Hi All

(Warning:  SQL expert, Informix N00b)

I'm attempting to create a procedure where it returns a table of data, based on my experience with SQL Server doing the same, and could use some help.

From the '-- up to this point the proc' on down, can someone show me the syntax for a SELECT statement to be returned as a set?

Thanks in advance.
Jim

CREATE PROCEDURE rpt_sales_distribution (iYear int, iMonth int) AS

BEGIN

define iYear integer = 2014;
define iMonth integer = 4;
define iWeekNumber integer = 1;

define dtStart DATETIME YEAR TO DAY;
define dtEnd DATETIME YEAR TO DAY;

if iWeekNumber = 1 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-01"); 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-07");
elseif iWeekNumber = 2 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-08") ;
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-14");
elseif iWeekNumber = 3 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-15") ;
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-21");
elseif iWeekNumber = 4 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-22"); 
   let dtEnd = LAST_DAY(to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-07"));
end if;

-- up to this point the proc saves fine, but I'd like to make it return the below set
select 1 as week_id,
       11 as src_id, 
       '11 SY Agt Portal' as src_name 
      ,count(*) as seg
      ,sum(a.unitrate) as rev
      ,round(sum(a.unitrate)/count(*)) as avg
  from wsord_det a
      ,wsord_hdr b
      ,wsord_tkt c
 where b.orddate between dtStart_week1 and dtEnd_week1

By using dtStart and dtEnd in the WHERE clause, Are you not getting what you want?
select 1 as week_id,
       11 as src_id, 
       '11 SY Agt Portal' as src_name 
      ,count(*) as seg
      ,sum(a.unitrate) as rev
      ,round(sum(a.unitrate)/count(*)) as avg
  from wsord_det a
      ,wsord_hdr b
      ,wsord_tkt c
 where b.orddate between dtStart and dtEnd

(Sorry for the delay)

The below SQL returns a set
select 1 as week_id,
       11 as src_id, 
       '11 SY Agt Portal' as src_name 
      ,count(*) as seg
      ,sum(a.unitrate) as rev
      ,round(sum(a.unitrate)/count(*)) as avg
  from wsord_det a
      ,wsord_hdr b
      ,wsord_tkt c
 where b.orddate between dtStart and dtEnd

Open in new window

When I try to use variables here's the result..Returns multiple 'A syntax error has occured' lines

try this.
define dtStart DATETIME YEAR TO DAY, dtEnd DATETIME YEAR TO DAY

let dtStart = '2017-04-01'
let dtEnd = '2014-04-07'

select 1 as week_id,
       11 as src_id, 
       '11 SY Agt Portal' as src_name 
      ,count(*) as seg
      ,sum(a.unitrate) as rev
      ,round(sum(a.unitrate)/count(*)) as avg
  from wsord_det a
      ,wsord_hdr b
      ,wsord_tkt c
 where b.orddate between dtStart and dtEnd

I've moved to a different gig and can't continue this issue, so I'm going to close the question and spread the wealth around.  Thanks.
