Hi. I want to be able to calculate weekly averages of our report data. Here is a sample from our EmplyeeTrends table:
EmployeeID ReportDate TotalCases
2 1/1/2007 77
2 1/2/2007 63
3 1/1/2007 56All the report data is produced daily. However, my boss wants to be able to see weekly/monthly averages for each employee. Is this possible? Thanks so much for your help!
Yesterday we ran into a very surprising problem: a colleague had developed a view which calculated a numbero of domain functions on an integer field (sum, count, standard deviation, average).
We were amazed to find that the view always returned an integer value for the average (not for the std dev, though). This was obviously wrong. We even tried changing the function to Sum(fld)/Count(fld) where "fld" was the fieldname, but we still got this strange curious result.
I got around the problem using the CONVERT function to change the integer value into a floating (e.g. Avg(CONVERT(FLOAT(5),fld)), but this is so strange that I'm sure we'll have the same problem again and again.
Now, can anyone tell me why the SQL engine is so incredibly stupid to presume that the average of a series of integer values is necessarily an integer???
I have a query that will generate records monthly based on the number of months that i calculate between two date feilds for a given requestid. How can i use the same query to generate records for weekly and bi weekly based on the receiveddate field that i use in the subtraction for calculating the number of months.
Also when inserting i have been adding a month for every record as i was generating monthly and now i would have to add week and 2 weeks to the receiveddate
SET NOCOUNT ON GO declare @num_of_times int declare @count int declare @frequency varchar(10) declare @num_of_times1 int
I am new to Reporting Services on SQL Server 2005 and I need help. I have a report that I have create below using matrices.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 Total
2004 80 60 70 95 70 85 60 90 110 55 90 90 50 1005
5 10 20 5
5 5 5 5
The columns represent each week in a quarter and the row represents the year the week is in and the details is the number of new accounts created during that particular week of the year. I have couple of questions.
How do I get and average for the number of account created per week per quarter?
How do I create a percentage of the change of accounts per week per year?
Hello all, I have the query below that is returning the difference in time between two scans, I now need to take that time and break it out by month and than break that out by shift and get an average for the 2 shifts for the month. Below is the query with some sample data. Your help is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!!
SELECT LoadID, DATEDIFF(MINUTE, mi, ma) AS DiffMinutes FROM SELECT LoadID, MIN(ProcessDate) AS mi, MAX(ProcessDate) AS ma FROM [Scan Detail] WHERE (ScanSequence = 2 AND LoadSequence = 2) OR (ScanSequence = 3 AND LoadSequence = 13) GROUP BY LoadID) d
I have a matrix that looks similar to the table above with two row groups and one column group. Does anyone know a way to manually do column and row based averaging without using the avg() function -as the data is not numerical? Thanks
We do a 4:00AM weekly reboot of every SQL 7.0 server on NT4 scheduled as a SQL Agent job using the os command "shutdown servername /l /c /y /r". The problem is some of the SQL servers recognize the NT shutdown command and gracefully exit out of SQL first with the SQL log entry "SQL Server terminating because of system shutdown", then closes all databases files. Most of the other SQL server do not list any SQL log messages and sometimes list startup error messages indicating a dirty shutdown.
Does anyone else reboot their SQL servers with a scheduled job? If so, how do you perform this task cleanly?

I also see the one below prior to another crash....going through tech net now...but not seeing anything that reflects the messages below.

This proceeds my 'crashes', which it looks scary enough to do the trick!
Any idea what could be causing this exception?
ps. someone else mentioned backup software - we use BackupExec and I have a sched. task that dumps one of the databases to a network drive 2x day. But these are running throughout the week...looking over the logs I really don't see a correlation...(ie. these same processes run on days that no crash occurs and successfully later in the day that the crashes do occur (some hours earlier).

Did you check the SQL Server errorlog (sometimes things are written here that don't go to the event viewer) and the NT event viewer (application and system)?
You could try turning on SQL Trace to see if you can capture a "bad" query but depending on how SQL goes down it may not be captured.
If you are auditing successful logons you could take a look to see if there is any pattern in who logs in just before SQL restarts.
Any chance someone is actually stopping it on purpose? Or maybe a program that is stopping it (maybe a backup system trying to backup the device files instead of the dumps)?

