Same Order Doesn't Work - Invalid Descriptor Index

Hi all,

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...

Cheers, mates!

SQLDescribeParam With Subselect: Invalid Parameter Number/Invalid Descriptor Index

I've got the following query:

, zA."TEXT" AS fA_B
, (
  FROM Test."Booking" AS zC
  ) AS fA_E
FROM  Test."Stack" AS zA
WHERE zA."ID" = ?

With this query I call:
- SQLPrepare -> SQL_SUCCESS=0
- SQLNumParams -> SQL_SUCCESS=0, pcpar = 1
- SQLDescribeParam( 1 ) -> SQL_ERROR=-1, [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Invalid parameter number", "[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Invalid Descriptor Index"

Is there a problem with this calling sequence or this query? Or is this a problem of SQL Server?

Invalid Descriptor Index Error
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.

Invalid Descriptor Index (and ODBC Questions)
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..

Invalid Descriptor Index Calling SQLGetData
In previous versions of MSSQL and on every other SQL engine I've tried the following pseudo-code works.


SQLExecDirect('select employeeid, photo, notes from employees where employeeid = 1')


SQLGetData(for column 3)

SQLGetData(for column 2)

With the Native Client I get an error 07009 "[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Invalid Descriptor Index"

Is this a bug in the Native Client or am I making an incorrect assumption that I can get data in any order?

SQLDescribeParam Returning &&"Invalid Descriptor Index&&"
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 = ?)
SQLPrepare(select * from foo where col1 = ? and col2 = ?)
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.

Order By Doesn't Work Properly When There Are Null Values?
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

Order By Clause In View Doesn't Order.
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?

DTS Doesn't Work Through Job
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?

IIF Doesn't Work
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:
in the text box on the report, but this only returns #error regardless of the actual content of the field.

What am I doing wrong?

Sql Job Doesn't Work
Hi all,

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?

SET Doesn't Work
When I  try to install the problem I get the following error.

The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server Manually."

The log tells me nothing useful. I can't start the thing manually because after clicking cancel on the error message, the installer proceeds to roll back the installation.

How do I fix this problem?

WHERE With An Alias Doesn't Work
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!

SELECT CardID as CardID, [dbo].[cc2_Helper](CardNumber, CardID) as CardNumber FROM [dbo].[cc2]

This doesn't:

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[cc2_Helper2]( @SecretData VARBINARY(256), @vBin VARBINARY )





RETURN convert( NVARCHAR(50), decryptbykeyautocert( cert_id( 'cert_SecretTable_SecretData_Key' ), null, @SecretData, 1, @vBin ) )

GRANT SELECT ON [dbo].[cc2View3] TO [user_low_priv]


WHY?  Note that the conversion to VARBINARY was moved from the call to DecryptByKeyAutoCert to the call to cc2_Helper2.  That is the only change...


But if I declare @vBin as VARBINARY(256) then it does work!  Guess I'm a little confused on declaring vars...anyone can elucidate?  Thanks.

Drill Through Doesn't Work.
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.

Any ideas?

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:

C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQLDataMYCLIENTNAME_Data.MDF
C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQLDataMYCLIENTNAME_Data.LDF

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?

SqlDataSource1.EnableCaching - Doesn't Work Right
I have a gridview that appears when I click the GO button.I set SqlDataSource1.EnableCaching=False when I hit the GO button.I set the datasourceid of the gridview.On the Sorting event of the gridview I set the datasourceid of the gridview.I set SqlDataSource1.EnableCaching=True, because I don't want to hit the db every time when I click on the links to have it sort.When hit the GO button again, it refreshes the sqldatasource and give me the new records.  BUT when I click on the columns to sort, it goes back to the old records.  It doesn't give me the new records.Seems like once caching is set to True it remains True when sorting.How do I reset the Caching back to NOTHING.  After SqlDataSource1.EnableCaching=False, is there another line I can put it to clean out the cache?

