Select Statment not working

Select Statment not working

(OP)
I haven't touch ASP's in awhile. This code use to work when the database was in Oracle 8. Now that were on a different version of Oracle, 10g I think, I'm guessing that the (+) seen below needs to be written a different way to view the details of an old legacy database.

I also had to change the connect statement to establish a connection also. When I did, I was able to connect, but ran into this problem.

Should the (+) be written differently? Tried a google search but you can't search "(+)" and oracle since it doesn't really search for "(+)" in the search.

SQLA = "SELECT *"
SQLA = SQLA & " FROM EVENTS_VW, LOCATION_BLOCKS"
SQLA = SQLA & " WHERE INCD_EVENT_NUM = '" & eventnum & "' AND"
SQLA = SQLA & " EVENTS_VW.BLOCK_ID = LOCATION_BLOCKS.BLOCK_ID(+)"
set rs2 = my_conn.Execute(SQLA)

RE: Select Statment not working

The (+) syntax really means "outer join". Take a look here: http://www.dba-oracle.com/tips_oracle_left_outer_j...

I *think* the correct code would be:

CODE

SQLA = "SELECT *"
SQLA = SQLA & " FROM EVENTS_VW LEFT OUTER JOIN LOCATION_BLOCKS"
SQLA = SQLA & " On EVENTS_VW.BLOCK_ID = LOCATION_BLOCKS.BLOCK_ID"
SQLA = SQLA & " WHERE INCD_EVENT_NUM = '" & eventnum & "'" 

I'm not an Oracle guy, so this may not be 100% correct, but I do encourage you to give it a try.
