TOUGH INSERT: Copy Sale Record/Line Items For &"Duplicate&" Record

I have a client who needs to copy an existing sale. The problem is
the Sale is made up of three tables: Sale, SaleEquipment, SaleParts.
Each sale can have multiple pieces of equipment with corresponding
parts, or parts without equipment. My problem in copying is when I go
to copy the parts, how do I get the NEW sale equipment ids updated
correctly on their corresponding parts?

I can provide more information if necessary.
Thank you!!

How To Create An Copy Of A Certain Record Except One Specific Column That Must Be Different && Insert The New Record In The Table
I have a table with a user column and other columns. User column id the primary key.

I want to create a copy of the record where the user="user1" and insert that copy in the same table in a new created record. But I want the new record to have a value of "user2" in the user column instead of "user1" since it's a primary key

Duplicate Record Problem
I am working on a web application that utilizes a sql server database.  One of the tables is a large text file that is imported through a DTS package from a Unix server.  For whatever reason, the Unix box dumps quite a few duplicate records in the nightly run and these are in turn pulled into the table.  I need to get rid of these duplicates, but can't seem to get a workable solution.  the query that is needed to get the records is:SELECT tblAppointments.PatientID, tblPTDEMO2.MRNumber, tblAppointments.PatientFirstName, tblAppointments.PatientLastName,  tblAppointments.PatientDOB, tblAppointments.PatientSex, tblAppointments.NewPatient, tblAppointments.HomePhone,  tblAppointments.WorkPhone, tblAppointments.Insurance1, tblPTDEMO2.Ins1CertNmbr, tblAppointments.Insurance2,  tblPTDEMO2.Ins2CertNmbr, tblAppointments.Insurance3, tblPTDEMO2.Ins3CertNmbr, tblAppointments.ApptDate, tblAppointments.ApptTimeFROM  tblAppointments CROSS JOIN               tblPTDEMO2WHERE (tblAppointments.PatientID = tblPTDEMO2.MRNumber)AND tblAppointments.Insurance1 = 'MED'AND tblAppointments.ApptTypeID <> 'MTG'AND tblAppointments.ApptTypeID <> 'PNV'AND DateDiff("dd", ApptDate, GetDate()) = 0Order By tblAppointments.ApptDateMy first thought was to try to get a Select DISTINCT to work, but couldn't figure out how to do this with the query.  My next thought was to try to set up constraints on the table, but, since there are duplicates, the DTS package fails.  I assume there is a way to set up the transformations in a way to get this to work, but I'm not enough of an expert with SQL Server to figure this out on my own.  I guess the other way to do this is to write some small script or application to do this, but I suspect there must be an easier way for those who know what they are doing.  Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Duplicate Record Question
In order to check that a new users ID does not already exist in the database I thought it would be a good idea to put the Insert into a Try Catch statement so that I can test for the duplicate record exception and inform the user accordingly. I was also trying to avoid querying the data base before executing the Insert.

The problem is what to actually test for. When the code throws the exception it is a big long string . .

"Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_Users_2__51'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'Users'"

I just thought that there has to be something simplar to test for than comparing the exception to the above string.

Can anyone tell me of a better way of doing this ?

(by the way I am only using Web Matrix and MSDE in case it matters)

Duplicate Record Problem
So I'm working on updating and normalizing an old database, and I have some duplicate records that I can't seem to get rid of. Every column is identical, right down to what is supposed to be the key. I can't right a delete query to just isolate one row, and I can't delete (or even udpate) any row in management studio. Any thoughts on how to remove the extra rows?

There is a field that's supposed to be unique, so I can write a simple query to get all of the problem rows. The only thing is that they come back in pairs.

Eliminate Duplicate Record(s)?
Hey Again,

I've been making great progress but I've hit another road block which a newbie intern like myself can't surpass. What's worse is the fact that no one is in the office today! Maybe someone can point me in the right direction with this SQL:

,CONVERT(CHAR(8),r.[submitDate],10)AS submitDate
,CONVERT(CHAR(8),r.[dueDate],10)AS dueDate
,CONVERT(CHAR(8),r.[revisedDueDate],10) AS revisedDueDate
,u.lastName + ', ' + u.firstName AS submittedBy

FROMtblUserDepartment ud
INNER JOIN tblRequest rON ud.departmentID = r.departmentID
INNER JOIN tblDepartment dON r.departmentID = d.departmentID
INNER JOIN tblStatus sON r.reqStatus = s.statusID
INNER JOIN tblUser uON r.requserID = u.userID
LEFT JOIN tblRequestAssignee ra ON r.requestID = ra.requestID
WHEREud.userID= @userID

This works great except for one thing. In tblRequestAssignee, you have 1 primary assignee and can have several other assignees (that are not primary). This is denoted by a bit field "isPrimaryAssignee" in tblRequestAssignee. When I run the query, I see every request I want to but it duplicates requests with more than one assignee. What I'm trying to do is make only the primaryAssignee display if there is one. If there's not, then null is displayed (which is already happening).

