Dynamic Parameter m Error with text value including -

Hello!

 

My Dynamic Parameter m is giving an error when the text value from a list of plain parameter has a hyphen (-) in it.

 

Like 312-34

 

Not sure why, I defined as text.

 

I get this error:

 

DataSource.Error: Microsoft SQL: Statement(s) could not be prepared.
Incorrect syntax near '-'.
Details:
DataSourceKind=SQL
DataSourcePath=mtlsql01;Reco_DEF
Message=Statement(s) could not be prepared.
Incorrect syntax near '-'.
ErrorCode=-2146232060
Number=8180
Class=16

 

Can anyone help?

 

I spent the whole day trying to figure it out.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for your help! (Not sure if I replied at the right spot)

 

This is the Query Code:

 

= Sql.Database("MTLSQL01", "Reco_DEF", [Query="SELECT *#(lf)FROM OPENQUERY ([MTLSQL01],#(lf)'EXEC Reco_DEF.dbo.DEF_Customer_Detail_NoDuplication_pbi " & ParamCustomer & ",
" & ParamCustomerLocation & " , " & Division & " ') " ])

 

This is the parameter code:

"2705-10" meta [IsParameterQuery=true, ExpressionIdentifier=CustomerLocation, Type="Text", IsParameterQueryRequired=true]

 

If I put the parameter in quotes in current value:  "2705-10" It works.

"""2705-10""" meta [IsParameterQuery=true, ExpressionIdentifier=CustomerLocation, Type="Text", IsParameterQueryRequired=true]

 

 

 

Thaks in advance.

I fixed the issue.

After running profiler, I copied and pasted statement that was sent and ran it in sql.

It failed.

I added brackets to my parameter in sql and it worked.

I then added brackets in m:

[" & ParamCustomerLocation & "]

and it worked!

Maybe I need to do this because I am using OPENQUERY?

 

In any case thanks for your help watkinnc.

So it looks like the parameter is named CustomerLocation; any reason why you use ParamCustomerLocation instead of just CustomerLocation?


I’m usually answering from my phone, which means the results are visualized only in my mind. You’ll need to use my answer to know that it works—but it will work!!

Hi watkinnc,

 

THe parameter is ParamCustomerLocation and it takes the data from a list query called CustomerLocation.

Can we see some of your code, plus the parameter code?
