SQL Server 2008 :: String Break Into First Rows And Then Columns Based On Special Characters?

Jul 1, 2015

Part 1: When there is ~ (tilde) and has any value after it then it goes into a new row and duplicating the other columns like the facility in the screenshot attached and new column having the sequence.

Part 2: When there is ^ (Caret) its a new column irrespective of a value present or not

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Equipment](
[Notes] [TEXT] NULL,
[Facility] [VARCHAR](50) NULL)
INSERT INTO [dbo].[Equipment] ([EQU] ,[Notes] ,[Facility])
SELECT '1001','BET I^BOBBETT,DAN^1.0^REGULAR^22.09^22.090~BET II^^^REGULAR^23.56^0~','USA' union
SELECT '998','BET I^JONES, ALANA^0.50^REGULAR^22.09^11.0450~BET II^^^REGULAR^23.56^0~','Canada' UNION
select '55','BET I^SLADE,ADAM F.^1.5^REGULAR^27.65^41.475~','USA'
SELECT * FROM dbo.Equipment

I created the table in excel and attached the screenshot for a clear picture as to what is required. I use text to Columns in excel to achieve this not sure if there is anything similar in sql.

Reporting Services :: Row Group Total Broken Down Into Columns Based On Field Value

Sep 25, 2015

In report builder 3.0 I have row groups. I want a total at the end of each row but I want the total to be broken down by 3 columns based on 3 possible values of a field in the dataset. The report expands as the date range entered is increased. I want the total of clinic id + service id + program id + protocol id + appointment date but I want the total column to be broken down by appts that have shown or not shown or canceled.  

See screenshots below for seeing how I have it configured. Is this possible? I have tried every combination of possibilities but I keep getting the row total in each of the 3 columns comprised of the total column.


The results look like: 

The last Total column displays the entire row count NOT separated by the show, no show, and cancel status'.   I have tried filters and different expressions but keep getting the same output. Is this even possible?

SQL Server 2008 :: Fill Factor And SSD Based SAN?

Jun 14, 2015

I am about to rebuild all my indexes on a database that is very heavily fragmented. In looking at the report, seems that 80% or more tables are 90%+ fragmented.

My understanding is that fill value value is used for performance reasons. Our shiny new backend SAN is 100% SSD. If solid state can provide a sub-millisecond response, is fill factor still necessary at the cost of additional space being used used?

SQL Server 2008 :: Change Tracking On Table?

Jun 8, 2015

best way to track changes for a very pesky table.We pull down a table from an Oracle database (via linked server) into our SQL Server on a daily basis. The data in this table is just truncated and reloaded daily. There is no "history" kept in the oracle database and values are not being "updated" its just dropped and repopulated.

So, I have toyed around with CDC and even creating my own custom auditing method but I can't come up with a reasonable solution that doesn't involve a massive audit table that doesn't provide much useful info.

For example, there are two date fields in the table that my customer wishes to have history tracked for. Every day, this table is truncated and reloaded - however those dates may stay the same for many many many months. If I turn on CDC, I will get tons of audit records for a delete and an insert every day but the values for the two date fields may not have even changed.

The table has tons of fields in it but I only care about the 2 date fields for history purposes.Here is a snippet of the table (I took out all the additional fields in the table and just left the two date fields that need to be tracked):

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Fake_Name](
[lin] [char](6) NOT NULL,
[boip_no] [char](6) NOT NULL,
[dt_tc] [varchar](25) NULL,

[Code] .....

method to track changes to this table with it being truncated every day?

SQL Server 2008 :: Query To Select Every 2 Rows Based On A Date?

Sep 6, 2015

I have a table like the following (with much more data, but the concept is the same) with Dates and Actions for People and a column called Action with beginning Dates and end dates.

(I attached a picture because I could not figure out how to Format it)

begin Date end Date Name

begin 2014-10-15 end 2014-10-31 phil
begin 2014-09-18 end 2014-09-30 phil
begin 2014-08-21 end 2014-08-23 John

I need the query to be like this. The idea is to have the query grab the next 'END' not all Ends, which my attempts have done i.e. I get not just the closest end to the begin date, but ALL Ends with the same Person.

