SQL 2012 :: Pasting Query Results Into XL From SSMS

Mar 13, 2014

Previous to 2012, grid results from SSMS queries pasted into Excel beautifully and were easy to format.in 2008, The results from this query pasted into a spreadsheet with the query contained in a single Excel cell:

(sample - not the whole script)
select top 300
,convert(datetime,Last_execution_time) as Timestamp
from dbadmin.dbo.History_CPU_IO_ByQueryAndSP

This was wonderful. I could deliver to developers wonderfully tidy reports on query resource usage with timestamps along with which stored procedure the queries came from.

Can't do that in SSMS 2012. Try it. It's a disaster. The Query_text, when pasted, spreads across multiple Excel columns, including the ones designated for other data. The result is totally unreadable.how to make the query_text stay in it's own cell? I've tried converting query_text to varchar and ntext. Same results.

SQL Server 2012 :: Query Parses In SSMS But Not In SSIS?

Oct 20, 2015

The environment is Server 2008 32-bit, SQL 2012 SP2 Standard 32-bit (11.00.5058), and Visual Studio 10 SP1 (10.0.40219.1).

I have a query that begins with MERGE <tablename> USING (SELECT blah, blah, blah While in SSMS, I can parse the query with no issues. I can execute the query and see the results I expect. But when I put the same query into an Execute SQL Task in SSIS, it won't parse. It gives me one of those very informative messages that I so love - Query failed to parse. Incorrect syntax near the keyword "MERGE".

I don't know if the 32-bit/64-bit thing has any bearing or not, but I have taken the exact same project folder, copied it to a 64-bit box, and it works fine in both SSMS and SSIS. That one is running Server 2012 R2, SQL 2012 SP2 Standard (11.00.5343), and Visual Studio 10 SP1 (10.0.40219.1).

SQL Tools :: Change SSMS 2012 Default Query Save Location?

Dec 2, 2013

is there a way to change SSMS 2012 default query save location?


1. Open SSMS
2. Create new query
3. Click Save

I see "DocumentsSQL Server Management Studio" folder, but I want to change it to be "d:". How do I do this?
I tried:

1. [URL]- in folder "DocumentsSQL Server Management StudioSettingsSQL Server Management Studio" there is a file NewSettings.vssettings, setting it to "d:" or "d:" didn't work.

2. Changing HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftMicrosoft SQL Server100ToolsShell VisualStudioProjectsLocation didn't work too. There is no "Shell" under "110Tools"

Did I do something wrong, or is there another way?

QA/SSMS Results Caching

Mar 14, 2007

I am not sure this is the right forum for this question, but I would appreciate any pointers towards more appropriate forums.

I am attempting to replicate the data browsing performance of Microsoft's QA/SSMS in my own application. Even for very large datasets, one can typically scroll through a few hundred thousands rows without a problem. For queries this large, a generic DataGridView setup would take forever. Digging around using Process Explorer, I saw that QA/SSMS was loading the results into a (what I presume to be a memory-mapped) temporary file, which it used to cache the results for display.

Is there an example of how this is being done? I am assuming it is using unmanaged code, as I am not aware of any interfaces to memory mapped files in .NET. I don't have much experience here, so I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

SQL 2012 :: Group By In Sub Query To Get Desired Results

The query I have above counts ALL the Reg, I'd want it to give only the count that I'd get by using Group By clause i.e. S_W and CS.

SQL 2012 :: Query To Match Multiple Results And Average

Mar 3, 2014

I work for a school district and new requirement we were just given for scoring some student scores.

Everything will currently be in one table to keep track of students test scores for various things. This table will contain students information and a student will be shown more than once in the table. The Student ID is what we will key off of to find the multiple instances of the student. The table contains the following columns: studentName, StudentId, teacherName, focus1, controllingIdeas1, reading1, development1, organization1, conventions1, and contentUnderstanding1. All of the columns with a 1 at the end will be numeric values with possible decimal values.

