Hi friends,

I have a query in the following way

select * from Customer
where CustmerNumber=@CustomerNumber
and Date_Customer=@date_Customer

But the problem i have is to return all records when the parameters are null and return records even if one parameter is passed like only customerNumber is defined but not Date_customer and vice versa...

How can i achiove this...Thank you

The term for that sort of query is a catch-all query. There are several ways to write them. Here is one:
select * from Customer
where 
	(CustmerNumber=@CustomerNumber or @CustomerNumber IS NULL)
	and (Date_Customer=@date_Customer or @date_Customer IS NULL)
Here is a link that gives more detail on these types of queries:
