x++ code to define or conditions in querybuildrange for different fields


I need OR condition for different fields in query range.

here is my code.

I have tried to keep different query range object but it is taking AND condition

qbr_ContractYr2 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, BeginningDate));
qbr_ContractYr2.value(QueryValue(sysquery::range(fromDt, toDt)));

qbr_ContractYr3 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, EndingDate));
qbr_ContractYr3.value(QueryValue(sysquery::range(fromDt, toDt)));


Even though i tried to keep same query range object it is taking AND condition.

qbr_ContractYr2 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, BeginningDate));
qbr_ContractYr2.value(QueryValue(sysquery::range(fromDt, toDt)));

qbr_ContractYr2 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, EndingDate));
qbr_ContractYr2.value(QueryValue(sysquery::range(fromDt, toDt)));


How will achieve OR condition for different fields in this case please suggest

  • You can use expressions,

  • The only difference between your two snippets is whether you're reusing the same variable or not. There is no difference at all in functionality; you're creating identical ranges in both cases.

    If you want to combine two ranges for different fields, you'll have to use expression in query ranges (which are ugly, but sometimes necessary).

    Can you please tell me how will i achieve this...actually, i saw this site but i didn't understand how to use it in my case

    Have you tired it? If so please show us your code.

    First i am trying with the 1st field..below code i tried

    qbr_ContractYr2 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, BeginningDate));
    qbr_ContractYr2.value(strfmt('((%1.%2 >= %3 && %1.%2 <= %4))',qbds_contractYr.name(),fieldStr(uerContractYear, BeginningDate),fromDt,toDt));

    Its giving me runtime error

    Query extended range failure: Right parenthesis expected near pos 75.

    use this example,

    query = new query();
    qbds = query.addDataSource(tableNum(CustTrans));

    qr = qbds.addRange(fieldNum(CustTrans, TransDate));
    strFmt('(((%1.%2 >= %4) && (%1.%2 <= %5)) || ((%1.%3 >= %4) && (%1.%3 <= %5)))',
    fieldStr(CustTrans, TransDate),
    fieldStr(CustTrans, DocumentDate),

    When i debugged the code i got this query...it should give me 2 records in lookup.....but unfortunately, it is giving me blank look up...i am not understanding now what is the issue in the expression.

    SELECT FIRSTFAST * FROM uerContractYear WHERE uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable.uerContractYear = uerContractYear.ContractYear AND ((uerOutboundContractId = N'10126')) AND (((((uerContractYear_1.BeginningDate >= 1/1/2011) && (uerContractYear_1.BeginningDate <= 12/31/2011)) || ((uerContractYear_1.EndingDate >= 1/1/2011) && (uerContractYear_1.EndingDate <= 12/31/2011)))))

    Can you show us your query?
  • In reply to Kranthi:

    sysTableLookup = SysTableLookup::newParameters(tableNum(uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable), _formControl);
    sysTableLookup.addLookupField(fieldNum(uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable, Description));

    queryBuildDataSource = query.addDataSource(tableNum(uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable));

    queryBuildRange = queryBuildDataSource.addRange(fieldNum(uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable, uerOutboundContractId));

    queryBuildRange = queryBuildDataSource.addRange(fieldNum(uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable, uerAdvanceorGuarantee));

    qbds_contractYr = queryBuildDataSource.addDataSource(tablenum(uerContractYear));
    qbds_contractYr.addLink(fieldNum(uerOutboundGuaranteePaymentTable, uerContractYear), fieldNum(uerContractYear, ContractYear));

    qbr_ContractYr1 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, uerOutboundContractId));

    fromDt = mkdate(1, 1, str2int(INXL_ContractMarketingBudgetDetailTable.Year));
    toDt = mkdate(31, 12, str2int(INXL_ContractMarketingBudgetDetailTable.Year));

    qbr_ContractYr1 = qbds_contractYr.addRange(fieldNum(uerContractYear, BeginningDate));
    qbr_ContractYr1.value(strfmt('(((%1.%2 >= %4) && (%1.%2 <= %5)) || ((%1.%3 >= %4) && (%1.%3 <= %5)))',qbds_contractYr.name(),fieldStr(uerContractYear, BeginningDate),fieldStr(uerContractYear, EndingDate),fromDt,toDt));

  • In reply to Nikhilborse:

    I don't see any issue with the expression. Please try by investigating the query results (running it separately in a job)
  • In reply to Kranthi:

    Or maybe you're designing wrong query. Please simplify your query to contain just the problematic fields, so we don't have to deal with unrelated code (designing a new table just for this testing would be a good idea), tell us which records you're expecting to get and that parameters are you using.
    If you provide a project that anybody can import and run, you'll have a good chance that somebody will do it, and it will make sure that we all talk about the same thing.
