Intermediate Table Variables

By Craig Cmehil

Leveraging SQLScript in Stored Procedures & User Defined Functions

You will learn

In this exercise you will modify the code of procedure get_po_header_data again to use a single tabular output. Existing queries will be reused based on intermediate table variables.
Please note - This tutorial is based on SPS11

Details


Step 1: Edit previous procedure

Return to your procedure called get_po_header_data.

Existing Procedure

Delete the output parameters which you defined in the last section.

Step 5: Add SELECT statement

Next, add another SELECT statement after the 2 previous SELECT statements as shown. This statement uses the previously defined table variables.

Step 6: Check complete code

The completed code should be very similar to this. If you do not wish to type this code, you can reference the solution web page at http://<hostname>:51013/workshop/admin/ui/exerciseMaster/?workshop=dev602&sub=ex2_12

PROCEDURE "dev602.procedures::get_po_header_data" (
           OUT EX_TOP_3_EMP_PO_COMBINED_CNT TABLE(
                    LOGINNAME NVARCHAR(12),
		CREATE_CNT INTEGER,
		CHANGE_CNT INTEGER,
		COMBINED_CNT INTEGER )  )
 		LANGUAGE SQLSCRIPT
 		SQL SECURITY INVOKER
 			--DEFAULT SCHEMA <default_schema_name>
 		READS SQL DATA AS

po_create_cnt =  SELECT COUNT(*) AS CREATE_CNT, "HISTORY.CREATEDBY.EMPLOYEEID"  AS EID
       FROM "dev602.data::PO.Header" WHERE PURCHASEORDERID IN (
         SELECT PURCHASEORDERID
             FROM "dev602.data::PO.Item"
           WHERE "PRODUCT.PRODUCTID" IS NOT NULL)
     GROUP BY  "HISTORY.CREATEDBY.EMPLOYEEID";

po_change_cnt =  SELECT COUNT(*) AS CHANGE_CNT, "HISTORY.CHANGEDBY.EMPLOYEEID" AS EID
       FROM "dev602.data::PO.Header"  WHERE PURCHASEORDERID IN (
              SELECT PURCHASEORDERID

        WHERE "PRODUCT.PRODUCTID" IS NOT NULL)
   GROUP BY  "HISTORY.CHANGEDBY.EMPLOYEEID";

EX_TOP_3_EMP_PO_COMBINED_CNT =
        SELECT emp.LOGINNAME, crcnt.CREATE_CNT, chcnt.CHANGE_CNT,  crcnt.CREATE_CNT +
		chcnt.CHANGE_CNT AS COMBINED_CNT
    		FROM "dev602.data::MD.Employees" as emp
    		LEFT OUTER JOIN :PO_CREATE_CNT AS crcnt
             ON emp.EMPLOYEEID = crcnt.EID
   		LEFT OUTER JOIN :PO_CHANGE_CNT AS chcnt
           ON emp.EMPLOYEEID = chcnt.EID
      	ORDER BY COMBINED_CNT DESC LIMIT 3;
