MYSQL ETL including parameters

Is there a way to create parameters in SQL statements within the MySQL ETL data flow?

Here is an example:

set @lastDate = select * from `last_date_of_spent_data`;  -- this returns a single column and row

Select `Program Name`, @lastDate as LastClosedPeriod

    Hi @shannonmoranWF

    you can use variables within a MySQL data flow following standard MySQL 5.6 syntax

    Sure.

    just store the qeuery as table, and CROSS APPLY it to your table. Not sexy, but gets the job done.

    select * from `last_date_of_spent_data`
    

    or

    SELECT *
    FROM table
    , ( select max(date) as LastDate from `last_date_of_spent_data`) ld
