Dummy Where Clause Allowing Dummy Select Of Data - Utilizing Where Value = 1
Years ago, I remember while doing maintenance on a stored procedure seeing a 'Select x, y, z Where 'some value' = 1.

The function of this, I believe was to make the select work but not retrieve any actual values.


I am attempting to use this in an 'Insert Into Select values From' statement. This insert uses multiple selects via unions and I need a final dummy Select statement with no Where criteria.

What I am thinking may not even apply to what I need to do here.

If you recognizesomething even remotely near what I am trying to get across I would appreciate your sending me the code.

Another solution for me is just inserting one row with a final RecId = 6 and ' ' or 0 values for the other fields into a table
but I was hoping this would work.

Example:

Insert Into table
Select
1 as RecId,
' ' as field1,
field2
From test1
Where field2 = 'CA'

Union
Select
2 as RecId,
' ' as field1,
field2
From test1
Where field2 = 'NJ'

Union

/*Final Select */

Select
6 as RecId,
' ' as field1,
field2
From test1
Where 'some value' = 1'

Thanks much for your assistance!!!

Dummy Table?
Hi!

I'm new in SQL SERVER 2000 and i'm looking for some kind of predefined dummy table. You know something like the "dual"-Table in Oracle. I want to use it for queries like that:

Select 1, 'auto' from dummy_table

Does anyone know, if something like that in SQL SERVER 2000 exists?

How Can You Insert A Dummy Row At The Top Of Every Related Recordset In A Table?
I have the following:

TicketID_1 AuditRec1
TicketID_1 AuditRec2
TicketID_1 AuditRec3
TicketID_1 AuditRec4
TicketID_1 AuditRec5
TicketID_2 AuditRec1
TicketID_2 AuditRec2
TicketID_2 AuditRec3
TicketID_2 AuditRec4
TicketID_2 AuditRec5

I need to insert a dummy row as the first row in this AuditRecord table for every occurrance of a given TicketID so that I get the following:

Dummy_Tick1 Dummy_AuditRec
TicketID_1 AuditRec1
TicketID_1 AuditRec2
TicketID_1 AuditRec3
TicketID_1 AuditRec4
TicketID_1 AuditRec5
Dummy_Tick2 Dummy_AuditRec
TicketID_2 AuditRec1
TicketID_2 AuditRec2
TicketID_2 AuditRec3
TicketID_2 AuditRec4
TicketID_2 AuditRec5

The AuditRec table is huge. How can I accomplish this using SQL?

SQL Dummy!
Thank you to the two persons who took time to respond to my question.

I have to tell you - I know absolutely NOTHING about SQL.

Can you please tell me in language a two-year-old could understand, "What is SQL?"

Dummy Question
It seems every month when I'm diluged by lots of data I fall back on olereliable, Excel. But, I get over 50,000 rows of data to scrub. A colleagueof mine suggested I use a database. Seems simple so far, but having dabbledin Access, it has always not so intuitive to understand. My question istwo-fold, is SQL a database. I believe its the language of some otherdatabase. If I'm corrent on the later, what database(s) use SQL?Tony

Dummy Question
Hello,

For sure that this is a dummy question but can you explain me how SQL Server reacts to the fact that we have the same application running in two different pc's and this two applications intent to insert,update, delete or even read a record from the same table

Does "he" blocks the record until one of them leave the table ??? And if the other tries to update at the same time ???