I need some help. Does anyone know how to create a select statetement that will generate a list of records that have been timestamped (datetime) on the week of the system date (getdate())? Assuming that Monday is the start of the week and Sunday is the lastday of the week.
Hi All I am using following code for my application SELECT convert(varchar(10),acr._eventTime,120) [Date], sum(case r.Severity WHEN 'Warning' THEN 1 end)[Warning], isnull(sum(case r.Severity WHEN 'OK' THEN 1 end),0)[OK], FROM ActiveCheckIssueResult r GROUP BY convert(varchar(10),acr._eventTime,120)
it gives me Result as,
Date warning OK --------- --------- ----- 1/1/1008 1 1 2/1/2008 0 2
i want count on weekly basis Could any one help me?
What daily/weekly checks do you guys currently perform on your servers and databases?
I recently ran across with an article from SQLServerCentral that listed a couple of daily checks that I'm thinking about implementing on my environment, and some of them are: DB Missing Recent Backup - Report DB Missing Recent Log Backup - Report Drives Low on Disk Space - Report Error Log Messages Report - Report Instance Recently Restarted - Report Job Failures - Report Large Databases Log File - Report
I already have in place: Verify is SQL Agent Service is running Check Disk Space Available
Since I'm going to spend some time on this, I was wondering if there's anything else that you guys have in place or any other 'nice to have' that you guys also might have, so I don't leave anything behind...
Need to write a query which would select data based on weekly wise based on the column Date.And week starts from Monday. Hence would reqiure a function or a query which would select only those records which would fall under respective Weeks.
I'm not sure this is the place for this question, but not sure where else to go. I've written asp.net code to read from a sql server 2005 db and send out customized emails based on user info.Currently the process gets rolling by clicking a button in a web page.The client doesn't want to click a button, they want to run the email sender on a timer.How can I set up my function to run on a timer either in asp.net or more likely called from sql server?
Hi: in sp_add_jobschedule @freq_type = 8 for weekly @freq_interval = 1 for Sunday.
I need to script to create a job which will run every Sunday 6 pm, to backup one prod database to a new backup device. EX. database name is DBTest, and the 7/20/2003 (Sunday) running result should be backup_DBTest_2003_07_20.bak. and next Sunday's should be backup_DBTest_2003_07_27.bak. (if this way, the backup device will be created at the begining of the job running...)
this way the backup would not be overwritten. Is there a way to dynamically generate 54 weeks job script from this coming Sunday?
Or to make the backup result as backup_DBTest_2003_week27.bak, backup_DBTest_2003_week28.bak....
I am new to this forum (actually to forums in general). I apologize for the long post, but I feel that someone must have done all this before and perhaps there are better approaches, so I felt I had to explain my objectives.
I have written a Daily(date) report for all the pertinent data in our production database. We want this data to persist for two years and be easily accessible. We also want other reports to use this data as a datasource rather than the production data because the production database is periodically purged of old data that may be of interest to these reports. So I am using SSRS not only as a reporting tool but also a sort of historical database.
To persist the daily report I added a Yesterday report that includes the Daily(date) as a subreport. The Yesterday report uses yesterday's date and has no paramters so it can be set up to run as a snapshot and be stored in the history. Daily(date) is set to use the cache which expires after 7 reports. So far so good.
I have now created a Weekly(weeknumber) report that includes 7 Daily(date) subreports and a LastWeek report that is schedule to run weekly as a snapshot and is stored in the history. I am hoping that because the Daily(date) reports have already been run by the Yesterday report, their datasets will still be in the cache and this will not cause a refresh from the production database. Am I right?
Basically, I want to keep access to the production database to a minimum, not store (much) duplicate data in the Report Server database and yet still have quick and easy access to the data going back 2 years even though it has long since been purged from the production database.
I considered to use the 7 daily reports as a datasources for the weekly report so that I could aggregate the data each week and expire the daily reports (and again for months, quarters and years). However, I was unable to figure out how to use a report as a datasource.
My questions come down to these...
Will the approach I am pursuing work?
Is it the best approach?
If a report includes subreports that have already been run individually with the same parameters, will the cached subreport be used.
How do you use an existing reports as datacsources for an aggregated report? I look forward to hearing your suggestions.
I have a weekly Maintenance Plan Reindex job that has failed because of a deadlock. My question seems simple enough and I'm ashamed to say I ought to know this answer, but here goes: Does the rest of a given job continue after such failures (this one was maybe 3/4 through the log) occur?
Hi Guys, I am generating Transaction Activity report,which should get data by weekly.Report shold look like this.
W1 W2 W3 W4 W5 W6
OKC 79 38 50 76 35 47
NFL 0 0 45 43 33 28
Total 79 38 95 119 68 75
Iam passing 3 parameters @startdate,@enddate,@Market. when i select one Market(OKC/NFL/LA), report generating properly, but when i passing 3 markets values(OKC,NFL,LA), iam getting wrong report,report format is not correct.I used Cross tab for generating this report.Result lam getting like this.
W37 W38 W39 W40 W41 W42 W43 W44 W45
And i wrote query like this,
select m.Market_name as Market,'W'+datename(ww,ut.creation_date) as Week,count(ut.transaction_id) as Count from POS.DSC_TRANSACTION_STATUS_VL ts inner join POS.DSC_USER_TRANSACTION ut on ts.transaction_status=ut.transaction_status inner join POS.RETAIL_LOCATION rl on ut.rl_number=rl.rl_number inner join POS.BILLING_MARKETS bm on rl.bm_code=bm.bm_code inner join dbo.Market m on bm.market_id=m.market_id where (ut.creation_date between @startdate and @enddate) and m.market_name IN(@Market) group by m.Market_name,ut.creation_date order by m.Market_name desc
Could you please some one help me to get this correctly.
I have the following code which works and outputs the desired results, however I am attempting to figure out a way to get this output by week starting from January 5th to July 6th without having to manually change the date for each week and running again. Ideally I would like to be able to save the results to Excel separated by server by week.
Code: SELECT AVG(cast(StatValue as float))as 'CPU Utilization', StatName, ServerName as 'Server Name', from dbo.ServerStats s WHERE s.StatName IN ('MEMPTAGE-TOTAL', 'CPUPEAKP-TOTAL', 'DISKPERC-C', 'DISKPERC-F',
I want the count of orders of a particular table on weekly basis i.e if date given to me is 10/3/2014 then my output should be count of orders from date 10/3/2014 to 09/3/2014(one week) then count of orders from 2/3/2014 to 08/3/2014(another week) and then from 24/2/2014 to 01/3/2014(another week).....
DELETING 100 million from a table weekly SQl SERVER 2000Hi AllWe have a table in SQL SERVER 2000 which has about 250 million recordsand this will be growing by 100 million every week. At a time the tableshould contain just 13 weeks of data. when the 14th week data needs tobe loaded the first week's data has to be deleted.And this deletes 100 million every week, since the delete is taking lotof transaction log space the job is not successful.Can you please help with what are the approaches we can take to fixthis problem?Performance and transaction log are the issues we are facing. We trieddeletion in steps too but that also is taking time. What are thedifferent ways we can address this quickly.Please reply at the earliest.ThanksHarish
