Taking on online class for SQL and am down to the last two classes and
cannot make the following work. This is a MS SQL Server query that I
have not been able to solve through the MySQL Documentation:
CREATE PROCEDURE CountPhoneNumbers AS DECLARE @count INTEGER
SELECT @count = COUNT (*) FROM Customer WHERE HomePhone IS NOT NULL
I have tried numerous variations of the following:
CREATE PROCEDURE CountPhoneNumbers () BEGIN DECLARE @count INT SELECT
@count = COUNT(*) FROM CUSTOMER WHERE HomePhone IS NOT NULL; END//
// was set to be the delimiter for the creation and have tried putting
various parts of the query into the parentheses. The error messages
always seem to occur around the @count variable. I am using MySQL
v.5.0.12 on Debian Etch.
I started using something better than the "standard" back when IBM advertised
OS/2 Warp on TV. As Linux matured I made the transition from OS/2 v4 to Linux.
You don't have to accept less than you deserve.
