Yep - it needs the quotes removed - but when you do that you seem to be
left with manually encoding any wildcarding in the URL which is a pain. I
was looking for a way to incorporate the wildcarding in the SQL that way
the request was simpler. Currently I have to code things like
http://ideveloper:10010/web/services/SQL/%25c%25

Better than nothing I guess.

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.
