SQL Server 2008 :: How To Convert Text To Date

May 11, 2015

Why this won't work. POST_DT is nvarchar(50). I know it should be datetime but, I have no control over it. That's why I'm creating a temp table. But, I want to only insert the most recent invoice. There is code to create test data at the end.

create table #FSC589
GRP__2 char(1),
INV_NUM char(8),
MRN varchar(10),
POST_DT datetime

[Code] .....

Convert Text Data To Date Format

Nov 13, 2013

I've got a field I'm trying to convert into a date format as it currently sits as a text field. The date setup is of the format DD/MM/YYYY. Some of the fields are NULL, however for the sake of filling in gaps I've just set the nulls to '01-01-1905'.

I've tried to use CAST to change the data into a readable format for SQL Server however I tend to get one of two messages:

Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

SQL Server 2008 :: Finding Beginning Date From Multiple Lines Of Date Ranges?

Mar 20, 2015

I am trying to find a beginning date from multiple date ranges, for example:

RowNumberidBegin dtEnd Dt

For this id: 0793319, my beginning date is 2011-09-06

408203492011-12-122012-07-03--not a continuous date range

For this id: 0793319, my beginning date is 2012-09-04


For this id: 0820349, my beginning date is 2014-09-02

To find continuous date, you look at the beginning date in row 1 and end date in row 2, then if no break in dates, row 2 beginning date to row 3 end date, if no break continue until last date There could multiple dates up to 12 which I have to check for "no break" in dates, if break, display beginning date of last continuous date.

Flat File Text Date Conversion To SQL Server Date Comments And Suggestions

Mar 12, 2008

Basically the above is a very common requirement, please comment on my solution which I've arrived at by searching through the web; -

In summary I have used 3 SSIS components these are "Flat File Source", "Derived Column" and "SQL Server Destination".

1) File Connections Manager Editor
1.1) Within File Connections Manager Editor; -
Name the data type e.g. "INTERCHANGE_NET_APP_DATE_SRC"
and assign a type to the data type e.g. string[DT_STR]

1.2) Click on the Preview button to ensure the expected text is assigned to the expected data type.

2) Derived Column Transformation Editor
2.1) Assign Derived Column Name, e.g.

2.2) Select <add as new column> within Derived Column.

2.3) Enter the conversion Expression, e.g. ; -

Since the above conversion is such a common task I suggest that Service Pack 3 of SQL Server 2005 delivers the following functionality; -


2.4) Select "database timestamp [DT_DBTIMESTAMP] " as Data Type.

2.5) Within the Mappings tab of the SQL Destination Editor have; -
Destination Column as INTERCHANGE_NET_APP_DATE.

Please comment on the above, I will then pass on my suggestion to Microsoft.

Thanks in advance,

The result expected is

"A full-text search key must be a unique, non-nullable, single-column index which is not offline, is not defined on a non-deterministic or imprecise nonpersisted computed column, does not have a filter, and has maximum size of 900 bytes. Choose another index for the full-text key."

SQL Server 2008 :: Stored Procedure Text String Replace

Apr 16, 2015

We have a legacy database that have hundreds of stored procedures.

The previous programmar uses a string like servername.databasename.dbo.tablename in the stored procedures.
We now have migrated the database to a new server. The old server is either needed to be replaced by the new server name, or remove it.

I don't know why he used servername as part of the fully qualified name, we don't use linked servers. So I think better removing the servername in all the stored procedures.

I know I can do a generate script, and replace the text and then use alter procedure to recreate all the stored procedures. But since hundreds of them, is there a programmatically way to replace them?

SQL Server 2008 :: Speed Up Text Search In Large Result Set?

The records with entries like "ResultID=5" are the ones I'm trying to filter for.

The problem I have is that the query takes way too long to run. The TempLogin table has around 200 K records and the TempSearch table has around 80 K records.

SQL Server 2008 :: Get Max And Min Date Corresponding Values

1 | 10 |2014-11-06 |2009-11-06 | 100

2 | 20 |2007-07-11 |2007-07-17 | 104


Id | Deptno | edate | refid | refid1
1 | 10 | 2014-11-06 | 201 | 204
1 | 10 | 2014-12-13 | 204 | 202
1 | 10 | 2014-12-12 | 207 | 124
1 | 10 | 2003-05-04 | 105 | 103
2 | 20 | 2007-07-14 | 102 | 106

I am trying to combine these two tables into the output below:

Id | Deptno | locid | current_refid | current_refid1 | last_refid | last_refid1
1 | 10 | 101 | 201 | 204 | 204 |202
2 | 20 | 104 | 102 | 106 | 102 |106

The tables share the common columns id and deptno. To get the above result, the emp1.edate must be between emp.sdate and emp.edate.

If that condition is met, we need to retrieve the refid and refid1 values corresponding to the lowest edate as last_refid and last_refid1. Then we need the refid and refid1 values corresponding to the emp1.edate between emp.stdate and emp.edate to be retrieved as the current_refid and current_ refid1.

select a.id,a.deptno,a.locid,b.refid,b.refid1
