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:
Positve
1 thru 2147483647 = 0.0.0.1 - 127.255.255.255
Negative
-2147483648 thru -1 = 128.0.0.0 - 255.255.255.255
Conversion
positive
x/2^24 . (x/2^24)/2^16 . etc . etc
negative
(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?

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!

Creating A Blank Row In A Table Between Positive &&amp; 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?

Thanks,

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
UUUDUUUDUUUD1230123012301175
------------0000000000001163
UDUUUDUUUDUU3012301230121082

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
UUDUUUDUUUUU-----------07
UDUUUDUUUUUU------------7

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?

A SqlDataReader Is Returning An Int, When It Should Be Returning A Tinyint

Sep 25, 2007

I am opening a simple command against a view which joins 2 tables, so that I can return a column which is defined as a tinyint in one of the tables.  The SELECT looks like this:
 SELECT TreatmentStatus FROM vwReferralWithAdmissionDischarge WHERE ClientNumber = 138238 AND CaseNumber = 1 AND ProviderNumber = 89
 The TreatmentStatus column is a tinyint.  When I execute that above SQL SELECT statement in SQL Server Management Studio (I am using SQL Server 2005) I get a value of 2.  But when I execute the same SQL SELECT statement as a part of a SqlDataReader and SqlCommand, I get a return data type of integer and a value of 1.
Why?

I unfortunately since this is for a test database that I have put the data and log on the same device.

My questions are:

1) Why do I have negative numbers?

2) Should I be concerned about this?

3) for a live database can I drop the log and put the log on another device? What do I need to do?

4) has anybody seen this before?

5)what can I use to get accurate numbers?

THanks. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Device Sizes Are Negative

How To Round With Negative Numbers?

Jul 23, 2005

I am using a select statement to obtain a result set back with aggregateddata. The problem is that I am seeing column data with 11 to 13 digitsafter the decimal point. I tried using the STR function, but then the OrderBy clause does not sort properly because there are negative numbers in theaggregated data... I tried using Round, but that does no good either - itstill ends up displaying too many digits after the decimal point. Right nowI'm just using Query Analyzer to display the data, so I can live with it fornow. But, in the future, my app will be getting a result set back and Iwould prefer not to have to go through each row and do a round on it fromthe program. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?Thanks for any help,Bob