What we need to be able to do is some how perform a search for these multiple entries of each student and when found, average the 2 scores for each 7 test categories. The result needs to be a single line for each student that gives the student name, student id, and the 7 test category averages exported to an csv file.

SQL 2012 :: Limiting Query Results With 3 Criteria For Each Record

Mar 20, 2015

I am trying to write a query that gives me the personal records from speed skaters on e.g. the 500 mtrs. I do this with the query:

SELECT cdsDistance AS Distance
, prsFirstName
, prsLastName
, min(crtFinalTime) AS MinTime
FROM tb....... INNER JOIN etc..
GROUP BY cdsDistance, prsFirstName, prsLastName
ORDER BY min(crtFinalTime)

In itself this works fine. However, there are complicating factors. Sometimes a speed skater has multiple PRs, meaning the he/she has the same fastest time more than once.

If these times are achieved on multple days, the 1st date is the official PR. (meaning: "Min of racedate")
If they are raced on the same day the 1st race is the PR (meaning: "Min of distancenumber")

Changing the code to:

SELECT cdsDistance AS Distance
, prsFirstName
, prsLastName
, MIN(crtFinalTime) AS MinTime
, MIN(cdsStartDate) AS RaceDate
, MIN(cdsDistanceNumber) AS DistanceNumber

FROM tb.......
GROUP BY cdsDistance, prsFirstName, prsLastName
ORDER BY min(crtFinalTime)

This gives me the wrong outcome because it gives me the "MIN" of every field, and they are not necessarily on the same row.

An option would be to calculate min(crtFinalTime), if for a person there is more than 1 result, calculate min of date, and then (if there is still more than 1 row) min of distancenumber.

Seems complicated, and I have the feeling there must be a better way (apart from: how to get this code)

Stacking subqueries in the FROM statement seems like a option be costly (time wise). There are more than 10 million rows (and growing) to run through.

As an example a few times:

DistanceFirst nameLast name Time Date Distance nr.
500 Yuya Oikawa 34.49 201311155
500 Yuya Oikawa 34.49 201311153
500 Yuya Oikawa 34.49 201311172

Yuya has 3 best times (34.49), 15-11-2013 is the 1st date, then distance nr 3 is the 1st distance raced. Therefore the 2nd row is the only row I would like to get in my endresult.

SQL 2012 :: SSMS 2012 Database Connection Dialog Hangs

Feb 13, 2015

I have several users with an unusual problem with SSMS 2012. When they attempt to connect to a database using the "Connect to Server" dialog box, the connection just hangs. Sometimes after about 15 minutes the connection will be successful. Other attempts simply spin seemingly endlessly. Users experiencing this issue are both running SSMS 2012 on Win 7 Pro (64 bit). The following troubleshooting steps have been tried:

1. When the user runs SSMS "As Administrator" the connections work almost instantly. (Elevating privileges is not a solution in our environment)
2. Wireshark shows that SSMS does not try to hit the SQL server when the user experiencing this issue clicks connect.
3. I can create a new virgin user on the PC and that login experiences the same problem.
4. A complete rip and re-install of SSMS 2012 does not resolve the issue.

SQL Server 2012 :: Adding 2 COUNT Statements Results In Heavy Query

Jan 28, 2014

These separate COUNT queries are very fast:

SELECT COUNT(id) as viewcount from location_views WHERE createdate>DATEADD(dd,-30,getdate()) AND objectid=357
SELECT COUNT(id)*2 as clickcount FROM extlinks WHERE createdate>DATEADD(dd,-30,getdate()) AND objectid=357

But I want to add the COUNT statements, so this is what I did:

select COUNT(vws.id)+COUNT(lnks.id)*2 AS totalcount
FROM location_views vws,extlinks lnks
WHERE (vws.createdate>DATEADD(dd,-30,getdate()) AND vws.objectid=357)
(lnks.createdate>DATEADD(dd,-30,getdate()) AND lnks.objectid=357)

Turns out the query becomes immensely slow. There must be something I'm doing wrong here which results in such bad performance, but what is it?

