Hello,

The error Incorrect syntax near '>'. is returned when I executed
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (HOUR, @hours, @LastUpdateTime);
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (MINUTE, @minutes, @LastUpdateTime);
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (SECOND, @seconds, @LastUpdateTime);
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (MILLISECOND, @milliseconds, @LastUpdateTime); 

SELECT @LastUpdateTime AS 'sp_configure options last updated'; 

IF EXISTS 
(select @LastUpdateTime > DATEADD(DAY, -1, GETDATE()))

BEGIN 
RAISERROR('Error 1, level 11', 11, 1)
    RETURN
END

Open in new window


How can I resolve?

Thanks

Regards

Not sure what your query is trying to do, but the error is throws because you can't put comparison operators in the select part of the query. They have to be in a where clause.
Try this:

IF EXISTS 
(select 1
where	@LastUpdateTime > DATEADD(DAY, -1, GETDATE()))

What is it you're trying to achieve? This is from the Technet:

A RAISERROR severity of 11 to 19 executed in the TRY block of a TRY…CATCH construct causes control to transfer to the associated CATCH block.

Since you're raising an error with severity 11, you should probably put it inside a try...catch construct.

SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (HOUR, @hours, @LastUpdateTime);
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (MINUTE, @minutes, @LastUpdateTime);
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (SECOND, @seconds, @LastUpdateTime);
 SELECT @LastUpdateTime = DATEADD (MILLISECOND, @milliseconds, @LastUpdateTime); 

SELECT @LastUpdateTime AS 'sp_configure options last updated'; 

BEGIN TRY

IF EXISTS (	select	1
			where	@LastUpdateTime > DATEADD(DAY, -1, GETDATE()))
	Begin
	RAISERROR('Error 1,	level 11', 11, 1)
	End

END TRY

BEGIN CATCH

	DECLARE @ErrorMessage NVARCHAR(4000);
    DECLARE @ErrorSeverity INT;
    DECLARE @ErrorState INT;

    SELECT @ErrorMessage = ERROR_MESSAGE(),
           @ErrorSeverity = ERROR_SEVERITY(),
           @ErrorState = ERROR_STATE();

    -- Use RAISERROR inside the CATCH block to return 
    -- error information about the original error that 
    -- caused execution to jump to the CATCH block.
    RAISERROR (@ErrorMessage, -- Message text.
               @ErrorSeverity, -- Severity.
               @ErrorState -- State.
               )
END CATCH

Open in new window


You can replace the code in the catch block with your own error handling code if you like.
