Using COUNT FUN and CAST

50 New Member
SQL Value:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. "COUNT(tbl__UserLog._UserLog_ID) AS Count_Logins "
  2.  
Returns as varchar which is killing me, because my user interaction is loaded w/ sort features. Unfortunately the count_logins var getting posted to the script is an integer.
So I recieve :
Syntax error converting the varchar value 'Count_Logins' to a column of data type int.
When the post var gets compared to the AS Count_Logins var (in a Dynamic WHERE clause)....
If I convert the post var to a string - it returns no results?!?!

I have tried unsuccessfully to use CAST to convert the type w/ in the sql statement.

I don't even understand why the heck COUNT(tbl__User Log._UserLog_ID ) AS Count_Logins is not an INT by default!?!?

Any advice is so appreciated as I have researched/experimented now for hours unsuccessfully and need to go home like 1.5 hours ago.


thanks 2 you.

Hi, I'm trying to create a Stored Procedure that returns a recordset, but I want to be able to choose the ORDER BY clause in mijn parameter list of the Stored Procedure. Since CASE .. WHEN can only be used in the SELECT clause, I came up with the following: -- BEGIN SCRIPT -- DECLARE @blah AS VARCHAR(20) SET @blah = 'DOSSIER_CODE'

I was looking at the source code of linux or open BSD. What I found that lots of typedefs were used. For example, consider the offset in a file. It was declared as off_t offset; and off_t is typedefed as typedef long off_t; I wanted to know what advantage do we get by typedefs ? Why we did not declare