SQL Server 2012 :: Query To Search Full-text Indexed Table And Return Results

DECLARE @searchStringWild nvarchar(275);

SET @searchString = 'first';
SET @searchStringWild = UPPER('"' +@searchString+ '*"');

SQL 2012 :: Ssms Reports Library Not Registered

Nov 21, 2012

Windows 7 pro 64.
8gb ram.

Already have SQL2008 installed, and it works fine and great.Needed to install 2012 alongside for another project. Heard it should be fine to have both running. So I did. Installed MDS, DQS, SSIS, Service, and management tools. Launching SSMS 2012, when I click the "new query" button... I get the following error: library not registered. (exception from hresult:0x8002801D (type_e_libnotregistered))

If I connect object explorer to a server (local or otherwise), and try to script an object, it gives me the same error and then crashes the application. If I launch SSMS 2008, I can use it to connect to 2012 instance. So I know the instance and service are running correctly. It looks like its just the SSMS that is a problem.

SQL 2012 :: Ssms Display In Vertical Tabs?

Feb 27, 2014

I liked the default appearance of SSMS in 2005 and 2008. 2012 is lousy by default.

My quesion is whether it can be made to approximate the way it behaved in 2008.

What I liked: Registered Servers and Object Explorer resided on nested vertical tabs on the left-hand side of the screen. Queries stacked up on the right-hand side of the screen.

I managed to get the Registered Servers and Object explorer to display with nested vertical tabs (tabs at the top, rather than the bottom - that's ok). But if there aren't any other vertical tabbed displays, then the tab on top fills the screen. There's no point to that. Both Registered Servers and Object explorer are narrow trees. The rest of the screen is white nothingness.

If a query is opened, it then fills the screen - empty. If I want that in a vertical tab I have to manually make it one (right click, choose New Vertical Tab Group).

s there a way to make the doggone thing behave?

The way I got the Registered Servers and Object explorer to behave this way was to right click on a tab and play with the vertical tabbing options.

I'm running SP1, version 11.0.3000.0.

SQL 2012 :: Restricting What A User Can View In SSMS

Feb 5, 2015

I want to provide access to one of my users to a database on the production server. I do not want this user to be able to view anything other than the tables in that database, or the other databases on my production server.

I gave him access to one DB - TestDB- and made him data_reader on that DB. I had set that as his default database. However, when he logs in using SSMS he can see from Object Explorer a listing of all the databases on that server, although he can't access any of those. This is an external user and I don't want him to see any of that stuff, including other objects (SPs, Views, etc.,) even within TestDB.

To summarize, I want to grant access to a windows user to see/select from ONLY tables in TestDB of my production server, and I do not want him to be able to see any objects other than tables of this DB from SSMS.

SQL 2012 :: Encrypting Client Connection From SSMS

I used the selfssl.exe tool to generate a certificate on my db server, successfully added to Personal Certificates in MMC, added R/W permissions for the service account to the cert, selected the new certificate in the protocols for mssql and restarted the service. So far so good, however when trying to connect from SSMS with encryption check box checked I get the following error:

A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: SSL Provider, error: 0 - The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: -2146893019)

The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.

When I look in MMC, the only intended purpose for the certificate is "Server authentication" and I'm not able to add "Client authentication". Does selfssl.exe not support client authentication?

SQL 2012 :: AlwaysOn Read-intent Via SSMS Not Routing?

Nov 15, 2014

I setup an AG with a listener (AO1) on three servers.

Server1 = Primary, Readable Secondary = No
Server2 = Secondary, Readable Secondary = Read-intent only
Server3 = Secondary, Readable Secondary = Read-intent only

Connecting to AO1 with default settings, I end up on Server1.

If I attempt to connect to AO1 with specifying ;ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly (with or without specifying the db name) in SSMS, still lands me on Server1.

Also on topic, in this scenario I would actually want Server1 to be a readable secondary (in the event of a fail-over). So If I did set it as Yes, even If I do get the issue above working, won't I always land on Server1 then?
