Putting Attribute On Root Node Using FOR XML PATH

May 17, 2006

I would like to know how to put an attribute on the root node of the
xml returned from a FOR XML PATH query. One thing I tried is this:

m.msgid '@msgID',
st.namelong 'set/@namelong',
st.nameshort 'set/@nameshort',
msgset m
inner join settable st on (st.setid = m.setid)
where m.msgID = 195
for xml path('set'), root('message')

but it gives me:

<set msgID="195">
<set namelong="STUFF HERE" nameshort="STUFF" />
<set msgID="195">
<set namelong="MORE STUFF" nameshort="M STUFF" />
<set msgID="195">
<set namelong="TESTING 123" nameshort="TEST" />

here is what I want:

<message msgID="195">
<set namelong="STUFF HERE" nameshort="STUFF" />
<set namelong="MORE STUFF" nameshort="M STUFF" />
<set namelong="TESTING 123" nameshort="TEST" />

I can't get it. If I use: root(''), then it tells me: "Row tag
omission (empty row tag name) cannot be used with attribute-centric FOR
XML serialization." I'm sure there is a trick to this-- any

Many thanks.

Hello everyone,

I have an xml file that looks like this:

?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

What i need is to find a way to retrieve the value of the attribute belonging to the root element (value of @Date) in SSIS.
Tried it using Xpath but don't know how i should configure the xml task editor or if maybe there's any other way to perform such a task.

SQL Server 2012 :: View To Concatenate File / Path Names Back To Root Directory?

Sep 25, 2014

We have a hierarchical table of some 2-3k of rows that grows slowly at only 3-5 rows a month, and is never likely to be above 5k, holding file/directory names with an IdParent int value pointing at that items immediate parent or NULL if root

Below is a sample:

Id Name IdParent
3 ProgramFiles 1
4 DataFiles 2
5 Excel.EXE 3
6 MyDataList.CSV 4

iterative code required to achieve the result I am looking for is best handled in the Application layer, but in this case the design brief is that we must get our results back as a View. Speed of execution and code clarity are secondary 'icing on the cake' issues.

I have tried recursive CTE's and XML FOR solutions but without success, and while I feel the latter is probably the best all rounder the searches I have made and the examples I have read do not seem to solve this particular issue.

Even to find the starting point of the search tree (i.e. the .EXE and the .CSV items) was difficult because the final slash is optional in some of the rows (.e. row 4)

The end result of my view on the above data should return:

Id FilePath
5 C:ProgramFilesExcel.EXE
6 D:DataFilesMyDataList.CSV (note the adding of the missing delimiter between DataFiles and MyDataList)

PMML: One Node In A Decision Tree Containing Two States Of An Attribute As The Rule For Splitting?

Sep 22, 2006

is there a way to import a decision tree-model from pmml where a node contains two or more states of an attribute as the split-rule?


<Node recordCount="600">
<CompoundPredicate booleanOperator="or">
<SimplePredicate field="color" operator="equal" value="red" />
<SimplePredicate field="color" operator="equal" value="green" />
<ScoreDistribution value="true" recordCount="200"/>
<ScoreDistribution value="false" recordCount="400"/>

This node shoud contain all cases, whose color is red or green (The Microsoft DecisionTree-Algorithm would build a model with two steps like red/ not red and then green / not green). According to the DMG, this is valid PMML 2.1, but when trying to import the server complains about an unexpected value in the SimplePredicate-tag.

How can i import such a node in SqlServer 2005?

Thank you in advance for any help

Transact SQL :: HierarchyID - How To Give A Column Name For Node Path

Aug 19, 2015

I just started learning HierarchyID and copied the the following code from [URL] .... and Chapter 7 Hierarchical Data and the Relational Database of the book "Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2012", written by L. G. Lobel and A. J. Brust (Published by Microsoft Press):

-- shcHierarchyid_1.sql
-- 19 August 2015 13:15 PM

USE master
IF EXISTS(SELECT name FROM sys.databases WHERE name = 'shcDB')

[Code] ....

I executed the code in my Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Management Studio (SSMS2012).  It worked nicely. But, I don't understand the following 2 things:

#1: In the Results, I got:          

(No column name)     Position    Title
                1       /          CEO
                2 /1/         0x58      Purchase Manager
                3      /1/1/         0x5AC0 Purchase Executive
                4      /2/             0x68       Sales Manager
                5 /2/1/         0x6AC0  Sales Executive

I don't know how to give a column name for the /, /1/, /1/1/, /2/, /2/1/ (NodePath (?) I guessed). How I can give a column name to that column.

