SQL Server 2012 :: Compare Two XML Variables?

Mar 19, 2015

I'm rewriting a huge FOR XML EXPLICIT procedure to use FOR XML PATH, and need to compare previous output to the refactored one, so i didn't mess up XML structure.

The thing is, i'm not sure that SQL Server will always generate exactly same xml **string**, so i'd rather not compare by:


nor do i want to manually validate every node, since the generated xml-structure is quite complex.

compare xmls by their "semantic value" ?

SQL Server 2008 :: Compare If Row-Combination Exists In Other Table

Mar 10, 2015

I've the following two tables:

create table #temp1 (name varchar(5), id int)
insert into #temp1 (name, id)
select 'a', 5
select 'a', 8


As a result I would need every name from #temp2, where both searchred id's (5 & 8) from #temp1 are included.In this example i would like to get 'e' as a result, because in #temp2 'e' has the id's 5, 8 and 25.I've tried using cross apply, but cross apply returns every Name that have one of the ids... in this case it would also return 'c'...

Selectdistinct b.name
Selectdistinct name
, id
wherename = 'a'
) as a
cross join(
Selectdistinct name
, id
) as b
wherea.id = b.id

SQL Server 2008 :: Easy Way To Compare Contents Of Objects Between 2 Different Databases?

Jul 20, 2015

Is there an easy way to compare the contents of objects between 2 different databases? For example, say I had 2 databases, My_DB_1 and My_DB_2, each with a SEC_User table. Say I wanted to do an object-to-object comparison between databases to see if there were any differences. Here's some sample SQL:

use My_DB_1
select * from sys.dm_sql_referencing_entities('dbo.sec_user', 'object')

use My_DB_2
select * from sys.dm_sql_referencing_entities('dbo.sec_user', 'object')

Say that the result sets above both returned a SEC_GetUser sproc object ref. Is there a way to write SQL that will compare the SEC_GetUser sprocs (and other objects in the above rowsets) from both databases? For example, if My_DB_1.SEC_GetUser returns an extra column in the result set than My_DB_2.SEC_GetUser then I'd like my comparison SQL to return a single column "IsDifferent" with SEC_GetUser as a row....

SQL Server 2008 :: Shortcut For Table Variables?

Jul 27, 2015

any shortcut strategies for table variables similar to shortcut strategies for temp tables? For example, the following SQL will create a temp table named #MyTable with all of the columns from student and then select the top 10 rows of student data into #MyTable:

select top 10 * into #MyTable from Student

Is there any type of similar or equivalent shortcut for table variables like:

select top 10 * into @MyTable from Student

if I want to select rows from Student into a @MyTable table variable then I need to create the @MyTable table variable with a column structure like a normal table which is more time-consuming than using the temp table approach.

Scripting Variables With Schema Compare Via Msbuild?

Jun 12, 2015

I'm trying to automate comparing the dacpacs we're generating from out builds against our production server to monitor drift.However, we use scripting variables to define cross database references.  The schema compare is showing up all the objects which reference the other database via scripting variable as being different to what is on the server i.e. it reports a change between a table referenced as  [$(db)].dbo.Table in the dacpac  and db.dbo.Table in the target database.

When I do a comparison in Visual studio between the project and the target database the variables seem to be appropriately replaced and the differences don't show.  Obviously this is using a project instead of a dacpac but I'm hoping I can get the dacpac/db compare to behave similarly to the project/db comparison.

Is there a way to define what the scripting variables should resolve to when I run the comparison via msbuild?

Edit:  I would prefer not to deploy the dacpac and diff the deployed db against the target database but if that's the only way....

SQL Server 2008 :: String As Primary Key

Feb 26, 2015

I have tables in database where a VARCHAR(50) string is unique identifier. The database currently has an integer identity column as clustered primary key, and there's a non-clustered index on string column. The customer always queries based on a defined set of the identifier (string) column.

I wonder if someone sees an advantage of adding a persisted computed column to the table as the checksum of the string column, and then create a non-clustered index on the checksum and the string. When a customer requests data, we would compute the checksum of the customer provided identifier and add to the where clause or join, that the checksum and string must match.

