Dynamically select data with 20 input parameters

Hi Experts,
Now i have created a subscreen with more than 20 fields on it. these fields are defined by parameters, not select options. user can input any fileds for these input parameters.
So now i should write codes to select data from database according the user input. Is there any easy way for me to write it? I heard about dynamically SQLs, but i don't know how to use it.
Thanks a lot!

you forgot to mention why you needed dynamic SQL : I guess that when user lets a field blank, you must not perform selection on it.
The easiest is ( FIELD1 = P_FIELD1 OR FIELD1 = space ) AND ( FIELD2 = P_FIELD2 OR FIELD2 = space ) AND etc. Even if it seems repetitive, I advise you to keep the SQL static instead of dynamic, because in this latter case, I think the code will be a little bit less clear.
Of course, if you argue that there are other requirements, then maybe it's worth re-evaluating the solution.
If you need more information, just look at ABAP examples in your system (SE38, Environment, Examples, ABAP examples -> ... -> Dynamic conditions)

  • Hierarchy on HANA Calculation View with Optional Input Parameters Fails

    Has anyone succeeded in building a hierarchy on top of a calculation view with optional input parameters, where an input parameter is not filled?
    The original requirement came from the wish to create a parent child hierarchy on a calculation view that was copied into the customer space from a HANA Live Financial Statement query view, but I have found the following when creating a simple level hierarchy on a calculation view that consumes one table. The Calculation View has one Input Parameter where the 'mandatory' box is unchecked.
    Calculation view reads ECC table FAGLFLEXT
    Simple level based hierarchy on fields PRCTR, RACCT and SEGMENT
    Input parameter is used as a filter for PRCTR with logic ("EMPTY" = '$$P_PROFITCTR$$' or "PRCTR" = '$$P_PROFITCTR$$')
    When I run the view I see the following behaviour in HANA Studio and Analysis for Excel
    Before building the hierarchy I could run the view with or without the Input Parameter
    After building the hierarchy I can run the view with the Input Parameter filled, but it fails when the Input Parameter is not filled.
    Error message is "error: search table error:  [2426] missing placeholder; missing value for mandatory parameter P_PROFITCTR"
    P_PROFITCTR is not a mandatory parameter, but the selection for the hierarchy view thinks it should be. I don't find any notes around this issue, so I don't think it's version related, however the version I have used for this test is 1.00.70.
    It's a shame we can't currently build the hierarchy as the parent child relationship is provided in HANA Live view NewGLFinancialStatementQuery.

    Hi Ken,
    We have been facing similar issue. We have even tried to set default value and as optional parameter. View still fails to create hierarchy (we are not using HANA live). As mentioned on page 97 of HANA modelling guide input parameter is mandatory from engine point of view. Hierarchy is generated as column view during the initial activation of calculation view and therefore expect a value by caller.
    This seems to be a product error. Some one from HANA development team should explain this issue in detail. I would expect someone like Thomas Jung reply to us.
    At the moment, we cant use input parameter for date prompt which gives us calendar popup feature for date selection. Hierarchies just don't work with input parameter. We are missing something.

  • Absolute dynamic select query with dynamic join and where

    Has anyone ever tried creating an absolutely dynamic SELECT query with dynamic Join and Where conditions.
    I have a requirement of creating such a query in an Utility Class, and i have written the code. But its throwing my sysntax errors.
    Please let me know where am I going wrong OR is it really possible to create such a dynamic Query??
          FROM ( (ME->TABLE1)  inner join ( me->table2 )
          on ( on_condition ) )
          WHERE (me->where_fields).

    It worked for me in a following way:
    select * into corresponding fields of table <result_table>
            from (join_string)
            where (l_where).
    Where the contents of join_string were dynamically build using concatenation. So it will be something like
    concatenate ME->TABLE1 'as a INNER JOIN' me->table2 'as b ON (' into join_string separated by space.
    add here matching/reference colums, something like
    concatenate 'a~' me->TABLE1_JOIN_COL into temp1.
    concatenate 'b~' me->TABLE2_JOIN_COL into temp2.
    concatenate join_string temp1 '=' temp2 into join_string separated by space.
    concatenate join_string ')' into join_string separated by space.
    And then use similar approach for l_where variable.

  • Dynamic select list with display,return val & join condition issue.

