# Help W/ Distance Calculation Query

Mar 28, 2007

I'm trying to run a dyncamic query that returns all records within a specific distance of a certain point. The longitude and latitude of each record is stored in the database. The query is constructed from two dynamic variables \$StartLatitude and \$StartLongitude with represent the starting point.

SELECT UserID, ACOS(SIN(\$StartLatitude * PI() / 180) * SIN(Latitude * PI() / 180) + COS(\$StartLatitude * PI() / 180) * COS(Latitude * PI() / 180) * COS((\$StartLongitude - Longitude) * PI() / 180)) * 180 / PI() * 60 * 1.1515 AS Distance
FROM HPN_Painters
HAVING (Distance <= 150)

It runs fine until I add the 'HAVING (Distance <= 150)' clause, in which I recieve the error: Invalid column name 'Distance' It seems that Distance cannot be referenced in the HAVING clause.

## Analysis :: SSAS Calculation With Division Combined With A Time Calculation?

Sep 17, 2015

I have created calcalated measures in a SQL Server 2012 SSAS multi dimensional model by creating empty measures in the cube and use scope statements to fill the calculation.

(so I can use measure security on calculations

as explained here  )

SCOPE [Measures].[C];

THIS = IIF([B]=0,0,[Measures].[A]/[Measures].[B]);

## Query For Cumulative GPA Calculation

Oct 9, 2015

I have a table with the following creation sql script

CREATETABLE [dbo].[TEST_ENROLLMENT](
[ENROLLMENT_ID] [int]
NOTNULL,
[COURSE_OFFERING_ID] [int]
NOTNULL,
[STUDENT_ID] [int]

[Code] ....

Below is the sql insert for the above table’s data

INSERTINTO TEST_ENROLLMENT(ENROLLMENT_ID,COURSE_OFFERING_ID,STUDENT_ID,DEPT_ID,COURSE_CODE,CREDIT,SECTION_ID,
)VALUES(877,356,104,15,'IRD

[Code] ...

I was trying to calculate GPA and Commulative GPA (CGPA) for this student and the formula of GPA is SUM(Honor)/SUM(CREDIT) and the formula of the CGPA is the Average of the SUM(Honor)/SUM(CREDIT) grouped by semester and I wrote the below query which is calculating the GPA correctly but wrongly calculating the CGPA.

How to get the correct CGPA shown in the below desired result set table.

select x.STUDENT_ID,AVG(x.gpa)as
GPA,AVG(y.gpa)AS'COMMULATIVE GPA'
from
(
select STUDENT_ID,SUM(Honor)/SUM(CREDIT)

[Code] ....

Current result set (Incorrect CUMULATIVE GPA)

STUDENT_ID GPA CUMULATIVE GPA
104 2.9 2.9
104 2.25 2.25
104 3 3

Desired result set

STUDENT_ID GPA COMMUTATIVE GPA

104 2.25 2.575
104 3 2.716

## Some Kind Of Calculation Is Needed For This Query?

Sep 19, 2005

Hi,

I have a query which gives me the following results:

lLedgerCode sGLCode bDebit TotalSum sGLDesc
61 6843000701 0 600ALPS Holding
33 8345000701 0 1116ALPS Premium Due
56 1000000701 0 1116Regular Premium Income
63 6836000701 1 516ALPS Group Holding
61 6843000701 1 600ALPS Holding
30 6842000701 1 600ALPS Policy Clearing
33 8345000701 1 1116ALPS Premium Due

The Column bDebit has either value '0' or value '1' in it ('0' being debit - positive amount, and '1' - credit, negative amount).

I would like it to show the net amount for each account. Therefore in plain English I would like to take all GLCodes that are the same (eg 6843000701) and sum all amounts that have debit value of '0' and subtract all amounts that have debit value '1'. Therefore I would only see '6843000701' code once, and the amount would be '0' becase 600 - 600 = 0.

The current query is:
SELECT dbo.tbGLTransactions.lLedgerCode, dbo.tbGLTransactions.sGLCode, dbo.tbGLTransactions.bDebit, SUM(curAmount)As TotalSum, dbo.tbLedgerCode.sGLDesc
FROM dbo.tbGLTransactions
INNER JOIN dbo.tbLedgerCode
on dbo.tbGLTransactions.lLedgerCode = dbo.tbLedgerCode.lLedgerCode
WHERE dbo.tbGLTransactions.lGLExtractRun = '452'
Group By dbo.tbGLTransactions.lLedgerCode, dbo.tbGLTransactions.sGLCode, dbo.tbGLTransactions.bDebit, dbo.tbLedgerCode.sGLDesc
Order By dbo.tbGLTransactions.bDebit, dbo.tbLedgerCode.sGLDesc

Is someone able to help me as to how i need to modify this query to get the desired result?

Thanks!

## Mirroring Over Distance????

Mar 1, 2007

Is there a recommended practice for mirroring in regards to distance? Is it best practice to mirror with both nodes at the same physical location and use another method for failing over to a remote location or can one just put the other node in the mirror a few thousand miles away? I'm suspecting not.

