Function To Extract Delimited Data


I'd need to have a function that allows me to extract 'fields' from
within the string
I.E. (kinda pseudo code)
declare @foo as varchar(100)
set @foo = "Robert*Camarda*123 Main Street"
select EXTRACT(@foo, '*', 2) ; -- would return 'Camarda'
select EXTRACT(@foo, '*', 3) ;-- returns '123 Main Street'
select EXTRACT(@foo, '*', 0) ;-- would return entire string
select EXTRACT(@foo,'*' , 9) ;-- would return null

Extract( string, text delimiter, occurance)
Anyone have something like this as a user defined function in SQL?
TIA
Rob

Exporting Data To A Comma Delimited Text File, FORMAT Function
Hi. Im new to SQL and I need to export a SQL table as a comma delimited text file which is straight forward. However two of the fields are integers and I need these to be right justified with zero's.
In Access I would use something like format(columnname, "00000000") to get it to work, but SQL Server doesn't like this.
How can I do this?

Data Flow Task Error To Extract Data From Sql Server To Excel
Hi All,
 
I want to export data from SQL Server2005 to an Excel spreadsheet thru "Data Flow Task". I am using OLE DB for SQL Server for the source connection and a Connection To Excel as my destination source. The Excel spreadsheet (2003) exists and has the first row with column names. I don't have any warnings before trying to execute.
 
The SQL datable fileds are
i) ID - Int

ii) RefID
iii) txtRemarks - nvarchar(MAX)
iv) ddlWaterLevel - nvarchar(50)
 
While executing the tasks, I got the error
Error: 0xC0202025 at Data Flow Task, Excel Destination [427]: Cannot create an OLE DB accessor. Verify that the column metadata is valid.
Error: 0xC004701A at Data Flow Task, DTS.Pipeline: component "Excel Destination" (427) failed the pre-execute phase and returned error code 0xC0202025.


After analysing I found in the DataFlow --> Excel destination --> Advanced Editor for Excel Destination, the default data type for txtRemarks shows as "Unicode string [DT_WSTR]". But this is supposed to be "Unicode text stream [DT_NTEXT]". Even if I change the data type in the design time, It doesn't accept.
 
Please do help me out.

thanks

Extract Data From SQL 6.5
I need to get some data from an enormous, creaky old SQL 6.5 database.I know nothing about either the data schema (though I believe some sortof documentation exists), nor 6.5 for that matter, having come to SQLServer at 7.0.My clients need the data in comma delimited format.Please, can anyone suggest any possibilities? One thing that occurredto me might be to create an Access application, use an ODBC link to theSQL DB, and then leverage Access' not inconsiderable functionality toget the data out.Does anyone foresee any problems with this, or any better ways?Forever in your debt.Edward--The reading group's reading group:http://www.bookgroup.org.uk

Extract Data
I have the following data example,
Street
Forest Ridge Dr  
Whites St  
Alba Rd   

I wish to achieve the following,
Street           StreetSuffix
Forest Ridge   Dr  
Whites           St  
Alba               Rd
 
I have the following code
INSERT Addr2 (AddressID, LotNo, FlatNumber, HouseNum, Street, StreetSuffix, Locality,
       PostCode, [State])
SELECT LotNo, FlatNumber, HouseNum, SUBSTRING(Street, 1, (PATINDEX('% %', Street))),
 LTRIM(SUBSTRING(Street, (PATINDEX('% %', Street)), 20)), Locality, PostCode, [State]
FROM Addr1

But i get the following result which is no good!

Street   StreetSuffix
Forest    Forest
Whites   Whites
Alba      Alba
 

What am I doing wrong in the Street & StreetSuffix Functions above?
 

I have this working with a cursor but I'm trying to work out a set based solution as the cursor
takes way to long to complete.
 

In the Cursor I'm performing the code below per row of AddressID
SET @SpaceLength = (SELECT PATINDEX('% %', @Street))

SET @Suffix = (SELECT SUBSTRING(@Street, @SpaceLength, 20))

SET @Street = (SELECT SUBSTRING(@Street, 1, @SpaceLength))

Design Question Regarding Comma Delimited Data
Hi,

I'm trying to figure out if it's good design practice to have several pieces of data in a one column. I explain by example. Let's say you build a movie site. Each movie can belong to several categories. A movie can be Action, Adventure, Fantasy and Drama all at once. Assume a database table with all the movies and another table with all the categories. Now how would I associate one movie with several categories? Would it be OK if I add a Category field in the movie table and then add several categories in that, delimited by commas? Sort of like below:

movie_title                  | movie_rating |        category_name--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pirates of the Carribean |      PG-13        | Action,Adventure,FantasyEvil Dead                     |      Unrated      | Horrorand so on ...I can then query the database with a LIKE query if I want to select all movies of a certain category. Personally, I don't like this approach to much, but I can't think of another way to achieve this. Well, there is one other, but I like that one even less. I could create another table that links each movie to a category, but his way each movie with several categories would get a new row. Using the table above, Pirates would get three rows in that table. One with Action, one with Adventure and one with Fantasy. Get my drift? It all seems counter-intuitive. Thoughts? 
Thanks :o)