Will SQL Server perform checksum check (integer) and only if it succeeds, perform the string check, in which case I see an advantage of added the checksum column? Or will SQL Server always check for both the checksum and string, in which case the additional column only adds unnecessary overhead? To note is the fact that the table(s) will have millions of rows, but the customer will request data for at at most, 100 or so identifiers.

SQL Server 2008 :: How To Extract Part Of A String

May 11, 2015

Here is a sample order # we used for one of our shipments: BL-53151-24954-1-0001-33934

I need to extract the "24954" portion of that order # while within an INNER JOIN, but not sure how.

My problem is we have 2 order tables: OrderTable1 contains a field with the full order #. OrderTable2 contains a field with only the "24954" portion. I need to JOIN on these 2 fields somehow.

So an example would be the following:

OrderTable1.Full_Order_No: BL-53151-24954-1-0001-33934
OrderTable2.Order_No: 24954

, ot2.Order_No
OrderTable1 ot1
INNER JOIN OrderTable2 ot2 ON ot2.Order_No = [do something here to truncate ot1.Full_Order_No]

How can I do this?

Few notes:

-the 1st part of the order number, "BL-53151-" will ALWAYS be the same. It's our client # which will never change for the purpose of this query.
-The portion I need (24954) can be more or less than the 5 current digits.
-There will always be 6 portions to the order number, split up between 5 dashes.

SQL Server 2008 :: Get Date Format From String?

May 28, 2015

How can we identify the Date Format from a String in SQL Server.

I might get an input from external source as "MM-DD-YYYY" or "DD-MM-YYYY" or "YYYY-MM-DD" or "YYYY-DD-MM", all i have to do is return the same with Current Date in the same format as Input.

Ex :

1. "02-20-2013" -> "05-28-2015"
2. "2014-04-19" -> "2015-05-28"

Any method to identify the DateFormat then it would have made the job very easy.

SQL Server 2008 :: Stored Procedure Text String Replace

Apr 16, 2015

We have a legacy database that have hundreds of stored procedures.

The previous programmar uses a string like servername.databasename.dbo.tablename in the stored procedures.
We now have migrated the database to a new server. The old server is either needed to be replaced by the new server name, or remove it.

I don't know why he used servername as part of the fully qualified name, we don't use linked servers. So I think better removing the servername in all the stored procedures.

I know I can do a generate script, and replace the text and then use alter procedure to recreate all the stored procedures. But since hundreds of them, is there a programmatically way to replace them?

SQL Server 2008 :: Split Comma Separated String Into Columns?

Apr 24, 2015

Our front end saves all IP addresses used by a customer as a comma separated string, we need to analyse these to check for blocked IPs which are all stored in another table.

A LIKE statement comparing each string with the 100 or so excluded IPs will be very expensive so I'm thinking it would be less so to split out the comma separated values into tables.

The problem we have is that we never know how many IPs could be stored against a customer, so I'm guessing a function would be the way forward but this is the point I get stuck.

I can remove the 1st IP address into a new column and produce the new list ready for the next removal, also as part of this we would need to create new columns on the fly depending on how many IPs are in the column.

This needs to be repeated for each row

, LEFT(IP_List, CHARINDEX(',', IP_List) - 1) AS IP_1
, REPLACE(IP_List, LEFT(IP_List, CHARINDEX(',', IP_List) +0), '') AS NewIPList1
FROM IpExclusionTest

SQL Server 2008 :: Finding Connection String For ChefTec Software

Jun 16, 2015

This question is a long shot because it requires familiarity with a specific application called ChefTec which is a program for the restaurant industry, but I'm giving it a try because I have nowhere else to go to get the information I need. I am the developer for a competitor of this program, and some ChefTec users want to switch to our product and have their data, which is in SQL Server 2005 or 2008, converted.

My plan is to create a utility that the users could run to convert the data (written in Delphi, though that doesn't really matter). The problem is that I can't determine the connection string that ChefTec uses. It doesn't seem to be stored anywhere obvious (an ini file or the registry). When ChefTec is installed it either installs SQL Server or gives the option of using an existing instance, but there's no way for me to know how it was set up on any given machine. The program must be using some internal logic to create the connection string but that's not accessible to me.
