ASP Returning Null Sized Field From MS SQL Database

Jul 20, 2005

We currently have an SQL db running on a web server.
One of these fields is a large(ish) amount of text data up to 400
characters and has been cast variously as varchar, nchar and text
type to overcome a problem. The problem appears to be in retrieving
the data via ASP. I understand that ASP can handle string data of this
size so I am okay there.
When the records are retrieved from the db, the data string length =0.
I know the data is there because I have written a Delphi data manager
which interrogates the db and shows all records and their contents.
So if ASP can handle strings this size and the data is there, why do I
get a data length of zero bytes returned when I interrogate the record
set?
Whichever way I cast this field I get the same result.

I know the code is sound as it works locally through a MS SQL server
on my PS.
Anyone have this problem or know what's causing it? I have logged a
support call with my hosting company, but they haven't replied as yet
and I am stuck on an urgent project.

Any suggestions?

Cheers
Grant

Sql SELECT Returning NULL On DateTime Field

Aug 8, 2006

Hi there ;
This Problem is goin to make me crazy!
I've got a table with couple of fields, 2 of them are DateTime, in Sql Express 05 .
I used asp.net 2.0 to insert datetime values, directly,  using sth like DateTime.Now.ToString() .
i use 2 selects as follows :
1)select * from X where  Date1='8/9/2006 11:17:41 AM'
2)select * from X where  Date2='8/9/2006 11:17:41 AM'
#1 is OK, but the second one returns a row with all columns set to NULL .
(X is the name of the table)
Thanks in advance

Searching A Database Field For Null Value

Feb 27, 2008

Hi,
I am building a website in ASP.net C# for a university project, and would like to search a table (Member) for a field (UserName) using a session variable Session["sUserName"]. If that field is null, then I would like to insert that session variable into the field to start to create a new user. However, I am getting errors saying that I am using invalid expression terms. My code is;
//Create the Command, passing in the SQL statement and the ConnectionString queryString = "SELECT UserName FROM Member WHERE (UserName = @myUsername); ";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(queryString, sqlConn);cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@myUsername", Convert.ToString(Session["sUserName"])));
//If UserName is null, display confirmation, else display errorif (UserName == null) ;
{UserNameCheckLabel.Text = "Username okay";
String queryString = "INSERT INTO Member (UserName) VALUES(@myUsername); ";SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(queryString, sqlConn); cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@myUsername", Convert.ToString(Session["sUserName"])));
}else;
{UserNameCheckLabel.Text = "That username is in use";
}
I have a feeling I should be checking the database for the UserName, but I'm not sure whether to put this in the SELECT statement part or as a method... I would be most grateful for any advice!
Many thanks,
Chima

How To Insert Null Values Into A DataBase Field

May 9, 2005

I have a function that updates a table in sql server
If a field is left blank I want the database field set to Null. I use:sqlCmd.Parameter.Add("@somefield, someintvalue) to pass all my values to the database.
if someintvalue is null I want to set @somefield to dbnull
How can I do this? I get errors if I submit a null integer when there is a foreign key constraint. What is the best way to handle this? should I just make all parameters objects? so that I can set them to DBNull.Value?
Also on a side note, when you are populating fields from a datatable, is there a better way to set the values (i.e. of a textbox) than cheking for DBNull before assigning?

How To Pass Null Value To The Database If A Form Field Is Empty?

May 31, 2004

How can I pass into the database (@User_fax = null) if the fax form field is empty, from a command type Stored Procedure? For example:

Dim CmdUpdate As New SqlCommand("Form2_NewUser", strConnection)
CmdUpdate.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

CmdUpdate.Parameters.Add("@User_fax", SqlDbType.char, 9)
CmdUpdate.Parameters("@User_fax").Value = fax.Text()

...

strConnection.open()
CmdUpdate.ExecuteNonQuery
strConnection.close()



And, the stored procedure inside Sql server:

USE market1
GO
ALTER PROC Form2_NewUser
@User_id bigint, @User_fax char(9),...

AS

SET NOCOUNT ON
UPDATE Users
SET User_fax = @User_fax, ...

WHERE User_id = @User_id
SET NOCOUNT OFF
GO



Thank you,

SQL Returning Null

Feb 13, 2007

Thanks to everyone in advance

The code below returns the members who have accounts that are inactive, and works correctly.
It returns the memberid, but returns null values for the barcode values.
I am explicitly looking for unmatched rows, i.e. the LEFT OUTER JOIN will return joined member-address
rows which do not have a matching account, according to the ON conditions, and these are the ones I want
because of that WHERE condition.
Therefore account.barcode will always be NULL too.

