Creating A Blank Row In A Table Between Positive && Negative Values

Oct 29, 2007

I have a table that displays a bunch of data based on their percentage changes.

There is a parameter (let's say 5%) that the user can set to display only the data which either increased more than 5% or decreased more than 5%.

I want to have a space between the positive changes and the negative changes. ie, to create a blank row between the +'s and the -'s. Does anyone know of a way to do this?

Group By Positive Or Negative Number In Table

May 7, 2008

Sorry if this question has been answered before--i tried a search but nothing came close to what i needed.

I have a report I am creating where I need to group on whether a number is positive or negative. The number will never be zero. This number is a decimal (currency), if that makes a difference.

I have tried creating a formula field with the following expression:

Code Snippet

IIf(Fields!Num.Value > 0, 1, 0)

I tried creating a group using this field (essentially, positive = 1 and negative = 0), but it gave me no results at all.

If you need any more information, please let me know and I will provide what I can. Thanks for your answers!

QA Returning Negative #s As Positive

Mar 30, 2004

Hey guys,

I have a very peculiar issue going on. I have a table that contains a decimal(18,2) column called "Amount". Looking at this table through Enterprise Mgr, I can see that there are values in there that are negative. However, when I run a query in Query Analyzer, it displays all the negative values as positives.

The only workaround I've found right now is to change the column type to "real" and then change it back to decimal(18,2), and it starts showing the negatives as negative. However, without performing this absurd workaround, it doesn't work.

Is there a known bug in QA that would manifest itself as this? What is the cause for this?

Thanks in advance.

How Do You Convert A Number From Negative To Positive?

Jan 18, 2008

I was just wondering if there is a way of converting a number from negative to positive within Reporting Services, ie remove the "-" sign from the front of the number? One of the columns within my report contains a calculation which results in an integer, but it is always a negative number, even though it should really be positive (it would take too long to describe the exact reason for this, but it's to do with the underlying database, which I don't have access to anyway). When I right-click on the relevant cell within the table in Layout view in the Report Designer and go to Expression, there is a list of Conversion functions under the "Common Functions" heading but I can't find anything there which would convert a number from negative to positive. Does anyone know how this can be achieved?

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Summing - Adding A Negative And A Positive

Mar 20, 2014

I have a query that brings in a result from a table that I have to display as a negative, so I use ABS (tbname.fieldname) *-1

This works fine. (Learnt it here from a previous post.)

I have another query that brings in a result from the same table but as a postive. So that works fine too.

Now, I need to sum them together in a new query. If the total value is a positive, fine. If the total value is a negative, it displays as a positive.

My question. Is it actually possible to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Output example below - narrow result for testing.

idpt2 Value2SumQty
N1141307-80970 3.80 2
N1141S2G00009D070 26.16 2

The 3.80 is correct, it is a positive.

The 26.16 is incorrect as it is the output from sum 235.44 -261.6 so I need it to display as -26.6

Treat Data Differently For Positive Vs Negative #

Oct 11, 2005

Ok, I have a table with IP addresses stored in decimal format using both positive and negative numbers.
The way that they are stored is:
1 thru 2147483647 = -
-2147483648 thru -1 = -
x/2^24 . (x/2^24)/2^16 . etc . etc
(x+2^32)/2^24 . ((x+2^32)/2^24)/2^16 . etc . etc

I have a script which works by using UNION and the WHERE statements are x>0 x<0

My problem is I need to use a 3rd party app to run the script (McAfee ePO). McAfee does not recognize the UNION. My question is, can I acheive the same results as the script below, without using UNION.

SELECT ReportFullPathNode.FullPathName,
cast(cast(IPSubnetMask.IP_Start as bigint)/16777216 as varchar) + '.' +

Stacked Column Bar With Negative And Positive Value. Cannot Cross At Zero

Jul 27, 2007

I've a stacked column chart (vertical) both with positive and negative value.

I want an horizontal line only for the value = 0.

