Reporting Services :: Top N As Parameter In SSRS Report Populated By SSAS Cube?

May 21, 2015

I have an SSRS report that gets its data from an SSAS cube, and it essentially displays a list of students and absences. Everything works fine.

But the users only want to see the top N students with the highest absences. For example, today they want to see the top 100, but during summer vacation, they only want to see the top 5.

Is there a way to add this parameter to the SSRS report? So if I select "5" from the dropdown parameter, it will show the top 5 absences.

The query that I use to populate the report is something simple:

SQL Security :: How To Set Permissions For A User On X And Y Schema

Oct 22, 2015

I need to provide a User with below permissions:

1. Ability to read and write records in tables in both the X schema and Y schema
2. Ability to read metadata about objects in the X and Y schema
3. Ability to execute stored procedures in the X and Y schema
4. Ability to create and update the necessary schema objects used by X, including but not limited to tables, views, and indexes
5. CREATE FUNCTION permission
6. ALTER and EXECUTE permissions on the X schema
7. VIEW DEFINITION permission on the X and Y schemas to enable view export. 

For the point 1, I will assign db_datareader,db_datawriter database roles to the user

For the point 2, when I have searched web, I found out ReadDefinition permission should be granted. I could find only viewDefinition but not ReadDefinition.

For the point 3, 'USE DataBaseName GRANT EXECUTE TO User; Go' - does this sql suffice?

For the point 4, I am not sure what should be done.

For the point 5, 'USE DataBaseName GRANT CREATE FUNCTION TO User; Go' - I guess this will work

For the point 6, Can I use same SQL as point 3 including ALTER ?

For the point 7, 'USE DataBaseName GRANT VIEW DEFINITION TO User; Go'

For / While Loop - Enter Data Into A Table

Feb 19, 2015

I want to, for each month of the year 2014 say, to create a loop that will enter data into a table.

Right now I have:

Select [Member Number],
sum(case when [Receipt Date]='2014/01/01' then Amount else 0 end) as [Rec 2014/01/01]
From [Receipts Table]
Group by [Member Number]
Insert into [Receipts 2014/01/01]

[Code] ....

Instead I would just like to do something like…

Declare i date
For i=2014/01/01 to 2014/12/01

Select [Member Number],
sum(case when [Receipt Date]=i then Amount else 0 end) as [Rec +i]

From [Receipts Table]
Group by [Member Number]
Insert into [Receipts + i]

Don’t know if this is at all possible?

SQL Server 2012 :: Adding RowID To Existing Table - Inconsistent Results

May 6, 2015

I am getting inconsistent results when BULK INSERTING data from a tab-delimited text file. As part of my testing, I run the same code on the same file again and again, and I get different results every time! I get this on SQL 2005 and SQL 2012 R2.

We have an application that imports data from a spreadsheet. The sheet contains section headers with account numbers and detail rows with transactions by date:

AAAA.1234 /* (account number)*/
1/1/2015 $150 First Transaction
1/3/2015 $24.233 Second Transaction
1/1/2015 $350 Third Transaction
1/3/2015 $24.233 Fourth Transaction

My Import program saves this spreadsheet at tab-delimited text, then I use BULK INSERT to bring the data into a generic table full of varchar(255) fields. There are about 90,000 rows in each day's data; after the BULK INSERT about half of them are removed for various reasons.

Next I add a RowID column to the table with the IDENTITY (1,1) property. This gives my raw data unique row numbers.

I then run a routine that converts and copies those records into another holding table that's a copy of the final destination table. That routine parses though the data, assigning the account number in the section header to each detail row. It ends up looking like this:

AAAA.1234 1/1/2015 $150 First Purchase
AAAA.1234 1/3/2015 $24.233 Second Purchase
BBBB.5678 1/1/2015 $350 Third Purchase
BBBB.5678 1/3/2015 $24.233 Fourth Purchase

My technique: I use a cursor to get the starting RowID for each Account Number: I then use the upper and lower RowIDs to do an INSERT into the final table. The query looks like this:

SELECT RowID, SUBSTRING(RowHeader, 6,4) + '.UBC1' AS AccountNumber
FROM GenericTable
WHERE RowHeader LIKE '____.____%'

Results look like this:

But every time I run the routine, I get different numbers!

Needless to say, my results are not accurate. I get inconsistent results EVERY TIME. Here is my code, with table, field and account names changed for business confidentiality.

TRUNCATE TABLE GenericImportTable;
BULK INSERT GenericImportTable FROM ''
SELECT RowID, SUBSTRING(RowHeader, 6,4) + '.UBC1' AS AccountNumber
FROM GenericImportTable
WHERE RowHeader LIKE '____.____%'

Replication :: Undistributed Transactions Build Up At Same Time Each Night

May 12, 2015

There is a database "Foo" sitting on server "A". There is a database "Bar" sitting on server "B". A.Foo publishes a subset of its schema. B.Bar subscribes to A.Foo's publication. The distribution database is on "B" (B.distributor). This a push subscription (transactions are pushed to the subscriber from the distributor). Every day (including the weekend) I get the following alert:

"5/12/2015 3:53:16 AM, Unsubscribed Transactions (Count) on "B" is Warning.

SQL Server instance "B" has 636771 unsubscribed replication transactions received by the Distributor and not received by a Subscriber.

Unsubscribed Transactions (Count): Number of replication transactions received by the Distributor and not received by a Subscriber."

The number of transactions will vary. The alerts will be sent between 1:20 AM (EST) and 3:30 AM (EST). I'm trying to figure out what is causing the backup of transactions. I assume the issue precedes the alerts by 30-minutes or so.

There are no backups occurringNothing is blocking the distributor agent in the subscription databaseJob activity is at a minimum; the few jobs running run throughout the dayThe machine has plenty of resources -- CPU, RAM, etc.The publisher database shows no signs of stress.

Select Most Recent By Date Plus Other Criteria

Feb 1, 2015

I have the following query that should return the most recent FormNote entry for a work order where the note begins with "KPI". However if someone decides to a more recent note, it selects that one, even if it doesn't begin with "KPI".

I would like it to return the most recent record that ALSO begins with "KPI". How can I correct this?

Select wh.worknumber, wh.date_created, wh.itemcode, wn.TextEntry as [Notes] from worksorderhdr wh left join

(select ID, WorksOrder,[CreationDate], TextEntry
select ROW_NUMBER()over(partition by worksorder order by [CreationDate] desc) OID,*
from FormNotes
)orders where orders.OID=1 ) wn on wn.WorksOrder = wh.worknumber where TextEntry like 'KPI%'

Sample results below, see line 5 - this record should not have been selected as there is a record beginning with "KPI" for that work order, but it is dated before this one.
