Hi,

there are several possibilites to solve your problem:

Here are some examples:

D HstNameFix      S             50A
*------------------------------------------------------
C                   Eval      HstNameFix = '%Media%'

C/Exec SQL
C+ Delete from MyTable
C+            Where  Name Like Trim(:HstNameFix)
C/End-Exec

C                   Eval      HstName = '%Meier%'

C/Exec SQL
C+ Delete From MyTable
C+            Where Name Like :HstName
C/End-Exec

C                   Eval      HstName = 'Miller'

C/Exec SQL
C+ Delete From MyTable
C+            Where PosStr(Name, :HstName) > 0
C/END-EXEC

C                   Eval      HstNameFix = 'Brown'

C/Exec SQL
C+ Delete From MyTable

Hope this helps.

Subject: sql DELETE FROM with wildcard "%"



Hello,

Is this the correct way to write an embedded sql "DELETE FROM" statement
with a wildcard?
==============================================================
          C/EXEC SQL
          C+ delete from qtemp/tempf1 where ACITY not like :BCITY || '%'
          C/END-EXEC
==============================================================

Thanks,

Frank
