Hi

I would like to add a where clause that if the 2 last chars in the field ID = '00' or '01' .

That way, i will get all the PO ID that finish with 00 or 01.

How can i do that?

thanks for your help.


SELECT DISTINCT ID, SCHED_NUM, SOURCE_ID, DEST_ID FROM LCLRPT.LCL_ORD_AUD WHERE SOURCE_ID IN ('21','24','03','60','67','34','57')

But note that renders any index unusuable, so it might introduce performance penalities.

What type of field is "ID"? Integer?

If it is integer then you would have to convert to string first, then use: SUBSTR(STRING_ID, -2) IN ('00','01')

But also note that using functions like this is not great for performance as indexes won't be used - unless you also create a function based index to suit.

Not sure which OpenStack Certification to get?

So you’ve realized you might want to get certified in OpenStack, but you’re not sure what the benefits might be or even which one you should take. You know there are several certification courses you can choose from, but how do you know which one is right for you?

The field that i have is a generic number with 12 numbers. Ex: '201412161823'

let me give it a try.

Thanks

Another option could be to create a virtual column with the SUBSTR... and then create an index upon that new virtual column ;-)

If the field is a number datatype, there is no need to convert it to a string.  The SUBSTR function call will do an implicit conversion for you.

However, be aware that if you are looking for 00 or 01 and the field contains a single digit number (i.e. 1) it will not be found because there is no leading 0.  If a single digit could happen and you want to select that row, you would have to do the conversion to character yourself and account for adding leading 0s.

to do the conversion to character yourself and account for adding leading 0s
-> using LPAD function

The SUBSTR function call will do an implicit conversion for you.
-> Yes, but you definitely should use a conversion function (TO_CHAR) whenever using numeric values in "string-oriented" functions! It's far more "readable" and imho a better/proper coding style/pattern. Implicit conversions may cause weird problems which in trun might be hard to find...

If you need to add leading 0s and you want to do an explicit conversion, why use both TO_CHAR and LPAD?  TO_CHAR is capable of the padding required in this scenario without an additional function call.

While in most cases I would use explicit conversion, on number to string, there really isn't much environmental factors that could change the outcome.  Date to string absolutely.  An implicit conversion would tend to be a little faster performance wise as well.

I'm not sure what you mean by the field being a "generic number". Is it a varchar2 datatype or a number datatype. If characters, the substring method suggested (i.e. substr(field,-2) in ('00',01') will work. If it's a number you can use - where mod(field,100) in (0,1)

Thanks a lot for all your help.

It was finally not to hard to do what i needed. Substr was perfect.

Thanks again to all of you that help me understand multiple options.
