openquery in PowerBuilder datawindow?

openquery in PowerBuilder datawindow?

Does anyone know how to use SQL command openquery in PowerBuilder DataWindow -> Data source?
I try to write it this way but it does not work:
(Error meessage: The argument (RETRIEVAL_ARGUMENT) defined for the select statement was not referenced)

DECLARE @Sql VARCHAR(8000), @MO varchar(10)
SET @Sql = 'SELECT fields FROM table WHERE field IN '+ @MO
SET @Sql = 'SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY(database, ''' + REPLACE(@Sql, '''', '''''') + ''')'

How to define the retrieval argument correctly?


RE: openquery in PowerBuilder datawindow?

You would be better off creating a stored procedure which returns the results from your select with the your retrieval parameter as an input. Then use the stored proc as the datasource for the datawindow.
