[SOLVED] SQL Passthru

I am trying to use a SQL passthru in my webfocus report . It seems that the SQL statement is working because it displays the results in my output but does not go on with the rest of the code to create the report.

Could some please help me with this problem. I'm wanting to put the results in a hold file to be used in my report.

Thanks!!!!!

Unless you use SQL sqlenginename, (like SQL SQLMSS or SQL SQLDB2) it is not doing SQL passthru. It is just processing an SQL statement against the FOCUS Master files.

At the end of your SQL try

TABLE ON TABLE HOLD AS EFFJOBS1
END

TABLE FILE EFFJOBS1
PRINT
NBRJOBS_PIDM........

Darin, that didn't work either. Any other suggestions?

Here's a valid SQL passthru statement. Does yours look like this?

SQL DB2
SELECT 
MIN(BASEL.TIME_D.TIME_DIM_KEY) AS TIME_DIM_KEY,
BASEL.TIME_D.CALENDAR_YEAR,
COUNT(*) AS COUNT
FROM BASEL.TIME_D
GROUP BY BASEL.TIME_D.CALENDAR_YEAR
ORDER BY BASEL.TIME_D.CALENDAR_YEAR
;
TABLE ON TABLE HOLD AS H001
END

TABLE FILE H001
PRINT TIME_DIM_KEY
BY CALENDAR_YEAR PAGE-BREAK
HEADING
"COUNT: <COUNT"
END

You need the SQL ENGINE statement before the SQL SELECT statement or specify the type of DBMS in the SQL SELECT statement (SQL DB2 SELECT...).
