Same Order Doesn't Work - Invalid Descriptor Index
Dec 28, 2005
I'm getting this "invalid descriptor index" exception while trying to fetch a record from the table.
The query is "select * from <tablename> where <columnname> = 'xyz'". The column name is correct and indeed a record with 'xyz' value exists. The record is getting fetched too...! But I'm having this particular error while trying to retrieve a couple of fields with rs.getString().
The order of columns in the table is same as the order in which I'm retrieving them. And I'm not facing any problem retrieving another field which has width of 200 characters.
I'll be very grateful indeed if someone can help me out of this particular problem...
I'm testing db to db transactional replication on a box ( all on the same box ) and the distribution agent fails with the above error. I know it's something to do with the physical server as this test works on other servers fine. SQL2k Ent sp4 on w2k3 ent sp1. ( clustered )
Server and Agent accounts are in local admins, tried push and pull, named and anonymous. Replication also fails if I use the default snapshot location. I suspect policy restrictions ( maybe on the sql service accounts ) Any pointers would be helpful - there are no errors other than above, sadly.
We recently upgraded a SQL 7.0 SP2 database to SQL 2000 SP2. The web server that connects to both databases (we have 2 up that we can switch back and forth) is Win2K with the SQL Server ODBC driver of 2000.80.194.00 (I'm thinking this came w/ W2K) But I think I installed the 7.0 client connectivity on the web server.
I have a few questions: 1. Any reason why this would happen with the SQL upgrade? 2. What is the ideal situation for client/server ODBC drivers / MDAC client.. If I have a SQL 2000 SP2 server do I install SQL 2000 client on the web server and also the service pack on the web server?
Thanks and please ask if you need more info.. -Kelly
We've run into a problem using SQLDescribeParam with the SQL Server ODBC driver (or SQL Native Client driver). The basic sequence that shows the issue is this:
SQLPrepare(select * from foo where col1 = ?) SQLDescribeParam(1) SQLBindParameter(1) SQLFreeStmt(SQL_CLOSE) /* NOT RESET_PARAMS */ SQLPrepare(select * from foo where col1 = ? and col2 = ?) SQLDescribeParam(1) SQLDescribeParam(2) ==> returns "Invalid Descriptor Index"
If I leave out the SQLBindParameter, then the last SQLDescribeParam works just fine. Also, if I make the SQLFreeStmt use SQL_RESET_PARAMS then it works fine. However, I don't have direct control over the ODBC code being used, so I wanted to see if this known behavior. I've tried a couple of other ODBC drivers that support SQLDescribeParam and they work fine with the above sequence.
Can someone tell me why SQL seems to ignore my order by clause?I tried to run through the debugger, but the debugger stops at theselect statement line and then returns the result set; so, I have noidea how it is evaluating the order by clause.THANK YOU!CREATE proc sprAllBooks@SortAscend varchar(4),@SortColumn varchar(10)asIf @SortAscend = 'DESC'Select titles.title_id, title, au_lname, au_fname,Convert(varchar(12), pubdate, 101) as PubDatefrom authorsinner jointitleauthoronauthors.au_id = titleauthor.au_idinner jointitlesontitleauthor.title_id = Titles.title_idORDER BY au_lnameCASE @SortColumn WHEN 'title' THEN title END,CASE @SortColumn WHEN 'au_lname' THEN au_lname END,CASE @SortColumn WHEN 'PubDate' THEN PubDate ENDDESCELSESelect titles.title_id, title, au_lname, au_fname,Convert(varchar(12), pubdate, 101) as PubDatefrom authorsinner jointitleauthoronauthors.au_id = titleauthor.au_idinner jointitlesontitleauthor.title_id = Titles.title_idORDER BYCASE @SortColumn WHEN 'title' THEN title END,CASE @SortColumn WHEN 'au_lname' THEN au_lname END,CASE @SortColumn WHEN 'PubDate' THEN PubDate ENDGO
Hello all,The followinq qurey returns sometimes values of null to some of this columns, byK,byT,byD. the column F wil not contains any nulls, and 0 will be populated in it at any case of .Now, the problem is that when sorting out F the sort will not work when there is null parameters in byK because teh fact that a 0 values is greater then NULL value, and the sort of F will not take in considiration. So I guess the question is how can I sort NULL values and 0 values to be the same weight in the sort by command? SELECT A.gym_id as gym,s_id, week, gym_name, boxer, league, sum(points) points,sum(byK)as byK, sum(byT) as byT,sum(byPoints) as byPoints , sum(byD) as byD, count(C.gym) as F FROM A inner JOIN B ON A.gym_id = B.gym_id left JOIN C ON A.gym_id = C.gym WHERE (B.l_id = ?text group by A.gym_id order by points DESC,byK DESC,byT DESC, byPoints DESC, byD DESC,F ASC
I have created view by jaoining two table and have order by clause.