I Need it to look like this:

begin Date end Date Name

begin 2014-10-15 end 2014-10-31 phil
begin 2014-09-18 end 2014-09-30 phil
begin 2014-08-21 end 2014-08-23 John

There can be different People so the query Needs to return the beginning and end rows for the Person in sequential order.I can't figure out how to select only the 'next' end. My query always gets 'end' values that have a 'begin'. I

SQL Server 2008 :: Update Incoming Rows Based On Percentage Calculation

ProdName Amount TranType
P1 100 A
P1 100 S
P2 200 A
P2 205 S

In case the ProdName is same, and Amount = or (within +/- 5%) of Amount, I have to update the TranType column as IN/OUT respectively as shown below in the tables.

I am okay with using 2 different tables if needed as in the records comes in one table and then i can reference that table to upload the values in another.

ProdName Amount TranType
P1 100 IN
P1 100 OUT
P2 200 IN
P2 205 OUT

The order of the records coming in can be different order, they need not be subsequent.

SQL Server 2008 :: Does Change Data Capture Require A Table Have Primary Key

Jan 13, 2013

Or can it record before and after column changes based on the LSN only?

An extract from a file based legacy accounting system is performed every night. The system does not have a primary key because transactions are managed through program code. (the more things change...). The extract is copied to text in Unix and FTP'd to Windows, where the file is loaded into SQL Server by kill & fill. Because of the expense of modifying the source system, there is enormous inertia/resistance to injecting a primary key at the source, so kill & fill it stays.

In reading about Change Data Capture, it seemed to me that column level insert update and delete are stored in tables that remember the before and after content of each column tracked. In my reading I have seen many references to the LSN to decide when and what to record as changed, but I have not seen any refereference to the necessity of a primary key for Change Data Capture to work. This is in contrast to replication, where the requirement for the existence of a primary key is made plain.

Is it possible to use Change Data Capture against a table without a primary key? How to use it to change the extract from kill and fill to incremental.

SQL Server 2008 :: Database In Single-user Mode / How To Change It Programmatically

Mar 10, 2015

use master
alter database test
set single_user
with rollback immediate


Yes, it shows one record, but the database name is master, not test. And indeed, I run it from the context of master. Also tried sp_who, sp_who2, sys.dm_exec_requests - nothing works. For dm_exec_requests it shows nothing because it does not run at the current moment.Any other solutions to catch this SPID with a script?

SQL Server 2012 :: Inserting New Columns Based On Condition

Feb 25, 2014

I have a very simple query like the following…

SELECT table2.column_code2,
FROM database_001.table2 table1 LFET OUTER JOIN database_001.table2 table1 on (table2.column_code1 = table1.column_code1)

From this query, its returning me a result set of something like below:

column_code1 column_description1 column_code2 column_description2


Now, on the above query I want to insert three extra columns with the name (status, location and contact) where the results in the extra three columns would be based on the conditions I want to define in the query based on the above results…

Something for example (I am not trying to write a condition: my question is how to write it),

if column_code1 = RO1 and column_description2 = PDF/ECOPY on status column it should return a value ‘ONLINE’ & on location column it should return ‘WEB’ and on contact column it should write ‘BOB’.

Also, if column_code1 = RO5 and column_description1 = JOURNAL on status column it should return a value ‘ON PRESS FOR PRINT’ & on location column it should return ‘S.R STREET, LONDON’ and on contact column it should write ‘SMITH’ like below result…so the final output should be the top four columns and the extra three columns…

See the attachment for better formatting...

SQL Server 2008 :: Stored Procedure Returning Different Datasets Based On Input Variable

As you can see, the output depends on the given report type. I've personally never done this, but that's more because it's the way I learned as opposed to any hard facts to support it.

By extracting the year, I can do a group by and have total hours for each year.

Currently, I have it working by splitting the value into year and week and then looping through each year and week, so I can assign the totals to the corresponding FY.select sum(hours) as total, yearweek from tablename group by yearweek...Then I loop through using C#.I can return the FY using an actual date,how to do it for year-week format for any given year.

SQL Server 2012 :: Updating A Field Based On Result Set

Feb 21, 2014

I am trying to update records based on the results of a query with a subquery.

The result set being produced shows the record of an item number. This result produces the correct ItemNo which I need to update. The field I am looking to update is an integer named Block.

When I run the update statement all records are updated and not the result set when I run the query by itself.

Below you will find the code I am running:

create table #Items
ItemNovarchar (50),
SearchNo varchar (50),
Historical int,
Blocked int

[Code] ....

Below is the code I am using in an attempt to update the block column but it updates all records and not the ones which I need to have the Blocked field set to 1.

Update #items set Blocked = 1
Where Exists

[Code] ...

Why is the update changing each record? How can I change the update to choose the correct records?