Like I said, the query is mostly working right except for this duplicate record that displays when there's 2 assignees. Any help would once again be greatly appreciated.

Help Selecting Duplicate Record Details
I have the following query I am using to identify duplicate records in one of my database tables:


SELECT memberID,
COUNT(memberID) AS NumOccurrences
FROM ChapterMembers
HAVING ( COUNT(memberID) > 1 )

Executing the above proc returns 4079 records...

Now, I would also like to know the ChapterID for each member with a duplicate record. ChapterID is also stored in the ChapterMembers Table...

I tried running the following procedure:


SELECT memberID,
COUNT(memberID) AS NumOccurrences, chapterID
FROM ChapterMembers
GROUP BY memberID, chapterID
HAVING ( COUNT(memberID) > 1 )

But zero results are returned ...

The ultimate goal here is to identify duplicate records where one of their chapterID's = '81017' and to delete that record from the database.

Anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? Also, any suggestions for removing the records would be appreciated.

Opinion On Preventing Duplicate Record Insertion
Hi, i need an opinion on prevent the duplicate record in db,i am using unique constraints for a column or combination of column as the case may be.By reading this  article , i get the feeling that its not such a good idea..i am wondering,what does it imply?Does it mean that unique constraints are not reliable enough?Does it mean,it may break and let the duplicate record inserted,even though its not suppose to?I am using SQL server 2005
I have read Dino's article on dup recs and i have still not understood it completely.. i am looking for some not so complex ,full proof method,to prevent duplicate record insertion by clicking refresh or multiple (careless)clicking on submit....thanks ..

Duplicate A Record Using Update Trigger Question
I am new to SQL and these forums, so please bear with me :)

My basic question is if I can create a update trigger that will pull info from another record in the same table if data in certain fields match the existing record.

An example:

The user creates a new record. If said user enters data in specified fields that matches data in the same fields in another record in the same table, can a update trigger be used to fill out the rest of this record with the data from the record that matches?

If you need more Info on my problem, ask and I will try to explain better. There may be a better way of doing this than using a trigger, but I am not sure. The fields that I would use to match the data would not be the primary key fields.

How Do I Select The Maximum Date For Each Record Having Duplicate ID

Hi All,
Here is my story,  how to change a column called Flag_Status based on the maximum Updated date. i.e. i want to make Flag_Status be 1 for the records which have maximum Updated_date (current record) and the rest to make it 0. for example accountID 1 has three records updated, but only one is current the rest are historical, thus i want the history record to be Falg_status 0 and the current record be 1. Note that Inserted_Date and Updated_Date are created using SSIS Derived column During loading the source table, it helps me when each record is inserted into the Data warehouse.
Here is My source table Name: Source_table,

CREATE TABLE dbo.Source_table



Price int,

Address varchar(30),



Flag_Status Int Default 1


Here is the Fact_table

CREATE TABLE dbo.Fact_table


Fact_table_Key Int Identity (1, 1) NOT NULL,

UPDATE Fact_table

SET Flag_Status =


WHEN (SELECT Max(Updated_Date) From Fact_table

WHERE AccountID IN (SELECT AccountID FROM Fact_table

Group By AccountID Having Count(AccountID)>1)) >

(SELECT Max(edited) From Source_table

WHERE Flag_Status = 1)


WHEN (SELECT AccountID From Source_table

Group By AccountID

Having Count(AccountID) =1) =

(SELECT AccountID From Fact_table

WHERE Updated_Date IS NULL)

I am duplicating a record from my page in to the database. When i click on save I am getting the following error message
Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_clientinfo'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'clientinfo'. The statement has been terminated.
The above message i am getting since i have tried to duplicate the clientname field of my table which is set as the primary key.
What i want is instead of this message in the browser i need to display an alert saying "the clientname entered already exists" by checking the value from the database.
Here is my code. pls modify it to achieve the said problem

How Can I Get The Actual Line Number From Inside Flatfile Sources For Each Record?
hi all,


maybe this is not a serious problem, but I tried for days to come toi a solution without success.

My Problem:

I have have several flatfile sources I need to import into a sql-server 2005 DB.

It is very important for me to have the original line number from inside the source file for each record. The rowcount transform doesn't fit in for this task, because it accumulates all rows until the end of the dataflow.

I tried script components and it works fine if i assume there are no errors in my source. then I simply could declare a local variable and count it up and add a custom collumn to my output. But for errors in my source this won't work, because a second script component  won't know the actual value of a package level variable, which i use to store the value, because i am only allowed to access this variable in the post execujte method of the script.


How can I achieve my goal? Please help me...

Thanks in advance .. Bernd

SELECT Query Syntax To Display Only The Top Record For Duplicate Records
Good day!