Put Delimited Data In Unconventional Format In Dataset
hi,

Im interfacing with an app that imports/exports data in a very specific hash-delimited format
like this:

#column1=Value1#column2=Value2#column3=Value3 etc.

How do i import this into a dataset so i can in my db.

Obviously ideal way would be to use the Jet text provider, but im not sure if the schema.ini can be setup to deal with this kind of data.

If anyone has ANY way of me getting this data into dataset please help.

Export SQL Data To Comma Delimited Csv File
Hi,

I was wondering if anyone might be able to say how I could export data captured via a view into a comma delimited csv file.

So far I have tried using BCP to access my view and export to a CSV file, but the CSV file isn't comma delimited.  I tried finding examples but couldn't see what I should do to have a comma delimited file.  (I'm getting a bit tired now, so I might be missing something!)

I have created a bat file containing the following code:

bcp "TestDB..GA_FSM_DCSF_Extract" out "C:GA_FSM_DCSF_Extract.csv" -fexport.fmt -e "C:error.log"  -c -T -S srckvzg2j -r


Any help / pointers would be much appreciated.

Data Extract Question
Hi, I'm hoping someone has an idea or two on this topic. 
Basically I have three tables of data say tContact, tQuestion, tAnswer

tContact
-----------
ContactID
Email
Name

tQuestion
------------
QuestionID
Question

tAnswer
------------
QuestionID
ContactID
Answer

I need to extract the data for the client and they would like to see
the data with one line per contact, but showing every answer to every
question... they would like the data formatted like this:

ContactID, Email, Name, Question1Answer, Question2Answer, Question3Answer, Question4Answer, etc........

Obviously to get the data I cansimply do an outerjoin to get all
contact data then all questions, and answers that exist... but that
will obviously return tabular data with one row per each
answer...  Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this using just
SQL?  I can pull the data and write a function that spits it out
to text using the Stringbuilder class and some logic, but I'm thinking
this must be possible in SQL natively... any help would be more than
appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Parse Delimited Data In Column To Multiple Columns
I'm working on a sales commission report that will show commissions for up to 5 sales reps for each invoice. The invoice detail table contains separate columns for the commission rates payable to each rep, but for some reason the sale srep IDs are combined into one column. The salesrep column may contain null, a single sales rep id, or up to five slaes rep IDs separated by the '~' character.

So I'd like to parse the rep IDs from a single column (salesreplist) in my invoice detail table (below) to multiple columns (RepID1, RepID2, RepID3, RepID4,RepID5) in a temp table so I can more easily calculate the commission amounts for each invoice and sales rep.

Here is my table:

CREATE TABLE invcdtl(
invoicenum int,
salesreplist [text] NULL,
reprate1 int NULL,
reprate2 int NULL,
reprate3 int NULL,
reprate4 int NULL,
reprate5 int NULL,
)

Here is some sample data:

1 A 0 0 0 0 0
2 0 0 0 0 0
3 I~~~~ 15 0 0 0 0
4 A~B 5 5 0 0 0
5 I~F~T~K~G 5 5 2 2 2
6 A~B

As you can see, some records have trailing delimiters but some don't. This may be a result of the application's behavior when multiple reps are entered then removed from an invoice. One thing for sure is that when there are multiple reps, the IDs are always separated by '~'

Can anyone suggest a solution?

How To Extract Data From A Concatenated Field

Modifying Data From Extract Before Import
Hi all,



Having some fun with an excel import.



I have a excel sheet that has data that needs to be UpSert'ed into 2
different tables. In addition, I need to use a value in the spreadsheet
to determine the PK from a reference data table, for one of the UpSert
oprations.



That is all working now.



The thing I'm struggling with is something I am sure is quite simple -
but I'm not seeing a solution from attempts, googling or BOL.



2 of the columns I receive have either nothing, or X in them. The columns they go into are defined as BIT, NOT NULL.



