SQL Server 2008 :: How To Get Rid Of NULL In Results From Case When

Sep 21, 2015

I'm trying to get a result set without the NULLs. Here is the code I'm using. I'd like the results to look like:

17285204 90715 090715

17285204 99420 099420
17285204 90471 090471
17285204 NULL G0444

create table #Test
AppNum varchar(10),
CPT varchar(10),
src char(1)
insert into #Test(AppNum, CPT, src) values('17285204','090471','b')

SQL Server 2008 :: Elegant Way For Returning All Results When Subquery Returns No Results?

Mar 25, 2015

I have four tables: Customer (CustomerId INT, CountyId INT), County (CountyId INT), Search(SearchId INT), and SearchCriteria (SearchCriteriaId INT, SearchId INT, CountyId INT, [others not related to this]).

I want to search Customer based off of the Search record, which could have multiple SearchCriteria records. However, if there aren't any SearchCriteria records with CountyId populated for a given Search, I want it to assume to get all Customer records, regardless of CountyId.

Right now, I'm doing it this way.

DECLARE @SearchId INT = 100
CountyId IN
SELECT CASE WHEN EXISTS(SELECT CountyId FROM SearchCriteria WHERE SearchId = @SearchId)
THEN SearchCriteria.CountyId

[Code] .....

This works; it just seems cludgy. Is there a more elegant way to do this?

Sql Server 2005: Results To Text - Null Value

Oct 12, 2007

easy question:

If I use "results to text" option when executing a query in Ms SQL Server Management Studio null value is inserted as 'NULL' string in the result. Is it possible to have blank ('') string instead of 'NULL' in the result in 2005 version.

It must be possible, but I could not find it in tools/options

thank you in advance

SQL Server 2008 :: Date Manipulation And CASE Statements

Mar 1, 2015

I have a question on date manipulation functions and CASE statements

My sql is passed the following parameter's and performs a select using a manipulation on these date param's to get a start and end date range depending on the conditions;-

monthColHeader = eg 'Feb 2015'
defaultStartDate and defaultEndDate
filterStartDate and filterEndDate.

These are my conditions;-

if defaultStart and End = filterStart and End use monthColHeader for the date range
if defaultStart and End != filetrStart and End AND the month/year of filterStart and filterEnd match then use the filterStart & End month/Year with the monthColHeader to get the date range
if defaultStart and End != filetrStart and End AND the month/year of filterStart and filterEnd DON't match use filterStart Day and monthColHeader for our start date and monthColHeader for our end date.

When I say use monthColHeader I mean like this;-

(r.dbAddDate >= (CAST('@Request.monthColHeader ~' AS DATETIME)) AND r.dbAddDate < DATEADD(mm,1,'@Request.monthColHeader ~'))

This sql works for converting say 'Feb 2015' to '2015-02-01' & '2015-02-28'....

SQL Server 2008 :: Optimizing Join With CASE Statement

Jul 20, 2015

I have data that I want at multiple granularities, 5,15,30 and 60 minutes. To reduce repetition, I have put them all in the same table, so that there is a column for 5,15,30 and 60 minutes, with a filtered index on each of the columns that removes the nulls. This means that each day will have 288 slots, but only 24 of the slots are filled in for 60 min data, and all of them are filled for 5 minute data.

I have another column that specifies the interval granularity, and my first thought was to access my data through a join, where I can use a CASE statement, and depending on the data granularity necessary, it will look at a different column:

AND d.settlement_key =
CASE st.interval_granularity
WHEN 5 THEN [5_min_settlement_key]
WHEN 15 THEN [15_min_settlement_key]
WHEN 60 THEN [60_min_settlement_key]

Despite the presence of the indexes on the columns, then the process seems to be quite slow, I think probably due to the fact that any query plan isn't going to know beforehand which of the columns it is going to use for any given dataset, until it actually starts to run, so it may not be optimised.

How I could optimise this based on the given structure? Maybe there are hints to be added to the join, or maybe I can clear the query plan each time the SQL is run? My other option for dealing with the data of different granularity was to use one column and repeat the data multiple times, each at the different granularity, but this makes my data, row and table sizes much higher, as we are adding just a column for each additional granularity. Would this work any better in future versions of SQL server, maybe with column store indexes?

