Subject Re: [ib-support] parms in sql statements, NOT stored procedures
Author Lee Catlett
Thanks for the reply Doug, but I have literally dozens of these kinds of
select statements in the MSSQL application that work just fine, and there are
actually NO typo, which is unsual in itself. In the apps, there is the usuall
code like:

with qryOrder do begin
// Change parms for AdoQueries here to retrieve users orders
Parameters.ParamByName('ORDERID').Value:= lit('OrderID');
Parameters.ParamByName('USERID').Value:= sLoginID;

and here, ORDERID and USERID relate to the firstID and secondID in my initial
email.. Actually here is the query from my app that is changed in the above
code to whatever...


and this works great in MSSQL, but not in an IB query. If there was confusion
earlier, hope this clear up my question??
