sql server complex query, then email IF

I am trying to run a sql query something like this:

I need to run this first statement in a loop, pulling  the where divisionInt = should be all the id's in  table 'bkgDivision'

then I need to know how many rows were returned. If more than 1 row is returned, I will execute a sendmail.

How would I write it up?

while ...

use admire
 select * from bkgReciepts where divisionInt = bkgDivision.id ...

   if more than 1 row  then
 ' i know what to put here
end if

next

you can write it as below

IF EXISTS( select * from bkgReciepts where divisionInt = bkgDivision.id ...)
BEGIN
 ' i know what to put here
END

Open in new window

The while that is a cursor  
An example   http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/1599/sql-server-cursor-example/
The syntax http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms181441(v=sql.90).aspx

If you are smart your select in the declare cursor has already a filter on the more than 1 rows returned  
group by divisionInt = bkgDivision.id ...
HAVING COUNT(*) > 1

Open in new window

"IF exists"  stands for >= 1 so not usable here

this code should find all the matching ids with one query, then cursor thru them to send the emails:



declare @id int
declare csrIds cursor static for
select bd.id
from bkgDivision bd
cross apply (
    select top (2) br.divisionInt
    from bkgReciepts br
    where
        br.divisionInt = bd.id
) AS br2
group by bd.id
having count(*) > 1

open csrIds

while 1 = 1
begin
    fetch next from csrIds into @id
    if @@FETCH_STATUS <> 0
        break
    --ADD code to send email for this id
end --while

deallocate csrIds

Sorry, I missed one thing.
@: ScottPletcher it worked perfectly.

Once I got more than 1 record  returned and I am sending an email, I need to reference that record in  the bkgDivision, where id = bd.int, and get the rest of the fields,
bkgDivision.email and bkgDivision.name

I am trying to put this as the message:

SET @Sub = 'You have  receipts that were not looked at. Please go to http://www.oorah.org/receipts/listbymanager.asp?id=' + CAST( @id AS varchar(20)) + ' and look at them.';


but in my email, I only get up to the +, I don't get anything after I try to cast.
Did I code something wrong?

Scott PletcherSenior DBACommented:
Not from a SQL Server standpoint.

As to whether or not that specific type of embedded link works in your specific email server and service, I don't know.

Try removing the " + ' and look at them.' " and see if the link works then.

You are right, even this gets cut of:

SET @Sub = 'You have  receipts that were not looked at.
 Please go to http://www.oorah.org/receipts/listbymanager.asp?id=37 and look at them.';

it stops here:listbymanag

Scott PletcherSenior DBACommented:
That looks like a truncation issue.

What is the variable declaration for @Sub?

Are any other SQL variable(s) truncating a value?
