Aug 26, 2014

Looking at a trace table and trying to remove all the "erroneous" bits in a string e.g the declares etc so I can purely get to proc names.

An example string

declare @p2 varchar(10) set @p2=NULL exec sp_proc @Code='TF',@TypeCode=@p2 output select @p2

I've tried

select top 5000 textdata,substring(textdata,charindex('exec',textdata)+5,charindex('@',textdata)-1)
from trace_table
where TextData like '%sp_%'
and TextData like '%declare%'

And it fails dismally...

SQL Server 2008 :: Normalizing Data Prior To Migration (Update String To Remove Special Characters)

Aug 21, 2015

I'm presented with a problem where I have a database table which must be migrated via a "custom tool", moving the data into a new table which has special character requirements that didn't exist in the source database. My data resides in an SQL Server 2008R2 instance.

I envision a one-time query which will loop through selected records and replace the offending characters with --, however I'm having trouble understanding how this works.

There are roughly 2500 records which meet the criteria of "contains bad characters", frequently containing multiple separate bad chars, and the table contains roughly 100000 rows.

Special Characters are defined as #%&*:<>?/{}|~ and ..

While the field is called "Filename" it isn't always so, it is a parent/child table where foldernames are also stored.

Example data:
Tablename = Items
ItemID Filename ListID
1 Badfile<2015>.docx 15
2 Goodfile.docx 15
3 MoreBad#.docx 15
4 Dog&Cat#17.pdf 15
5 John's "Special" Folder 16

The examples I'm finding are all oriented around SELECT statements, to change the output of what I see returned, however I'd rather just fix the entire column using an UPDATE. Initial testing using REPLACE fails because I don't always have a single character as the bad thing in a string.

In a better solution, I found an example using a User Defined Function to modify the output of a select, but I cannot use that UDF in an UPDATE.

My alternative is to learn enough C# to modify the "migration tool" to do this in-transit, but I know even less about C# than I do of SQL.

I gather I want to use @@ROWCOUNT to loop through the rows but I really can't put it all together in a cohesive way.

How To Query For A Column Value That Contains Dashes

Oct 12, 2007

Hi,I have a large table with a 'datetime' column that has date and timevalues in it. The data is in this format:2007-10-02 09:54:00.000The table is called 'profile' and the column 'msgdate'I want to return only rows that match a specific date. So far I havethe following query working:select * from profile where msgdate like '%2007%'This returns all rows that start with '2007'. However I cannot seem toge the syntax that will allow me to return a specific date, e.g.2007-10-02I have researched this, trying all sorts of queries with escapecharacters/sequences because of the dash character, but I cannot getit to return anything. Most of my queries have ran without error, itsjust that no data is returned.James

How Can I Bulk Insert Dashes?

Aug 8, 2007

when i do a bulk insert with dashes (i.e. one - two), i get the character u with two dots above it ( √ú ) in place of all the dashes? can't seem to figure out why. the field terminator is a comma ( , ).

i'm inserting just text with dashes into char(75) field.

can someone explain and provide a solution? i would greatly appreciate it!

my script is quite simple, maybe i'm missing something.

Code Snippet

Variable Values Containing Dashes

Nov 8, 2006

Ok. Here is a weird problem.

I have a package which contains a variable with the value of a UNC sharename. The hostname in the share contains dashes.

I am trying to create a SQL Agent entry to execute said package. Because the package is now in production I want to pass in a new value for the sharename variable. I use the SQL @@SERVERNAME variable to build the package command. (Notice the BlotterUploadFolder variable at the end.)

SELECT @command = N'/FILE "\' + @@SERVERNAME + 'PackagesMiddleOfficeReconcilliationImportManualBlotter_AccountTransfers.dtsx" /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING EW /CONNECTION MiddleOfficeDb;"Data Source=' + @@SERVERNAME + ';Initial Catalog=MiddleOffice;Provider=SQLNCLI.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Auto Translate=False;" /SET package.variables[BlotterUploadFolder].Value;\' + @@SERVERNAME + 'ManualBlottersUploads'

If I print the @command variable right after setting it, I get what I expect.

/FILE "\PRD-NY-DB-01PackagesMiddleOfficeReconcilliationImportManualBlotter_AccountTransfers.dtsx" /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING EW /CONNECTION MiddleOfficeDb;"Data Source=PRD-NY-DB-01;Initial Catalog=MiddleOffice;Provider=SQLNCLI.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Auto Translate=False;" /SET package.variables[BlotterUploadFolder].Value;\PRD-NY-DB-01ManualBlottersUploads

If I cut-paste this into cmd window and execute it with DTExec.exe the package works fine. But when I run the schedule task it causes an error. When I go into the Job Properties dialog to look at the step, I see the value (in the "Set values" table) set to \PRD instead of \PRD-NY-DB-01.

If I modify the SELECT command above to put double-quotes around the value, the value is correct in the Job Properties dialog but causes an error when I exec it with DTExec.

/FILE "\PRD-NY-DB-01PackagesMiddleOfficeReconcilliationImportManualBlotter_AccountTransfers.dtsx" /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING EW /CONNECTION MiddleOfficeDb;"Data Source=PRD-NY-DB-01;Initial Catalog=MiddleOffice;Provider=SQLNCLI.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Auto Translate=False;" /SET package.variables[BlotterUploadFolder].Value;"\PRD-NY-DB-01ManualBlottersUploads"

causes the error

Option "-NY" is not valid.

Hopefully somebody has an idea of what is going on.

Inserting To Table With Dashes In Fieldnames

Jul 23, 2005

Hello,I have had a request, one of our tables is used as a report and I have beenasked that all fieldnames for months have dashes in them,like Jan-05 instead of Jan05 and so on...Now what we have is a CURSOR which loops through all values in another tablegenerating these fieldnames, like 'Jan-05', Feb-05' etc..Then the table definition is modified so these months display as fieldnames.That is fine,Except later it calls another stored procedure which inserts values fromanother table into this one.INSERT INTO TableNameSELECT *FROM TablenameObviously this is failing because the newly amended table now has dashes inthe fieldnames now.Now as the fieldnames are created dynamically I cannot simply do INSERTTablename ([Jan-05], [feb-5]) etc, as one would normally do,How could I do this bearing in mind its not always going to be 12 months weuse,Basically I am asking how can I modify this INSERT statement so it takesinto account the fieldnames with dashes in themBearing in mind I don't know what the fieldnames are called as they arecreated dynamically by a CURSOR in a different routine.And its not always 12 months.have you any ideas?and the dashes are requiredJayne

Scheduling A Package With Variables Containing Spaces Or Dashes Fails

Jun 29, 2007

Using the "set values" tab, I am trying to set the values of package variables to strings that contain spaces and/or dashes. If I run the package using the integrations services server, it runs perfectly. If I schedule the package on SQL Server agent, I get the following error.

"Executed as user: GBPSQLServer. Microsoft (R) SQL Server Execute Package Utility Version 9.00.3042.00 for 64-bit Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-2005. All rights reserved. Option "-restofstring" is not valid. The command line parameters are invalid. The step failed."

Looking at the command line generated by the SQL Agent interface, the value is quoted using double quotes like this:

/SQL "PackageName" /SERVER SQL1 /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /SET "Package.Variables[LogFolder].Value";"\remoteservernameinetpub he-restofstring
estofstring" /REPORTING E

It seems that the command line parser is not recognising the quotes, or maybe the slashes are throwing it off, or sql server agent is doing something funny to the command line before it executes it.

Anybody got any ideas?