#2:   The book lists "USE master  GO .....".  I wonder whether I can do the "hierarchyid" thing in the private database I created!!??  Whether I can do the "hierarchyid" thing in the private database or not.

Measure Group Attribute Key Column Does Not Match Source Attribute

May 16, 2008


I had to change the key columns of a dimension attribute to fix an error. I did this in BIDS. The change was from a single key column to a composite key column. Now I am getting these error when I process the cube:

Measure group attribute key column x does not match source attribute ..

I looked at the cube XMLA definition under mesaure groups and it still shows a single key column with inherited binding. However, the BIDS does not give me an option correct this in any way. I have had to do this once before and the only option seems to be removing the dimension from the cube and add it back in. But that is very error prone since I lose any specific settings at the cube dimension level not to mention aggregations no longer include the dimension, etc.

Not seeing an alternative, I went through each measure group (I have 7) and changed the key columns manually in the XMLA and saved the cube. This worked, but I don't understand why BIDS automatically doesn't do it.

Is this a flaw in the BIDS or I should be missing something.

SQL 2012 :: Log Shipping - Reboot Secondary Node And Then Primary Node

Apr 20, 2015

I have not used log shipping before and find myself in a position where I need to reboot the secondary node and then the primary node and I don't actually need to failover.

Is there anything I need to be aware of. When rebooting the secondary node I assume the transactions will be held in the primary nodes log till the secondary comes back and just carry on once back up?

When rebooting the primary node nothing needs to be done and the log shipping will just start again once it has come back?

SQL 2012 :: Running 2 Distinct AGs On Each Node Of A Two Node Cluster?

Oct 23, 2014

I'm contemplating running two availability groups on a two node WSFC. The WSFC is setup with a file share witness (i.e. no shared storage). Can I safely run 1 AG on one primary node, and the other AG on the other node (as primary). Each AG would have replicas on the passive node. This would effectively allow both servers to be in use at the same time. In a failover event, I understand that both workloads would transfer to a single server - so the box needs to be sized appropriately.

SQL 2012 :: 3 Node Cluster Runs With 2 Node Failures?

Jun 11, 2015

We are in the process of building a 3 node SQL Server Cluster (Server 2012/ SQL Server 2012), and we have configured the quorum so that all 3 nodes have a vote (no file share witness as we already have an odd number of nodes).

As I understand it, this should allow the cluster to run as long as 2 of the nodes remain online.

However, the validation report states that 2 node failures would be acceptable and, when we tested this by powering off two of the nodes, the cluster did indeed continue to run on a single node.

How Do You Determine The Active Node Inside A Stored Proc For An Active/passive 2-node Cluster?

Jan 16, 2008

I invoke xp_cmdshell proc from inside a stored procedure on a 2-node active/passive SQL 2005 SP2 Standard cluster. Depending on which server the xp_cmdshell gets executed on I need to pass different arguments in the shell command. I thought I could use host_name() function to get the runtime process server, however, I am finding that it's not behaving correctly. In one example I know my active node is server2, but the host_name() function is returning server1. The only thing that I could possible explain this is that the MSDTC cluster group is not always on the same active node as the SQL server group and in the case I am talking about the cluster groups are in this mode (differnet nodes). Does the xp_cmdshell get executed by the SQL active node or the MDTC active node? And what is the best way to find out which server is going to run my xp_cmdshell?



Perhaps another by product of this is that if I run select host_name() from the Studio Management query window i get different results depending on which server I am running the Studio Management on. On server1 I get server1 and on server 2 I get server 2, all the while server2 is the active node. I need a different function that will always let me determine the correct server that'll be running the xp_cmdshell...

Edit 2: I guess I could determine the running host inside the command shell itself, but I am curious to see if i can do it (cleaner) from SQL.

Subject: BCM Install Error - Logfile &&amp; SQL Path Path &&amp; MSSQL.1?

Apr 16, 2008

When trying to install Business Contact Manager (BCM) for Outlook 2007, the setup failed and I was refered to a log file in my Local Settings/Temp folder. The log actually says that Business Contact Manager was installed sucessfully! BCM is supposed to install SQL Express 2005 as an instance or as instance if SQL Express is already installed. There is an MSSMLBIZ instance in Services..

Who can I send the Log File to for analysis and the fix feedback?

