What is wrong here?

s_id VARCHAR2(32);
s_id =(select  store_id from store where key_store_seqid = '&&storeNumber');


select txorder_id, from txorder where  order_number = '&&orderNumber' and store_id  = '$s_id';


RE: Variables

Not sure if this applies, but i had trouble doing an SQLvar1 = "INSERT INTO tablename1 (field1) VALUES ("'& aspformvar1 &'")"

This shows the syntax i was looking for.
it's the asp var name from a submitted form, inside an & on each side, inside single quotes, inside double quotes.

does this make sense?  i'm really glad i got it working!!  a friend of mine knew the deal and told me the syntax.  thank you jason!

RE: Variables

One thing that I noticed is that you are declaring s_id as a varchar2 with a length of only 32.  You are then trying to build s_id as something a lot bigger than 32 characters.

RE: Variables

hi dcparham
the syntax is wrong, you wrote>>
"select txorder_id, from txorder where "

remove comma(,) after "txorder_id," and run it.