I tried to add a serie and to plot it as line, but I see it in the legend and I don't want to see it.

Can I show the gridlines only for the value 0?

SQL Server 2012 :: Pattern Matching (positive Across Records - Negative Within A Field)

Jan 6, 2015

I am doing some analysis on our customer base and their payment profiles. I have generated two profile strings, one for whether the balance of an account has gone up or down and one for the size of the balance in relation to the normal invoice amount for the customer. So (for example) the balance movement string will look like this:

UUUDUUUDUUUD-D00 Where U = Up, D = Down, - = no change and 0 = no change and no balance

I want to analyse these strings in two ways. The first is that I want to find customers with a similar pattern: in the example below the first and last patterns are the same, just one out of sync but should be considered the same

Movement Multiple CountRecords

The second type of analysis is to find customers whose pattern has changed: in the examples above the patterns are repeated and therefore 'normal' in the records below the patterns have changed in that the first part does not match the second part.

Movement Multiple CountRecords

good way to approach this without either a cursor or a hidden REBAR. The challenge as I see it is that I have to interrogate every string to find out if there is a repeating pattern and if so where it starts and how long it is (heuristic because some strings will start with a repeating pattern and then the pattern may change or deteriorate) and then compare the string for N groups of repeating characters to see if and when it changes and I can't think of an efficient method to do this in SQL because it is not a set based operation.

Reporting Services :: Make Bar Chart Color Red If Number Is Negative And Green If It Is Positive?

May 27, 2015

I have a 2012 report builder chart that has two series (one area chart and one bar chart) combined into one chart.  The problem I'm having is the bar chart has much smaller numbers than the area chart and the scaling is messed up.

Is there any way to put the bar chart on the right axis and keep the area chart on the left axis?  My goal is to increase the size of the bar chart in relation to the area chart.

Also, is there any way to make the bar chart color red if the number is negative and green if it is positive?

Data Warehousing :: DateDiff Function To Return Positive Value Irrespective Of Values Passed

Aug 7, 2015

I have a requirement to use DateDiff(Months,DateTime1,DateTime2) and this must return positive integer values.

Currently negative numbers are being returned because DateTime1 < DateTime2  or DateTime1 > DateTime2 .

The DateTime1 and  DateTime2  values are dynamic and either of them can be bigger than the other.

Any query solution so that always positive value is returned.

Jan 17, 2007

calculating profit... how do I write an update query that will correct the gross profit calculated column for all negative qty transactions

Basically in the stored procedure that creates the table the query includes:

Profit = CASE Sale WHEN 0 THEN 0 ELSE (Sale - Cost) END,
which is wrong when sale and cost is negative the formula becomes
(-Sale + Cost).... I want it to be -(Sale-Cost) (where sale any cost ignores negative sign.....

DTS Import Negative Excel Values

Aug 8, 2007

Hello everybody,

I have a DTS package that imports excel spreadsheets.
The excel spreadsheet cells contain numbers based on vlookups. Now negative values appear in these cells as -999 but when loaded into the table they appear as (999).
Is there anyway way to configure it to just load -999? The tricky part is I don't have control over the format of the spreadsheet cell and the destination table field is varchar. I am hoping there is some way that the DTS interprets and picks up the value as it is displayed in excel.
Or do I have to stick with converting it manually by replacing '(' and ')' with nothing and appending '-'?

Thanks for any help.

Creating A Table With Values

Is this the proper SYNTAX to insert multiple rows of values or is there something I missed to differentiate between each row of values?

Visual Studio GUI Forcing Negative Increment Values

Feb 13, 2008


I'm starting out with Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server CE and have come unstuck at the first hurdle.

I have performed the below simple steps:
1. I have created a table with an identity field in it. The identify increment is a positive value (1). This works fine and I can populate data to the table directly.
2. I drag the table adapter from the dataset to a form to create a datagrid form.

When I run this form, the field for the identify column populates with negative values and when I go to save the record the application errors.

Note: this only happens with SQL Server CE. I do exactly the same with a server based db and get positive increments via the form.

