Hi Guys,

I have the following code but for some reason Power BI doesn't seem to accept declare. Does anyone know a way around this? The error message I get in Power BI is:

Query1 Microsoft SQL: Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'DECLARE'

Many thanks

DECLARE @sd DATETIME, @ed DATETIME;

-- set the start date to the first day of this month
SET @sd = DATEADD(MONTH, DATEDIFF(MONTH, 0, GETDATE()), 0);

-- if it's the first, we want last month instead
IF DATEPART(DAY, GETDATE()) = 1
BEGIN
SET @sd = DATEADD(MONTH, -1, @sd);
END
ELSE

-- set end dates
IF DATEPART(DAY, GETDATE()) = 1
SET @ed = DATEADD(MONTH, 1, @sd)
ELSE
SET @ed = DATEADD(dd, DATEDIFF(dd,0,GETDATE()), 0)


SELECT logfile.Dealer,Dealers.Name
,COUNT(*) AS Booked
, SUM(CASE RepairCodes.[Service] WHEN 'Y' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS SER
, SUM(CASE ServCode WHEN 'MST' THEN 1 WHEN 'S&M' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS MST
, SUM(CASE ServCode WHEN 'MOT' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS MOT
, SUM(CASE ServCode WHEN 'WAR' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS WAR
, SUM(CASE PayType WHEN 'INTERNAL' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS [INT]
,COUNT(DISTINCT RegNo) AS Vehs

,COUNT(*)
-SUM(CASE RepairCodes.[Service] WHEN 'Y' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
-SUM(CASE ServCode WHEN 'MST' THEN 1 WHEN 'S&M' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
-SUM(CASE ServCode WHEN 'MOT' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
-SUM(CASE ServCode WHEN 'WAR' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Other

, SUM(TotalValue) AS [Value]

FROM LogFile
LEFT OUTER JOIN RepairCodes
ON RepairCode = ServCode
AND LogFile.Dealer = RepairCodes.Dealer

JOIN Dealers ON Dealers.Dealer=LogFile.Dealer

AND dbo.LogFile.Created >= @sd
AND dbo.LogFile.Created < @ed
AND DBO.LogFile.Tran1 in ( 'IBB','W3B')
GROUP BY LogFile.Dealer, Dealers.Name
order by Dealers.Name

I tried to reproduce your problem by using DECLARE inside the query window in PowerBI (after you specify the database etc), and mine worked. Granted, my SQL was a lot simpler... so it's not the DECLARE that's causing the problem. I executed this inside that query window in PowerBi:

DECLARE @NumRecords INT
SET @NumRecords = 1+ABS(CHECKSUM(NEWID())%10);

SELECT TOP (@NumRecords) *
FROM dbo.SymptomData;

and mine worked, so there's something else going on in there. What happens if you execute your T-SQL inside SSMS? It works there, right?.

Quick question, have you tried separating the declare into two lines?
Cool


DECLARE @sd DATETIME;
DECLARE @ed DATETIME;
