Importing Access Table Into SQL Server 2005 Express Table And Adding One Field

Feb 16, 2007

Hi all,

Hopefully I am posting this question in the correct forum. I am still learning about SQL 2005. Here is my issue. I have an access db that I archive weekly into and SQL server table. I have used the dst wizard to create an import job and initally that worked fine. field I have as the primary key in the access db cannot be the primary key in the sql table since I archive weekly and that primary key field will be imported several time over. I overcame this initally by not having a primary key in the sql table. This table is strictly for reference. However, now I need to setup a unique field for each of the records in the sql table. What I have done so far is create a recordID field in the sql table that is an int and set as yes to Identify (auotnumber). That worked great and created unique id for all existing records. The problem now is on the import. When I try to import the access table i am getting an error because of the extra field in the sql table, and the error is saying cannot import null value into this field. So... my final question is how can I import the access table into the sql table with one extra field which is the autonumber unique field? Thanks a bunch for any asistance.

How Does Adding Constraints Affect Performance?

Jul 23, 2005

I'm considering adding domain integrity checks to some of my database tableitems. How does adding such constraints affect SQL Server performance? Forexample, I have a simple constraint that restricts a couple of columns tohaving values within the values assigned in my application by anenumeration:(([Condition] >= 0 and [Condition] <=3) and ([Type] >= 0 and [Type] <=2))This enforces domain integrity for two enumerations having values 0, 1, 2, 3and 0, 1, 2 in the application. Is this an efficient way of performing suchchecks? What are the pitfalls of domain integrity checking?ThanksRobin

DB Engine :: Migrate Table Data When Dealing With Constraints

Nov 19, 2015

I need to script out data in several tables (30+) and then reload those tables on a different database.  The "target" database table data will get overwritten each time, not appended to.  Several of these tables have numerous foreign keys and other constraints that must be dealt with.  None of them have more than 100 records or so.  Then I need to keep this script in source control and reference it as part of a post-deployment step with a Visual Studio DB project.

I have redgate, dbghost and visual studio.  Are there any tools will generate the script for me complete with dropping all the constraints, truncating the tables, then re-adding the constraints back?  Or, am I looking at simply scripting the table data out, then modifying the script myself to add in the steps to drop/readd the constraints?  Further, since some of these tables might have relationships, not just to other tables, but to those in question, there will likely be an order in which the tables need to get loaded.

The approach I am thinking will be needed, since ive done this sort of thing before except with SSIS, is to run something like dbghost or the "generate scripts" option in SSMS as a starting point.  From there, change the order around as needed, etc.

Adding New Columns With Check Constraints Using Same Batch

Jul 11, 2006

I'm using a stored procedure to add fields to an existing table.

These fields must have check constraints and I need to use one T-SQL batch.

In Sql2000 Ok. In Sql2005, if table exists, I get error "invalid column xxxxx" in Add Constraint statement before new column creation.

the code is

Declare @Setup bit

Set @Setup = 1

if @Setup = 1 Begin

--Alter Table MyTable Add MyField Numeric(1, 0) Not Null Default 3

Exec mySp_Add_Column 'MyTable', 'MyField', 'Numeric (1, 0) Not Null', '3'

If IsNull(ObjectProperty(Object_Id('xCK_MyTable_MyField'), 'IsConstraint'), 0) = 0

Alter Table MyTable Add Constraint xCK_MyTable_MyField Check (MyField >= 1 And MyField <= 3)

End Else Begin

-- drop column



If MyTable does not exist and, naturally, I add it before of check constraints (using another Sp which add tables) ok.

If I add FK to new fields, ok.

Now I have to split batch in two parts as workaround...

Can anyone tell me if this is a bug or a "fix" for previous versions?

Many thanks,

Copy Table Data Back And Forth

Mar 16, 2006

This is probably a dumb question.. but here goes.

I'd like to make a copy of several tables before changes are made to them so that I can 'roll back' if necessary.

What I 'thought' i could to was this:

select * into mytable_temp from mytable

and then to roll back..

truncate table mytable

Select * into mytable from mytable_temp

When I try and select back into my original table, it says I can't because the object already exists.. What is a better way to accomplish this????