    I am having a dynamic select list with display, return value
    say for example my select statement is
    select distinct dname d, deptno r
    from dept dt
    right join emp e on (e.deptno=dt.deptno)
    where (condition)
    when i tried this query for my select list, it is not working. It saying that
    " LOV query is invalid, a display and a return value are needed, the column names need to be different. If your query contains an in-line query, the first FROM clause in the SQL statement must not belong to the in-line query. "
    I am not able to understand the problem. Can anyone help me out with this issue?

    Shouldn't your join have dept as the driving table?
    select distinct dname d, deptno r
    from dept dt
    right join emp e on (dt.deptno = e.deptno)
    where (condition)
    Or using older Oracle standard join
    select distinct dname d, deptno r
    from dept dt, emp e
    where (dt.deptno (+) = e.deptno) AND (OTHER WHERE condition)
    (Since a right join is just getting the values from the driving table that are NOT in the associated table)
    select distinct dname d, deptno r
    from dept dt
    WHERE dt deptno NOT IN (SELECT deptno FROM emp) AND (OTHER where condition)

  • Dynamic select list with one static 'not_listed" option

    Hi guys,
    I want to create a dynamic select list with one static 'not_listed' option.
    One possible alternative is to add the 'not_listed' record into database, but I really dont want to go that way unless there is no other way around.
    Can anyone shed some lights on this?
    Many thanks,

    As usual : "It depends"...
    If you have a foreign key defined on that field, Scott's reply won't work - unless you define '0 - Not listed' in the database. You can use selec 'not listed' d, to_number(null) r from dual though...
    Another - more declarative way - is in the on 'Edit Page Item' page, in the 'List of Values' region set 'Display Null' to 'Yes' and 'Null Display Value' to ' - Not listed - '.

  • DBMS_SCHEDULER.CREATE_PROGRAM with Optional input parameters

    I have a procedure that has a number of "optional" parameters.

    Yes you can do it.
    You can defined default values for program parameters, but this values are "constants". So if your default value of parameter is defined by function call you have a problem, because you have to specify this parametr every time.

  • Crystal Report with standard Input-Parameters in InfoView

    Hi there,
    i've created a crystal report which has non-optional input parameters, e.g, Date from ... Date to ...
    I've managed to fill this parameter with standard parameters if the user does not choose a value. e.g. date is today - 14 days.
    If i start the report in crystal and do not enter a input-parameter, it gets it input parameer automatically, see:
    (if not hasvalue({?PARA_TA_von}) then ({PW_BO_HU_TA.LTAP-WDATU}>=CurrentDate-14) else ({PW_BO_HU_TA.LTAP-WDATU}>={?PARA_TA_von}))
    It works perfectly in crystal. But if i start the Report in Webintelligence Infoview, it doesn't work and i get the message to enter the input-parameters....
    Any idea ?

    Hi Ingo,
    I have tried the sample reports and other crystal reports created with data sources other than SAP which all work fine. The problem happens on all clients and the server when running reports with SAP data source.
    I did find an error in the Tomcat logs.
    [/SAP].[jsp] Thread [http-8080-Processor24];  Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/crystaldecisions/Utilities/LengthLimitedDataInputStream
    I did manage to run one report which had 4 records but the other reports which vary from 432 - 2500 records return the error found in the tomcat logs.
    I will be installing BOE XI 3.1 on my desktop to see if the still issue occurs in this release.
    Thanks and Regards,

  • Calling report from a form with user input parameters

    I am new to Oracle reports. I have an application coded in 6i. I am currently running the application in Oracle Forms Builder 9i. There are also few reports which are called from the forms. Since the application was developed in 6i, the report was called using Run_Product. The forms pass a set of user parameters to the report using the parameter list pl_id. The syntax used was Run_Product(REPORTS, 'D:\Report\sales.rdf', SYNCHRONOUS, RUNTIME,FILESYSTEM, pl_id, NULL);
    I learnt that the Run_product doesnt work in 9i and we need to use run_report_object. I have changed the code to use run_report_object and using web.show_document () i am able to run the report from the form. There are 2 parameters that need to be passed from forms to reports. The parameters are from_date and to_date which the user will be prompted to enter on running the form. In the report, the initial values for these parametes are defined. So, the report runs fine for the initial value always. But when i try to change the user inputs for the form_date and to_date, the report output doesnt seem to take the new values, instead the old report with the initial values(defined in the report) runs again.
    Can someone give me the code to pass the user defined parameters to the report from the forms? I have defined a report object in the forms node as REPTEST and defined a parameter list pl_id and added form_date and to_date to pl_id and used the following coding:
    vrep := RUN_REPORT_OBJECT (vrepid,pl_id);
    But this doesnt work.
    Also, Should the parameters defined in the forms and reports have the same name?