Is there to perform the same query and return account details?
I have tried running a query to return just the memberid values and then perform a second query to match the account
details, but this is very ineffecient and slow.


select member.memberid, account.barcode
FROM member
INNER
JOIN address
ON address.MemberID = member.Memberid
LEFT OUTER
JOIN account
ON account.Memberid = member.MemberID
AND account.enddate >= current_date
AND account.closed = 0
WHERE account.Memberid is null AND member.isDeleted = 0

Special thanks to r937 for help.

RowCount Is Returning Null

Apr 4, 2007

i have 2 stored procedures: a delete and a select.  the delete sp returns the rowcount properly.  the select returns null.  the code for both sp's is extremely simple and extremely similar.  when i execute the select sp in server management studio the rowcount shows a 1 as expected.  but the calling method gets null.
SP Code 
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[RetrieveEmployeeKeyFromAssignmentTable]
@assignmentPrimaryKey int,
@rowCount int OUTPUT
AS
BEGIN
SET NOCOUNT ON;
SELECT employeePrimaryKey FROM assignmentTable WHERE primaryKey = @assignmentPrimaryKey;
SET @rowCount = @@RowCount;

Returning Null Values

Jun 4, 2007

I have a simple table on my webpage which shows data from my database.
It all worked fine apart from one part. I wanted the select statement to select only NULL values from a column, as these are classed as open queries. Once I have closed the query a 0 or 1 will automatically be posted and will no longer have a NULL value.
I have a simple select statement (which I will post on here when I log in with my work computer) and at the end I have a WHERE Column = NULL. I have also tried WHERE column <> 0.0 AND column <>1.0 and that did not work.
If I only did WHERE column <> 1.0, i only get the 0.0 results and none of the NULL results, but if I have no WHERE statement I get all the results including the NULL values.

@@servername Returning NULL

Mar 9, 2006

I have a SQL 2005 clustered server which is returning a Null value for @@servername. I find the server entry in sysservers. I have replication configured on this so i am not able to do a Sp_dropserver & sp_addserver as this acts as a publisher. The configured merge repication stopped working because of this issue and I am not able to delete replication as the the delete option uses @@servername which returns a null value. So I am struck in a loop.

Any advice is appreciated.

I need to pass in null/blank value in the date field or declare the field as string and convert date back to string.

I tried the 2nd option but I am having trouble converting the two digits of the recordset (rs_get_msp_info(2), 1, 2))) into a four digit yr. But it will only the yr in two digits.
The mfg_start_date is delcared as a string variable

mfg_start_date = CStr(CDate(Mid(rs_get_msp_info(2), 3, 2) & "/" & Mid(rs_get_msp_info(2), 5, 2) & "/" & Mid(rs_get_msp_info(2), 1, 2)))

option 1
I will have to declare the mfg_start_date as date but I need to send in a blank value for this variable in the stored procedure. It won't accept a null or blank value.

With refresh_shipping_sched
.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection
.CommandText = "spRefresh_shipping_sched"

But when i run the package a put a data viewer right after the source and i can see that it's showing that the few fields that should have values are also null. I've tried a lot of things but they didn't work. I need some help and fast if possible.
Example: Source file.xls

John 30 30.23
In the DataViewer

Keeping A Table Moderatley Sized (partitions?)

Jan 29, 2008

Guys,

First off, I'm not very familiar with SQL Server. I need some guidance on what the best path to take is for this as it may not even be table partitions.

I have a huge table (155 million rows) and it's gotten so large than I can't even delete a large set of rows from it (i.e. delete everything older than 6 mo, which would be ~100 million rows). When trying to run a delete like this, it just goes for a LONG time and then just eventually runs out of memory.

The current data in this table can actually be completely cleared out soon (after Feb 1st) and I plan to do this with TRUNCATE TABLE, or just DROP and recreate. Once I do this, I want to create a way to keep this table moderately sized so it never grows that large again and it seems table partitions may be the way to go for this?

I'd like to keep the last 6mo of data in it (I have a datetime column to keep track of this). Anything older I'd like automatically removed. Can I do this with table partitioning? Create 6 partitions that store the 6 most recent months of data and everything older automatically gets dropped off?

If not partitions, what do you suggest to keep this DB modest size?

Thank you.

Java Code Returning Null Resultset

Oct 26, 2007

Hi,

Here's a snippet of my java code :

Code:


boolean b = statementSQLServer.execute("select ROW_ID from S_INDUST where NAME='InWire'");

resultSetSQLServer = statementSQLServer.getResultSet();

System.out.println("b = " + b);
System.out.println("Are there any rows ?? " + resultSetSQLServer.next());



This code is returning null resultset.

But when I fire the same query directly into MS SQL, it is returning the corresponding rows.

I dont know where i'm going wrong. But just to make things more clearer, here's my connectivity code :

Code:


Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
connectionSQLServer = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:dm", "user", "pass");

statementSQLServer = connectionSQLServer.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE);




Please help me out if possible....

