OPENQUERY INSERT not recognizing linked server

Posted on 2014-09-19

I have created a sql script to insert data into local database table using an OPENQUERY against a DB2 table.
I know that the linked server and field names are okay as a SELECT script validated this.  

When I flopped my code to become an INSERT into statement using OPENQUERY i received this error message.

OLE DB provider "DB2OLEDB" for linked server "KBM400MFG" returned message "Token *N was not valid. Valid tokens: *N. SQLSTATE: 42601, SQLCODE: -104".
Msg 7321, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
An error occurred while preparing the query " SELECT  
                         
                          ,VMCTRY
                          ,VMNO
                          ,VMADR1
                          ,VMPFXN
                          ,VMPPHN
                          ,VMADR2
                          ,VMADR3                                    
                          ,VMCOUN  
                           ,VMPZIP  

      
   FROM  [KBM400MFG].[FLVENDM]
   " for execution against OLE DB provider "DB2OLEDB" for linked server "KBM400MFG".



What am I missing?  Below is my query code that is producing the error.  Any help given will be appreciated.




INSERT INTO DMFVENDORADDRESSENTITY2

 	SELECT		  'Delivery' as [AddressName]

You can't have a comma before the first column name:

SELECT  
                         
                          ,VMCTRY

should be:

SELECT  
                         
                          VMCTRY


And, to be safe, I'd add an alias name after the ) of the OPENQUERY:
...
FROM  [KBM400MFG].[FLVENDM]
   '
   )  AS oq
CROSS APPLY ...

I must be getting tired to have missed the comma on the first element.  I have progressed , but have new errors.

The errors are:
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 52
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'CROSS'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 52
Incorrect syntax near 'A-Z'.


the query is :

USE [DmStagingVD]
			
  UPDATE OPENQUERY([KBM400MFG],

				    RTRIM(VMPAD1) + RTRIM(LTRIM(VMPAD2)) AS [ADDRESS]

Move the CROSS APPLY to within the OPENQUERY():
 FROM  [KBM400MFG].[FLVENDM] AS A
    CROSS APPLY (SELECT PATINDEX(''%[ ][A-Z][A-Z] %'', [VMPAD3] + '' '') + 1 AS VMPAD3_start_of_state) AS StateFinder2      
   ')  

I'd also add an alias just to be safe, even though technically you may not have to:
 FROM  [KBM400MFG].[FLVENDM] AS A
    CROSS APPLY (SELECT PATINDEX(''%[ ][A-Z][A-Z] %'', [VMPAD3] + '' '') + 1 AS VMPAD3_start_of_state) AS StateFinder2      
   ') AS alias_name

Finally, you can't UPDATE an OPENQUERY.  If you want to do an UPDATE rather than a SELECT * FROM, you need to use EXEC ... AT [servername]

Interesting, OPENQUERY function not statement.

It seems, then, that you're just missing the "SET" part of the UPDATE:

USE [DmStagingVD]
                  


  UPDATE OPENQUERY([KBM400MFG],
 
       'SELECT(
                            RTRIM(VMPAD1) + RTRIM(LTRIM(VMPAD2)) AS [ADDRESS]

                           ,ISNULL(VMPFXN,'' '') as [ADDRESSFAX]
                           ,'' '' as [ADDRESSFAXNAME]

Ok I see now, I will modify my query to add the set statement with multiple columns and values like this:

   FROM  [KBM400MFG].[FLVENDM] As A  
      CROSS APPLY (SELECT PATINDEX(''%[ ][A-Z][A-Z] %'', [VMPAD3] + '' '') + 1 AS VMPAD3_start_of_state) AS StateFinder2      
 
SET <column_name> = <new_value> ,
       <column_name> = <new_value> ,
       <column_name> = <new_value> ,
       <column_name> = <new_value> ,
      <column_name> = <new_value> 

Open in new window


I will leave the select statement as is...

If the target db is DB2, DB2 does not support CROSS APPLY.  You'll need to compute that value differently.
