Hi everyone,

As source on a Sql25k table I've got this (often):


And, as a result I'd need this (plain file):

Xxxxx Zzzzzz Yyyyy

Ok guys, with VbScript inside a DTS it's very easy, building a loop and then playing with Ucase, Left functions stuff and so on...

How could I do this using a DTSX package?? Any specialized task?

Thanks indeed for your help,

Group Everything With The Same First Two Letters

Aug 17, 2007

I'm working on a stored procedure that works fine. I just want to make it possible for the user to be able to have a drop down list in reporting services to display the "question codes" grouped by whatever the first two digits are. for example.


instead of listing everything, i want the viewers to see this
or an alias for each of these like this:

Vet Tasks
Vet National
Survey Tasks
Survey National

any ideas, here's my current code, which is pullin up anything with the added substring part

Code Snippet
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[Testing_Questions]
(@Region_Key int=null,@QuestionCode char(5))

SELECT dbo.Qry_Questions.Territory,
dbo.Qry_Questions.[Question Code],
dbo.Qry_Questions.[Response Type],
FROM dbo.Qry_Questions
INNER JOIN dbo.Qry_Sales_Group
ON dbo.Qry_Questions.sales_person_code COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS = dbo.Qry_Sales_Group.SalesPerson_Purchaser_Code
AND SUBSTRING(dbo.Qry_Questions.[Question Code],0,3)=@QuestionCode

WHERE Includes All Letters

Apr 18, 2006


I would like to perform a procedure
which takes a string of numbers and searches for strings in a table which include all the
given numbers in any particular order. problem is i can only return strings
which include 'any' of the letters in the search string and not

this is how i perform it so far:



SELECT Phone AS [Telephone

FROM tbl_Person AS p

WHERE (p.Phone LIKE '%[' +
@IncludeNumbers + ']%')


(ive removed some unecessary bits but
this shows the basics)

As you can see currently it will return any phone numbers which contain any numbers given in the includeNumbers string, I would only like it to return phone numbers which contain all the numbers given in the includeNumbers string. is there any way to make it search for strings
which include 'all' numbers given?

Hi. I'm looking for tutorials on how to use SSRS 2005 to generate letters in Word or PDF format from a database. We need to send letters with our company logo and some boilerplate text to a set of companies based on a SQL Server query. So the letter will look something like this, with the red areas repeating from the dataset,

[logo goes here]

123 Any St.

[today's date]

Dear [name from database],

Some boilerplate text goes here. Your Account [account number from database] is past due.

Searching For Strings That Contain Characters Other Than Letters?

Aug 4, 2004


I have a table in an Access db that stores information about speech files. One of the fields in this table is called "Text" and it contains the phrase spoken in that particular speechfile.

These phrases often have characters such as the "#" sign at the end to indicate what tone of voice is used.

I am trying to create a Search where users can enter the phrase they are looking for, and will be returned the file (or combination of files) that contain this phrase.

My problem is, when I try to search for a string of text that includes the "#" I get 0 results everytime.

An example of what I am doing is this:

SELECT Speechfiles.Name FROM Speechfiles
WHERE Speechfiles.Text LIKE 'aero#'

It works fine for 'aero' or '*aero*' but whenever I try to add a character that is not a letter, it won't work.

If anyone has any ideas, I would REALLY appreciate it!!! I am completely at a loss.

Thanks so much....

SELECT Only The Newest, But Based On Revised Letters

Feb 11, 2004

Ok here's a big one.

First I'm a big NEWBIE, so it'd be great if you can provide a little explanation as to how this should be done...

Here's what I want to do, but have no idea how to approach it.

I have a table with Quotes (table Quote) in them (for a Sale's Team). Each has a quote number (qtQN) and this number is sequencial but sometimes revised where a letter is added at the end. Like so:

111q0002B -----02/04/04
etc... ------------- etc...

The first 3 digit are company codes and pretty unimportant to this problem. As you can see, 111q0002 has three versions. A, B, and no letter. The most up to date is B. So in this list I want to list only the most up to date quotes. So the resulting list would be:


Get it? Good, cuz I have no idea how to query that... any help at all is appreciated!

I'm using MS SQL Server 2k and scripting with ASP 3.0

SQL Server 2012 :: Parse A String Every 6 Letters

Jan 28, 2015

How to parse a string to equal length substrings in SQL

I am getting a long concatenated string from a query (CTVALUE1) and have to use the string in where clause by parsing every 6 characters..

[ID] [char](10) NULL,
[name] [char](10) NULL,
[CTVALUE1] [char](80) NULL

select * from ptemp

After parsing I have to use these values in a where clause like this


Now ,the values can change I mean the string may give 5 values(6 character) today and 10 tomorrow.. So the parsing should be dynamic.

SQL 2012 :: Swapping Drive Letters In Cluster

Jul 3, 2015

As part of a migration of data to a new SAN I have hit a bit of a snag in the migration. In summary what will happen is user database data files will be moved from one LUN (say drive F:) to a new LUN (say drive G:). Once all the data is migrated, plan is to remove dependency of that drive from SQL server and remove the drive and delete the LUN. So far, so good.

However one of the LUNs (drive D:) destined to be deleted also hosts the instance default directories, i.e. everything under MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER (Data, Backups, FTData, JOBS, etc). BOL has articles on how to migrate system databases, including tempdb. But there is no guidance that I could find on how to relocate other folders. There are forums where users have listed registry changes, etc that can achieve this but these are steps I am unwilling to take on a production server.

So my plan is:
1) Add new drive to cluster (drive E:), sufficiently large enough to host instance default folders
2) Shutdown SQL server
3) Copy all default folders to new drive
4) Swap drive letters so that new drive is now D:
5) Start SQL server and if everything works, delete the original drive (which is now drive E:).

Extract Numbers Or Letters From Mixed String

Mar 16, 2004

Yeah, it's pretty simple. Maybe it'll help someone out.

-- USAGE: fn_extract_chars(string_to_search, 'letters' -or- 'numbers')
CREATE FUNCTION fn_extract_chars (@x varchar(128), @y char(7))
RETURNS varchar(128)
DECLARE @chars varchar(128)
DECLARE @pos int
DECLARE @action varchar(32)
SET @pos = 0
SET @chars = ''

IF @y = 'numbers' SET @action = '[0-9]'
ELSE IF @y = 'letters' SET @action = '[a-zA-Z]'

WHILE @pos < (DATALENGTH(@x) + 1)
IF PATINDEX(@action,SUBSTRING(@x, @pos, 1)) > 0
SET @chars = @chars + (SELECT SUBSTRING(@x, @pos, 1))
SET @pos = @pos + 1

Adding New Volume And Swapping Drive Letters....

Apr 11, 2007

Hello - I have a SQL 2000 server which has a D: drive that contains all of my databases (system and user). I am running out of space on this volume and need to migrate the contents of this volume to a larger one. My initial plan was to introduce a new volume to the server (say a K: drive). Backup all databases (of course), and then stop all SQL services. Copy all data from D: to K:. Once data is copied, swap drive letter names (D: to I: and then K: to D. Then restart SQL services. SQL should not know any better since everything was on the D: drive when it went down, and everythiing is still on the D: drive when it came back up, correct?

The other option mentioned is to detatch the databases, copy the data and then reattach them in their new locations. I understand this method, but it seems more involved (and riskier) than just renaming the drives. Does anyone have an opinion regarding these two migration methods? Thanks for your help.