Thanks,
Paulo

Accomodating 'Dummy' Data?
Hello,I am working with a vb6 Windows application that runs on Tablet PC's.There are about five SQL Server 2000 databases that tie into theapplication. SQL Server MSDE runs on the tablets, and currently thereis only one instance running. There are efforts underway to upgrade theapplication to a .NET SmartClient.One enhancement that needs to be made to the current application willbe to provide a 'training mode' in the application for the users. Theuser will use the same application, but will work with 'dummy' datainstead of live data when in training mode.So far as I can tell, the easiest way to accomodate this would be tohave a second instance of MSDE with 'copies' of all the databasesrunning, but with the 'dummy' data contained in the databases copies.The application would have some mechanism for switching to 'trainingmode', and maybe by some change of a connection string, the dummy datawould be presented in the application.So aside from accomodating a 'training mode' feature in theapplication, the application would remain the same, and the databaseschema for the databases would remain the same. Only the data wouldchange for 'training mode'.I'm looking for some ideas on how to approach this. This application isused by five thousand field agents, and so we can't support thisimplementation on a case by case basis. So my thought is that thesolution needs to have 'few moving parts'. If we can do this and getaway from having two instances of MSDE, that would be great. I have nottried to set up identical databases in different directories on thesame instance (I figure that would cause a problem in a system table ortwo someplace, but maybe not), but its one thing I want to investigate.If you have any ideas on this, please share!Thank you for your help!CSDunn

Question About Dummy Constraint
I've written code that dynamically builds an sql query based onvarious constraint possibilities.The problem is the code would have been very complex had I not come upwith a dummy constraint as a kind of place holder in the statement.To avoid complex logic that determines if there was another constraintbefore any other constraint and hence the need to add, say, AND ornot, I came up with a dummy constraint so that every subsequentconstraint will begin with AND. There's no need to determine whetherto add AND or not. This makes the coding much simpler because allthat needs to be done is ask if a certain condition exists then addthe constraint along with AND in front every time.So what I did was create the statement like this:SELECT elapsed_time AS ET from Table1 WHERE 1 > 0 AND 1stConstraintAND 2nd Constraint and so on.See if the 1 > 0 condition were not there it would be necessary tofirst determine the first actual contraint and not add AND in front ofit and then add the rest with ANDs in front of every one.I should add that the user does not have to select any constraint andthat's the problem. I need to stick that WHERE 1>0 in there so thatthere doesn't need to be a determination of which other, if any,constraints are selected.Even if my explanation above is not well understood, believe me thefront-end coding is much easier this way.My question is does the 1 > 0 conditional check present the databasewith any significant overhead or as far was dummy constraints go isthis as good as any other?-David

Create 'Dummy' Rows
Guys - scenario/DDL/DML below

Create table #Periods (Period INT , Frequency INT , startdate datetime NULL , enddate datetime NULL )
insert #Periods (Period , Frequency , startdate , enddate)
select 0 , 3 , '01-Nov-2004' , '30-Nov-2004'
union all
select 1 , 3 , '01-Dec-2004' , '31-Dec-2004'
union all
select 2 , 3 , '01-Jan-2005' , '31-Jan-2005'
union all
select 2 , 6 , '01-Nov-2004' , '30-Nov-2004'
union all
select 3 , 6 , '01-Dec-2004' , '31-Dec-2004'
union all
select 4 , 6 , '01-Jan-2005' , '31-Jan-2005'

select * from #periods
Period Frequency startdate enddate
03 2004-11-01 00:00:00.0002004-11-30 00:00:00.000
13 2004-12-01 00:00:00.0002004-12-31 00:00:00.000

46 2005-01-01 00:00:00.0002005-01-31 00:00:00.000


For any frequency (in this simple example 6) where the 'lowest' period is not 0, I need to create dummy rows
so here I need to create the following
Period Frequency startdate enddate
06 NULL NULL
16 NULL NULL

I've built a temp table to identify the min period for each Frequency but am not sure where to go from here using this to do the inserts ?
select
min(Period) as MinPeriod ,
ResetFrequency
into #Periods2
from #Periods
group by ResetFrequency

select * from #CashFlow2
MinPeriodResetFrequency
03
16

Is MSSQL&#39;s Optimizer Dummy Or What?
I have a table with field "field" and index on it.

SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE field=something does not use index & it makes tablescan.

when i use SELECT * FROM TABLE (INDEX=...)..., it works good and speedy

why optimizer does not use index in that simple query? And what does optimizer do with more sophisticated query!!!!!!

thanx, Beargie

Inserting Dummy Data
No one answered this question, how do people normally insert dummy data into tables? I mean, where does the data typically come from? what process is used to insert the data? Note: This is for testing purposes, eventually to be tested in a Web-based front-end which I know nothing about.

thx,

Each folder should be filled as follows:
FolderID = New Guid
Name = "Name" + N (1, 2, 3, ...)
CreatedDate = Current Date



3. For each Folder I want to insert a random number of Files.
It can be added 0 to 10 Files.

Each file should be filled as follows:
FileID = New Guid
FolderID = Folder ID
Description = "Description" + Folder Number + File Number


4. For each file added associate it with a random number of Tags.

It can be 0 to 10 Tags and it should be done as follows:


Insert record in FilesTags where:
TagID = Random TagID taken from table Tags
That has still not be used in current File
FileID = Current FileID



Could someone, please, help me doing this?



My tables are as follows:



create table dbo.Tags
(
TagID uniqueidentifier not null
constraint PK_Tag primary key clustered,
[Name] nvarchar(200) not null

Inserting Dummy Lines And Padding
Hi AllCan you please help me with a few queries on adding a header line andpadding rows out.I apologise profusely for not providing the DDL for this, but I don't haveit. All I have is stored procedure that I'm trying to edit to make thefront-end app display the right data.The relevant part of the stored procedure that I'm working on is as follow:Declare StockHelpCursor Scroll Cursor ForSelect s.StockID,ISNULL(sd.ShortDescription, s.StockID) +space(30-len(ISNULL(sd.ShortDescription,s.StockID))) +pl.name +space(10-len(str(pl.name,10,3))) +sp.currencyid + str(sp.sellingprice,10,3) +space(10-len(str(sp.sellingprice,10,3))) +str(sq.quantityinstock)From Stock s, StockDescriptions sd, StockQuantities sq,StockPrices sp, PriceLevels plWhere (s.StockID Like @theID) And(ISNULL(sd.ShortDescription, sd.StockID) Like @theName) And(s.StockID=sd.StockID) And(s.StockID=sq.StockID) And(s.StockID=sp.StockID) And(sp.PriceLevelID=pl.PriceLevelID) And(sd.LanguageID=@theLanguageID) And(sp.CurrencyID=@theCurrencyID)Order By s.StockIDOpen StockHelpCursorPLEASE NOTE: this query works fine apart from the following problems:1) Creating a header line - I need to insert a header line to this cursorfor the field headers, as the app is stripping off this header. I wasthinking of creating a var, sticking it in-between the Declare and theSelect part and inserting these field headers, but I don't know how to dothis. Any ideas?2) Padding the results - As you can see from the script, I have tried to padout the above fields as the app's output window is basically a textbox, butthey just don't line up.NOTE: I'm using the 3 in the str(xxx,10,3) bit to make my numbers show at 3decimal places.Could you please give me some pointers on how I can pad these out correctly.ThanksRobbie

Test - Populating Tables With Dummy Data
In 2000, BCP seemed the way to go. DTS packages would also work. My question is, in 2005, what is the best choice? I seem to remember that BCP ignored all referential integrity constraints, and applying them afterwords was a royal pain. I'm not a BCP expert by any means. Running this at the command line means using the DOS prompt correct?

What is 2005's answer to this?

Sort Matrix On Dummy Grouping Value/subtotal


I have matrix with 3 row groupings
Parent, Child, Baby

I have a value in the data cell and also a dummy column grouping to show some % values.

The % is basically what the row subtotalrepresents as a % of all the data in the dataset.

The Parent row group alsohas a subtotal, so the % here will show all values within the parent as a % of all data.

I have interactive sorting on Parent, Child and Baby.

but what I want to do is this:

Interactive sorting of the parent-subtotal-percent column values to cause a physical reordering of the parents.

i.e. show me the parents in order of their "% as a total of the entire dataset"

Possible?

How Can I Import Records From A Sql Server Table In Project1 To Another Sql Server Table In Project2
Hi, i have a table with all employee bio-data in a completed project. Iam now working on another project with a table that needs the same data and here iam talking about 300 records that rarely change. Instead of re-entering this data in this new table, i want to import the data from the completed project into a table in this new project. Does any one have any idea how to achieve that or is there a better option to do the same.
One more thing iam realising here is that iam going to use this same data in very many applications and some one from one department is going to enter this data in all these different applications. so i was wondering if there could be a way of having a central database that this guy can mantain and then i be able to use that table data in different applications that iam going to develop. I dont want to kill this unlucky guy with data entry tasks every time i deploy a new application.
So basically, how can make one database application sever several different applications with its data.

