Newbie How To Create Temp Table And Populate


Sorry guys I know this is easy but I've been looking for about an hour for a straight forward explanation.
I want to store a user's wish list while they browse the site, then they can send me an enquiry populated with their choices.
Basically, a shopping cart!
I thought of using session variables and string manipulations but I am more comfortable with DB queries.
a simple 4 column table would cover everything.
SQL server and VBScript
Thanks

&"Column Name Or Number Of Supplied Values Does Not Match Table Definition&" When Trying To Populate Temp Table
Hello,

I am receiving the following error:

Column name or number of supplied values does not match table definition

I am trying to insert values into a temp table, using values from the table I copied the structure from, like this:

SELECT TOP 1 * INTO #tbl_User_Temp FROM tbl_User
TRUNCATE TABLE #tbl_User_Temp

INSERT INTO #tbl_User_Temp EXECUTE UserPersist_GetUserByCriteria @Gender = 'Male', @Culture = 'en-GB'

The SP UserPersist_GetByCriteria does a
"SELECT * FROM tbl_User WHERE gender = @Gender AND culture = @Culture",
so why am I receiving this error when both tables have the same
structure?

The error is being reported as coming from UserPersist_GetByCriteria on the "SELECT * FROM tbl_User" line.

Thanks,
Greg.

I Can't Create A Temp Table
Hi all!I have a problem with a temp table.I start creating my table:bdsqlado.execute ("CREATE TABLE #MyTable ...")There is no error. The sql string has been tested and when it'sexecuted in the sql query analyzer it really creates the table.After creating the table, I execute an insert statement:bdsqlado.execute ("INSERT INTO #MyTable VALUES(...) "It returns an error like this: "Invalid Object Name #MyTable"I don't understand what's wrong. If I execute both sql sentences inthe SQL Query Analyzer it works perfectly.I use the same connection to execute both statements and I don't closeit before the INSERT is executed.I think it may be something related to dynamic properties of theconnection, but I'm not sure. It's just an idea.Please I need help.Thanks a lot,

How Can I Create A Temp Table On A Linked Server?
Hello

I have a local SQL2005 server with a linked SQL2000 server. I would like to know how to create a temporary table in the remote server in such a way that I can make an inner join as follows; my idea is to optimized a distributed query by doing so:

create table #myRemoteTempTable

insert into #myRemoteTempTable
select * from myLocalTable

update myRemoteTable
set
Value=#myRemoteTempTable.Value
from myRemoteTable
inner join #myRemoteTempTable on #myRemoteTempTable.ID=myRemoteTable.ID

I would like to know what datatypes SQL used when creating #customers.

Thank you for all the help.

Create Temp Table/loop Through Records
Hi all

I'm new to sql and could do with some help resolving this issue.

My problem is as follows,

I have two tables a BomHeaders table and a BomComponents table which consists of all the components of the boms in the BomHeaders table.

The structure of BOMs means that BOMs reference BOMs within themselves and can potentially go down many levels:

In a simple form it would look like this:

LevelRef: BomA

1component A
1component B
1Bom D
1component C


What i would like to do is potentially create a temporary table which uses the BomReference as a parameter and will loop through the records and bring me back every component from every level

Which would in its simplest form look something like this

LevelRef: BomA

1......component A
1......component B
1......Bom D
2.........Component A
2.........Component C
2.........Bom C
3............Component F
3............Component Z
1......component C

I would like to report against this table on a regular basis for specific BomReferences and although I know some basic SQL this is a little more than at this point in time i'm capable of so any help or advice on the best method of tackling this problem would be greatly appreciated.

also i've created a bit of a diagram just in case my ideas weren't conveyed accurately.

200, 1
Order Table:  OrderID, Detail

Assuming each customer always orders 2 items. I need to create a SQL query that shows as following (a view or a temp table is OK). How do I do that?

 
 CustomerID, Order Detail1, Order Detail2

How Do I Create A Temp Table As The Beginning Of A Process Flow?
Hi
Folx,
I
am new to SQL Server and I am struggling.

Versions:
Microsoft
SQL Server Integration Services Designer Version
9.00.1399.00





Microsoft
SQL Server Management Studio 9.00.1399.00













I
would like to
01.
create a temp table
02.
load the temp table from a flat file
03.
insert into a destination table the rows from the temp table where NOT EXIST the
primary key of the destination table.



