Why doesn't this %Library.ResultSet ClassName/QueryName doesn't work?

Hi Guys,

So I've been following this guide in using a %Library.ResultSet with a  ClassName / QueryName as described in the first example.

The code I've got so far doesn't work and is as follows:

set rs=##class(%ResultSet).%New()
set rs.ClassName="GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.vwNewGPs"
set rs.QueryName="GetRows"
set sc=rs.Execute("a")  If $$$ISERR(sc) Do DisplayError^%apiOBJ(sc) Quit
while rs.%Next() { do rs.%Print() }		

And the referenced class is

Class GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.vwNewGPs [ ClassType = view, CompileAfter = (GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.Endpoints, GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.PARIS.AUDUAGUMECCPRAC), DdlAllowed,  Not ProcedureBlock, SqlTableName = vwNewGPs, ViewQuery = { 

	// Bunch of SQLCode
 	} ]

Query GetRows() As %SQLQuery
	select *
	from GMECC_DocmanConnect_Tables.vwNewGPs


When code when run, produces the follow error:

ERROR #5002: ObjectScript error: <PARAMETER>zGetRowsExecute^GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.vwNewGPs.1

What am I doing wrong, can anyone offer any insight?

set sc=rs.Execute("a")

You pass a paramter,
but there is no need for a parameter visible.  NO ? in query


set sc=rs.Execute()

You can also call it like this:

set rs = ##class(GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.vwNewGPs).GetRowsFunc()
while rs.%Next() { do rs.%Print() }

More info about implicit methods.

Set QueryClass = "GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.vwNewGPs"
Set QueryName = "GetRows"
Set tResult = ##class(%Library.ResultSet).%New(QueryClass_":"_QueryName)
Set tResult.RuntimeMode = 1
Set:Params="" status = tResult.Execute()
Set:Params'="" status = tResult.Execute(Params)

Also look at the %SQL way of running queries which has some advantages, there are a few ways of doing it, one of which is:

s stmnt=##class(%SQL.Statement).%New()

s sc=stmnt.%PrepareClassQuery("GMECC.DocmanConnect.Tables.vwNewGPs","GetRows")

s rs=stmnt.%Execute()

w rs.%SQLCODE,!

while rs.%Next() {

// s var=rs.%Get("ColumnName")  - for known column names

s var1=rs.%GetData(columnNumber)

w var,!

w var1


%Library.ResultSet remains in the product for backward compatibility reasons but there are better ways to execute class queries. Any class query can be projected as a table valued function (TVF). TVF's can be executed if the class query also declares SQLPROC. A TVF can be included in the FROM item list, it can be joined with other FROM items, it can be ordered, restricted and a subset of available columns made available. Here is a simple example from the Sample.Person class:

select id,name,dob from sample.SP_Sample_By_Name('Ad') order by dob desc

I populated Sample.Person with some generated data and ran the above statement:

And you can also execute this using a dynamic statement:

USER>set result = $system.SQL.Execute("select id,name,dob from sample.SP_Sample_By_Name('Ad') order by dob desc")

USER>write result.%Next()
USER>write result.Name
