Help with TSQL syntax

Hi All,

I need a little help with my TSAQ syntax. When I try to create the sproc below it throws an error when I try to include the last line 'WHERE lt.LevelTest_MaxNum < LevelTestDaysUsed'

How do I include a Where clause that takes a value from its own recordset using 'AS'?

Kind regards

Abbey

----------------------------------------------------

BEGIN
SELECT  lt.LevelTest_RecId
      ,      lt.LevelTest_Label
      ,      lt.LevelTest_MaxNum
      ,      (SELECT COUNT(IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0)) FROM Tbl_Reg_Bilbao bb
                  WHERE IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0) = lt.LevelTest_RecId) AS LevelTestDaysUsed
                  
FROM Tbl_LevelTests lt

WHERE lt.LevelTest_MaxNum < LevelTestDaysUsed

END

you have to write it as

SELECT  lt.LevelTest_RecId
      ,      lt.LevelTest_Label
      ,      lt.LevelTest_MaxNum
      ,      (SELECT COUNT(IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0)) FROM Tbl_Reg_Bilbao bb
                  WHERE IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0) = lt.LevelTest_RecId) AS LevelTestDaysUsed
                  
FROM Tbl_LevelTests lt

WHERE lt.LevelTest_MaxNum < lt.LevelTestDaysUsed

No, it still does not allow it.

In valid col name 'LevelTestDaysUsed'

I think the solution is not to use a value As a col name. Instead I have simply re-used the entire Select Count line to compare it against 'lt.LevelTest_MaxNum'

This is not as clean looking but works well.

This might also work -
SELECT lt.LevelTest_RecId, lt.LevelTest_Label, lt.LevelTest_MaxNum
,COUNT(IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0)) AS LevelTestDaysUsed
FROM Tbl_LevelTests lt, Tbl_Reg_Bilbao bb
WHERE IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0) = lt.LevelTest_RecId
GROUP BY lt.LevelTest_RecId,lt.LevelTest_Label,lt.LevelTest_MaxNum
HAVING COUNT(IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0)) > lt.LevelTest_MaxNum

Real pain for performance and to maintain if you repeat the entire subquery.

Instead, you can use OUTER APPLY (or CROSS APPLY).  For example:



SELECT  lt.LevelTest_RecId
      ,      lt.LevelTest_Label
      ,      lt.LevelTest_MaxNum
                 
FROM Tbl_LevelTests lt
OUTER APPLY (
             SELECT COUNT(IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0)) AS LevelTestDaysUsed  
             FROM Tbl_Reg_Bilbao bb
                WHERE IsNull(bb.Reg_LevelTestDaySelected,0) = lt.LevelTest_RecId
) AS outer_apply_1
WHERE lt.LevelTest_MaxNum < outer_apply_1.LevelTestDaysUsed

Absolutely not!  That is if you care about performance.  

Scott has given you the solution using OUTER APPLY.
