Dashes In DB Name

We have 2 3rd party databases on MSSQL 2000 that the respective applications created on the SQL Server. When the application created the DB's it used the NetBIOS computer name of the application server. Our NetBIOS names have dashes in them.

For example:
Server name: APP-SVR
Database Name Created: Application_APP-SVR

This is not realla a problem until I try to use the database name in query analyzer with a USE command, or if I want to prefix the object with the DB.OWNER and Query Analyzer sees the dash as an operator.

My question is this:
Why can I use the dropdown in query analyzer to choose the database but not issue a USE command to the DB? What does that dropdown do that a USE command is not doing??? What's the difference??

Is there anthing I can do in T-SQL to prevent this conversion? The strings are set as char(5) datatype in a T-SQL view.

How To Query For A Column Value That Contains Dashes

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

Variable Values Containing Dashes

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

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

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?

String Or Binary Data Would Be Truncated. (only For 1700 Character String?)

I am trying to insert a row into a table of Microsoft SQL Server 2000.

There are various columns.

[SNO] [numeric](3, 0) NOT NULL ,
[DATT] [char] (32) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL
[DATTA] [char] (3000) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL
[CODECS] [char] (32) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL

The [DATTA] column is causing a problem. Even if I am trying to put only 1700 character string into [DATTA], the java code throws the following exception:-

StaleConnecti A CONM7007I: Mapping the following
SQLException, with ErrorCode 0 and SQLState 08S01, to a
StaleConnectionException: java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][SQLServer 2000
Driver for JDBC]Connection reset

      at Source)

Why is it throwing an exception even though the sum-total of this row doesn't exceed 8000 characters?

Can anyone please tell me what's wrong?
