Transact SQL :: Does Server Support MINUS Keyword

Mar 22, 2006

I have two tables CarType & Cars.  Table CarType has a column CarTypeId which is the primary key (int, identity).  Table Cars includes a column CarTypeId (int) which is a foreign key into the CarType table.Now I am trying to build a list of all those CarTypeId entries (from the CarType table) for which there are no Cars (i.e. there is no corresponding entry in the Cars table).I read that there is an SQL "MINUS" keyword that you can use like this:

SELECT CarTypeId FROM CarTypeMINUSSELECT CarTypeId FROM Cars..So if CarType contains records with the keys {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} and Cars contains records with the foreign keys {2, 4} (using set notation), your result should be the set {1, 3, 5}.  (Note:  I have tried alternate versions of this where I selected the DISTINCT CarTypeId entries from Cars, and where I sorted them; results same in both cases).I tried it in SQL Server 2005 Express.  The result is just {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}.

Is the MINUS capability supported by SQL Server?  I know that there are all sorts of different SQL dialects & implementations and that SQL has evolved & transmutated over the years; perhaps they opted to leave this out of SQL Server..

Here's a reference to the website where I initially found out about MINUS: [URL] ....

Transact SQL :: Declarations Do Not Have DECLARE Keyword Prefacing Variable Identifier

Jul 20, 2015

So I was looking at the code for the proc created by Ola's script and noticed a number of variable declarations happening early on (like at line 10) but these variable declarations do not have the DECLARE keyword prefacing the variable identifier.

Then, a couple lines lower, a new batch of variables are declared, but this time with the DECLARE keyword. I was under the impression that you always needed the DECLARE. Is it a scope thing? Like related to the fact the first set of variables are before the stored proc's begin statement?

USE [master]
/****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[DatabaseBackup] Script Date: 7/20/2015 2:23:36 PM ******/
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[DatabaseBackup]

Keyword Query

Jan 9, 2004

I have a sample photo database where we have added keywords to search for photos. I wanted a way to list all of the keywords that are in the database individually. The problem is in my keyword field there are many keywords seperated by a comma.

Ex: "bull, barrel, rodeo, western, cowboy" would in the keyword field for one photo.

I wanted to select distinct all of the individual words from each keyword field in all of the records.

Can this be done? What would the query look like?

I am looking for a list like:


Any suggestions?

Problem With Query Where Column Name Is The Same As A Keyword

Mar 31, 2004


I am having trouble with the following query within my store procedure.
as you can see, i am making an union of 2 separate queries.

in the 2nd part of the union, i encounter a column in the database where the column name is the same as the keyword "desc"

is there a way which i can get around this, or is there any other way that i can sepecify the column? (excluding the possibility of using *)

CREATE PROCEDURE topcat.getTransHistory
@contact_id numeric(9)
DECLARE @phone_no varchar(255)

set @phone_no = (select top 1 phone_num from topcat.class_contact where _id = @contact_id)

select cast(trans_new.trans_date as varchar(50)) date,
'' code,
cast(payment.date_paid as varchar(50)) datepaid,
'' "desc",
case payment.payment_type
when 'cheque' then trans_new.item_total
else ''
end pledged,
'' mail,
case payment.payment_type
when 'cheque' then ''
else trans_new.item_total
end received,
'' receipt
from topcat.class_transaction trans_new left outer join topcat.class_payment payment on trans_new._id = payment.transaction_id
where trans_new.contact_id = @contact_id
select cast( as varchar(50)) "date",
cast(trans_old.datepaid as varchar(50)) "datepaid",
cast(trans_old.pledged as varchar(128)),
cast(trans_old.received as varchar(128)),

Uppercase T-sql Keyword In Query Editor

Oct 16, 2006

In Query Editor I type statements like this:

"select * from ...."

Does Query Editor support a "macro" facility where I could, via keystorke, uppercase all t-sql keywords? (so it would look like SELECT * FROM...)



P.S. You think I'm lazy? I knew a programmer who was so lazy that his password was one character long!

AWE, /3gb And /pae Stuff

Jul 4, 2007

Hi all,

I'm running under Windows Server 2000 datacenter sp4 with sql server 2000 Sp4

on 16GB Ram.

I enabled the /PAE in the boot.ini file and also enabled the AWE and set the SLQ Server maximum memory to 6144.

Do I need to include the /3GB switch in the boot.ini file?

I'm a little bit confused with the article found on the site.

Here are the lines.

Use of the /PAE switch in the Boot.ini and the AWE enable option in SQL Server allows SQL Server 2000 to utilize more than 4 GB memory. Without the /PAE switch SQL Server can only utilize up to 3 GB of memory.
or-Use of the /3GB switch in the Boot.ini file allows SQL Server 2000 to use up to 3 GB of available memory.

Locale Stuff

Jan 25, 2005


You might just be able to save me downloading and installing SQL Server French...

