I thought this was resolved. The stored procedure compiled but did not run.

-- INSERT INTO StockDataWork
--      (SymbolName, OpenPrice)
--SELECT f1.value, f2.value
--  FROM dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListSymbolName , ',') f1
--  JOIN dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListOpenPrice , ',') f2
--    on f1.row_num = f2.row_num
-- WHERE f1.value is not null
 --   and rtrim(f1.value) <> ''

Would you offer further assistance?

Thanks

Well maybe you could offer us further information about what is actually happening!

We don't any idea of what your data is, nor what the code of your SP is, nor what the code of your function ParmsTolist is, nor what testing/validating you have done.

Everything is here

I wish to use a comma delimited lists as a input parameters to a stored procedure.

Within the stored procedure, I need to parse the lists.
Each list has 1800 values.

@SymbolNameList:  "AA.P, AADR,"
@OpenPriceList:  "76.55,37.6"

For Each value in the lists
INSERT INTO tablename (SymbolName, OpenPrice)
VALUES( @SymbolNameList.Item, OpenPriceList.Item)

So what has changed? You said it reduced a 15m query down to 10s - so it clearly worked then, but stopped?

Have you tried testing the individual parts of the SP in query analyser to see what works and what doesn't?

It worked until I used the Join.

The query using the Join compiled but did not run.  It failed when I tested it from the c# code.
My fault for thinking that it worked.

I will test the individual parts in the query analyser.

How can I reopen the question ?

Thanks

Now we know what question you are referring to, its fine.

The following code works for me. If its not working for you, either you have a mistake in your version of dbo.ParmsTolist, or your data you are passing in is different to what you have written.

I suggest you post the results you get when you run the same query below.

declare @SymbolNameList varchar(max), @OpenPriceList varchar(max)

set @SymbolNameList = 'AA.P,AADR'
set @OpenPriceList =  '76.55,37.6'

select * from dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListSymbolName, ',') f1
select * from dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListOpenPrice, ',') f2

SELECT f1.value, f2.value
FROM dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListSymbolName , ',') f1
JOIN dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListOpenPrice , ',') f2 on f1.row_num = f2.row_num
WHERE f1.value is not null and rtrim(f1.value) <> ''

Open in new window

This works when the parameter names in the declare statement match the parameter names in the SELECT statement.

However this is not the issue.

The following works when the declared parameters are set:

declare @ListSymbolName varchar(max), @ListOpenPrice varchar(max)

set @ListSymbolName = 'AA.P,AADR,'
set @ListOpenPrice =  '76.55,37.6,'

INSERT INTO StockDataWork
      (SymbolName, OpenPrice)
SELECT f1.value, f2.value
  FROM dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListSymbolName , ',') f1
  JOIN dbo.ParmsTolist(@ListOpenPrice , ',') f2
    on f1.row_num = f2.row_num
 WHERE f1.value is not null
    and rtrim(f1.value) <> ''

The query fails when the parameters are passed from my c# code.

--set @ListSymbolName = 'AA.P,AADR,'
--set @ListOpenPrice =  '76.55,37.6,'


I will test again and send you the results.

Error:

Failed to convert parameter value from a String to a Decimal.

I need to build the ListOpenPrice values to decimal.

I tried this;

strSymbolName = strSymbolName + values[0] + strComma;
                strOpenPrice = strOpenPrice + Convert.ToDecimal(values[2]) + strComma;
                strHighPrice = strHighPrice + Convert.ToDecimal(values[3]) + strComma;

Same error: Failed to convert parameter value from a String to a Decimal.

How do I resolve this?

Evidently I need to Cast in the stored proc.

I'd need to see your code to be able to have any idea why you are getting an error like that. But either your SP has the wrong datatype set for the parameter. Or you are creating a parameter in code of the wrong datatype. Or you really are trying to assign the wrong value to the parameter.

You should be able to step through your code and debug it?

Stepping thru does not help.

SQL Server is seeing the following as a string: "34.56" , notices the embedded decimal point and tries to handle the string as an unconverted decimal data type.
