SQL 2012 :: Second Delimiter And Converting

Nov 26, 2014

I have a PL/pgSQL Code like this:

[code=" CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION public.split_string(text, text)
LANGUAGE plpgsql
AS $function$
pos int;

[Code] ....

Its split a String with a delimiter. Like this

[code="select * from split_string('3.584731 60.739211,3.590472 60.738030,3.592740 60.736220', ' ');


My question is how i can save the first result in a temp_array (or table i dont know) so I can get the result and split up the results again with the delimiter ','.

SQL 2012 :: Converting From Table With Varbinary To Filetable

Feb 17, 2014

I have a very large database running in a production environment. The backup files are getting to be very difficult to manage. They are at 70gb as of now and growing at a rate of 10gb per month. This is due to document images being stored in the database in one table. I have read a little about a new feature in SQL Server 2012 called Filetable. Can we migrate to SQL Server 2012 and convert to the filetable structure, will this decrease the size of the backups? Would backup of the document images be taken care of by our nightly file system backups now?

SQL Server 2012 :: Converting XPath To FLWOR

Jun 9, 2014

I'm trying to go deeper into SQL Server's XML support. When looking at a recent forum post, I got curious to see if I could achieve the same result with XPath and FLOWR. Here's the data I'm working with:

create table #data (myXMLData xml)
insert into #data(myXMLData) values (
'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Product Index="e1e2c499-f9...etc...." ProductID="12" >
<Attribute Name="Paper...etc..." />

[Code] ....

Here's the working XPath query and results:

select data.mynodes.value('@Name', 'varchar(50)') Name
from #data
cross apply myXMLData.nodes('/order/Product/Drops/Drop[@Number="1"]/Area') data(mynodes)

[Code] .....

Here's my first attempt at a FLWOR expression. Note that doesn't produce the same results.

select myXmlData.query('
for $drop in /order/Product/Drops/Drop
for $Name in $drop/Area/@Name
where $drop/@Number=1
return data($Name)
from #data
43001PBOX 43001R001 43001R002 43023PBOX 43023R001 43023R002 43031PBOX 43031R001

How to build a FLOWR-based query that produces the same result as the pure XPath one?

SQL Server 2012 :: Differences In Rounding / Converting Strings?

Dec 9, 2013

difference between

SELECT ROUND ('6.465',2) --- result 6.46
SELECT ROUND (6.465,2) --- result 6.47

It's because you're relying on an implicit conversion from a string to a decimal data type which SQL server will do to 2 decimal places by default...


SELECT ROUND (CONVERT(DECIMAL(3,2),'6.465'),2) --- result 6.47 Now please explain this:
SELECT ROUND('0.285',2) -- 0.28
SELECT ROUND(0.285,2) -- 0.29
SELECT ROUND (CONVERT(DECIMAL(3,2),'0.285'),2) --- result 0.29 The string value does not seem to be converted to decimal with 2 decimal places.

MS is on the safe side with mentioning the last digit is always an estimate But because the result of the estimate is always the same, I would like to know:

* how is a string value exactly implicitly converted?

* how exactly does the estimation work, that in case of doubt rounds a value up or off?

SQL Server 2012 :: Conversion Failed When Converting Varchar Value

SQL Server 2012 :: Inconsistent Results When Converting To Time?

Jun 5, 2014

I have a lot of rows of hours, set up like this: 0745, 0800, 2200, 1145 and so on (varchar(5), for some reason).

These are converted into a smalldatetime like this:

CONVERT(smalldatetime, STUFF(timestarted, 3, 0, ':')) [this would give output like this - 1900-01-01 11:45:00]

This code has been in place for years...and we stick the date on later from another column.

But recently, it's started to fail for some rows, with "The conversion of a varchar data type to a smalldatetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value".

My assumption is that new data being added in is junk. If I query for these values and just list them (rather than adding a column to convert them also) that's fine, of course. I've checked all the stuffed (but not yet converted - so 11:45 rather than 1145) output to see if it ISDATE(), and it is. There are no times with hours > 23 or minutes greater than 59 either.

If I add the CONVERT in, we see the error message. But here's the oddity, if I place all of the rows into a holding table, and retry the conversion, there is no error. It's this last bit that is puzzling me. Plus I can't see any errors in the hours data that would cause a conversion problem.

I've put the whole of this into a cursor to try to trap the error rows too, but all processes fine. Why would it fail if NOT in a cursor?

SQL Server 2012 :: Converting Query Output To HTML Format

Mar 23, 2015

I am working on a code that will convert the query output into a html query output. That is the output of the query will be along with html tags so that we can save it as a html file.

The stored procedure that i have used is downloaded from symantec website and is working fine. Below is the code of that stored procedure.

/****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[sp_Table2HTML] Script Date: 12/21/2011 09:04:30 ******/
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_Table2HTML] (

[Code] ....

