I am looking for a way to specify multiple integer options in one macro parameter.
e.g. on the following table I need to select multiple regions and multiple store_no's
Index is region,store_no
Create macro read_stores as (:reg varchar(30) )
Works for the region code, which is character - exec read_stores('A B C'); How can I achieve the same result on the store_no field? Store numbers range from 1 to 30.
The following works, but there must be a better/more efficient solution:
To allow for the 'all regions' options, I have set the macro as follows:
Create macro read_stores as (:reg varchar(30), rlim byteint )
Where rlim is 0, the region must exist in the list Where rlim is -1, any region code will match, so all regions are selected. Is there another way of achieving the same result without having a separate macro for each case?
The final macro will run against large tables, with a number of these multi-selection parameters.
Any examples, advice or comments are welcome.
