Hi Minor and inconsequential but sometimes you just gotta know: Is it possible to define a non-primary key index within a Create Table statement? I can create a constraint and a PK. I can create the table and then add the index. I just wondered if you can do it in one statement. e.g. I have: CREATE TABLE MyT (MyT_ID INT Identity(1, 1) CONSTRAINT MyT_PK PRIMARY KEY Clustered, MyT_Desc Char(40) NOT NULL CONSTRAINT MyT_idx1 UNIQUE NONCLUSTERED ON [DEFAULT])which creates a table with a PK and unique constraint. I would like (pseudo SQL):CREATE TABLE MyT (MyT_ID INT Identity(1, 1) CONSTRAINT MyT_PK PRIMARY KEY Clustered, MyT_Desc Char(40) NOT NULL CONSTRAINT MyT_idx1 UNIQUE INDEX NONCLUSTERED ON [DEFAULT]) No big deal - just curious :D Once I know I can stop scouring BOL for clues. Tks in advance

Can CREATE DATABASE Or CREATE TABLE Be Wrapped In Transactions?

Jul 20, 2005

I have some code that dynamically creates a database (name is @FullName) andthen creates a table within that database. Is it possible to wrap thesethings into a transaction such that if any one of the following fails, thedatabase "creation" is rolledback. Otherwise, I would try deleting on errordetection, but it could get messy.IF @Error = 0BEGINSET @ExecString = 'CREATE DATABASE ' + @FullNameEXEC sp_executesql @ExecStringSET @Error = @@ErrorENDIF @Error = 0BEGINSET @ExecString = 'CREATE TABLE ' + @FullName + '.[dbo].[Image] ( [ID][int] IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL, [Blob] [image] NULL , [DateAdded] [datetime]NULL ) ON [PRIMARY] TEXTIMAGE_ON [PRIMARY]'EXEC sp_executesql @ExecStringSET @Error = @@ErrorENDIF @Error = 0BEGINSET @ExecString = 'ALTER TABLE ' + @FullName + '.[dbo].[Image] WITHNOCHECK ADD CONSTRAINT [PK_Image] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED ( [ID] ) ON[PRIMARY]'EXEC sp_executesql @ExecStringSET @Error = @@ErrorEND

Dynamic SQL- Create Table

Sep 26, 2001

Is it possible to create a temp table using exec. e.g

exec('create table #temp1 (xyz int, abc int)')

when I run the above statement, I dont get an error but nothing happens.

The reason I need to create it dynamically is that in my stored proc, I am passed a number. This number determines how many columns my temp table should have.

Create Dynamic Table From CSV

Apr 3, 2007


I'm trying to import a csv file directly to my database every month. The contents of the file stays the same, however the format of the columns may vary. For example, 1 month I can have the following:

Time, Probe1, Probe2, Probe3, Probe4

Whereas the next month I can have something like this

Time, Probe2, Probe3, Probe1, Probe4

The "Time" column will always be on the left side, but the probes may vary in their placement.

I'm importing this csv to a temp table, where I then run a query to select any new data and enter that in my main tables. The problem is that when i import the csv, if the placement of the columns has changed, the data gets entered in the wrong locations.

Is there any way to create this temp table dynamically, based on what the header columns of the csv file are?

Any help appreciated!

Jul 23, 2005

SQL Server 7/2000: We have reasonably large tables (3,000,000 rows)that we need to add some indexes for. In a test, it took over 12 hoursto CREATE a new INDEX against this table. One of us suggested that wecreate a temp table with the new index and copy the data from the oldtable into the new one, then rename it. I understand this took 15minutes. Why the heck would it be faster to move the data and buildmultiple indexes incrementally vs adding an index??

Create New Database Based On A Template Using SMO

May 6, 2007

Hi All,
I'm working on a web application where the user needs to be able to create and name new databases that are identical in structure to other existing databases (that is, all tables, stored procedures, functions, indexes, etc.). This is so that they can create a new database for each client and need to be able to do this through the web application. Having hunted around a fair bit, I've established that SMO is capable of doing pretty much everything that I want. The only problem is that everything I do seems to be based on the actual SQL Server and associated databases rather than the ones I have created in the App_Data folder.
The relevant code (so far) is:Dim sqlServer As New Server()
With sqlServer.ConnectionContext
.ServerInstance = "(local)"
End With

For Each db As Database In sqlServer.Databases

Dim newDatabase As New Database(sqlServer, DbName.Text.ToString)
This does actaully create a new database, just not where I want it! Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how I can create a copy of a database in the App_Data folder?
Thanks & regards,

SQL Server 2012 :: Create Dynamic Update Statement Based On Return Values In Select Statement

Jan 9, 2015

Ok I have a query "SELECT ColumnNames FROM tbl1" let's say the values returned are "age,sex,race".

Now I want to be able to create an "update" statement like "UPATE tbl2 SET Col2 = age + sex + race" dynamically and execute this UPDATE statement. So, if the next select statement returns "age, sex, race, gender" then the script should create "UPDATE tbl2 SET Col2 = age + sex + race + gender" and execute it.

Need Help To Create Tables Based On Word Doc Table

Nov 23, 2007


I'm looking for the best solution for creating database tables based on
a Word Document with a table. I've attached part of the table from the word doc. This document is base on a template for audit reporting.

What I assume is I would need first to start of by creating two tables.
One table would consist of the fields of the horizontal upper most data e.g.
conformance, noncomformance etc. The other table would consist of the vertical fields of the word doc table, e.g. editorial, Auditee Name etc. If my assumption is correct, what primary key and foreign key would I need to have?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Jul 27, 2004

In SQL Server you can do a SELECT INTO to create a new table, much like CREAT TABLE AS in Oracle. I'm putting together a dynamic script that will create a table with the number of columns being the dynamic part of my script. Got any suggestions that come to mind?


I need to count the number of weeks between two dates, my columns in the table need to be at least one for every week returned in my query.

I'm thinking of getting a count of the number of weeks then building my column string comma separated then do my CREATE TABLE statement rather then the SELECT INTO... But I'm not sure I'll be able to do that using a variable that holds the string of column names. I'm guess the only way I can do this is via either VBScript or VB rather then from within the database.

BTW - this would be a stored procedure...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Create Target Table Dynamically Based On Source Table Schema?

Sep 13, 2005

I’ve got a situation where the columns in a table we’re grabbing from a source database keep changing as we need more information from that database. As new columns are added to the source table, I would like to dynamically look for those new columns and add them to our local database’s schema if new ones exist. We’re dropping and creating our target db table each time right now based on a pre-defined known schema, but what we really want is to drop and recreate it based on a dynamic schema, and then import all of the records from the source table to ours.It looks like a starting point might be EXEC sp_columns_rowset 'tablename' and then creating some kind of dynamic SQL statement based on that. However, I'm hoping someone might have a resource that already handles this that they might be able to steer me towards.Sincerely,

Can't Create A Full-text Index Or Catalogue On My Sql Table.

Sep 28, 2006

I am trying to run an SELECT statement with a CONTAINS statement from a aspx.net solution built using Visual Web Developer 2005 express edition. When I try to run the thing it throws an error saying

"Cannot use a CONTAINS or FREETEXT predicate on table or indexed view 'JournalArticle' because it is not full-text indexed.".

I don't have access to the SQL Express server, I interface through Server Management Studio Express. There is an option to create a full-text index from the menu, but it is greyed out, presumably because there is no full-text catalogue. This is my real question, How do I create a full-text catalogue using Server Management Studio Express? The help function only provides examples of sql code, which I assume must be performed using sql server (which I don't have access to). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Trying To Create A Proc That Will Insert Values Based On A Condition That Is Another Table

Feb 16, 2005

Can someone give me a clue on this. I'm trying to insert values based off of values in another table.

I'm comparing wether two id's (non keys in the db) are the same in two fields (that is the where statement. Based on that I'm inserting into the Results table in the PledgeLastYr collumn a 'Y' (thats what I want to do -- to indicate that they have pledged over the last year).

Two questions

1. As this is set up right now I'm getting NULL values inserted into the PledgeLastYr collumn. I'm sure this is a stupid syntax problem that i'm overlooking but if someone can give me a hint that would be great.

2. How would I go about writing an If / Else statement in T-SQL so that I can have the Insert statement for both the Yes they have pledged and No they have not pledged all in one stored proc. I'm not to familar with the syntax of writing conditional statements within T-SQL as of yet, and if someone can give me some hints on how to do that it would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks in advance, bellow is the code that I have so far:


Select Results.custID, Results.PledgeLastYr
From Results, PledgeInLastYear
Where Results.custID = PledgeInLastYear.constIDPledgeInLastYear
Insert Into Results(PledgeLastYr)
Values ('Y')