When I first went into Computer Management and clicked on Services and Applications in the left panel, the error message appeared "Snap-in failed to intialize. Name: SQL Server Configuration Manager CLSID:{CA9F8727-31DF-41D2-975C-887D84903967} This message diappeared when I clicked on Services and Applications again. Under Services, there are 3 SQL services - one is an application that was uninstalled 3-4 weeks ago and I disabled this service. The other 2 are: SQL Server (MSSMLBIZ) and the other one is SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) When I tried to start either of the last 2, the message appeared: Services "Could not start the SQL Server (MSSMLBIZ) service on Local Computer. Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified. Under Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server/MSSGL.1 folder is mostly empty. So, it seems like the Path in the Registry is not valid and that nothing is being installed in the MSSQL.1 folder. If so, how do I fix this?

How do I get the BCM SQL instance to install and run properly? what do the messages in Services mean and how do I resolve these.

Thank you!

Master Database On Root Drive??

Apr 3, 2002

I have a 'need an opinion' question. I've always installed the system databases (master, msdb, model, tempdb) on the root drive (c:) with the sql application. Then I was thinking, the only things that really should be on the root drive is the sql app itself (and any other required apps). So...my question is, do y'all install the master, etc on a separate drive other than the root, ie d: or e:? The reason I ask is that if the tempdb database has alot of activity, and the database resides on the root drive, could it affect sql performance?

Just wondering. I just started working in a 'virgin' sql environment (setting up sql servers from scratch), and want to have sql installed in the best possible way for performance.

Thanks in advance for any info y'all can provide.

Root Element Is Missing Problem

Apr 22, 2008

Configuration: SQL Server 2005 Enterprise edition on Microsoft Cluster. Machines named Node1, Node2 and NodeV (Virtual Node). Best practices require SSRS be deployeed on an IIS6.0 server. Reporting services was installed on the Web1 machine and pointing back to the database on the NodeV platform. Everything appears to run fine in Reporting Services. However, when I use the ReportViewer control from within a webpage, the basic control appears along with the message "root element is missing". Using the same code, I point the ReportViewer control to a different server Web2 where Sql server standard, IIS and RS are installed and the report renders properly. What am I missing in the configuration of the Web1 box as far as IIS or SSRS are concerned?

How Can I Directly Include A Square Root In A SQL Query

Dec 17, 2006

I have an ASP.NET application where I need to filter the records returned from a SQL query using a calculated distance to a point that is set by the user.   To do this directly, I would need to include a square root of an expression in the SQL query.  It seems like I should be able to do this by writing my SQL query something like:
SELECT SQRT(expression ....) AS distance, column2, column3 ... FROM mytable WHERE distance < 50
Unfortunately, SQL queries apparently don't like the SQRT function.  I am using .NET 2.0 with VS2005 and a MS Access backend (that will soon be moved to SQL/Server).
As an alternate, maybe I can query the data into a temporary record set with a extra field for distance and then step my way through the temporary record set and replace the values in the distance field with a calculated distance.  Once the temporary record set is prepared, then I would delete the records that don't pass the distance requirement or otherwise hide them and bind the data to a gridview control.

How To Move Server Root Directory To Another Partition?

Apr 18, 2000

I want to move the SQL Server 7.0 root directory from C:MSSQL7 to D:MSSQL7 (same host). I see the startup parameters under server properties could be changed to point to the new location, but Master has the paths to all the databases recorded in sysdatabases table, so at least that would have to change, and sysdevices table points to files on C:. And maybe the NT registry points to some files there too. Anyway, is there some established method to move it? If that isn't practical, at least I would want to move TEMPDB ( perhaps by using the SP_DETACH and SP_ATTACH method ). My main database is already on D: so I do not have to move it. Any informed advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Remove ROOT Tags From SQL Task XML Results

Dec 19, 2007

Hi All,

I'm currently using an Execute SQL Task to return XML data from a query into an SSIS string variable. In my FOR XML clause in SQL I'm specifying a certain name for my root tag, called "Accounts". This works great in Management Studio, however, the Execute SQL Task appends a <ROOT> and </ROOT> tag to the start and end of the string, so now it looks like:

<ROOT><Accounts>...all my elements...</Accounts></ROOT>

I'd like to remove the ROOT tags so that the <Accounts> tags are actually the root for this doc. What would be the best way to remove the ROOT tags from the SSIS string variable?

My goal is to take the btb-date and store it in the same table I loaded the seperate nodes to. Currently I am loading the req-header, req-property-address, and req-borrowers.

This date will be static in that it will remain the same for every record. My goal is to read it in and store it along with each record. Hope someone can give me some help.