How To Take Data Out Of Table, Restructure The Table And Then Put The Data Back In

Oct 26, 2005

Hi AllWonder if you could help, I have a bog standard table called STOCKPRICESthat has served me well for a while, but now I need to change the structureof it and because a number of users have used it in it's present form I needto so the following in SQL script:a) Grab a snapshot of the current SQL data.b) Re-structure the STOCKPRICES table.c) Post this grabbed data back, but in the new format.My script plan was to firstly to rename the current STOCKPRICES table toSTOCKPRICESOLD (you can do this can't you), create a new STOCKPRICES tablein the new format and then somehow extract the data from STOCKPRICESOLD andsquirt it into STOCKPRICES.The current schema for STOCKPRICES is as follows:# --------------------------------------------------# Table structure for table 'STOCKPRICES'# --------------------------------------------------DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `STOCKPRICES`;CREATE TABLE `STOCKPRICES` (`STOCKID` VARCHAR(30),`CURRENCYID` VARCHAR(30),`HDNETAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,`HDTAXAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,`RRPNETAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,`RRPTAXAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,`NETAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,`TAXAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,INDEX `indxCUURENCYID` (`CURRENCYID`),INDEX `indxSTOCKID` (`STOCKID`));Like I said it's very basic.My new table wants to be like the following:# --------------------------------------------------# Table structure for NEW table 'STOCKPRICES'# --------------------------------------------------DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `STOCKPRICES`;CREATE TABLE `STOCKPRICES` (`STOCKID` VARCHAR(30),`CURRENCYID` VARCHAR(30),`PRICELEVELID` VARCHAR(30),`NETAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,`TAXAMOUNT` DECIMAL(10,3) DEFAULT 0,INDEX `indxPRICELEVELID` (`PRICELEVELID`),INDEX `indxCUURENCYID` (`CURRENCYID`),INDEX `indxSTOCKID` (`STOCKID`));The new re-structure means that PRICELEVELID will include a unique referenceto the HD, RRP, standard prices (plus 3 others that I'm going to create).I know this probably very simple data architecture to you guys, but I'm sureyou can appreciate why I need to change the structure to this method so thatI'm not creating redundant data fields if the user only enters a standardprice I won't be storing nothing for the 2 x HD and 2 x RRP price fields.I don't think I've got a problem renaming the old one and re-creating thenew one, but how do I get the data from one to another?My problem is that I have:code, currency, hdnet, hdtax, rrpnet, rrptax, net, taxIVP GBP 2.00 0.35 200.00 35.00 100.00 17.50etc...and I need to get it into the format:code, currency, pricelevelid, net, taxIVP GBP hd 2.00 0.35IVP GBP rrp 200.00 35.00IVP GBP standard 100.00 17.50etc...Any ideas?RgdsLaphan

SQL Tools :: Adding Column To A Table Causes Copying Data Into Temp Table

Sep 23, 2015

If on the source I have a new column, the script generated by SqlPackage.exe recreates the table on the background with moving the data into a temp storage. If the table is big, such approach can cause issues.

Example of the script is below: in the source project I added columns [MyColumn_LINE_1]  and [MyColumn_LINE_5].

Is there any way I can make it generating an alter statement instead?

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tmp_ms_xx_MyTable] (

[Code] ....

The same script is generated regardless the table having data or not, having a clustered or nonclustered PK.

Transact SQL :: Get Back (Identity) ID To The Other Table In SSIS Data Flow?

Jul 17, 2015

Table 1:

-------     -----                ----          ----
Name       Add                  No         RowID
-------     -----                 ----         -------

aa     #a-1,India                              10
bb     #a-1,India                              11                
aa     #a-1,India                              12


 table 1 inserting to Table 2 (Using 1st Data flow)

Table 2:

-------     -----                ----
Name       Add                 ID(Note:Here Identity1,1)
-------     -----                 ----
aa     #a-1,India                 1
bb     #a-1,India                 2
aa     #a-1,India                 3


My Requirement is Update  Table 1 set Column::No=Table 2.ID
based on Exact Match of
Table1.Name=Table2.Name  and

It means Get back the Id for Source Table 1

 2nd Data flow
             Source(Table1:Name, Add,No)

   --LOOKUP(Table2:Name, Add::Matched Look Columns Name, Add and
Tick Mark on ID)

   -->OLEDB Command: update Table1 set N0=? where  RowID=?(Here Param_0= NO ,Param_1=RowID)

Here My Issue is if  Table 1 had Duplicates(same Name, Add, but Row Id is different it is Updating Same ID for Table 1.No It means Get Back ID correctly not updating Result::

Table 1:

-------     -----                ----          ----
Name       Add                  No         RowID
-------     -----                 ----         -------
aa     #a-1,India                1              10
bb     #a-1,India                2              11                
aa     #a-1,India              1 12


My correct Output is     3      instead of Result:Table1 1.NO  1   where RowID =12

It caused by LOOKUP , It picking Top1 ID while Matching Look on fields.

