FB-3,09 Recursive CTE

Recommended Posts

I wish everyone a healthy day

I'm testing to use Recursive CTE instead of my Recursive S.Proc.

 

WITH RECURSIVE CTE AS (SELECT B.ITEMCODE, B.SUBITEMCODE, IT.ITEMTYPE, B.QTY,
V.CUSTNO, V.PRICE, IT.STOCK
FROM BOM B 
JOIN ITEMS IT ON IT.ITEMCODE=B.SUBITEMCODE
JOIN VENDOR V ON V.ITEMCODE=B.SUBITEMCODE )

SELECT ITEMCODE, SUBITEMCODE, ITEMTYPE, QTY,  CUSTNO, PRICE, STOCK
FROM CTE
WHERE ITEMCODE='ABC'

 

Above Query works but it doesnt explode the BOM, just shows BOM table's datas.

Thank You

Your CTE is in fact not recursive as it doesn't reference itself or use UNION ALL.

Generalized syntax for a recursive CTE looks like this:

WITH RECURSIVE <cte_alias> AS (
SELECT <parent data> -- root nodes data
UNION ALL
SELECT <child data> -- childrens data
JOIN <cte_alias> ON <parent_link>
) -- DO // for the Delphians
SELECT * FROM <cte_alias>

Thank you so much Ondrej,

to use UNION ALL is a must in a CTE ?

without using UNION ALL cant we use CTE ?