## Edit Distance

Mar 18, 2008

Hi,
please, it is possible to know the edit distance used in the fuzzy lookup/grouping.
On this forum I read fuzzy lookup use 4-gram with fix size.
Does exist any document explaining how fuzzy lookup calculate the similarity? In other word, what kind of edit distance, algorithm is used by fuzzy lookup/grouping?
I hope I was enough clear with my poor english.

## Database Mirrors Over Distance

Mar 20, 2007

Various posts have noted that mirroring over distance is not advisable or that either async connections should be used.

Are there any limits/recommendations i.e. if two datacenters are a couple of files part with 10GBs fibre links and <50ms response times would this be acceptable for high-availability mirroring?

## Cluster Euclidean Distance

Mar 27, 2007

I am new to data mining so please excuse my ignorance. Lets assume

- i have created a cluser model

- identified 3 clusters ( a, b, c)

- each record consists of 15 columns

- collecting new records( 15 variables) real time

what i would like to do is plot these new records programmatically as i collect them realtime. I assume this new record will belong to one of these three clusters. I believe we can find the cluster this new record belongs to by ' SELECT Cluster()....' and distance from the center of the cluster by ClusterDistance(). To plot this on a 2-dimentional space i need (x, y).

ClusterDistance() could be Y but what will be X.

thanks.

## Find Data Within 10m Distance Of Coordinates?

Nov 22, 2013

I am trying to write a piece of SQL which gives me a list of enquiries within 10 metre distance of a enquiry.

The idea is to identify possible duplicates.

Table: enquiry

Primary key: enquiry_number

Co-ordinates data fields: enquiry.enquiry_easting and enquiry.enquiry_northing.

I will need to self-search on the same table to find possible enquiries within 10m distance.

## Levenshtein Edit Distance Algorithm

Jun 24, 2005

See here www.merriampark.com/ld.htm for information about the algorithm. This page has a link (http://www.merriampark.com/ldtsql.htm) to a T-SQL implementation by Joseph Gama: unfortunately, that function doesn't work. There is a debugged version in the also-referenced package of TSQL functions (http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?txtCodeId=502&lngWId=5), but this still has the fundamental problem that it only works on pairs of strings up to 49 characters.

CREATE FUNCTION edit_distance(@s1 nvarchar(3999), @s2 nvarchar(3999))

AS
BEGIN
DECLARE @s1_len int, @s2_len int, @i int, @j int, @s1_char nchar, @c int, @c_temp int,

## Stored Procedure To Retrieve Zipcodes Within A Specified Zipcode And Distance

## SQL Server 2008 :: Spatial Data Not Returning Correct Distance

Apr 29, 2015

I have the two following locations.

They're both towns in Australia , State of Victoria

Fitzroy,-37.798701, 144.978687
Footscray,-37.799736, 144.899734

After running geography::Point(Latitude, Longitude , 4326) on the latitude and longitude provided for each location, my Geography column for each row is populated with the following:

Fitzroy, 0xE6100000010C292499D53BE642C0A7406667511F6240
Footscray, 0xE6100000010C89B7CEBF5DE642C02D23F59ECA1C6240

In my SQL Query, I have the following which works out the distance between both towns. Geo being my Geography column

DECLARE @s geography = 0xE6100000010C292499D53BE642C0A7406667511F6240 -- Fitzroy
DECLARE @t geography = 0xE6100000010C89B7CEBF5DE642C02D23F59ECA1C6240 -- Footscray
SELECT @s.STDistance(@t)

The result I get is

6954.44911927616

I then looked at formatting this as in Australia we go by KM so after some searching I found two solutions one for Miles and the other KM

So I changed Select statement to look like this

select @s.STDistance(@t)/1000 -- format to KM

My result is then

6.95444911927616

When I go to google maps and do a direction request between the locations provided above it says 10.2km (depending on traffic)

Now I'm new to this spatial data within SQL, why would I get a different result from google maps?

Also I would like to round this number so its easier to use within my where statement so I'm using Ceiling as shown here:

SELECT CEILING(@s.STDistance(@t)/1000)

Is ceiling the correct way to go?

Reason I need to round this is because we are allowing the end user to search by radius so if they pass in 50km I will then say

Where CEILING(@s.STDistance(@t)/1000) < 50

## T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Returning Rows Within Certain Distance In Miles From City Using Longitude And Latitude

Nov 19, 2014

I've got a working query which returns all leads within a supplied proximity to a city. I followed a tutorial I googled a couple months ago (can't find it now). It works, but would love others to look the query over (provided DDL and sample data) and tell me if it's as it should be.

Two things I don't like about query:

1. I have to do a UNION to another query that retrieves everything that is in the same city in order to have complete results.
2. very slow to retrieve results (> 1 minute)

Sample DDL: 2 tables
(
date_created datetime,
[contact_first_name] varchar(20),
[contact_last_name] varchar(20),