I just can't figure out how I can display only the top record for the duplicate records in my table.


Code Date
01 10/1/05
01 10/2/05
01 10/3/05
02 9/9/05
02 9/9/05
02 9/10/05

My desired result would be:
Code Date
01 10/1/05
02 9/9/05

Copy A Record From One Table To Another?

Is there a way of copying/moving a record from one table to another identical table on the same database using ADO.NET
I can obviously do it the long way (retrieving a record, then pushing it up using a second SQL command)
I was just wondering if there is a way to do it in one database hit using some kind of cool SQL function.

Would SQL Prohibt Copy Record
Good Day,

I have an SQL 2005 Server running with a table called
Active and a linked table called Recall.

In my .net APP I wrote a VB code that will copy an
existing record and create a duplicate with a new PK ID.

Now here is the problem, The copy record works perfect if
I create a new record and then copy that record. I can
press my copy button and it will make as many copies as
I want. When I try to copy a record that is pre-existing
from an import I did about 6 months ago it looks like it
works but the record is never copied.

My question come down to, Is their something within SQL that
would prohibt a record from being copied ?

If the answer is yes, Can anyone advise where to look to
change setting in SQL or what type of correction I should

I am new to SQL and coming from a foxpro arena, Which is also
where the imported data came from..

Any advice would be great.

Thank You..

Ways To Make This Work: Several Selectable Related Record For One Main Record.
Hey all!


Sorry for the less then descriptive post title but I didn't find a better way to describe it. I'm developing an app in the express editions of VB and SQLserver. The application is a task/resource scheduler. The main form will have a datepicker or weekly overview and show all tasks scheduled per day. The problem is, I've got one or more people assigned to tasks and I wonder what's the best way to design this. Personally, I'd go for one Task table, a People table and a table that provides a link between them (several record per task, one for each person assigned linking TaskID and PplID). However, I don't see a nice way of showing this data to the end user, allowing him to edit/add etc on ONE screen.

To fix that the only way I see is just add columns to the Task table for every person with select boxes. This way everything can be done on one simple screen. This obviously does present some future issues.

On top of this, which people are available on a day varies and there should be an option to allow a user to set who is available on a specific day. Which would lead me to my first idea and add another table that would provide this. but then I'm having design issues again for the form.


I'm kinda stuck atm, can anyone shed some light on this. I'm sure there is an elegant way of doing this but I'm failing at finding it.


Thanks in advance,

Query Timeouts When Updating A Record Retrieved Through A Websphere JDBC Datasource - Possible Record Locking Problem

 We're running a Sage CRM install with a SQL Server 2000 database at the back end. We're using the Sage web services API for updating data and a JDBC connection to retrieve data as it's so much quicker.

 If I retrieve a record using the JDBC connection and then try and update the same record through the web services, the query times out as if the record is locked for updates. Has anyone experienced anything similar or know what I'm doing wrong? If I just use DriverManager.getConnection() to establish the connection instead of the datasource, and then continue with the same code I don't get these record locking problems. Please find more details below.


The JDBC provider for the datasource is a WebSphere embedded ConnectJDBC for SQL Server DataSource, using an implementation type of 'connection pool datasource'. We are using a container managed J2C authentication alias for logging on.

This is running on a Websphere Application Server v6.1.

Code snippet - getting the record thru JDBC:

DataSource wsDataSource = serviceLocator.getDataSource("jdbc/dsSQLServer");
Connection wsCon = wsDataSource.getConnection();

//    wsCon.setAutoCommit(false); //have tried with and without this flag - same results

     Statements stmt = wsCon.createStatement();

String sql = "SELECT * FROM Person where personID = 12345";
     ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(sql);


if (rs != null){
if (stmt != null) {

if (wsCon != null) {

SSIS: Multi-Record File Extract With 9 Record Types
I am attempting to create a multi-record file (as described in my last thread) and have found the following set of instructions very helpful:
I have been able to create a sample file with two of my record types.
I now need to build on this further, because I have 9 record types in total that need to be extracted to a single flat file.
does anyone have any ideas how I might extend the example above to include more record types or know of another means of achieving this?
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.

Add Date To Record In SQL Server Each Time Record Is Added
Can anyone advise me as to how I can add the date and time to 2 columns in the sql server database for each record that is added. I'd prefer not to use the webform. Can sql server add the date automatically to the row?

Record Locking: Multiple Users Accessing The Same Record
I have read several discussions about SQL 7 having built-in record locking. I am assuming that this is only during the transaction process.

I have a problem with multiple users access the same record on a SQL table. We have these users accessing the SQL data with an Access 2000 DB Project form. When one person accesses the form to pull up a record, someone doing this at the same time will get an error window that asks the user to Save/Drop changes. Is there any way to LOCK DOWN a record until a user has finished making changes to it?