ISSUES:



Flat
File Source will not accept that a resource will be available that does not yet
exist (the temp table)



I
set the Flat File Source to €œIgnore Failure€? and ran the package. It ran with
warnings but did not insert the new rows.



The
€œIgnore Duplicates€? radio button is €œgrayed out€? because the index is clustered



Now
I could work around this thing by keeping a table just for purposes of this
process flow. I am opposed to that philosophically and would prefer to do this
in the way that I consider appropriate€¦is there a solution?



Thanks,
Bill

Best Practice: Use Values In WHERE Clause Or Create And Join Temp Table ?
Hi,
I am using a SQL back end to dynamically populate an asp.net report/page.
As the data I'm interrogating is created from a tree control, I'm having to use a recursive function to retrieve the data into a series of ID values. This all happens at the moment in a DataTable manipulated with c# code. So my ID values end up in this datatable.
 My problem is that I am then performing a crosstab query in SQL Server 2000 and these ID are required as part of that query.
 Should I create a temp table and join this into the query or should i feed in a series of ID values into a where clause?
 Any help gratefully appreciated.
Thanks.
John

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!

CREATE A Temp Table Via &"EXEC (@SQL)&"

RETURN ENDPRINT '*** Table Created ***'-- Test that the table was createdSELECT *, 'TEST' AS AnyField FROM #AllSubquestions The line PRINT @SQL produces this output in Query Analyzer (I added the line breaks for forum formatting):CREATE TABLE #AllSubquestions (Col1 VARCHAR(100), Col2 VARCHAR(10), Col3 VARCHAR(10), Col4 VARCHAR(10), Col5 VARCHAR(10), Col6 VARCHAR(10), Col7 VARCHAR(10), ShowOrder SMALLINT) However, the SELECT statement to test the creation of the table produces this error:*** Table Created ***Server: Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_SLIDE_CONCEPT_AllSubquestions, Line 73Invalid object name '#AllSubquestions'. It appears that the statement to create the table works, but once I try to access it, it doesn't recognize its existance. Any ideas?

URI Key Held In Seperate Table To Automatically Populate PK In Another Table.
Hi,
      I have a table for which I wish to keep the index€™s off in a separate table. The trouble being that the database has to keep legacy support for a bunch of Access Interfaces that use linked tables to the database.
 
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Tb_Students](
      [student_uri] [int] NOT NULL,
      [student_ref] [nvarchar](50) COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AS NULL,
      [fname] [nvarchar](18) COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AS NOT NULL,
      [sname] [nvarchar](25) COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AS NOT NULL
)
 
GO
 
 
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Ti_Student_Uri](
      [next_uri] [int] NOT NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO
 
I also have a stored procedure for getting the next URI due:
 
CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_get_next_Student_uri]
      -- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
           
(@uri integer output, @jump integer= 1)
AS
BEGIN
      -- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
      -- interfering with SELECT statements.
      SET NOCOUNT ON;
      BEGIN TRANSACTION
    -- Insert statements for procedure here
      SELECT @uri = next_uri
      FROM Ti_Student_Uri
      UPDATE Ti_Student_Uri
      set next_uri=next_uri+@jump
      WHERE next_uri = @uri
      if @@rowcount <> 1
      begin
      exec sp_get_next_Student_uri @uri output, @jump
      end
      commit transaction
END
 
Now as you can guess this is fine from my C# interface as this automatically grabs the next key from the URI table and populates the new tuple in Tb_Students. The access interface could do the same but I would rather not edit this client so I was wondering if what would be the best way to automatically insert the next key on a new record?
 
If it helps the access interface uses a view to access the Tb_Students and other tables.

Temp Table Vs Global Temp Table
I think this is a very simple question, however, I don't know the
answer. What is the difference between a regular Temp table
and a Global Temp table? I need to create a temp table within
an sp that all users will use. I want the table recreated each
time someone accesses the sp, though, because some of the
same info may need to be inserted and I don't want any PK errors.

thanks!!

Help For Newbie: How To Create An Autonumber
Hi guys/gals. An intro, I've just pick up some database basic skills and currently doing a simple project.

