I am using CR2008

I using a SQL command in my report.

I have a number values in a parameter and it allows multiple values

The synatx is as follows

where (MA_SchemeID IN {?Scheme} and {?Scheme}  = 0)

I am using {?Scheme}  = 0 to bring back all values, but this is not working

Can anybody help with the correct syntax?

Thanks

Thanks for the answer

I have changed it to or and get the following error message

An expression of non-boolean type specified in a context where a condition is expected near a ','

FWIW, Ido was correct about needing OR there.  As for the error ...

 If the parameter allows multiple values, then I would guess that {?Scheme}  = 0 is getting translated into something like (1,2,3) = 0, and that's what is causing the error.

 Try this

where (MA_SchemeID IN {?Scheme} OR 0 IN {?Scheme})

 Note that if you enter values for the parameter like 1, 2, 3 and 0, that would count as "all", because one of the parameter values is 0.

 Also, now that I think about it, if you think that you might be using the "all" option a lot, it might be more efficient to put the "all" test first:

where (0 IN {?Scheme} OR MA_SchemeID IN {?Scheme})

 It probably wouldn't make much difference.  It just occurred to me that it might be more efficient.

If that doesn't help, post the new formula.

If this is part of the selection formula then please post the full formula.

You're welcome.  FWIW, Ido really deserves some of the points, because he posted part of the solution.  If you like, you can ask to have the question re-opened and then split the points between us.