I'm having localization problems with some .NET code - and I might be able to solve the problem if I know how SQL is parsed in different locales. Say my table MyTable contains a float column FloatColumn. In English, I would say
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE FloatColumn = 2.3

If my locale was, say for argument's sake, French, would I have to write
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE FloatColumn = 2,3

Thanks for your help,

Datetime And Other Stuff

Dec 12, 2005

Overview. Machine data is fed into DOWNTIMELOG via a Cimplicity. I do not have the ability to change the way that it goes in. It contains the time that a machine has stopped and where the stoppage has occurred. Via a web page I want to give the operator the amount of time the machine stopped. From that they will provide some more detail. As they enter time, I need to subtract what they entered from the total (DOWNTIMELOG). That is the reason I created ENTERED_TIME. [PDNTOTAL_TEMP_VAL0] hold the total time for each stoppage, [TOTTIME] is intended to hold the value that has been accounted for. [DWNCATEGORY_TEMP_VAL0] holds the category and matches up with [DWNCATEGORY]. Also, I need to match Date and Shift. The problem is that DOWNTIMELOG does not capture shift. However, 1st shift occurs between 700 and 1500, 2nd shift occurs between 1500 and 2300, 3rd shift occurs between 2300 and 700. 3rd shift presents a problem as it occurs across 2 dates. Could someone please help me with a query that provides the net between the two tables that is matched by date, shift and category?
[timestamp] [datetime] NOT NULL ,
[DWNTIMESTAMP_VAL0] [varchar] (25) NULL ,
[UPTIMESTAMP_VAL0] [varchar] (25) NULL ,
[PDNMIN_VAL0] [int] NULL ,
[PDNSEC_VAL0] [int] NULL ,

[REC_ID] [int] IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL ,
[DWNCATEGORY] [varchar] (50) NULL ,
[DWNMSG] [int] NULL ,
[ENTRYDATE] [smalldatetime] NULL ,
[SHIFT] [int] NULL ,

Hello,I need to be able to replace only the first occurance of a space characterin a column.Reason being is the data in the column I am trying to replace seems to haveumpteen space characters after each entry, so a simple replace functionwill replace all the spaces after it with what I want!I have thought of RTRIM to get rid of the spaces after and then replace, Ihave also thought of CHARINDEX to find the first occurance of a space andSTUFF to replace it.I have done my homework on these functions!But I am having trouble writing such a statement,I've never written a query which would use more then one function on onecolumn you see and I am getting confused!I'll tell you what I want to do in simple stepsReplace only the first found space in a name column, but then if a name hasa middle initial that will be a problem,Replace that with a dot.then concatanate '@emailaddress;@emailaddress2' after itso when SQLServer does the select it will bring back something likejoe.bloggs@emailaddress;emailaddressBut I guess I'd also need joe.n.bloggs@emailaddress;emailaddressThe data in the column looks like this at the momentjoe bloggsBut I guess there may come a time when we havejoe n bloggs, just to complicate things!What is your advice, and how do I write a query like thisI have been playing around with it in Query Analyser but as I said I amgetting confused and need some help if you don't mindThanks a lot to all who reply :-)RegardsJayne

Why Does The Automatic Scripts That Are Generated Have So Much Stuff?

Dec 11, 2007

For example if I make a column not null the SQL Script generated.
Removes all indexes, keys, etc... than creates a temp tableThan moves the data into the temp tablethen deletes the old tablerenames the temp tableRecreate all the indexes, keys, etc...
Is there a structure reason for it? Like now that the DB is being alerted that the column is not null it wants to re insert all the data so it can re-organize it?
Because I can just write my own script to the effect of
ALTER [TABLE] [COLUMN] PARAM TYPE NOT NULLone line of script that seemingly does the exact same thing..
So I'm just curious when I change a column to non null why doesn't it just generate a simple one liner?

Use Stuff To Define Range Of Values?

Nov 13, 2014

I have this query that calculates the next possible shipping day, based on 3 conditions:

- It has to be a workingday (WORKTIMECONTROL: 1 workingday, 0 holiday) - marked green
- There might be extra days (@xdays) required by the process - marked blue
- Customer wants their goods to be shipped on special days - marked red:select TOP 1 Transdate
where Transdate > @startday and WORKTIMECONTROL = 1 and DATEPART(WEEKDAY,TRANSDATE)-1 in (2,4) and


So customer 123456 accepts shipping of goods only on tuesday and thursday as in the above example "... in (2,4)". Multiple shipping days means that the Subquery returns more than one record, which gives me a headache as I don't see how to integrate this portion into my query. I tried to use the stuff function as I formally need a result that can be provided that way; but the format is incorrect as it in varchar, while an array of integer is needed.

DATEPART(WEEKDAY,TRANSDATE)-1 in (select stuff((select ',' + CAST(DELIVERYDAY as nvarchar) from CollectiveShipment where custaccount = '123456'
for xml path('')),1,1,''))

Separate Data Stuff From Applications

Jan 22, 2007


This is probably for most of you a very basic question. My goal is to define in a seperate instance from application all infos related to DataSets and DataAdapters that are needed when connecting to a specific database. Why?

First, I would like to be able to have in a single instance everything needed when hooking to a SQL Server Express database and in an other everything needed when hooking to a SQL Server CE database. Then, from application, I would like to be able following a few basic configuration steps to choose from one or the other, or even both in specific cases.