Query A SQL Server Compact Table While Querying A SQL 2005 Server Table
Hi there,

I'm trying to run a query on a SQL Server 2005 table which has a WHERE clause that requires a query from my SQL Compact table.



SELECT * from RemoteDB.TESTDB.dbo.Objects

WHERE Last_Updated > '2008-05-21 10:51:00'

AND Object_PARENT IN (select Object_CODE from LocalDB.PDADB.dbo.Objects)


Basicallly on a linked system, this query would find all new objects in my main database where the same objects exist in my local database. This would work just perfectly, no problems.

Now, the local database is actually on a PDA running SQL Server Compact Edition. There is currently no support for creating a linked environment. I have the option of pulling the table off the local db and pushing it to the remote db and then running the above query from within the single db and then retrieving the list of new entries and pulling them down to the local db but that is a HUGE amount of bandwidth, even if I just used the single primary key column.

Would anyone maybe have a little advice for me on how I could possibly achieve the above result on SQL Server Compact please?


Thanks in advance

Importing Access Table Into SQL Server 2005 Express Table And Adding One Field
Hi all,

Hopefully I am posting this question in the correct forum. I am still learning about SQL 2005. Here is my issue. I have an access db that I archive weekly into and SQL server table. I have used the dst wizard to create an import job and initally that worked fine. field I have as the primary key in the access db cannot be the primary key in the sql table since I archive weekly and that primary key field will be imported several time over. I overcame this initally by not having a primary key in the sql table. This table is strictly for reference.However, now I need to setup a unique field for each of the records in the sql table. What I have done so far is create a recordID field in the sql table that is an int and set as yes to Identify (auotnumber). That worked great and created unique id for all existing records. The problem now is on the import. When I try to import the access table i am getting an error because of the extra field in the sql table, and the error is saying cannot import null value into this field. So... my final question is how can I import the access table into the sql table with one extra field which is the autonumber unique field? Thanks a bunch for any asistance.

Bill

INSERT New Record Works OK In Local Table, BUT Not If The Target SS DB/table Is In A Different Physical Server


Hi... I was hoping if someone could share me some thoughts with the issue that I am having at the moment.

Problem: When I run the package in my local machineand update local SS DB/table - new records writes OK in the table. BUT when I changed my destination meaning write record into another physical SS DB/table there is no INSERT data occurs. AND SO when I move/copy over that same package into another server (e.g. server that do not write record earlier) and run it locally IT WORKS fine too.

What I am trying to do is very simple - Add new records in aSS table using SSIS . I only care for newrows and not even changed rows.
Here is my logic -
1. Create Ole DB source to RemoteSERVER - using SELECT stmt
2. I have LoopUpcomponent that will look for NEW records -Directs all rows that don't find match and redirect rows (error output).
3.SinceI don't care for any rows thatis matched in mylookup - I do nothing or I trash the rows
4. I send theerror rows (NEW rows) into OleDB destination

RESULTSwhen Irun the package locally and destination table is also local - WORKS FINE;
But when I run the package locally and destination table is in another Sserver (remote) - now rows is written.

The package is run thru BIDS manually so there is no sucurity restrictions attached to it.

I am not sure what I am missing. And I do not see error in my package either. It is not failing.

Thanks in advance!

Append Query From Access Table To Linked SQL Server Table Failing
Strange one here - I am posting this in both SQL Server and Access forums

Access is telling me it can't append any of the records due to a key violation.

The query:

INSERT INTO dbo_Colors ( NameColorID, Application, Red, Green, Blue )
SELECT Colors_Access.NameColorID, Colors_Access.Application, Colors_Access.Red, Colors_Access.Green, Colors_Access.Blue
FROM Colors_Access;

Colors_Access is linked from another MDB and dbo_Colors is linked from SQL Server 2000.