I really need advise on how do I create a field that can generate autonumbering for eg. scenario

There are 3 types of service_id like CTXXXX, GPXXXX, and STXXXX (where XXXX are running numbers). What I need is to have the XXXX auto generate and running. Also if I were to delete an old record for example CT0033, the latest number eg. CT1111 will not be changed to cover up for the missing CT0033.

I apologize if the description is a bit improper, but I'm new to this. Really appreciate anyone that can help. Thanks!! :o

How Do You Create ##Temp Tables If They Don't Exist, Use Them If They Do?
I have two SPs, call them Daily and Weekly. Weekly will always callDaily, but Daily can run on its own. I currently use a global temptable because certain things I do with it won't work with a local temptable or table variable.I have been trying to get code so that if the table already exists, itjust keeps going and uses it, but creates the temp table if it doesn'texist. Unfortunately, no matter how I try to do it, it always attemptsto create it, raising an error and breaking the code.create table ##load_file_log (id int identity(1,1),contentsvarchar(1000))insert into ##load_file_log (contents) values ('test record')IF object_id('tempdb..##load_file_log') IS not NULLprint 'exists'ELSEcreate table ##load_file_log (id int identity(1,1),contentsvarchar(1000))select * from ##load_file_logdrop table ##load_file_logIf I change it to IS NULL, the same error occurs (Server: Msg 2714,Level 16, State 1, Line 7There is already an object named '##load_file_log' in the database.)I have found one way to do it, but it seems a bit...clunky.IF object_id('tempdb..##load_file_log') IS NULLexec ('create table ##load_file_log (id int identity(1,1),contentsvarchar(1000))')I'll use that for now, but is there something I missed?Thanks.

SSIS Create Large Temp Files!!!
 

Hello,
 
I created a SSIS solution for reading data from dbase and storing them in SQL Server. In a ForEachDirectory-Loop up to one thousand dbase files are read and stored. The system where the packages are running has 16 GB RAM.
For the first few hundred dbase files everything goes fine, but then, the RAM seems not to suffice any more and a temp file is created (I changed the path in BufferTempStoragePath).
 
How can it be that there is a need to create temp files if there is so much RAM available?
Why is the RAM filled more and more during the SSIS package execution?
Is there anything I can do to release some of it? (it is running in a loop and there is no need to store all the data)
Could it be caused by dbase?? (I use Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider)
 
Another thing is that the temp file is not stored in the path I set in BufferTempStoragePath.
There are sufficient permissions set, but temp file is still created in user temp folder...
 
Any kind of help is very much appreciated!

Best Regards,
Stefan

How To Create A Recordset That Joins 3 Temp Tables
I have an stp where I want to return a Recordset via a SELECT that joins 3 temp tables...

Here's what the temp tables look like (I am being brief)...

CREATE TABLE #Employees (EmpID INTEGER, EmpName NVARCHAR(40))

CREATE TABLE #PayPeriods (PayPeriodIndex INTEGER, StartDate DATETIME, EndDate DATETIME)

CREATE TABLE #Statistics (EmpID INTEGER, PayPeriodIndex INTEGER, HoursWorked REAL)

The #Employees table is populated for all employees.

The #PayPeriods table is populated for each calandar week of the year (PayPeriodIndex=0 to 51).

The #Statistics table is populated from data within another permanent table.

Some employees do not work all 52 weeks.

Some employees do not work any of the 52 weeks.

So, the #Statistics table doesn't have all possible combinations of Employees and PayPeriods.

I want to return a Recordset for all possible combinations of Employees and PayPeriods...

Here's a SELECT that I have used...

SELECT e.EmpId, e.Name, pp.PayPeriodIndex, ISNULL(s.HoursWorked,0)

         FROM #Statistics s

        LEFT OUTER JOIN #Employees e....

        LEFT OUTER JOIN #PayPeriods pp ....

        WHERE s.EmpId = e.EmpId

             AND s.PayPeriodIndex = pp.PayPeriodIndex

I have had no luck with this SELECT.

Can anybody help???

