Substring Function
it's early in the morning (well it is here anyway) and i need a shot of logic...

in the data base i'm currently working with i have a varchar field that holds either a number or a collection of numbers in square brackets. I need to extract the number or the first number in square brackets if it's a list. i know it's gonna be a simple one but my head just won't do it?? i'm trying with substring and charindex to determine the position of the '[' but just not getting it this morning

quick sample of what the data in this column may look like...

declare @t table (col varchar(30))
insert into @t
select '2' union all
select '[5] [4]' union all
select ' [12] [1]'

so i need to get...


OK, so i get this to work but only if there is actually square brackets

declare @t table (col varchar(30))
insert into @t
--select '2'union all
select '[5] [4]'union all
select ' [12] [1]'

select col
,substring(col, charindex('[',col)+1, charindex(']',col)-charindex('[',col)-1)
from @t

Substring Function Can't Figure Out
I have a SQL query in Visual Studio (SSRS). I have a GL Account field that is formatted such as 100-400-123-1234. I wanted to use the substring function to pull out the second set of numbers which I can assign a location:

CASE WHEN substring(GlAccount,5,3)= '400' THEN 'Gainesville'
CASE WHEN substring(GlAccount,5,3)= '401' THEN 'Aledo'

I tried this and it comes back with syntax errors. Can anyone tell me how to approach this as I have a list of about 35 locations that I need to do like this. Thanks.

Problem In Substring Function
Harshi writes "Hello SQL Team!!

I have a problem in Substring function. There is a Text data type field in my Table and it has large no of characters. I want to get the whole text as the result. The problem is its just giving me 300 characters from a row, as the result.

My statement as follows;

Performance Issue Using Left Or Substring Function

I've tried the following query in SQL SERVER 2005, SQL Express and MACCESS.

select * from Table1 where drid in (SELECT DrID FROM Table2 WHERE (substring(PostalCode,1,3) IN ('B0E','B1P','B2H','B2Y','B3A','B3M','B4A','B4H','E1A','E1C','E1N','G0A', …)) and (substring(Telephone,1,3) IN ('204','250','306','403','416','418','450','506','514','519','604','613','705','780','807','819','902','905')))

The query is using two table. The first one Table1 is a table with user info. The second table Table2 has the info concerning a survey.

The Table1 containt approx. 6000 row and Table2 containt only 210 rows

The table structure from the different environment(MACCESS, SQL SERVER 2005, Sql Server Express 2005) are the same. The Table1 containt the field "PostalCode" and "Telephone".

When I execute this query on MACCESS and in SQL Server 2005 the result are approximately the same(Less than half second). But there a performance issue in Sql Express 2005. The query take an execution time between 7 and 9 secondes.

When I add a condition using a field from tblResponsePQ2Part1 ex: QA=1
like in the following query :
select * from Table1 where drid in (SELECT DrID FROM Table2
WHERE (QA = 1 substring(PostalCode,1,3) IN ('B0E','B1P','B2H','B2Y','B3A','B3M','B4A','B4H','E1A','E1C','E1N','G0A', …)) and (substring(Telephone,1,3) IN ('204','250','306','403','416','418','450','506','514','519','604','613','705','780','807','819','902','905')))
the query take an execution time of ~15 secondes!!!!

This issue only happen in Sql Server Express, on the others cases(mean MSAccess, Sql Server) the execution time is less than half second.

It’s weird because, Sql Express 2005 is supposed to be more performant
than MACCESS, and have the same performance than Sql Server Professional Edition. Please Help Me!!!!

Anyone have an idea why?

Error: Invalid Length Parameter Passed To The SUBSTRING Function.

I am using a simple procedure to pivot results (found in another forum and adapted it). It is done on SQL Server 2005 server with all service packs. Procedure:
ALTER Procedure [dbo].[EthnicityPivot] @StDate as Datetime, @EndDate as Datetime
DECLARE @Teams varchar(2000)

truncate table ForEthnicPivot

INSERT INTO ForEthnicPivot
FROM dbo._EthnicityByTeamEpisode
where Startdate between @StDate and @EndDate
GROUP BY Ethnicity, Team

SET @Teams = ''
--// Get a list of the pivot columns that are important to you.

SELECT @Teams = @Teams + '[' + Team + '],'
FROM (SELECT Distinct Team FROM ForEthnicPivot) Team
--// Remove the trailing comma

SET @Teams = LEFT(@Teams, LEN(@Teams)-1)
--// Now execute the Select with the PIVOT and dynamically add the list
--// of dates for the columns
EXEC( 'SELECT * FROM ForEthnicPivot PIVOT (SUM(countID) FOR Team IN (' + @Teams + ')) AS X' )

I can call the function:
exec EthnicityPivot '01/01/2007','09/09/2007'

and it works fine in SQL analyzer, but when I want to use it in Visual Studio in a new report I am getting this error

There is an error in the query. Invalid length parameter passed to the SUBSTRING function. Incorrect syntax near ')'.

Anyone had similar error and sorted it?

Aggregate Function/Join Troubles

I am running into trouble performing a second join on a column while using aggregate functions over that table.

What I think is happening is that the aggregate values (sum, avg, count) are being multiplied because I am joining on the same table a second time, but I don't know how to fix or avoid this problem.

