A question about sql syntax

09/14/2020 158 views

Hello, we have a user that is using Smart Labels for software deployment. The label will show any version lower than the one they're looking to deploy.

When a particular software reached version 10, they were no longer able to get a correct result because v. 68.8.0 doesn't appear as less than 68.10.0 because it appears to be comparing the 8 to the 1, rather than 10.

I'm afraid my sql knowledge is limited.

Does anyone perhaps know a way to get it to compare the 8 to 10 instead?

This is the example he sent to me: 

SELECT

  MACHINE.NAME AS SYSTEM_NAME,

  SYSTEM_DESCRIPTION,

  MACHINE.IP,

  MACHINE.MAC,

  MACHINE.ID as TOPIC_ID

FROM MACHINE  WHERE ( exists  (select 1 from SOFTWARE, MACHINE_SOFTWARE_JT where MACHINE_SOFTWARE_JT.MACHINE_ID = MACHINE.ID AND SOFTWARE.ID = MACHINE_SOFTWARE_JT.SOFTWARE_ID

and SOFTWARE.PUBLISHER = 'Mozilla'

and SOFTWARE.DISPLAY_NAME like 'Mozilla Thunderbird%'

and SOFTWARE.DISPLAY_VERSION < '68.8.0'

))


Thanks so much.

Not that I am a SQL pro or anything, but we have that problem in PowerShell as well, because its trying to compare an decimal, and decimal only have a single point - not many like a version. In PowerShell we can 'cast' the type to version, in effect PowerShell can do the maths for us.

In SQL, I had a quick google and looks like you need to program it, eek.
