Sorry for the error, I forgot that IN works on sets, not individual fields. So, change to:

SELECT  Tb2._ID, Tb1.DET_ID, COUNT(Tb3._Name) NAME_COUNT
FROM  TABLE_1 Tb1
JOIN  TABLE_2 Tb2 ON Tb2.DET_ID = Tb1.DET_ID
JOIN  Table_3 Tb3 ON Tb3._ID    = Tb1._ID
  AND CAST(Tb3.Time AS DATE)    = CURRENT_DATE
  AND position(','||Tb2.NAME_ID||',' in ','||Tb3.NAME_IDS||',') > 0
GROUP BY Tb2._ID, Tb1.DET_ID

The reason for the syntax is as follows:

|| is the SQL way of string concatenation. You want to join those with a Tb2.NAME_ID in the list that's part of Tb3.NAME_IDS. Single quotes is the most common way to encapsulate strings in SQL (though some tools may differ and want you to use double qoutes).

Directly comparing the NAME_ID to NAME_IDS will often work, but will fail in cases like:
position('3' in ‘1,2,23,15’) will return 6

To avoid this, use ',' to add a comma to the front and back of 3.

position(',3,' in '1,2,23,15') returns 0, so the example above is fixed. However:

position(',15,' in '1,2,23,15') also returns 0, so there's still a minor problem.

Hence, add comma also before and after the NAME_IDS.

position(',15,' in ',1,2,23,15,') returns 9 and your problem is solved.

Hi Setysvar,

Thank you for helping out. But I am unable to run it on my “SQL manager” on executing query I am getting ‘Invalid Token’ error. Below is error that is shown

/Invalid token./

/Dynamic SQL Error./

/SQL error code = -104./

/Token unknown - line 5, column 61./

/','./

Also, could you tell me how does ‘,’||ColName ||’,’ syntax works. I am seeing it for the first time.

Thank you.

Den 16.09.2016 15:34, skrev 'Joje' j...@codework-solutions.com <mailto:j...@codework-solutions.com> [firebird-support]:

    I have a query in which I check whether an NAME _IDS of type
    varchar is in another table with NAME _ID column having data type
    as int.   Also, ID_1 have ID’s separated by comma’s example
    ‘1,2,3,4,5’.

    Below is the query which I am trying to execute

    *SELECT *Tb2. _ID,Tb1.DET_ID,COUNT(Tb3. _/Name) NAME/_COUNT

    *FROM*  TABLE_1 Tb1

    *JOIN*  TABLE_2 Tb2 *ON* Tb2.DET_ID= Tb1.DET_ID

    *JOIN* Table_3 Tb3 *ON* Tb3. _ID= Tb1. _ID

    *AND* CAST(Tb3.Time AS DATE)=CURRENT_DATE

    *AND*Tb3.NAME _IDS *IN* (*CAST*(Tb2.NAME_ID AS VARCHAR(250)))
    /*Here Tb3.NAME _IDS is varchar & Tb2.NAME _IDS is int so casted
    into varchar. This line gives wrong output */

    *  GROUP BY*Tb1.DET_ID, Tb1. NAME _ID, Tb1. _/ID, Tb3./_NAME

    _NOTE_: Tb3.NAME _IDS could have multiple ids in form ‘1,2,23,15’

    Problem I am facing is that when Tb3.NAME _IDS contains multiple
    IDs in it then result is not shown leading to wrong result. Is
    there any solution to solve this query. I tried using ‘STARTING
    WITH’, ‘CONTAINING’,’LIKE’  but no output.

SELECT  Tb2._ID, Tb1.DET_ID, COUNT(Tb3._Name) NAME_COUNT
/* It always confuses me when I see things like COUNT(Tb3._Name), myself I always use either COUNT(*) or COUNT(DISTINCT Tb3._Name), though I think your syntax is correct if you want to do the equivalent of COUNT(*), but skip nulls */
FROM  TABLE_1 Tb1
JOIN  TABLE_2 Tb2 ON Tb2.DET_ID = Tb1.DET_ID
JOIN  Table_3 Tb3 ON Tb3._ID    = Tb1._ID
  AND CAST(Tb3.Time AS DATE)    = CURRENT_DATE
  AND ','||Tb2.NAME_ID||',' in ','||Tb3.NAME_IDS||','
/* Tb2 and Tb3 the other way around, and add commas to make sure things matches exactly (i.e. match even if the first or last in NAME_IDS and not match 1 to 11 etc) */
GROUP BY Tb2._ID, Tb1.DET_ID
/*It makes no sense to group by anything but the non-grouped fields that you select, most likely you would get an error with your original GROUP BY*/

HTH,
Set
