I have an SQL statement :

SELECT ... WHERE YEAR = XXXX and MONTH = YY or YEAR = YYYY and MONTH < ZZ

I need to create set of all months with year  which will be included , for example
for  WHERE YEAR = 2012 and MONTH = 04 or YEAR = 2013 and MONTH > 5

it will be  (04/2012, 06/2013, 07/2013, ...) , the upper limit will be the current year and month

or
WHERE YEAR = 2012 and MONTH < 03 or YEAR = 2013 and MONTH > 5

it will be  (01/2008,.......02/2012, 06/2013,....)  the lower limit will be 01/2008

Any suggestions

This is tricky. You can try as given below.


Ex.1. YEAR = 2012 and MONTH = 04 or YEAR = 2013 and MONTH > 5

WHERE TO_DATE(YEAR||MONTH||'01', 'yyyymmdd') = TO_DATE('2012'||'04'||'01', 'yyyymmdd') or TO_DATE(YEAR||MONTH||'01', 'yyyymmdd') > TO_DATE('2013'||'05'||'01', 'yyyymmdd')


Ex.2. YEAR = 2012 and MONTH < 03 or YEAR = 2013 and MONTH > 5

WHERE TO_DATE(YEAR||MONTH||'01', 'yyyymmdd') < TO_DATE('2012'||'03'||'01', 'yyyymmdd') or TO_DATE(YEAR||MONTH||'01', 'yyyymmdd') > TO_DATE('2013'||'05'||'01', 'yyyymmdd')

As I understand it, sniger wants to write a piece of Java code that takes an arbitrary SQL SELECT statement that includes some WHERE clauses on the YEAR and MONTH columns and turns it into a list of months and years that could be returned by the statement.

I'm wondering where this requirement came from.

ok, I got around the problem, by creating a dummy record and running SQL on it, to create my columns

My comment does not deserve points, as it offers no solutions.

sniger,

It sounds like you solved the problem yourself, without any of the comments in this question contributing to the solution. In this case, it's preferable for you to post your solution, then accept your own comment, without awarding points to any comment that did not actually contribute. If you do not want to post your solution, it's preferable that you request that this question be deleted instead.