The sql generated is as follows
SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT dbo.UWYearDetail.*, dbo.UWYearGroup.* FROM dbo.UWYearDetail INNER JOIN dbo.UWYearGroup ON dbo.UWYearDetail.UWYearGroupId = dbo.UWYearGroup.UWYearGroupId ORDER BY dbo.UWYearDetail.PlanVersionId, dbo.UWYearGroup.UWFinancialPlanSegmentId, dbo.UWYearGroup.UWYear, dbo.UWYearGroup.MandDFlag, dbo.UWYearGroup.EarningsMethod, dbo.UWYearGroup.EffectiveMonth
If I run sql the results are displayed in proper order but the view only order by first item in order by clause.
Has somebody experience same thing? How to fix this issue?
I have a clustered index that consists of 3 int columns in this order: DateKey, LocationKey, ItemKey (there are many other columns in this data warehouse table such as quantities, prices, etc.).
Now I want to add a non-clustered index on just one of the other columns, say LocationKey, like this: CREATE INDEX IX_test on TableName (LocationKey)
I understand that the clustered index keys will also be added as key columns to any NC indexes. So, in this case the NC index will also get the other two columns from the clustered index added as key columns. But, in what order will they be added?
Will the resulting index keys on this new NC index effectively be:
LocationKey, DateKey, ItemKey OR LocationKey, ItemKey, DateKey
Do the clustering keys get added to a NC index in the same order as they are defined in the clustered index?
I'm pretty new to DTS, so forgive me if this is basic. I created a simple DTS package to run a query and export it to a text file. I can execute the package fine from my workstation through EM, but when I try to execute the job to run the package I get this error: Error = -2147467259 (80004005) Error string: Error opening datafile: Access is denied.
I think that maybe SQL Agent doesn't have the right permissions to write to that network drive. What should the permissions be?
This is probably very simple, but I can't get passed this problem.
I have a report in MS Access that uses info generated by a query. One of the text fields in the query contains either the word 'Select' or the name of a course. The report should display a space if the value is 'Select', or the actual value of the field in any other case. The field can never contain a null value.
I've used: =IIf([optVoc1]="Select","",[optVoc1]) in the text box on the report, but this only returns #error regardless of the actual content of the field.
I create and schedule a SQL job to run every minute to update a table base on certain condition but it doesn't work. Job history says successful every time but the table doesn't get updated.
However if I move it to Query Analyzer and run it under dba, it will work. Thinking that it may have to do with the user the job run as, I then change run as user from self to dba. But still SQL job won't update my table.
Anything about user permission or security that I can check? Or it there any other possibility?
This is the autogenerated code from the SelectCommand of my DataAdapter, except the red text. This DataAdapter is used to fill a DataGrid. What I want to do, is to calculate the total memory (4 slots) / PC.This code makes the sum of all memory of all PC's together.I'm not sure if the group by clause is needed here ...Me.OleDbSelectCommand1.CommandText = "SELECT PC.ID, PC.Nummer, PC.Netwerknaam, Case_Type.Type AS Case_Type, Processor_T" & _"ype.Type AS Processor_Type, Processor_Snelheid.Snelheid AS Processor_Snelheid, " & _"(SELECT SUM(Memory) FROM Memory, PC, RAM WHERE RAM.PcID = PC.ID AND RAM.GrootteID = Memory.ID)" & _"AS Memory, OS.Naam AS OS, OS_SP.Nummer AS OS_SP, Gebru" & _"iker.Naam AS Gebruiker_Naam, Status.Status, PC.Tagged FROM (Status RIGHT OUTER J" & _"OIN ((((((((PC LEFT OUTER JOIN (RAM LEFT OUTER JOIN Geheugen ON RAM.GrootteID = " & _"Geheugen.ID) ON PC.ID = RAM.PcID) LEFT OUTER JOIN Case_Type ON PC.Case_TypeID = " & _"Case_Type.ID) LEFT OUTER JOIN OS_SP ON PC.OS_SpID = OS_SP.ID) LEFT OUTER JOIN Ge" & _"bruiker ON PC.GebruikersID = Gebruiker.ID) LEFT OUTER JOIN Processor_Snelheid ON" & _" PC.Processor_SnelheidID = Processor_Snelheid.ID) LEFT OUTER JOIN Processor_Type" & _" ON PC.Processor_TypeID = Processor_Type.ID) LEFT OUTER JOIN OS ON PC.OsID = OS." & _"ID) LEFT OUTER JOIN Switchbox_Details ON PC.ID = Switchbox_Details.PcID) ON Stat" & _"us.ID = PC.StatusID) GROUP BY PC.ID, PC.Nummer, PC.Netwerknaam, Case_Type.Type, " & _"Processor_Type.Type, Processor_Snelheid.Snelheid, OS.Naam, OS_" & _"SP.Nummer, Gebruiker.Naam, Status.Status, PC.Tagged"I would like to know how to calculate the total memory for each separate PC.Hope you can help me.
