Case Sensitivity When A User Enters Data Into The Database. How To Deal With Case Sensitivity.

Sep 6, 2007

I am working on a C#/ web application. The application has a text box that allows a user to enter a name. The name is then saved to the database.
Before the name is saved to the database, I need to be able to check if the name already exists in the database. The problem  here is that what if the name is in the database as "JoE ScMedLap" and somoene enters the name as "Joe Schmedlap" which already exists in the database,but just differs in case.
In other words how do deal with case sensitiviy issues.

I have two questions:

1) is it possible to make case sensetive researche in SQL-Server?
like : SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE myColumn = "This" [and not "this"]

2) is it possible to make case sensetive unique indexes? Allowing to add "This" and "this" in the same indexed column?

Thanks a lot for any feedback!

Case Sensitivity

Jul 7, 2007

Hi I have two questions about case sensitivity;
1. Do most people write their queries with UPPERCASE keywords or is that only for the textbooks. Personally I find it a hassle, My little finger aches because it is always on and off the SHIFT key
2. I noticed that when I did the following query
use AdventureWorks
Select * employee
I get an 'invalid object' message
But if I use;
use AdventureWorks
Select * Employee
It works. SO obviously the query is case sensitive.
Did this use to be the case with SQL 2000. I don't seem to remember having to be careful about case.

Case Sensitivity

Nov 13, 2006

Is SQL server defaults to case insensitive? I am sure there are ways toinstall case sensitive SQL server instance but coming from Sybase(which is always case sensitive) case insensitivity is something new tome (it requires coding change etc).Besides, is there any option I can set to turn on case sensitivity or Iam stuck with it? (I can not reinstall SQL server).Thanks.

Case Sensitivity

Apr 3, 2008

I scripted a function to a sql file, transferred the file to a different machine and when I run it it fails. It turns out that it thinks @result does not exist because I delcared @Result. Changing it to uppercase R resolves the problem. I usually keep my case sensitivity but missed this one. This is the first time I've ever seen sql care about the casing though! Is it a setting?

How To Create Key Time Column And Key Column For A Case Table And A Nested Table For Time Series Algorithm?

Jun 18, 2007

Hi, all experts here,

Thanks for your kind attention.

I want to use time series algorithm to mine data from my case table and nested table. Case table is Date table, while nested table is the fact table. E.g, I want to predict the monthly sales amount for different region (I have region table related to the fact table), how can I achieve this?

Thanks a lot and I hope it is clear for your help and I am looking forward to hearing from you shortly.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

Questions On Key Column In Case Table And Key Time Column In Nested Table Using Time Series Algorithm

Jun 4, 2007

Hi, all experts here,

Thank you very much for your kind attention.

I am confused on key column of case table and key time column of nested table by using Time Series algorithm.

In my case, the case table structure is as below:

Territory key text (the ID is actually dimrisk_key, in this case, I use the name column binding to combine the Territory column of case table Dimrisks),

While the nested table structure is as below:

Cal_month key time (in this case, actually the ID is dimdate_key, again, I used name column bining property to bind the Cal_month to the ID)

So my question is, as the key column of case table has been set to be Territory, as a result, does the model training still cover all the cases (rows) based on the ID of the table?

Also, in the nested table, as the key time column has been set to Cal_month rather than Dimdate_key of the nested table, as a result, would the single series based on the cal_month?

Hope it is clear for your advices and help.

And I am looking forward to hearing from you shortly.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

SQL Case Sensitivity In SQL2005

May 15, 2007

Hello all,
I've come across a bit of an issue, I'm testing software delivered by another company that includes an SQL2005 database. I've rolled back their live database on my developer database, but my server has a binary collation set as default server collation.
Because of this (or so I think) all variable/table/etc names in any SQL code are case sensitive, even when called in the context of a database with a case insensitive collation. As an example, when I run the following code on my developer computer I get an error, on their live server I don't.DECLARE @number INT
SET @Number = 1

Because of this I am getting alot of errors from their code, since their entire application has differing capitalization usage from page to page. Is there any way around this or do I need to reinstall the SQL Server on my computer to set a different collation?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Jul 20, 2005

I have a SQL Server database hosted with a web hosting company. TheSQL Server was clearly set up to be case sensitive, however, I wantthis particular database to be case-insensitive.I have searched high and low, the best suggestion I can find is toreinstall SQL Server and select case-insensitive. But since this isthe web host's SQL, that isn't an option here.With default language I can use the sp_defaultlanguage to change toBritish settings (for example). Is there something similar I can useto make just this database case insensitive?--Popular uprising? know what)com

OpenXML Elements Case Sensitivity Problem

Mar 19, 2007

Hi All - I am using OpenXML to insert data into SQL Server 2005. All works okay except for the fact that in my XML I have an attribute tag and elements as follows.<Location>    <Place City = "LA" State = "CA">    <Place city = "NY" State = "NY">    <Place City = "St. Louis" state = "MO"></Location>  If you notice in the above code,  the 2nd city NY has element tag "city" in lower case and others are "City" with a Upper Case "C" same for state in case of MO which is lower case and others are Upper Cases..Now I understand that XML is case sensitive. What should I do if I have XML files in the above format with inconsistent element tags? Because if I run the below code.. using OpenXML...Insert Into TableXSelect *FROM OPENXML (@DocHandle, '/Location/Place', 1)                             WITH (City varchar(255) '@City', State varchar(255) '@State') ox Then in the above scenario it won't insert values for city "NY" and state "MO" since both have lower case elements tags and in my OpenXML I have specified as @City and @State with Upper Case "C" and "S" respectively.  Now in such a scenario what can one do? Any thoughts is to how I can also grab value for lower case "city" and "state" in the above XML.  Any help would me much appreciated. Thanks a billion.Regards- web

Latin1_General_BIN Case Sensitivity When Inserting Into Tables

Feb 27, 2008

So I have been unfortunate enough to inherit a whole estate of sql servers running a collation of Latin1_General_BIN.
I have a batch of maintenance and monitoring scripts that I want to implement on these servers. However I seem to have problems compiling the stored procs as the case of the column names varies throughout the script and table definitions.

Ok I know I could recode them, but is there way to overide the case sensitivity in insert and update statements so they dont have to be recoded?

Transact SQL :: Case Statement For A New Column Based On Date And Username Columns

Sep 2, 2015

Below is the SQL Query i am currently having

SELECT IG_FinancialTransactionSummary.ClaimNum,IG_FinancialTransactionSummary.TransactionCode,

[Code] ....

And here is the result dataset

ClaimNumTransactionDateUsername ClaimNum TransactionAmountUserName
2000074 20150209jerry.witt 2000074 -10000DATAFIX INSERTED ON 20150626 AT 162152493 LOCAL
2000074 20150626DATAFIX INSERTED ON 20150626 AT 162152493 LOCAL 2000074 -10000DATAFIX INSERTED ON 20150626 AT 162152493 LOCAL

[Code] .....

So,if we look at the result set, we notice 2 conditions where the IG_FinancialTransactionSummary.Username is like 'Data' and if we see the transaction date then sometimes that is the max transaction date or sometimes there are transactions that happened after but that doesn't have like '%data%' in username . So, i need to add a new column to my sql query which should basically verify if the username is like '%data%' and if that is the max(transaction date) or even if there are any transactions after that doesn't have like '%data%' then YES else No.
