Hi all
Im connecting to a MS SQL database 7.0 using JDBC. I have to make the same query multiple times with the only change being a new "where" clause. Im trying to do this with a query that looks like this:
queryString= "select sum(ITEM) as item from database where condition1; select sum(ITEM) as item2 from database where condition2;";
and Im getting the result of the query out in to integers like this:
itemInt = rs.getInt(item);
item2Int = rs.getInt(item2);
This works fine if I only have 1 "select" query in the queryString, but when I put in the second "select" query I get an SQLException that: Column "item2" not found.
Do I have to make seperate queryStrings for each timeperiod or can it be done in one??
If you need to see the code just ask.

You need to make separate query strings. There is a way to do multiples - you can write a stored procedure that will do the multiple SQL statements and use CallableStatement. But it looks like here you want 2 query strings.

You should try combination with union of selects.
