Big SQL queries and passing Variables in the SQL queries
Hello, I'm trying to execute some big SQL queries in TestComplete to fetch the data for the scripts. I'm able to execute small and simple queries, but when it comes to execute a query which has more than 1 lines, I see errors. The error is never so informative to help me fix the problem. does anyone know how to overcome this issue?
here's a snapshot of the query. I understand that there are quite a few special characters in the Query, but how to deal with this situation?
Also, I'm trying to parameterize the SQL using a variable, but I've not had any success so far. any pointers for that would help too.
Solved! Go to Solution.
if one line works but not two lines....I guess the problem is in concatenating .
The query sending to SQL should a single string.
to concatenate string in java script you can use + sign for more read this
first create string like....
str1 = "select distinnct...." ; str1 = str1+"where ..blah blah" ; str1 = str1+"AND..blah blah" ; str1 = str1+"order by ..blah blah" ;
and then send to your object
var set conn.Execute(str1)
special characters doesn't matter as far as they are in side of string

Why automate? I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy. Sleep is a requirement. So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Thank you, NisHera
I got it working. I didn't have to split it did it in a similar fashion but without creating the string variable.
here's the working code:
