Thanks - I thought I had tried that but apparently not.

Now I just need to explore the wildcarding options.

Hi Jon

Would it work to use LIKE(?) - so it could generate a parameter for that? TYPE LIKE('?') is looking for a match for the string that is a question mark, seems to me early this evening!

Cheers

Has anyone been able to use a SELECT that includes a LIKE clause in the SQL when deploying SQL statements with IWS?

Unless I'm missing a PTF or something it doesn't seem to work - mainly because it does not recognize the ? as a parameter marker when included in a LIKE.

So SELECT * FROM ABC WHERE TYPE = ? generates a named parameter that can be associated with data from the URL

SELECT * FROM ABC WHERE TYPE LIKE('?') does not generate a parameter so there is nothing to associate.

The docs don't help as they don't list any limitations on what the SQL can and cannot do.