UNION Statement Doesn't Work
Hi,I have a database stored in MS SQL 2000 and an application written inVB5, which connects the database via JET/ODBC.I have a problem with the UNION statement.When I run a simple query like:"SELECT field1 FROM table1 UNION SELECT field2 FROM table2"I get the following error:"Runtime error 3078 - The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find theinput table or query 'select field1 from table1'. Make sure it existsand that its name is spelled correctly."I can run the queries separately "SELECT field1 FROM table1" and "SELECTfield1 FROM table2", so that I'm sure table and field names are correctand I have permission to access them.Both field1 and field2 are the same type (int).If I run the query in MS SQL Query Analyzer, it works fine.It doesn't work only when I run it from VB/JET/ODBC.Has anyone already had this kind of problem?Any help will be highly appreciated!Thank you so much for the attention.--Posted via

A Simple Trigger That Doesn't Work
Hi all, I have a problem with this trigger. It seams to be very simple, but it doesn't work...

I created a trigger on a table and I would want that this one updates a field of a table on a diffrent DB (Intranet). When I test it normally (a real situation), it doesn't work, but when I do an explicit update ("UPDATE AccesCard SET LastMove = getDate();" by example) it works.

If anyone could help me, I would appreciate.

NB: Is there a special way, in a trigger, to update a table when the table to update is on another BD ?


This is the trigger:

ON AccesCard

DECLARE @noPerson int


UPDATE Intranet.dbo._Users SET Intranet.dbo._Users.status = 1 WHERE personNo = @noPerson;

SQL Server 2000: TCP/IP Doesn't Seem To Work
I have the following situation: A webserver in a DMZ which connects to a DbServer in a Domain.

but when I try to make a ODBC connection on the webserver I get the well-known "Server does not exist or access denied" error.

I tried using IP address as well as FQDN. I turned off the firewall in the router (I'm able to access shares and what not from the webserver so the firewall is really turned off).

I think however i have narrowed down the problem to the TCP/IP connection of the SQL Server. Normally when you try from a command prompt
"telnet dbserver 1433" you get a connection. But when I try this to the specific DbServer I get an "unable to connect" error. Even when I try it on the dbserver itself (so telnet localhost 1433). This should work always?

In the network configuration of the sql server the Named Piped as well as the TCP/IP protocols are enabled. TCP/IP is offcourse configured on port 1433.

How can I fix this problem?

An Ugly Self-join (oh, That Doesn't Work!!)
Hi again, I am again, trying to work on my CloseIndex thang again...Same subject, different tack...

Basically, I have two tables...for the sake of simplicity, let me define them as:

PortfolioID int
CreateDate smalldatetime
CloseIndex float

PortfolioID int
CreateDate smalldatetime
PrevDate smalldatetime
DailyPerChg float

UPDATE PortfolioIndex
SET CloseIndex = CASE
WHEN PPI.CloseIndex IS NULL THEN 100.00
ELSE (PPI.CloseIndex + (PPI.CloseIndex * PP.DailyPerChg / 100))
FROM PortfolioIndex AS P INNER JOIN PortfolioIndex AS PPI on (P.PortfolioID = PPI.PortfolioID), PortfolioPerformance AS PP
WHERE (P.PortfolioID = PP.PortfolioID) AND
((P.CreateDate = PP.CreateDate) AND
(P.CreateDate = @CreateDate) AND
(PPI.CreateDate = PP.PrevDate))

What I am trying to do is...get the previous day's portfolioIndex row's CloseIndex and create a new one for today's row.

As ugly as it is, it works when I execute it in the SQL Query Analyzer, but when I try to create the stored procedure, the syntax check complains that the PortfolioIndex reference at the UPDATE... part is AMBIGUOUS...yet when I define it in the SP as P.PortfolioIndex, it fails at run time saying there is no object named P.PortfolioIndex (well, of course there isn't!).

How can I make this work (and if possible, make it prettier too! *L* ;) )

Truncating Logs Doesn`t Work
Hi everyone...

Using SQL Server 6.5 Enterprise Manager, I truncated the log with no success. The availability of the log is the same even after I click on the Recalculate button...Sometime if I click on the Truncate button, it goes down to zero.The database has "trun. log on checkpoint" option. Both the database and the log are in different devices. In the device view for the log, it shows a negative number and I cannot change it..I have applied Service pack 4 for SQL server already..and it still doesn`t work. Have anyone seen this?

Any suggestion is appreciated....