How Should I update the (Identity) Get Back Table 2.ID to Source Table1. NO  in Above logic in SSIS?

Adding Data To More Than One Table

Jul 10, 2006

Hi there,I am currently setting up a registration system where customers can registers their details and the details of the product, using and MS SQL.There is a column called customerID in the Custoemrs table, and a column of the same name in the Products table, so that I can have relationships between the tables.For obvious reasons (ie. people that quit half-way through), I want to hold all the information until the end. The ID in the Customer  table is unique, and auto-increasing, and therefore not assigned until the data enters the database.However, I wish to submit information to the Products table at the same time, but what shall I put in for the custoemrID (which hasn't yet been assigned)Thank you in advance for your help,Nathair

Problems With Adding Data To Wider Table

I want to insert a record with fields let say"ProductCode, Name" to a table with records like "ProductCode, Name, NumberofItems". I get mismatching errors "Conversion from string "INSERT INTO dbo.t_Shopping(Productcod" to type 'Double' is not valid.". Note the missing last letter. ProductCode and Name are both varChars, NumberofItems is int in table and double in my code. This is my insertion script ".CommandType = CommandType.Text = "INSERT INTO dbo.t_Shopping(ProductCode, Name, NumberofItems)SELECT ProductCode, Name, @NumberofItems FROM dbo.t_Product WHERE ProductCode=@ProductCode"I have asked this question previously in an other mail, but probably because that thread was marked solved, no one answered.The whole code is like this: I translated some names.

Constraints Go When Upgrading Access DB

Dec 8, 1998


I have just tried to upgrade an Access database for the first time. All the tables & data have been moved into SQL Server, but all the Primary Keys & Foreign Keys have disappeared. The Primary Key columns are marked as allowing NULL values in SQL Server, and I can't change them to be NOT NULL.

I used the ACCESS export facility to upgrade the database.

Can anyone help me put the constraints into the SQL Server database???

I'm About To Go Back To 'Access'... Help Me

Feb 15, 2008

Hello all ASP'ers,  I'm very familiar with .net code and data access as it is what I do for a living. However, what I don't do a lot is make my own web project from scratch. All our DB connections are handled through a DB class that we instansiate and use, quite easy. BTW, we hit an Oracle DB and code in C# in VS 2008 Team Developer.Here's my (simple I hope) dilemma.I'm using VS2008, C#, SQL server database. I put a text box and a button on the front page (of my web page) for users to enter their email address for a newsletter. I created the DB by right-mouse-clicking on my project icon in the Solution Explorer, add new item, then selected SQLServer Database, it and saved it. It now appears in the Solution Explorer. I've added the table and columns I need but for the life of me I cannot connect to it. I've seen TONS of connection string examples but I need help getting the proper syntax for my situationI have not created a user ID or a password for the database. What do I put in for the DataSource and the database?I dragged the database icon into my code and got the local path wher it resides:C:FilesWebProjects2008WbProjApp_DataNews.mdfHere is the most common connection string I see for SQL Server:SqlConnection Conn = new SqlConnection(" + "Data Source=Your server name;" +                      <------ What goes here?"database=Your Database Name;" +                     <------ What goes here?"UID=UserID of the server;" +                               <------ Can I get rid of this?"PWD=password of the server;");                         <------ Can I get rid of this?I've done a different project using an Access DB and have that guy up on the web working great, I just can't get htis one connected and the data a' flowin'.Please help, this is my personal website and I want to use SQL Server but I'm getting frustrated and just might go back to Access, aaaaggghhhhhhh...Once I get past the Conn.Open(); in a try/catch I'll be good. I've got the rest of the data commands in place and ready to go. Here is a link to a visual to help you see what I'm doing, it's just a shot of my solution explorer.

MS Access To SQL Server Back End On Web

Apr 6, 2004

I am trying to set up an Access db to connect to a SQL server back end. I created a system DSN and then linked the Access db to it; no problem when the Access db is local.
When I upload the Access db to the website, it refuses to connect; I keep getting this error message:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] ODBC--connection to 'SQS2008' failed.