    Thanks for the quick response Denis.
    I had referred to the document link before and tried using the RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC procedure and ENCODE functions as given in the doc and added the following SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY in the RUN_REPORT_OBJECT_PROC :
    But this also dint work. Please help me understand what difference does setting paramform=no OR paramform=yes make?
    In the report, i have defined the user parameters as FROM_DATE and TO_DATE respectively so that they match the form datablock BLK_INPUT items FROM_DATE and TO_DATE.
    My WHEN_BUTTON_PRESSED trigger is as below:
    report_id report_object;

  • Select data with SDO_RELATE in lat long coordinate system(8307) in 10gR2

    Hi all,
    I have problem with selecting data from table.
    Data are in lat lon coordinate system 8307.
    These requests don't return any data:
    SELECT ISSUE_ID FROM MAP_ISSUES WHERE SDO_FILTER(GEOMETRY, sdo_geometry (2003, 8307, null, sdo_elem_info_array (1,1003,1),sdo_ordinate_array(-180,-90, 180,-90, 180,90, -180,90, -180,-90)) ) = 'TRUE';
    SELECT ISSUE_ID FROM MAP_ISSUES WHERE SDO_RELATE(GEOMETRY, sdo_geometry (2003, 8307, null, sdo_elem_info_array (1,1003,1),sdo_ordinate_array(-180,-90, 180,-90, 180,90, -180,90, -180,-90)), 'MASK=ANYINTERACT' ) = 'TRUE'
    Optimized polygon does return all data correctly:
    SELECT ISSUE_ID FROM MAP_ISSUES WHERE SDO_FILTER(GEOMETRY, sdo_geometry (2003, 8307, null, sdo_elem_info_array (1,1003,3),sdo_ordinate_array (-180,-90,180,90)) ) = 'TRUE'
    Smaller polygon select data correctly too.
    SELECT ISSUE_ID FROM MAP_ISSUES WHERE SDO_FILTER(GEOMETRY, sdo_geometry (2003, 8307, null, sdo_elem_info_array (1,1003,1),sdo_ordinate_array (52,-7, 54,-7 , 54,-5 , 52,-5, 52,-7)) ) = 'TRUE'
    I have tried changed polygon to be clockwise, counter clockwise, make the area a bit smaller( 160 instead of 180, 89 instead of 90) nothing has helped.
    My explanation than was, that Earth is sphere and each defined polygon defines TWO polygons in the sphere and there is convention that the smaller is chosen to select data. It would make sense along the previous results, but than I found one post which says that this is bug http://www.frontoracle.com/oracle-database/703/180703-size-of-are-of-interest-smaller-equals.html
    I have found in other thread that max only 1/2 of Earth could be selected Different results using SDO_RELATE with polygon and rectangle type but it seems not true, because optimized bounding box works fine!
    What is right? Is there anything in official documentation?
    Is it bug.
    Max 1/2 of Earth could be selected in one request.
    Each polygon defines two areas in the Earth and the smaller one is used to do spatial SDO_RELATE operation?

    A bug, or limititation, whichever you choose. IMHO if you ask for something, and don't get what you expect, it is a bug that could be fixed.
    But for 10g anywho, the following applies, which is why I choose 120 degree breaks for my code as it is less than 180...
    The following size limits apply with geodetic data:
    ■ No polygon element can have an area larger than one-half the surface of the Earth.
    ■ In a line, the distance between two adjacent coordinates cannot be greater than or
    equal to one-half the perimeter (a great circle) of the Earth.
    If you need to work with larger elements, first break these elements into multiple
    smaller elements and work with them. For example, you cannot create a geometry
    representing the entire ocean surface of the Earth; however, you can create multiple
    geometries, each representing part of the overall ocean surface. To work with a line
    string that is greater than or equal to one-half the perimeter of the Earth, you can add
    one or more intermediate points on the line so that all adjacent coordinates are less
    than one-half the perimeter of the Earth.

