bla bla....

If the initial query grabs 10 of 100 rows - the first row of the result set being row 24 AND that first row meets this condition
when l1.completed > startDate AND a.name LIKE '%Disable%'  

Then I need to figure out how to include row 23 in the result set. Even if the started time is outside of the between dates

Then I think you should do this:

store the recordId of the found record on a variable (for example v_id).

then make this query:

SELECT @v_previous_id = MAX(recordId)
FROM logl644
WHERE recordId < @v_id;

Then you can get the previous record by issuing this sentence:

SELECT *
FROM your_tables_and_join
WHERE ll.recordId = @v_previous_id;

The problem that i have been running into is this creates two return data sets when the query has been run - is there any way to incorporate this into one return set.
