variable in formatted search

i have the following query that runs well in SQL but returns not results in formatted search.

why ?

Declare @NameList NVarChar(MAX) = ''

select @NameList =

case when @NameList = ''

then coalesce(concat( T3.U_ProductName ,'-',T3.U_Value),'')

else @NameList + coalesce(concat(' ;',T3.U_ProductName,'-',T3.U_Value),'')


from ordr T0

inner join rdr1 T1

on T0.DocEntry = T1.DocEntry

inner join [dbo].[@COR_PRODUCTP] T2

on T1.U_ProductPro = T2.DocEntry

inner join [dbo].[@COR_PRODUCTv] T3

on t2.DocEntry = T3.DocEntry

where T0.DocNum = 1000001


and t1.U_ProductPro=1


print @NameList ;

    Hi Dov,

    At the end your query you need use SELECT not PRINT command.

    I don't have your user tables, then I changed your query to test on my SAP and worked fine.

    DECLARE @NameList NVARCHAR(MAX) = ''
    	@NameList = CASE WHEN @NameList = '' THEN 
    						COALESCE(CONCAT(T1.ItemCode ,'-',T1.Dscription),'')
    						@NameList + COALESCE(CONCAT(' ;',T1.ItemCode ,'-',T1.Dscription),'')
    	ORDR T0
    	INNER JOIN RDR1 T1 ON T0.DocEntry = T1.DocEntry
    	--INNER JOIN [dbo].[@COR_PRODUCTP] T2 ON T1.U_ProductPro = T2.DocEntry
    	--INNER JOIN [dbo].[@COR_PRODUCTv] T3 ON t2.DocEntry = T3.DocEntry
    	T0.DocNum = $[$8.0.NUMBER]
    	AND T1.ItemCode = $[$38.1.0]
    SELECT @NameList

    And remember, to run this query ok, your order must be saved.

    Hope it helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Diego Lother

    Formatted searches use the B1 client's built in SQL parser, to allow for the B1 specific formatted search variables like $[$38.U_ProductPro.0]. This parser is otherwise limited, and does not directly understand the more complicated syntax that you might use in MS SQL Management Studio. Also I don't think you can use print for the return value of the formatted search. I am pretty sure it needs to be a normal query result.

    So you will need to build your query completely differently.