Here is the ASP code in the web page (pretty plain vanilla):
DIM Connect2
SET Connect2=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.CONNECTION")
DSNTemp="Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; "
DSNTemp = DSNTemp & "DBQ=" & server.mappath("yetanothertest.mdb")
connect2.Open DSNTemp

SET onwash2=Connect2.Execute("SELECT * FROM LineStandardPolicies")

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

How To Access Back-end Of Finished SQL App

Sep 12, 2004


I'm a MS Access developer who needs to help someone migrate/convert from a 'finished' SQL application to Access. How do I gain access to the SQL backend so I can examine/export the raw data? For example, in Access, I would hold down the Shift key while opening the program and it would give me editing rights to the database.

Please be very specific because I have zero experience with SQL.

Data Access :: How To Load Data From CSV File In Temp Table At Run Time

May 28, 2015

how I can load the CSV file data into the sql server table. I know there are ways like bulk insert and other to load the csv file data into the table. But in my case the table doesn't exist and has to be created at the run time. With simple insert in temp table we do like select * into #temp from tablename and that creates the temp table. So. I need something like that which create the temp table and load the data into it. because the CSV file would have different number of columns and names so I can not create the table structure in advance. I have to create the table at run time.

Delete Query In Access W/SQL Back-End

Nov 15, 2007

I Have read a few of the postings and I hate to beat a dead horse. But I am desperatly looking for your Help...

I am converting all of my Access Databases over to SQL server 2005. but the catch is that I need to keep Access as my front-end. One of the problems that I have faced (and there maybe more) but when it comes to running queries (especially Delete), I cannot seem to get things to work.

I would like to just store all of my data in SS2K5 and have all of my queries and forms run in Access.

Why is it that I am getting errors that do not seem to make sense (Access Error 3086) when I have opened up all of the permissions associated to my database?

Please let me know if anyone has any type of solution, or some place that I can go to that will help me understand this a little more.

my query is pretty simple.

DELETE Opsec_View.*
FROM Opsec_View;

Using SQL Server CE As A Back-end To An MS Access Front-end

Mar 2, 2007

I have a back-end front-end application in MS Access. Instead of using MS Access queries it gets data via recordsets generated from SQL scripts in VBA routines.

I'm planning to upgrade it to use SQL Server as the back-end. However I need to retain the alternative option of using a file based back-end. (It currently has the capacity to be switched between alternative Access .mdb back-end files.) Is there any information available on how to do this and on how to get Access to synchronize between SQL Server and SQL Server CE back-ends? (Eventually the application will be migrated to VB.NET, but that is a long way down the track.)

UGH! Failed To Enable Constraints. One Or More Rows Contain Values Violating Non-null, Unique, Or Foreign-key Constraints.

Jan 9, 2007

I know this is probably a flick of a switch but I cannot figure out which switch.  Setup is SQL Server / Stored Procedures / DAL / BLL(skipped for testing) / PL.  The stored procedure queries from only one table and two columns are ignored because they are being phased out.  I can run the stored procedure and preview the data in the DAL but when I create a page with an ODS linked to the DAL and a GridView I get this error.  I checked every column that does not allow nulls and they all have values.  I checked unique columns (ID is the only unique and is Identity=Yes in the table definition).  I checked foreign-key columns for values that are not in the foreign table and there are none.  Any ideas why do I get this?

Passing Null Value From Front End Access To SQL Back End

Dec 19, 2007


I'm not sure if this question should be in this thread but anyway...

I have a form (Mricosoft Access front end) in which the user enter a Pending Date in one of the fields. The date is populated into my backend (SQL Server) withouht problems.
Whenever the issue which had the pending date in the field is resolved I'd like to delete this date from this field and also from the back end. At the moment I'm not being able to pass the "value" Null to my back end (probably because it's a datetime type). I've searched the net throughout and I couldn't find a way around it. Only found solution to when the data is not date but numbers/letters, etc... Any ideas on how can I sort this out?

Many thanks

Converting Stored Procedures Back To MS Access Queries

I know its a weird request, but we have created an application with sql server but our client wants a version which can be put onto disk.

We decided to create the stored procedures into queries, would this be the best idea and if so does anyone know if there is a freeware software that can do this or will I have to painstakingly re-create the queries?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

SQL Back - Access Front - Replication - Records 'jump'

May 12, 2007

Hi all :

I hope this is an easy one for some of you - this is the scenario :

1) I have an Access Application that has been upsized to SQL

2) We are now replicating it with a second office

3) When we started doing the Merge Replication, the ROWGUID was added to each table

4) When we attempt to add a new record to the table, it allows us to add 3 fields, then the record 'jumps' to the indexed location of the ROWGUID

5) The 'jump' is undesirable as we then have to resort the table by key and finish its input.

5) We have our own primary identity field that SQL seems to be ignoring.

Any help would be really great