Parameter Issues When Returning Null Records

May 14, 2008

Hi,

I'm running into an issue where if a report retrieves 0 records, I run into an error. My report has 2 queries-- the main query to retrieve Account information and the other to return Contact information based on the contact id(s) returned by the Account query. The reason needing two separate queries is that the contact and account tables are on different databases.

Now here is my account query: select contact_id, username, password from account.
My contact query looks like this: select name, address, .... from contact where contact_id = @contact_id.

In my report parameters, I define contact_id like this:
*******************************************
name = contact_id
data type = integer
prompt = [blanked out]
hidden = checked
internal = checked
multi-value = unchecked
allow null value = checked
allow blank value = unchecked

available values:
from query: dataset = account
value field = contact_id

label field = contact_id

default values:
from query: dataset = account
value field = contact_id
**********************************************

Now, when I run my report and knowing there are no records, I get the following error: "The 'contact_id' parameter is missing a value". Any ideas on how to solve this issue? Thanks.

Call To Stored Proc Returning Null Datatable

Jun 6, 2007

I have a stored proc which should be returning a datatable.  When I execute it manually it returns all requested results. However, when I call it via code (C#) it is returning a null table which leads me to believe the problem is in my code.  I'm not getting any errors during runtime.  Any help at all would be a BIG help!
private void PopulateControls()    {        DataTable table = CartAccess.getCart();    }
public static DataTable getCart() {        DbCommand comm = GenericDataAccess.CreateCommand();        comm.CommandText = "sp_cartGetCart";
        DbParameter param = comm.CreateParameter();        param.ParameterName = "@CartID";        param.Value = cartID;        param.DbType = DbType.String;        param.Size = 36;        comm.Parameters.Add(param);
        DataTable table = (GenericDataAccess.ExecuteSelectCommand(comm));        return table; }
public static DataTable ExecuteSelectCommand(DbCommand command)    {        // The DataTable to be returned         DataTable table;        // Execute the command making sure the connection gets closed in the end        try        {            // Open the data connection             command.Connection.Open();            // Execute the command and save the results in a DataTable            DbDataReader reader = command.ExecuteReader();            table = new DataTable();            table.Load(reader);            // Close the reader             reader.Close();        }        catch (Exception ex)        {            Utilities.SendErrorLogEmail(ex);            throw ex;        }        finally        {            // Close the connection            command.Connection.Close();        }        return table;    }

Left Outer Join Not Returning All/null Rows

Dec 31, 2007

Need some join help...

Table 1 - Modules:
ID | Name
1 | A
2 | B
3 | C

Table 2 - CompanyModules
ModuleID | CompanyID
1 | 1
2 | 1
3 | 1
1 | 2


I'd like to return the following result set:
CompanyModules.CompanyID | Modules.Name | Present
1 | A | True
1 | B | True
1 | C | True
2 | A | True
2 | B | False
2 | C | False

What would be the query for this? Thanks.


Edit: This is the query I have tried:


select CompanyModules.CompanyID, Modules.Name, count(Modules.ID) as Present from

CompanyModules RIGHT outer Join Modules on CompanyModules.ModuleID = Modules.ID

group By CompanyModules.CompanyID, Modules.Name

Order by CompanyID


However, it only returns a partial result set:

CompanyModules.CompanyID | Modules.Name | Present
1 | A | 1
1 | B | 1
1 | C | 1
2 | A | 1

Returning A Count Of A Certain Field

Nov 18, 2014

I want to get a count of how many PosAnswer are associated with the QuesToAsk 'List your top 5 favorite places'

This is the syntax I am using to achieve this, and it works, but wasn't sure if there was a better way (changing the data structure is unfortunately not an option in this situation). Here is my table structure

Code:
Create Table Test
(
QuesToAsk varchar(1000),
PosAnswer varchar(1000)

[Code] ....

And this is the syntax I use to get the count I am after

Code:
DECLARE @VariableName varchar(25)
DECLARE @FormattedVariableName varchar(25)
DECLARE @FieldCount int
SET @VariableName =

[Code] ....

Transact SQL :: CASE With Subselect And DATEADD Function Returning NULL Values

Jun 15, 2015

I'm running the following test query on a single table:

SELECT sph.datestamp, sph.stocksymbol, sph.closing, DATENAME(dw, sph.datestamp),
CASE DATENAME(dw, sph.datestamp)    
WHEN 'Monday' then 'Monday'  
ELSE (SELECT CAST(sph2.datestamp AS nvarchar) FROM BI_Test.dbo.StockDB AS sph2 WHERE sph2.DateStamp = DATEADD(d, -1, sph.datestamp) AND sph2.StockSymbol = 'NYA') 
END AS TestCase,

[Code] ....

And here's an example of the output I'm getting:

Why the exact same subquery in the THEN of the second CASE statement is returning NULL when the first one completes as expected?