There are no indexes or foreign contraints on the SQL table. I have no relationships on the dbo_ table in my MDB. The query works if I append to another Access table. The datatypes all match between the two tables though the dbo_ tables has two additional fields not refrenced in the query.

I can manually append the records using cut and paste with no problems.

I have tried re-linking the tables.

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Brad

Capturing Record Count For A Table In Oracle And Saving It In A Table In SQL Server
I would like to find out how to capture record count for a table in oracle using SSIS and then writing that value in a SQL Server table.



I understand that I can use a variable to accomplish this task. Well first issue I run into is that what import statement do I need to use in the design script section of Script Task. I see that in many examples following statement is used for SQL Server databases:

Imports System.Data.SqlClient



Which Import statement I need to use to for Oracle database. I am using a OLE DB Connection.



any idea?

Hi,I would have used the aspnet membership tool to auto-create all the ASP.NET membership tables.  However, the hosting company don't allow remote connections which meant I had to create the tables by hand, scripting the tables using script to CREATE using management studio.However, I noticed one of the tables has data without any users: aspnet_SchemaVersions, which causes an error when trying to log onto my site.The fix is to make sure the table has the 4-5 rows of data in it (which is missing off the live server).  Its just a few rows of data, but I want to script the inserts for each row so I don't have to type them in using myLittleAdmin (the host's web version of management studio). Can anyone point me in the right direction?

MSSQL Server 7.0: How To Update A Column In One Table With Values From Another Table
This may be simple but I'm stumped.

I have 2 tables- tableA and tableB.

Each table has basically the same columns and rows with some variations.

The common keys of both tables are employee ID. There are more employees listed in tableA than there are in tableB.

The phone numbers in tableA are incorrect, but they are correct in tableB.

How can I update tableA to have tableB's phone numbers wherever the employee ID field is the same for both tables?

I've been playing around with an update statement, and select statements, but I can't figure out the syntax to update one column using values from another table without appending or overwriting all of the other columns in tableA. I need to keep ALL values in tableA the same except for the phone number column.


Your help is GREATLY appreciated.

Altering Table Definition On A Linked Server Table.
SQL Server 7.0 (SP1)
Error:
------
OLE DB provider 'SQLOLEDB' supplied inconsistent metadata. An extra column was supplied during execution that was not found at compile time.

A column was deleted from the a table on the linked server and now this message appears when using the linked server definition to access the table. Deleting/Recreating the Linked Server has no effect. I found an earlier note on this...but it just kind of ended with no resolution. Anyone have any thoughts on this now.

Thanks for any input.

The OLE DB Provider &"MSDAORA&" For Linked Server &"....&" Does Not Contain The Table &"COUNTRY&". The Table Either Does Not Exist Or The Current User Does Not Have Permissions On That Table.
I am using SQL Server 2005 and trying to create a linked server on Oracle 10. I used the commands below:
EXEC sp_addlinkedserver
@server = 'test1',
@srvproduct = 'Oracle',
@provider = 'MSDAORA',
@datasrc = 'testsource'
exec sp_addlinkedsrvlogin
@rmtsrvname = 'test1',
@useself = 'false',
@rmtuser='sp',
@rmtpassword='sp'
 
When I execute
select * from test1...COUNTRY
I get the error. "The OLE DB provider "MSDAORA" for linked server "...." does not contain the table "COUNTRY". The table either does not exist or the current user does not have permissions on that table."
The 'sp' user I am connecting is the owner of the table. What could be the problem ?
Thanks a lot.

Need To Show SQL Server Table Records In A Second Table
I am using the default ASPNETDB.MDF database for a project in SSE 2005 and VWD 2005. I need to use the UserName field from the aspnet_Users table as a foreign key in another table I have in the database. I am doing this so that I can grab data generated from additional fields that I'm adding to the membership registration wizard. However, I am obviously missing some steps since the user name doesn't show up in my second table. What should I do besides creating a relationship between the two fields and tables? Should I be writing some sort of SQL statement to accomplish this?

Create Temp Table On Linked Server From Local Server
Hi,

I would like to join two tables: one on a local server which I have admin access to and another server which I only have read access. The local table is very small, but the remote table is very large.