TIA

Trigger To Populate Another Table.
Hi.I have a problem I hope someone can help me with.I have a database of events. Each event has a date and a duration(days).What I need to do is to be able to display search for events on someweb pages. My problem is that if an event is on say 15 nov 2004 andhas a duration of 3 days, at the moment if someone searches for the16th nov 2004 that event wont show up. To solve this what I have triedto do is put a trigger on my events table that populates another tableeach time a record is inserted. In the other table (orderedevents) anentry is added for each day specified in the duration field. I can thequery this table for the search. For example if this is added into theevents tableTitle: Event1Date: 15/11/2004Duration: 3Then this would be added to the orderedevents tableTitle: Event1Date: 15/11/2004Duration: 3Title: Event1Date: 16/11/2004Duration: 3Title: Event1Date: 17/11/2004Duration: 3This is what I have got so far. Someone kindly helped me with thisbefore but they had developed it on MySql, I'm using Sql Server and itdoesn't seem to work. All it does is add a blank row to OrderedEvents.Can anyone suggest any amendments that will make it work on SqlServer?CREATE Trigger TriggerInsertOrderedEventsON eventsFOR INSERTASSET NOCOUNT ONDECLARE @CountDuration int,@FixedDuration int,@eventdate datetime,@EventTitle varcharSET @CountDuration = 0SET @EventTitle = (SELECT EventTitle FROM inserted)SET @FixedDuration = (SELECT EventDuration FROM inserted)SET @EventDate = (SELECT EventDate FROM inserted)WHILE (@CountDuration <= @FixedDuration - 1)BEGININSERT OrderedEvents (Eventdate,EventDuration,EventTitle)VALUES(dateadd(day,@CountDuration,@EventDate),@Fix edDuration,@EventTitle)SET @CountDuration = @CountDuration + 1ENDSET NOCOUNT OFFThanks in advance.

LEFT JOIN @CategoryTable k ON k.ColID = a.ColID AND k.ColCategory = 'Reason:'

WHERE a.ColCategory = 'Order ID:'

***************************************

This statement parses. I can preview the data. I've tried to set up both an OLE DB destination to a SQL Server table and an MS Access table destination (Jet). In either case, the data will not populate the tables. I set up a Data Viewer, and no data appears in the Viewer. With the Access destination, I have the package set up to run in 32 bit mode.

If data appears in the preview, then why doesn't the data appear in the data viewer, and why will the data not populate either of the destination tables?

Thank you for your help!

How To Populate The Fact Table
databse name: bookorder

Realtions:

customer (customerid,l_name,f_name,city, district,country)
cust_order(orderid,orderdate,customerid)
order_detail(orderid,itemno,isbn,quantity)
book(isbn,title,edition_no,price)
author(authorid,name,surname)
book_author(authorid,isbn,authorseqno)


Now populate the datawarehouse name: book_orderdw
having fact table & three dimension tables given below from the above bookorder database

fact table

factsales(customerid,timeid,isbn,unit_price,discount_price,sales_quantity,sales_amount)

dimension tables

dimcustomer(customerid,l_name,f_name,city,district,country)
dimtime(timeid,orderdate,dayofweek, month, year)
dimbook(isbn,title,edition_no,price)

Now I have to populate the fact & dimension tables by writing sql scripts.
Now I have already populated the dimension tables by writing sql script,
But I have to populate the fact table taking into account, here I am facing problem in wriring sql script

(i) unit_price is taken from the book base table with reference to the isbn
(ii) sales_quantity is taken from the order_detail.quantity with reference to table cust_order(via orderid & orderdate)
(iii) discount_price is determined dependent on the quantity. if the quantity > 20 then discount 20 %(i.e discount_price = 0.8 * unit_price). if quantity < 10, no discount i.e normal price. if quantity between 10 and 20, discount 10%. Note that the quantity is determined based on each order of each customer, thus if the same book appears at multiple positions in an order, those positions shall be grouped together. This could happen because the pk of the order_detail table is order_id + item no, not order_id + isbn
(iv) sales_amount is sales_quantity * discount_price

Populate Field From Another Table
I have 2 tables in a parent->child relationship.  The primary key for the parent table is moving to a new column (that is an Identity).  I'd like to relink the tables using the identity field.
 
