Getting column name which have specific value for a specific row


(Govind Prajapati) #1

Following code is working fine. But I want to define array[‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’, ‘d’, ‘e’] as a variable.

rows, err :=  db.Query("select colname from (SELECT date, unnest(array['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e']) AS colname, unnest(array[a, b, c, d, e]) AS thing from test1 where date='123') as tester where thing=1;")

So I try following code using github.com/lib/pq .

 arr1 := []string{"a", "b", "c", "d", "e"}      
rows, err :=  db.Query("select colname from (SELECT date, unnest($1) AS colname, unnest($1) AS thing from test1 where date='123') as tester where thing=1;", pq.Array(arr1))

getting error like “pq: function unnest(unknown) is not unique”
Table structure and sample data–

test=# \d+ test1
                                Table "public.test1"
 Column |         Type          | Modifiers | Storage  | Stats target | Description 
--------+-----------------------+-----------+----------+--------------+-------------
 a      | character varying(10) |           | extended |              | 
 b      | character varying(10) |           | extended |              | 
 c      | character varying(10) |           | extended |              |

 e      | character varying(10) |           | extended |              | 
 date   | character varying(10) |           | extended |              | 

test=# select * from test1 ;