The simple-ugly solution is to just set a negative increment in the table to match what is going on via the form, but this strikes me as a cop out. It is most likely that I am overlooking something obvious and I would be very appreciative if someone could point me in the right direction.

Creating A Blank File

Feb 29, 2008

Hi All,

We have a fairly standard process whereby we get a trigger file from a client FTP site, and check whether it's blank (zero length) or not. if it's not zero length, then we attempt to download the actual data file. if that's successfull, we overwrite the trigger file with a blank file.

now this is all very easy in a batch script or unix shell script, but there appears to be no "create file" option in the file system task. I've also tried having a flat file destination in a data flow task but it insists that it wants columns to be fed to it.

how can I create a blank file?!?!?

I have a table containing a VARCHAR(9) NOT NULL column. Every record in the column will have alength of 9 if a record exists.

WHEN I run the following query on the table

FROM Table1
WHERE Column_A <> ''

I get no records returned. However, I know that when I run a query

FROM table1

I have used Datalength instead of LEN because LEN does not return the length of a space character.

I get records amny records. When I copy an individual record from the column, it shows that a space character is in the record.

Does anyone know whay this is happening?

Blank Values Replicating To Oracle

Sep 26, 2006

Replicating from SQL Server 2005 to Oracle 9i Release 2. The source table has NOT NULL specified for all columns. The table contains multiple rows with blank values in one of the NOT NULL columns. When I attempt to replicate this table to Oracle, I'm unable to replicate the rows containing the blank values.

I've followed the directions in the Oracle Subscribers page in Books Online:

Modify the generated create table script, removing the NOT NULL attribute from any character columns that may have associated empty strings, and supply the modified script as a custom create script for the article using the @creation_script parameter of sp_addarticle
Here is the segment of the Publication Script referencing sp_addarticle:

exec sp_addarticle
@publication = N'mike_hayes_test_replication2',
@article = N'mike_hayes_test_replication',
@source_owner = N'bmssa',
@source_object = N'mike_hayes_test_replication',
@type = N'logbased',
@description = N'',
@creation_script = 'CREATE TABLE [bmssa].[mike_hayes_test_replication2]( [EXCELCOLUMN] [int] NULL, [TABLENAME] [varchar](40) NULL, [FIELDNUM] [int] NULL , [REFTABLEID] [int] NULL , [MODULETYPE] [int] NULL , [DATAAREAID] [varchar](3) NULL, [RECVERSION] [int] NULL, [RECID] [int] NULL, [BRAND] [varchar](20) NULL )',
@pre_creation_cmd = N'drop',
@schema_option = 0x00,
@identityrangemanagementoption = N'manual',
@destination_table = N'mike_hayes_test_replication2',
@destination_owner = N'bmssa',
@vertical_partition = N'false'
I added the @creation_script value, and changed the schema_option to 0x00.
The problem is that when replication occurs, the table that is created has NOT NULL specified for all columns. I expected that the @creation_script would be executed, (as per the instructions), but that doesn't appear to be the case.
Any ideas?
Thanks for your help.

Select Query From A Stored Proc When The Values Can Be Blank.

Oct 10, 2006

Hi All,

I think what am trying to do is quite basic.

I have 3 paramaters@value1, @value2,@value3 being passed into a stored
proc and each of these parameters can be blank. If one of them is blank
and the rest of them have some valid values, then I should just exclude
the column check for the value that is blank.

For e.g if all my parameters being passed are non- empty then I would
do this
select * from tblName
where column1 like @value1 and column2 like @value2 and column3 like

else if I have one of the parameter being passed as empty, I should
ignore that parameter like
if@value1 is empty then my sql should be

select * from tblName
where column2 like @value2 and column3 like @value3

I don't want to do a dyanmic sql because of rights and security issue.
I want it through a stored procedure only.

Also, all the three columns can have null values in the table.
Please let me know what is the best possible way to do this. Thanks in
advance !.
