This should be pretty straight forward and easy...I need another set of eyes to look at this as I'm not getting any where.

I have the following code:
Declare  @Market Table(High int, low int, Question_Num smallint, limit int)
Declare @intQuestion int, @intBuy int, @intSell int, @fltLImit float, @Count int,@high float, @low float

 Insert into @Market (High,low,Question_Num,limit)
 Values
 (115,114,1,5),
 (115,114,2,5),
 (113,112,3,5),
 (111,110,4,5)
 

Set @intQuestion =4
Set @fltLimit= 5
Set @Count=0
		
 Select TOP 1 High +@Count
,Low+@Count
,@intQuestion as Question_Num
,Limit=@fltLimit
From @Market 	
Order by Question_Num Desc

Open in new window


It should return the results as (111, 110, 4,5); however it returns (115,114,4,5,).  If I modify my code so @intQuestion is commented out:
 Select TOP 1 High +@Count
,Low+@Count
--,@intQuestion as Question_Num
,Limit=@fltLimit
From @Market 	
Order by Question_Num Desc

Open in new window


I get the correct values of (111,110,5).  Anyone have any idea's what's going on here...?

Thanks!

>Insert into @Market
Change this temp table to #Market, and rerun.

>High +@Count
Not that it affects the return set, as @Count = 0, but what's the purpose of this?

@Market is actually a table in my db (dbo.Market), I just made it a table variable for ease of posting...Correct me if I'm wrong, it shouldn't matter if the data is coming from a table, temp table or a table variable...

@Count normally isn't zero, but I zeroed it out to try and debug things....This is a segment of my code that is causing me the problem.

Changed @intQuestion to @fltLimit  and it does the same thing.
Select TOP 1 High +@Count
,Low+@Count
,@fltLimit as Question_Num
,Limit=@fltLimit
,high
,@low
From Market_Simulation 	
Order by Question_Num Desc

Ravik....
That worked.  What is going on?  I know that the order by clause is the last to execute, but why is this causing a problem?

Try to Change the db field Question_Num to anything else and try your first code it will run perfectly

Declare  @Market Table(High int, low int, Question_Numx smallint, limit int)
Declare @intQuestion int, @intBuy int, @intSell int, @fltLImit float, @Count int,@high float, @low float

 Insert into @Market (High,low,Question_Numx,limit)
 Values
 (115,114,1,5),
 (115,114,2,5),
 (113,112,3,5),
 (111,110,4,5)
 

Set @intQuestion =4
Set @fltLimit= 5
Set @Count=0
		
 Select TOP 1 High +@Count
,Low+@Count
,@intQuestion as Question_Num
,Limit=@fltLimit
From @Market 	
Order by Question_Numx Desc