The code works fine and i am able to get the output with html tags. The problem occurs when i insert stylesheet in the code. I tried to enforce styles using a stylesheet for the table returned in my sql code, so that it will look good. below is the stylesheet code that i inserted between <head> and </head> tags.

<style type="text/css">table.gridtable { font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif; font-size:10px; color:#333333;border-width:1px; border-color: #666666; border-collapse: collapse; } table.gridtable td {border-width: 1px; padding: 8px; border-style: solid; border-color: #666666; background-color: #ffffff;}</style>

If I run the procedure without the style sheet code, it works fine. but when i run the procedure with style sheet code i am getting the below errors.

Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 98
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string '</table></body><'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 98
Incorrect syntax near '</table></body><'.

[Code] .....

I checked the code and i am not able to find what is the mistake. I tried changing the quotation mark but it didn't worked.

SQL Server 2012 :: Converting Large Excel Spreadsheet To Normalized Data

Aug 7, 2014

I have a large excel spreadsheet created by finance user that contains several decades worth of sales data.

Here is a small sample:

Guest Count
Unit ID1/2/2011 1/9/2011
3 0
7 0
8 0
90 0
151696 1202
222769 1914
232704 2110
250 0
282838 1882
331089 691
363581 3064
371469 1062

I need to get this data into an SQL table in the following form so I can use it to further manipulate the data and update several other tables. I am thinking that UNPIVOT or CROSS APPLY might be the way to go, but am not sure how to code it.

The desired output:

Unit IDDate Guest Count
31/2/2011 NULL
71/2/2011 NULL
81/2/2011 NULL
91/2/2011 0
151/2/2011 1696

and so on ......

The spreadsheet has 2900 columns and 3500 rows so performance is definitely a consideration as well.

SQL Server 2012 :: Determine Which Column Is Causing Error Converting Data Type Varchar To Numeric?

I'm moving data from one database to another (INSERT INTO ... SELECT ... FROM ....) and am encountering this error:

Error converting data type varchar to numeric.

My problem is that Line 6 is:

set @brn_pk = '0D4BDE66347C440F'

so that is obviously not the problem and my query has almost 200 columns. I can go through one by one and compare what column is int in my destination table and what is varchar in my source tables, but that could take quite a while. How I can work out what column is causing the problem?

Delimiter - Which One To Use?

Oct 4, 2004

Please tell me which delimiter to use. Criterion: 1) The delimiter should appear as if it were space in the Back end 2) while running reports it should not dampen the lay out 3) The delimiter should not be an enterable character

Ex: i tried with chr(10) but while running reports, the characters after the delimiter are shifted to new line.

The delimiter that i use, should not create such undesirable effects.

Thanks in Advance

Row Delimiter {LF} Is Ignored?

May 9, 2006


Im trying to import some data from a Flat File Source, where a row delimiter is {LF} and column separator is SPACE.

Data looks like this:
GI$0c2 T08b 1 1 20060508 000655 6 8 8 c0a81f1f 1 1 1 00A 3 24206816 3 24206816 1 1 3 59910000 001 1 3 14730050 0 25 F10 XX 317148-131136 loop TG_MRB 0 M027 1 3 0 20060508 000655 0 3 59910000 SIP

This is the first record that generates around 41 columns and sorts data as it should, but if the second record is smaller the row delimiter {LF} is ignored and put into one of the columns untill all 41 columns from previous record are filled. It seems to me that columns separator has the priority over the row delimiter which is very wrong. :). If there is a {LF} in the file that should mean that it needs to be in a new row as a new record. I try to keep this all in a SQL 2005 package without using any additional software, i know there might be a solution with the scripting component, but would like to see if theres someone with the similar solution before i start writing any scripts. (i dont like parsing strings with scripts from bulky files:))

i was on with DTS, dumping a flat file to SQL DB and i came across an error which says: "Too many columns...; found whitespaces.."

When I checked the row that caused this, I found out that entries with ""s are split into two columns possibly because the backslashes were read as tab delimiters..

I've tried other delimiters, but they do not seem to fit because most of the entries have them.

Please advise. Thanks!

How To Filter Out The Items Between The Delimiter ;?

May 4, 2004


Inside a column I have this result:
Record 1: Sales;Admins
Record 2: ;Sales;Admins
Record 3: Sales;
Record 4: Admins;

You can see the delimiter ";", it can be everywhere.

Now I want to delete "Sales".
Therefor I have to search where the "Sales" is. (records)
After that I want to delete the "Sales".

If I delete it the record may not have 2 or more delimiters after each other, like here:
Record 1: ;Admins (good, better is to remove the delimiter also)
Record 2: ;;Admins (bad)
Record 3: ;(good, better is to remove the delimiter also)
Record 4: Admins;

Can somebody help me how to build this query?