So, in SQL it would be something relatively simple like:



CASE

  When IsAvailable = 'X' then 1

  When IsAvailable is null then 1

  ELSE 0

end



But I don't know how to do this to data that was in a spreadsheet, and
now is a resultset being handed from a task to another task.



to outline my current solution:

---- table 1 = this all works -------------

Excel Source --> MultiCast (For Table 1)-->Data conversion for
table1-->:Sort for Table1--> Merge Join for table 1 (left Outer
join) as 'left' leg

Table1 Source --> Sort Table1 --> Merge Join for table 1 (left Outer join) as 'right' leg



Merge Join for table 1 --> Conditional Lplit for table1

Conditional Split for table1 (table1 source PK is null) -->Insert Into Table1 Destination

Conditional Split for table1 (table1 source PK is not null) -->Update Table1 OLE DB Command

---- table 2 = this needs to be able to convert X/NULL to BIT -------------

MultiCast (For Table 2)-->Copy Column for Table2 -->Data
Conversion for Table 2-->table3 lookup to get FK-->Sort for
Table2 merge-->Merge Join for table 2 (left outer join) as 'left' leg

Table2 Source --> Sort Table2 --> Merge Join for table 2 (left outer join) as 'right' leg



Merge Join for table 2 --> Conditional split for table 2

Conditional split for table 2(table2 source PK in null) -->insert into table 2

Conditional split for table 2(table2 source PK in not null) -->update table 2 ole db command

-----------------------------------------



Now, if I correct the spreadsheet to have 0's and 1's in the two
column, then the process above works. But I cannot (yet) force business
to do that.

If tried to use SQL Command for the excel source, but there is limited
functionality on the command - I cannot do SQL coalese, isnull or case
statements, which would allow me to resolve that data at source.

I've tried to use derived columns to alter the columns. I think that
the REPLACE (IsAvailable, VariableContainingX,VariableContaining1)
might work to change X's to 1, but that doesn't resolve the NULL issue.

I've tried to use a script component to handle the conversion - which
REALLY feels like a bad way to do this - the .Net script is wrote was:

-------------.net script  code-------------

Imports System

Imports System.Data

Imports System.Math

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts



Public Class ScriptMain

    Inherits UserComponent



    Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)

        If Not (Row.EndOfRowset) Then

            If
(Row.IsDotComVanEnabled_IsNull) Or (Row.IsDotComVanEnabled.Equals("X"))
Then

                Row.IsDotComVanEnabled = "1"

            End If

            If
(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled_IsNull) Or
(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled.Contains("X")) Then

                Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled = "1"

            End If

            Row.NextRow()

        End If



    End Sub



End Class

------------------------------------------

I also tried it like this:

----------------1st draft .Net script code--------

Imports System

Imports System.Data

Imports System.Math

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts



Public Class ScriptMain

    Inherits UserComponent



    Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)

            If
(Row.IsDotComVanEnabled_IsNull) Or (Row.IsDotComVanEnabled.Equals("X"))
Then

                Row.IsDotComVanEnabled = "1"

            End If

            If
(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled_IsNull) Or
(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled.Contains("X")) Then

                Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled = "1"

            End If



    End Sub



End Class





-------------------------------------------------



Those both threw the following error;



-------------error information-----------------

Script Component has encountered an exception in user code:

Extract Exchange 2003 Data
I have searched everywhere for an answer and seems I am either blind or there is no simple solution. Basically I have a need to report on data stored in an Exchange 2003 data store. There is mention of a OLE DB for Exchange 2000 but nothing for Exchange 2003. For example, A company report on time spent on various categories in a staff's calendar, etc. I would like to use SQl 2005 SSIS to extract and reporting services to report. Why is this so difficult? I come from a Lotus Notes  / Domino background and there are numerous articles and ways to do this? Please can some MS guru please give me some direction on where to look?

Extract Pieces Of Data From Excel
In Integration Services I am trying to extract pieces of information from Excel. I would like to select just information from one cell but when I do that I get an error. What I'm typing in is:

SELECT *, Now() FROM [Sheet1$A1]

Here is the error:
------------------------------
Error at Data Flow Task [Excel Source [170]]: An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005.
An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft JET Database Engine" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'Sheet1$A1'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly.".

Error at Data Flow Task [Excel Source [170]]: Unable to retrieve column information from the data source. Make sure your target table in the database is available.
------------------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
Exception from HRESULT: 0xC020204A (Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSPipelineWrap)
------------------------------

The only way that I can get the contents of one cell is if I type in a range and indicate in the Connection Manager that the first row has column names. Given that, to get the contents of A2 I am having to type in:

SELECT * , Now() FROM [Sheet1$A1:A2]

This gets me what I want but by using this method I am never able to get information in Row 1. That could pose a problem in the future and I'm sure that there is a better way to do it.

So my question is, how can I get something from a single cell without having to name a range?