Here's the query:


CAST(ro.xing_tc_no AS INT) AS loc_id,
SUM(ro.total_fatal) AS tot_fatal,
SUM(ro.total_serious) AS tot_serious,
SUM(ro.total_minor) AS tot_minor,
COUNT(ro.report_no) AS tot_accidents,
AVG(ro.NO_OCCUPANTS) AS num_occupants

UserHotspots uh

LEFT JOIN rods_k_crossing AS rkc
ON rkc.location_id = uh.CrossingID

LEFT JOIN rods_occurrence AS ro
ON rkc.tc_location_nbr = ro.xing_tc_no



The second join is also performed on rods_k_crossing and that is when the sums, avgs, and counts get multiplied. If I take that second join out the numbers come out fine.

Thanks for any help!

Join On Agragate Function Between Tables
A have a number of similar tables and what I want to do is to get the count of records grouped by day of week. All tables have date as an indexed unique column but the actual timestamps differs and have no relation. For one table I use this simple querry:

Select DatePart(dw,dato) AS DOW, Count(dato) AS NOR FROM AWP2
where dato > '2006-08-11'
Group By DatePart(dw,dato)

A typical result:

3           8934
6           22397
7           23328
1           23401
4           1938
2           24399
5          1112


Trying to join two or more tables in all sorts of variants of this:

Select datePart(dw,a1.dato) AS DOW1,Count(a1.dato) [Amount 1],
datePart(dw,a2.dato) AS DOW2, Count(a2.dato) [Amount 2]
FROM AWP1 A1 Inner Join AWP2 A2 on datePart(dw,a1.dato) = datePart(dw,a2.dato)
Where a1.dato > '2006-08-11' AND a2.dato > '2006-08-11'
Group By datePart(dw,a1.dato), datePart(dw,a2.dato)

Here I get this as a typical result:

DOW1   Amount 1     DOW2      Amount 2
6           332953802   6            332953802
3           42248886     3            42248886

4           1232568      4            1232568
5           210168        5            210168

How To Join Using A Table-valued Function?
Hi there. I've hit some gap in my SQL fundementals. I'm playing with table-valued functions but I can't figure out how to join those results with another table. I found another way to hit my immediate need with a scalar function, but ultimately I'm going to need to use some approach like this. What am I misunderstanding here?

The Given Objects:
function Split(stringToSplit, delimiter) returns table (column: token)
table Words (column: Words.word) -- table of predefined words
table Sentences (column: Sentences.sentence) -- table of sentences; tokens may not be in Words table, etc

The Problems:
1) how do I query a set of Sentences and their Tokens? (using Split)
2) how do I join tables Sentences and Words using the Split function?

The Attempts:
select word, sentence, token
from Words,
dbo.Split(sentence, ' ') -- implicitly joins Split result with Sentences?
where word = token

resulting error: "'sentence' is not a recognized OPTIMIZER LOCK HINTS option."

select word, sentence
from Words, Sentences
where word in (select token from dbo.Split(sentence, ' ')) -- correlated subquery?

resulting error: "'sentence' is not a recognized OPTIMIZER LOCK HINTS option."

Passing Variable To Table Function In Join
Hello, thanks in advance for reading this. I am having difficulty trying to get a statement to work.

There is a MAIN table:
ItemNo int identity(1,0),
ItemType tinyint

There is a WETPAINT table:
ItemNo int,
Color varchar(20)

There is a DRYPAINT table:
ItemNo int,
Color varchar(20)

Now, what I want to do is JOIN the MAIN table to either the WETPAINT table or the DRYPAINT table depending on the value of MAIN.ItemType

So I created a table function called getTable:

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[gettable]
@ItemType int = 1
@thistable TABLE
Color varchar(20)

if @ItemType = 1
insert into @thistable (color) select color from WETPAINT
if @ItemType = 2
insert into @thistable (color) select color from DRYPAINT

This is all fine and dandy if I iterate through the MAIN table one row at a time, but how can I JOIN the tables, like:

SELECT MAIN.ItemNo, a.Color
INNER JOIN gettable(Main.ItemNo) as a
ON a.ItemNo = MAIN.ItemNo

Obviously, there is more than one field in the DRYPAINT and WETPAINT tables, and there is a need to have both tables instead of combining them into one.

Any help in how to create a table alias by passing a value from the select statement would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again.

PS -- I am trying to create a view with this, so I can't use variables and iterate through the MAIN table one row at a time.

Hi all,
I have just started using SQL7 and quite dumb at it.
Here is my problem

i have tables ip_address and ip_subnets. both contains more than 20,000 records. Though ideally each subnet should correspond to only one ip address it is not so due to SMS inventory and remote clients configurations etc.

As an example If my ip address is I need to select only ( or atleast 141.151.128.*)as the valid subnet. In other words I need to compare upto 3rd octet and only if it matches with ip address then declare that as the valid subnet.
Pls note that ip addresses vary for each machine though there will 4 octets, I can't use character positions as the nos in each octet might vary from 1-255.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Can You Use Substring In ASP.NET On A DropDownList ?
I'm using the GridView to display some accounting infromation. I have a project where I have a 14 character control number. I would like to have a dropdown list to select the account classification of records to be displayed. The accounting classification is the first two characters of the control number.  So the dropdown list needs to show unique first two characters and the GridView will be filtered on these two characters.  I have been trying to use "substring" in the ASP.NET code; not even sure you can.
Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.  See code below:
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="True" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2"
DataTextField="control_num" DataValueField="control_num">
</asp:DropDownList><asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource2" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:GPCRReportsConnectionString %>"
SelectCommand="SELECT DISTINCT [substring(control_num,1,2)] FROM [Request]"></asp:SqlDataSource>
ERROR: Invalid column name 'substring(control_num,1,2)'.