If I look at Query Analyzer's execution plan, it appears that the join will be done locally (i.e. the entire table is transferred from the remote server and then joined to my local table). Is there a way to create a temp table using linked servers, transfer my small local table to the remote server and then perform the join on the remote server? In the past, I have been able to use openquery to restrict the data to a small subset that is transferred but the local table is a little too large for that.

I appreciate any advice / guidance anyone can offer me!

Copy Data In Sql Server Table A To B On Same Server - Identical Schemas
Greetings,

I have two SQL Server tables on the same server and in the same database. I'll call them table A and table B. They have identical schemas. I need to insert all rows in table A into table B. (Don't laugh - this is just for testing and long run the tables will reside on different servers.)

Can someone please tell me the correct task to use for this and the connection type I need for both the source and destination?

Thanks,

Black Cat Bone

Copying Table Data From SQL Server 2005 To SQL Server 2000 - Very Slow When Using OLEDB Source And Destination Sources?
An SSIS package to transfer data from a DB instance on SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2000 is extremely slow. The package uses an OLEDB Source to OLEDB Destination for data transfer which is basically one table from sql server 2005 to sql server 2000. The job takes 5 minutes to transfer about 400 rows at night when there is very little activity on the server. During the day the job almost always times out.

On SQL Server 200 instances the job ran in minutes in the old 2000 package.

Is there an alternative to this. Tranfer Objects task does not work as there is apparently a defect according to Microsoft. Please let me know if there is any other option other than using a Execute 2000 package task or using an ActiveX Script to read records from one source and to insert them into the destination source, which I am not certain how long it might take and how viable will that be?

Any inputs will be much appreciated.

Thanks,

MShah

How Do I Realize A Query From Sql Server To A Table In A Mysql Server
Hello, my name is Daniel, I'm currently trying to access the data contained in a table that is in a database called ahee, this table is in a mysql server but I'm working in sql server.



I've tryed using a linked server created in sql database in this way:

AccessToAhee is the name of the linked server alias.

ahee is the name of the db, also is the remote user

192.168.100.100 is the ip of the mysql server



EXEC sp_addlinkedserver @server = 'AccessToAhee'

,@datasrc = 'ahee' -- or 192.168.100.100 in other tests

,@srvproduct = 'MSDASQL'

,@provider = 'MSDASQL'

,@provstr = '

Provider=MSDASQL;Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};

Server=192.168.100.100;Port=3306;Option=16384;Stmt=;Database=ahee;Uid=ahee;Pwd=ahee'



Later, I execute:

sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname = 'AccessToAhee'

,@useself = 'false'

,@locallogin = 'sa'

,@rmtuser = 'ahee'

,@rmtpassword = 'password'



I though that it will work, but if I execute a query like

select top 1 *

from [AccessToAhee].[ahee]..[table1]

it starts but never finishes.



I don't know if I've configured something wrong or where the problem is.

Ah, I almost forget it, I'm using SLQ Server 2005.



I'd thank any help received. Blessings.

Moving One Table From One Server To Another Server Using Import/export?
I have two databases on two different servers(an old hosting solution and a new). I need to get all the data from one server to the other but I have no clue as how to do it with MS SQL Server Management Studio Express.

I can easily make the create table scripts that will allow me to create the tables on the new server but what about all the data. I wondered if there is some way to export and import data from one server to another?

With the old SQL Enterprise Manager I was able to import or export as I saw fit but I can't seem to find anything like this with the express manager.

Anyone has any advise as I would like to avoid coding somekind of export program myself,


Many kind regards

Weinreich

DTS Question - Copy Table From SQL Server To Non-SQL Server
I'm breaking into SQL 2000, and have completed a DTS package that imports and massages a file and creates a table with about 200M records.

Now I want to add a process that will export the table to a directory on a Windows 2000 server, in a format such as Access, dBase, or someting else, to make the table available for users who do not have assces to SQL 2000.

I'm having a problem deciding which DTS 'Task' should be used. I've tried several, but haven't stumbled on the correct one, or if I have, haven't realized it because of error messages.

Any tips to get me started will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Randy