I try to copy a DB from one server to another. On the target server an older version of the DB has been deleted and I now try to attach the new version using "sp_attach_db DBname, Filelocation", but I always get an error "Device Activation error. The physical file name 'D:mssql7dataAgency_log.ldf' may be incorrect" "Database 'Agency' cannot be Created"
To me it seems that the database is looking for the log files (now deleted). I've tried forcing a new log file I created using the same locations for the mdfs. I've tried using create a new database and replace the mdf file, but nothing works.

I'm combining first name, last name, middle name, and an ID number together into an alias. Then I need to match that alias with a variable passed to the page (its a search results page). The problem is it claims that there is no table with the name of my alias. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
A mockup of the SQL looks like this:
SELECT UserID, Last_Name + ', ' + First_Name + ' ' + Middle_Name + '.' AS name FROM Table WHERE name LIKE 'variable%'
Everything looks right with the results, if I take out the WHERE clause it has name displayed properly and joined together with the rest of the data in the results properly.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided!
I have a query that doesn't work when i use 4 name convention instead of a openquery. The msg is below. Anyone know what is going on? Both queries are the same but one doesn't work.

hi all, i made a stored procedure that uses the sp_send_dbmail to send mails. SQL server dislays the message "mail queued" but nothing is recieved
here is the code of the stored procedure i made EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @profile_name = 'Exams', @recipients = 'email@example.com', @Body_format = 'HTML' , @subject = 'Room Preparation' , @body='hi there'; so can anyone help with this issue thanks in advance
I have a drill through that passes four parameters. Three are passed from the current selections in that reports parameters and the fourth needs to be the customer name they click on in the body of the report so it's passed as Fields!fieldname.Value. When I click on the customer name, the drillthough fires but the report simply doesn't load. If I remove the parameter from the field clicked on and just pass the three parameters, it goes to the drill through correctly and that fourth parameter just sets to the default for that parameter in that report.
I can then simply check that parameter and select the value from the list that is exactly the same as the value I was attempting to pass it in the drill through and report refreshes correctly.
Whatever it is, is something in the manner that the value is passed in the drill through specifically.
Hello, I've rescued a MDF and LDF files off a client's old server, and I wanted to attach it to our own, but I can't seem to get the command to work, basically I have these two files, which I've dropped on our server:
So when I do a SP_ATTACH_SINGLE_FILE_DB 'somedb','C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQLDataMYCLIENTNAME_Data.MDF'
It says the LDF path my be incorrect, and that there's two other files that are missing: MYCLIENTNAME_LOG (no extension) extra_log (no extension)
I thought the whole point of the command is that you only need a single file? Its very hard to go back to the client's old server and try to find these two files, and it doesn't really matter if we loose a bit of data, so long as the bulk of it is available.
Update: I think I've found the answer...its not possible to do this, it really needs all the log files. Any workarounds?
I have been looking at this for over a day now. I cannot see why this procedure does not work, its so simple. No matter what happens it always returns 0. If it locates a record, it doesnt update it, yet it still returns 0. It should not be returning 0 if its not updating so I can't figure out why it does. Why does this always return 0? [pre]Create Procedure CreateNewCategory @title nvarchar(100), @description nvarchar(1000), @displayOrder intAS DECLARE @Result as int IF EXISTS(SELECT categoryTitle FROM categories WHERE categoryTitle = @title) BEGIN SELECT @Result = 1 ENDELSE BEGIN INSERT INTO categories(categoryTitle, categoryDescription, displayOrder) VALUES(@title, @description, @displayOrder) /* If no error was encountered, 0 will be returned. */ SELECT @Result = @@Error ENDGO[/pre] Thanks!
Since I have to go across the network, I'm trying to use the UNC. However, this won't even work when I'm using the UNC to point to the server on which this is run. I'm trying to restore a single table on 6.5. What is the obvious piece that I'm missing?
LOAD TABLE address FROM DISK = 'd:MSSQLackupDBBackup.DAT' WITH source='address'
LOAD TABLE address FROM DISK = 'server1d$MSSQLackupDBBackup.DAT' WITH source='address'
Hello, I upgraded to Beta 3 and now mail isn`t working(I hate mail!) I found 2 error messages. One when trying to add an operators email id and the other when I try to "test" mail under server properties.
- Unable to start a mail session on the server with this mail profile.
- no mail profile defined.
The account that I am using is used for all our SQL Servers and was working on this server on 6.5 before the upgrade. I have checked the new SQLServerAgent service and it`s using the correct account.
Any help would be appreciated.
And to all you that are off for a long Labor Day weekend...I`m jealous!