Two other questions I have are: 1. Is there a way to get information in one statement from cells that aren't adjacent to one another. For instance, if I wanted the contents of just A2 and C4?; 2. Is there a way that you could select a named range from Excel? That would be good because then I could have Excel control the range and then just call that.

I know this is a lot but I have an impending project where I'll need to do much of this and I have only ever imported the contents of an entire sheet and not specific cells from a worksheet.

Thanks.

Sqlserver2005 Limitation To Extract TIMESTAMP Data
Hi,

I have created one Linked server to fetch the data from Oracle server.

I have two tables at Oracle server

1. EMP_Tbl1 (Emp_Cd VARCHAR2(10))

2. EMP_Tbl2 (EMP_ID NUMBER, Emp_Cd VARCHAR2(10))

I can connect to EMP_Tbl1 table through my linked server at SQL Server 2005.

WHILE I cann't connect to EMP_tbl2.


ERROR:
The OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "Linked_Facets" supplied inconsistent metadata for a column. The column "EMPID" (compile-time ordinal 1) of object ""SYSTEM"."EMP_ASH"" was reported to have a "DBTYPE" of 5 at compile time and 130 at run time.

OR "The OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "Linked_Facets" supplied invalid metadata for column "JOINING_DATE". The data type is not supported."

Reason:
EXECsp_addlinkedserver
@server='Linked_Facets'
,@srvproduct='ORACLE'
,@provider='OraOLEDB.Oracle'--'OraOLEDB.Oracle'
,@datasrc='ameri.corp.ads.valuelabs.net'

I am using 'OraOLEDB.Oracle' as the provider. This has its own limitations. How to conquer this?

Extract Data From ACCESS Database With Pwd Via ODBC
Hi,

My task is simple, I want to use the execute sql task editor to grab a value from a database in Access and put it in a variable. The connection is via ODBC and the access database is protected by a password.

 I've done all the preliminary stuff such as running profiler to make sure that the package is getting the call to the database, setting up the ResultSet to be "single row" in the general tab, mapped the Result Set correctly, but nothing works. I get the same error every time.

This is my sql command:

select  count(FingerPrintID) as FingerPrint

from Employee

Result Set is set up like this:

Result Name: FingerPrint ; Variable Name: User:: varDataset 

Here is the error I get:

Error: 0xC002F309 at Execute SQL Task, Execute SQL Task: An error occurred while assigning a value to variable "varDataset": "Value does not fall within the expected range.".

My variable is set up as a Int16. 

Please help!!!!!

If you could provide step by step example's that would really make my day.

 

Thanks,

Lawrence

Unable To Extract Data From Excel Columns
We have some Excel worksheets that have double header rows, so we do not specifically tell the connection manager to treat the first row as header, and instead use customised queries to gather the data out

SELECT F1 As Station, F2 As MonthCommencing, F3 As BuyType,
F4 As CAI, F5 As C30I,
F6 As CAGRP, F7 As C30GRP,
F15 As PAI, F16 As P30I,
F17 As PAGRP, F18 As P30GRP
FROM [Monthly Data$]
WHERE F1 IS NOT NULL
AND F1 <> 'Station' -- This is the actual column header value in the second row.

The thing is, if the very first data row for Column 4 (F4) is NULL, any subsequent data in other below records that may have actual (decimal) data will also be seen as NULL. Only if the first data row has F4 filled with proper value will the below rows reveal their content.

Does anybody know how to get Excel to read the data properly?

SSIS -Data Extract To Flat File
I want to extract data from a table (based on a query) to a flat file.
 
So I have an OLE DB Source (data access mode SQL command) and then a flat file destination.  The extract works finem except it extracts all table rows as one line in the file - whereas i want a separate line per DB record - what am I missing?
 
Thanks for any help!

Normalizing Flat Data / Extract One Of Each Type
I'm new to SSIS and have run into a problem I'm hoping someone can help me with.

Basically, I have a flat file that looks something like:

ID,Type,Description,Results
1,Test1,This is a test,5
2,Test1,This is also a 1 test,7
3,Test1,This is also a 1 test,13
4,Test2,This is a second test,14
5,Test2,This is also a second test,18


I'm trying to normalize the data by extracting out individual rows that have the same "Type" column value. So what I want is to extract each unique type and description into a separate table. This would give me two new rows, one for a type of Test1, and one for a type of Test2, with the descriptions. Does this make sense? Then I could relate the individual results to these test types. In my scenario, I don't care which description is used; I just want to take the first description that shows up with the associated "Type."

Does anyone have any idea of how I could go about doing this? I could pull out all unique "Types" from the rows with the Aggregate transformation, but I'm trying to figure out how to get the description that goes along with it.

Thanks,

Brian