SQL Server 2008 :: Case When Select - Restrict View?

SQL Server 2008 :: Allow Null On Data Type Money?

Oct 15, 2015

Should data type money allow nulls? Are there valid arguments both pro and con?

Yes, there is the age-old question regarding how one might interpret a NULL found in any column - does it mean the amount is not known or that the amount is zero (in the case of a numeric type)? You get the drift...

Other than that, though - are there any practical considerations an old data hound ought to be aware of?

Check For NULL In CASE

SELECT whatever_field, CASE LEN(DrAccount)   WHEN 12 THEN DrAccount   ELSE CASE (Note1)     WHEN NULL THEN Location + DrAccount     ELSE Note1 + DrAccount     END   END AS Account FROM Table1 The purpose of the CASE(Note1) is when Note1 column is null, return Location+DrAccount. The actual result is when Note1 column is null, it always returns null, Location+DrAccount is not executed. When Note1 column is not null, it returns correctly Note1+DrAccount.

SQL Server 2008 :: Populate One Dataset In SSRS Based On Results From Another Dataset Within Same Project?

Dataset1 pulls property id's and other sales data from a table (2014_COST) based on the user's parameters. I have set up another table (AUDITS) that I would like to use in dataset6. This table has 3 columns (Property ID's, Sales Price and Sales Date). I would like for dataset6 to pull the Property ID's that are NOT contained in the results from dataset1. In other words, I'd like the results of dataset6 to show me the property id's that are contained in the AUDITS table but which are not being pulled into dataset1. Both tables are in the same database.

Case Statement Returning Blank Results?

Sep 19, 2014

I have a query that pulls a list of organizations. I'm trying to use a CASE statement to add a column of names based on the relationship of the individual to that organization. It is possible for two people at the organization to both have that relationship to the organization. Currently, when I pull my results, I get all the individual's names for all the organizations, but I'm also getting a row where there is no name, something like:

Company1 ''
Company1 'Individual1'
Company1 'Individual2'

Some of the organizations, they have no one with the relationship, but for all the organizations that do have someone in the position I want to not see the blank row. My case statement is:

(Select ind_customer.cst_key WHERE ixo_rlt_code = 'Relationship' )

Case Satement In Where For If Number Not Null?

I am trying to setup a query that receives input variables one being a number which could be null (could receive as string).

What I want to happen is if a number is sent the data is filtered by that number but if it is empty no filtering is performed I think this involves using a case statement in a where clause but can't work out the syntax I am using sql 200 server.

I think the case statement is something like this:
(week_no = CASE @week WHEN null THEN '#' ELSE @week END)
or maybe I am way off

I considered using like @inNumber + '%' but this would cause the problem of if I inoput 2 it would also return 20's 200's ...

SQL Server 2008 :: Update Null Enabled Field Without Interfering With Rest Of INSERT / UPDATE

Apr 16, 2015

If I have a table with 1 or more Nullable fields and I want to make sure that when an INSERT or UPDATE occurs and one or more of these fields are left to NULL either explicitly or implicitly is there I can set these to non-null values without interfering with the INSERT or UPDATE in as far as the other fields in the table?


FirstName VARCHAR(50) NULL,
LastName VARCHAR(50) NULL,

If an INSERT looks like any of the following what can I do to change the NULL being assigned to DateAdded to a real date, preferable the value of GetDate() at the time of the insert? I've heard of INSTEAD of Triggers but I'm not trying tto over rise the entire INSERT or update just the on (maybe 2) fields that are being left as null or explicitly set to null. The same would apply for any UPDATE where DateModified is not specified or explicitly set to NULL. I would want to change it so that DateModified is not null on any UPDATE.

INSERT INTO dbo.MYTABLE( FirstName, LastName, DateAdded)

INSERT INTO dbo.MYTABLE( FirstName, LastName)

INSERT INTO dbo.MYTABLE( FirstName, LastName, DateAdded)
