I have a variable (myTestVariable) which is a refresh variable. I want to use this as the filter on an interface. How do I do that ?

I have set the filter as my_column_name > #myTestVariable. I ran the interface and see this exception

com.sunopsis.sql.SnpsMissingParametersException: Missing parameter

    --You Drag&Drop the column where you want to put filter and you make it like that : column>#myTestVariable--

    I have not seen the last version of your query.
    Your variable is probably not set (declare) or is null.

    Best Regards

  • Hi-

    You can use your refresh variable into your interface filter by using #variablename.

    Step 1. Insert Filter in your source datastore of your interface(drag drop the column which you want to put filter)
    Step 2. Select the filter and enter command in the implementation box like this: sour_column in (#myTestVariable)

    Hope this will help you.

    In the package use that Refresh Variable before your Interface.

    I mean, in the package drag and drop the variable and then from the OK of that to your interface.

    Thanks for the responses. What I have to do to set the value ? (Even when I have used the variable in the package still I get the same exception)

    Here are steps what I did.

    1. Created a variable named vMyTestVariable, datatype to AlphaNumeric, Action to latest value, set the proper schema and the following as the Select query
    select TO_CHAR(NVL(MAX(LAST_UPDATE_DATE) , TO_DATE('01-01-1800','DD-MM-YYYY') ) , 'DD:MM:YYYY:HH:MI:SS') from demo_emp_tgt

    2. On the interface, I created the filter on column my_column1 with the following as the Implementation
    My_Other_Table.ACTION_DATE > TO_DATE ( #vMyTestVariable , 'DD:MM:YYYY:HH:MI:SS')

    At this stage I tried executing the interface and it had thrown the above exception

    Now, I tried running it in package (thinking that direct interface execution may not work).

    3. Created a package, dragged and dropped the variable into package and then dragged and dropped the interface.
    flow is Variable -----ok-----> Interface

    4. Now tried executing the package but still I see the same exception.

    Did I miss any step here ?

    Found from an old post that the variable must be enclosed in single quotes

    After setting it as My_Other_Table.ACTION_DATE > TO_DATE ( '#vMyTestVariable' , 'DD:MM:YYYY:HH:MI:SS') on the interface filter, it worked fine.

    In the filter just give My_Other_Table.ACTION_DATE='#vMyTestVariable'( in single quotes) not My_Other_Table.ACTION_DATE > TO_DATE ( #vMyTestVariable , 'DD:MM:YYYY:HH:MI:SS')