Here's the structure:
Parent
refid int (Identity)  - NEW PK
orderid char(9) - OLD PK
 
Child
orderdetailid int - PK
orderid char(9) - Old link to parent
refid int - New link to parent

 
I've populated refid in the parent.  I just need to populate the refid column in the child.  I have a VFP background.  In VFP I would have looped through the child, found the matching record in the parent, then transfered the data over.  I don' t have a clue how to do this in TSQL.

Populate Calendar Table
Hello all,
I would like to populate a calendar table similar to the one used in the foodmart2005 sample database. In this table the day of the week, month, and year are recorded as well as additional data which I do not require.
If possible I would like to populate the table with 10 years of data starting with 2007.
 
Secondly would 10 years of data make the table to large?
 
Thank you for any thoughts you may have.

How To Populate Table From Dropdown List?
Hi,I have table (tbl_a) that get it values form three Dropdown List and the PK of this table is FK in different table(tbl_b).Since tbl_a get its values from three Dropdown List the number of rows in this table is limited to the number of combinations the three Dropdown List is offer (in any case the number of raws in that table will be final).Assuming tbl_a and tbl_b are both empty.
The problem is that if i want to insert row to tbl_b i have to check first if there is a row that holds the values (or combination of values) i am getting from the Dropdown List in tbl_a .Then, if such row is exist i have to get the PK of that raw and insert it to tbl_b (as FK),if such row does not exist, i have to insert it and then get the PK of this row and insert it to tbl_b (as FK).
In the end, tbl_a will have all the combination the three Dropdown List can offer so checking if raw exist in this table will not be necessary.
In my opinion this is not effective way to do that.Can someone offer me better way to do it?
Thanks

How Do I Populate A Table With Data On Setup
Hi Guys,

My ASP.Net app is multilingual and all my translations are stored in seperate MSDE tables, for example, tblEN for English, tblES for Spanish and tblTH for Thai.

When I send the installation files to my clients, I get them to double click on 4 MS DOS batch files that use OSQL to run 4 scripts.....

1. DataBase&Tables.sql - creates the database and tables
2. Logins&Users.sql
3. StoredProcedures.sql
4. Permissions.sql

This worked great before my language table came along to spoil the party and I now need some way of getting the data stored in the language on my server into the table on the client.

If I export the data to a text file and then send it out with the rest of the installation files - what are my options for transferring the data into the table ?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Steve.

Trigger To Populate Table Or Database
Im a newbie with a sql table in a MSDE database that contains fields ofCustName, BrokerName, Type, Status.I am trying to write a trigger that does this:1. When a new record in a table is added, I would like the selectedfields to be copied to another table (call it Master).2. If that Master table already contains a record where the CustName =CustName, then simply ignore. If CustName does not match anything, thenadd the record to the Master TableIn other words, I am trying to create a table (or even a new database)that has unique records in it - making a master customer list.Any hints on how to get started on this?

Algorithm To Populate A Table With Finite Value Combinations
I need to populate a table which have 10 columns with four values. Each row should be a different combination of these four values and the columns can be null too. In other words how can I get all the different combinations for the 4 values that can be in 10 buckets. The final result column based on these values will be generated manually.

For example , I have for grades (P,F, WP, WF) and I have 8 terms and two exams. 8 terms and two exams can have any of the above four values. Based on these grades and terms and exams I need to generate a table which wil be used to determine the student final status Pass/Fail.

   What will be the best way to do this and how is it possible. Is there a T-SQL or C# program for this.

If I need to submit this in another forum please let me know.

Suspect Database Attempting To Populate Large Table
I am trying to load in to a new application's database to see if my load procedures will be able to handle the volume and how long I should plan on when I perform our cut over for production.  Unfortunately, trying to copy 5.4M rows from one staging table into a production processing table consistently leaves the database in a suspect status, usually stating to perform some type of disk consistency check utility.  It happens time after time, is there anything obvious that I could look at to see why this is happening?

Update Temp Table With Stored Procedure Joined With Table
Hello

Is it possible to insert data into a temp table with data returned from a stored procedure joined with data from another table?

insert #MyTempTable

exec [dbo].[MyStoredProcedure] @Par1, @Par2, @Par3

JOIN dbo.OtherTable...

I'm missing something before the JOIN command. The temp table needs to know which fields need be updated.

I just can't figure it out

Many Thanks!
