Our database is running in full recovery mode and we backup the logfile every hour and the database file every night. I notice thetimestamp of database file *.mdf remains unchanged a few days. Forexample one database has its timestamp at Apr 15 while it is Apr 20already.I am wondering if this is acceptable. How do I force the system toflush the data and dirty blocks to the disk more frequently? What isthe downside to this?Thanks for any idea.
I am pulling files from the FTP site using the FTP task. I want to also capture the date and timestamp of each of these files so that I can insert the values into a database and track when are these files get created normally on the FTP server.
I have 2 years worth of data that are stored in individual .dbf files for each day. Is there a way to 1 quickly import all of these tables into one and 2. move the timestamp from the file name to a date column?
I have a package that processes a flat file, which is generated by a separate system each weekday around 3:30AM. I would like my package to store the timestamp of the input file and compare it to the timestamp of the next day's file. If they are the same, then the package can exit without reprocessing a particular file again.
So, my first question is whether a package variable can be updated so that its value will persist from one run to the next?
Second, what is the syntax to retrieve the file's timestamp, either directly from the file connection manager or within a script task?
ok...i give up..... can this be done? (sql server 2000) all i want to do is have my stored procedure output some data to a file and i want the filename to include a time stamp. here's my current working file output code: EXEC master..xp_cmdshell 'bcp "select * from CEData..employee" queryout "c:employees.txt" -c -Usa -P' i'd like it to be something like this: EXEC master..xp_cmdshell 'bcp "select * from CEData..employee" queryout "c:employees" + datetime + ".txt" -c -Usa -P' but nothing seems to work.
I am populating oracle source in Sql Server Destination. after few rows it fails it displays this error:
[OLE DB Destination ] Error: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005. An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "Invalid date format".
I used this script component using the following code in between the adapters, However after 9,500 rows it failed again giving the same above error:
To convert Oracle timestamp to Sql Server timestamp
If Row.CALCULATEDETADATECUST_IsNull = False Then
If IsDate(DateSerial(Row.CALCULATEDETADATECUST.Year, Row.CALCULATEDETADATECUST.Month, Row.CALCULATEDETADATECUST.Day)) Then
dt = Row.CALCULATEDETADATECUST
Row.CALCULATEDETADATECUSTD = dt
I don't know if my code is right . Please inform, how i can achieve this.

The issue I have is this. I have been asked to delete all information from a table that was inserted before May 12 this year. The issue is that when the DB was created, whoever designedd it neglected to add a timestamp column for the user data table (the one I need to purge). Does SQL, by default, happen to store insert times? Would it be something that might hide ina log file somewhere?
I have a timestamp in a date field of a table I have but when run it does not enter the date automatically and all I get is system.byte display where the dtae and time should be, how can i get it so this field places the date in automatically.???

Is there any chance to get the content of a timestamp field?I am trying to get the content via Visual Objects and I am receiving onlynothing.Not NIL but "".Is it possible to get any useful information out of this field in anylanguage?(btw I know that the MS-Timestamp is not a timeformat)THXJens

I have inherited a table with a timestamp column. I would like to call a stored procedure (within another sp) based on the timestamp reflecting the current day. Does anyone have any suggestions on reading the timestamp data and doing a comparison to todays date ? Do I have to convert the timestamp data first ?
I am new to SQl Server 6.5. We have a new application and just got the application code. Howver, I notice that each table has a edit_timestamp with the datatype of timestamp. During our testing, I will have to use bp to take data in and out of the tables,
My questions are:
1) Will the timestamp datatype be difficult to use with bcp?
2) Would I be better off asking the vendor to change the data type to datatime rather than timestamp?
I believe that all created tables have got by default a timestamp field. I tried to find out how to read this field with a Transact-SQL statement. And so I don't know the syntax, is anyone can help me ?
