Hello,

How do I write a query to return value 1 when it is the beginning of the year as a Reference number.
The requirement is the Reference number should start with 1 at the beginning of the year.

Cheers

Without you giving more information I can only provide the following query:
SELECT CASE
	WHEN CAST(GETDATE() AS DATE) = DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy, 0, GETDATE()), 0) THEN 1
	ELSE 999
END

Open in new window

NOTE: Replace 999 with the value or formula that you want when the date is not the beginning of the year.

Thanks Vitor,
My earlier query was to find max value
	SET NOCOUNT ON;  	
	
	   declare @SQL varchar(500) = null
	  -- NONCLUSTERED INDEX [NIX__UNQ__UID_]

	SET @SQL = 'SELECT MAX ('    
        
			SET @SQL = @SQL +  '[' +  @ColumnName1 + ']'  + ' +1 ) ' +   + ' FROM  [dbo].[' + @tableName + '] '  		
	
	  SET @SQL = @SQL  	
	  
	  EXEC(@SQL)

Open in new window

But, now the need is give value refno 1 if it a new year and refno 1 is not found for new year

Can't see where you're storing the MAX value so I invented a value called @NextValue but you should use the correct name:
IF CAST(GETDATE() AS DATE) = DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy, 0, GETDATE()), 0)
	SET @NextValue = 1
ELSE 
	BEGIN
		SET NOCOUNT ON;  	
	
		declare @SQL varchar(500) = nullI

		SET @SQL = 'SELECT MAX ([' +  @ColumnName1 + ']'  + ' +1 ) ' +   + ' FROM  [dbo].[' + @tableName + ']'  		  
		EXEC(@SQL)
	END

Vitor I am trying your solution.

Pawan,
To explain:
The query needs to return refno:
The  refno in table should begin with 1 in a table every year.
If refno 1 is present then give the next value.

May be this...try

DECLARE @SQL VARCHAR(1000) = ''
DECLARE @ColumnName AS VARCHAR(100) = 'Qty01'
DECLARE @tableName AS VARCHAR(100) = 'table2'

SET @SQL = '
	
		SELECT 
		
				CASE 
						WHEN CAST(GETDATE() AS DATE) = DATEADD(yy, DATEDIFF(yy, 0, GETDATE()), 0) THEN 1 
				ELSE 
				
						MAX ([' +  @ColumnName + ']'  + ' +1 ) END Output'  
				
				+ ' FROM  [dbo].[' + @tableName + ']'  
			  
EXECUTE(@SQL)

Any suggestion for this one
ALTER PROCEDURE  [dbo].[L_SelectLastVal_FrmCol]
(
     @tableName varchar(100) = null,
	 @ColumnName1 varchar(100) = null
	
)
AS
BEGIN
	-- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
	-- interfering with SELECT statements.
	SET NOCOUNT ON;  	
	
	   declare @SQL varchar(500) = null
	  -- NONCLUSTERED INDEX [NIX__UNQ__UID_]



	SET @SQL = 'SELECT TOP 1 '    
        
			SET @SQL = @SQL +  '[' +  @ColumnName1 + ']'     + ' FROM  [dbo].[' + @tableName + ']  ORDER BY '  	+  '[' +  @ColumnName1 + ']'     +'DESC'	
	
	  SET @SQL = @SQL  	
	  
	  EXEC(@SQL)



		
   
	
END

Open in new window



And


ALTER PROCEDURE  [dbo].[MEDICAL_FindMaxSPRSpPayReq]
AS
BEGIN

        SELECT MAX(SPR#)+1
               FROM SIAL_PAT_REQT
		
				
END
