string parameters in command

string parameters in command

string parameters in command

I have a string parameter called PlaceName

this works for single value p.Name = '{?PlaceName}'

but I want a multi select and this is erroring AND p.Name IN '{?PlaceName}'
I've also tried AND p.Name IN ('{?PlaceName}') and it errors too

help please


RE: string parameters in command

If I’m remembering correctly, for multiple value string parameters, you need to remove the quotes.


RE: string parameters in command

Thanks I'll try that.

RE: string parameters in command

I have always had issues with multiple value and strings in a command. Seems to me that I read that you have to do the equivalent of a Crystal Reports Join function (I do not recall currently how to do it).