Second, I want to be able to seperate Database related stuff from application so that I can re-use everything from any other application when needed.

I've read several books, articles on the subject and would like to have your opinion as several approaches were illustrated through them. What would you use for this:

- Component class?

- Class library?

- or else?

Any good articles on the subject?

Thanks in advance for sharing,

Merge Replication - Weird Stuff

May 21, 2007

I'm implementing merge replication between SQL CE and sql server 2005 SP2. Here is the problem I'm facing

I have dynamic filters on some tables like

Select * from table1 inner join table2

ON table1.field1 = table2.field3

and table2.flag = true

When table2 flag turns true then all the matching records in table1 should be returned to the subscriber.

But that is not happening. The filter does not return any records to the subscriber even though i see records when i run the query on the server. My take on this is the publisher thinks there is no changes on table1 so there is nothing to update. So to fix that i run dummy updates like

update table1

set [name] = [name]

where table1.field1 in

(Select field2 from table2 where flag=true)

This updates the records and the publisher updates the subscriber the first time. When i set the flag to false, it is supposed to remove the data from the subscriber but i get this error.

The merge process failed because it detected a mismatch between the replication metadata of the two replicas, such that some changes could be lost leading to non-convergence. This could be due to the subscriber not having synchronized within the retention period, or because of one of the replicas being restored to a backup older than retention period, or because of the publisher performing more aggressive cleanup on articles of type download-only and articles with partition_options = 3. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL-2147199363)
Get help: http://help/MSSQL_REPL-2147199363

The common generation watermark is invalid at this replica since it does not exist or metadata for changes not yet propagated may have been cleaned up. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 21800)
Get help: http://help/21800

I have no idea whats going on. Any clues, anyone? Thanks for your help.

Renaming A Project... Some Minor Stuff

Apr 16, 2008

I have a project. Originally when I created this project, I called it "Project_A", (and I did not create a solution directory).

Doing this created a folder called "Project_A" with the following files within it. I guess these are meta data files and I shouldnt be messing around with them. Anyway, I see

(1) Package.dtsx (The default package that gets created with a new project)
(2) Project_A.database
(3) Project_A.dtproj
(4) Project_A.dtproj.user
(5) Project_A.sln
(6) Project_A.suo

When I rename my project in the Solution Explorer to "Project_B", the following happens in my folder.

Everything remains the same except Project_A.dtproj gets renamed to Project_B.dtproj and a new file called Project_B.dtproj.user gets created.

Now, my questions.

Question 1: What if I wanted my folder to have the same name as my project? Can I just change the folder name in Windows Explorer without having any ill-behaviors later on? I always have 1 project to 1 solution so I want to use the convention of keeping my folder named the same as my project.

Question 2: What about the files that are still named with Project_A dot blah blah. Is it bad if I renamed these to Project_B dot blah blah?

Partitioning Tables And Filegroup Stuff

Jan 17, 2007

Hi everyone,
Primary platform is 64-bit on A-P cluster.
Our needs are on yearly basis and on monthly basis. We're forced to keep up five years for the majority of the production tables.
In terms of years, I see three ways:
1.Create all the ranges for a FILEGROUP with a only NDF
2004, 2005, 2006 => FG1 =>  ONE.NDF
2.Create all the ranges for a FILEGROUP along with more than one NDF.
2004, 2005, 2006 => FG1 =>  ONE.NDF
3.Create each range to a FILEGROUP where there will be  one NDF or  (n) NDF
2004 => FG0=> ZERO.NDF
2006 => FG1 => ONE.NDF
2005 => FG2 => TWO.NDF
What is the best approach in terms of availability, performance and best practices? Maybe is a silly question, I'm sorry if it is.
As usual, thanks a lot for your time.

Simple SQL Server Stuff For An Oracle Person...

Jul 27, 2006

I'm trying to do some basic stuff in SQL Server 2005 that I could do in Oracle.  I'm sure there's a way to do these things, I just don't know how.  My most immediate question is this:
Is there any easy way to run a SQL script and have it spool to HTML tables to a file?  The 'results to text' from SSMS is not adequate for display purposes.  I'm trying to display table/column descriptions.
Beyond that, does anyone know of any good resources that provide an 'Oracle to SQL Server' matrix so I can help figure out how to do some of these things in SQL Server?
Thanks in advance,

SQL Server 2012 :: STUFF Function With HTML Tag

Jan 6, 2015

I have the following query that supposes to merge multiple result in a single one and put it into a temporary table:

SELECT DISTINCT [AlphaExtension],
STUFF((SELECT A.[NoteText] + '< BR />' FROM #temp A
WHERE A.[AlphaExtension]=B.[AlphaExtension]
FOR XML PATH('')),1,1,'') As [NoteText]
FROM #temp B
GROUP BY [AlphaExtension], [NoteText]

It is working fine unless by a simple detail. If you look at the second line of the query you will see that I am stuffing together a < BR /> tag (break line) because the contents of the field is going to be spitted directly to the screen and I want that the multiple results be displayed in different lines.

OK, the issue is that it is stuffing & lt ; BR / & gt ; instead < BR /> and therefore the browser is displaying the tag instead to break a line.
