Subject Re: IN clause capable of adding a subquery?
Date Mon, 16 Dec 2002 15:51:31 GMT
Sounds useful.  There are ways to add such a complex criteria, but not
very elegant and they pretty much boil down to constructing the string
by hand.  A patch would be welcome, though usage of such a construct
would limit the code to use in db's that support subqueries.  BTW, what
is the limit in oracle for the number of items in an IN list?
