[SOLVED] In Operator in Where clause

Hello Everyone,

I appreciate your help on 'in' operator to handle in where clause and getting input from parameter.

Sample Code
------------
-DEFAULT &COUNTRY1='ENGLAND,JAPAN,ITALY';
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT *
WHERE COUNTRY IN ('&COUNTRY1');
END

I need like this Where COUNTRY IN ('ENGLAND','JAPAN','ITALY');

Since that you are using a DEFAULT value, you need to properly set the quotes in the default and in the WHERE clause such as below
-DEFAULT &COUNTRY1='''ENGLAND'',''JAPAN'',''ITALY''';
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT *
WHERE COUNTRY IN (&COUNTRY1);
END

If the variable &COUNTRY1 is going to be received from an HTML page, insure to set the control's properties Multiple to Multiple and Multiple Add quotes to Yes.
But at that moment the IN condition will not work. You will have to use the EQ condition since the parameters will be received with an OR between each selected values.
I think that using auto-prompt will result in the same behavior so IN clause will not work.