  • How to default the Document Type in Dynamic selections linked with DDF LDB?

    Hello all,
    A report is associated with Logical database DDF. In the selection screen we have Dynamic selections screen in which Document type is one of the fields. As per the requirement, this field document type(BLART) needs to be filled by default on certain actions done by the user. To be more precise when user clicks on a particluar check box, then document type values from a customized table should appear in that parameter in dynamic selections.
    Query here is I am not able to track the selection screen name for those dynamic fields. Can you please guide me in knowing the selection screen name for document type so that I can append values into it upon certain actions. I tried to check in the LDB 'DDF'  but I could not get any apt information there.
    Thanks in advance.

    In the report event at selection-screen output, based on the user action you can do that try like below:
    at selection-screen output.
    if p_checkbox = 'X'.  "Checkbox checked
        s_blart-low = 'F'.
       s_blart-option = 'EQ'.
      s_blart-sign = 'I'.
      append s_blart.

I have assumed that if three dates are equal the function return true. I am not sure whether you wanted to exclude the boundary dates. In case you want to exclude those dates just replace '<=' with '<' symbol. The code could have been smarter but in short time I thought this might help.
    public class DateRange {
      static boolean compareDate(String startDate,String inputDate,String endDate)
              int j,k,l;
              String s[],i[],e[];          
              s=startDate.split("-", 3);
              i=inputDate.split("-", 3);
              e=endDate.split("-", 3);
              if(l>0|| j>0 || k>0)
                   return false;
              if(j<=0 && k<0)
                   return true;
              if(l>0|| j>0 || k>0)
                   return false;
              if(j<=0 && k<0)
                   return true;
              if(l>0|| j>0 || k>0)
                   return false;
              if(j<=0 && k<=0) 
                   return true;
                return false;
         public static void main(String[] args) {
              String startDate="1992-04-03";
              String inputDate="1992-02-03";
              String endDate="1992-02-03";
    Plese let me know if this works.

  • Dynamic select list with displaying a description

    I want to have a select List, my list refer to a lov, and the lov refer to a table contaning 2 columns : code and description,
    The list must display only the code, but I want having an item beside the list dispaling the description....
    I have used a select list with the query :
    select code d, code r from prog_theme order by 1 desc
    and Now : what is the way for displaying the description

    Ok, here goes the top down approach...
    In the HTML header of my page, i have this reference to a js file containing the javascript - <script src="#WORKSPACE_IMAGES#108.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    Then in an HTML Region I have the following code to create the divs that will be shown and hidden - <div id="divREGION" class="divs">Select region to get list of countries.</div>
    <div id="divCOUNTRY" class="divs">Select country to get list of cities.</div>
    <div id="divCITY" class="divs">Select city and then press "Get Employees". </div>
    Note that these divs contain static content. You may be able to create dynamic content for these divs by creating dynamic query regions and putting div tags around the region (i havent tried this, it may require template modification).
    The select boxes have this code in the "HTML form elements attributes" - onFocus="javascript:showHideDiv(this,true)" onBlur="javascript:showHideDiv(this,false)"
    This onFocus and onBlur call the showHideDiv() function, passing in the object reference of the select box and a true/false to show/hide the related div.
    The actual javascript function that is contained in the 108.js file is:
    function showHideDiv(objThis, inBool){
         var divid = "div" + objThis.id.substring(3);
         if (inBool) {
         else {
    That function in turn calls either the ShowDiv() or HideDiv() functions, depending on the true or false, passing in the ID of the div to be changed...
    function ShowDiv(divid){
         eval('document.all'+ '["' + divid + '"]' + '.style' +'.display = "inline"');
    function HideDiv(divid){
         eval('document.all'+ '["' + divid + '"]' + '.style' +'.display = "none"');
    Hope this helps.

  • Selecting data with cursors on an X-Y Graph

    I would like to make an interactive XY plot with two cursors. These
    cursors will allow the user to select a range of data, and send the
    selected data to an array. Sending the data to an array and referencing
    the positions to the array is no problem, but I cannot get the two
    cursors to work simultaneously.  I am monitoring the positions on
    the front panel, and both indicators display the same data. How do I
    set the property nodes to treat each cursor as separate, and collect
    separate data from each? Thanks.

    Before you can get the cursor index or cursor position, you have to first set the active cursor.
