SQL Server 2008 :: Not Finding A Record With A Space In The Middle Of String

May 19, 2015

Ok following scenario

create table dbo.ADAssets
(Computername nvarchar(max))
insert into dbo.ADAssets
('AIRLBEOF3565 CNF:4e926e06-6f62-4864-aebd-6311543d',

So if execute the following

select Computername
from dbo.ADAssets
where Computername like

I get both records,but if I do this

select *
from dbo.ADAssets
where Computername in
'AIRLBEOF3565 CNF:4e926e06-6f62-4864-aebd-6311543d',

I only get AIRLBEOF3565

So the big picture is that I need to compare 2 tables to find records that match & don't but that I get matches that shouldn't be & matches that aren't.

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.

How To Insert A Record In The Middle Of A DB

Well, how do you do it?  I've not seen any report on this... so could it be next to impossible? 

Say you have 10 records, 1-10 and you want to insert a new record between record 4 and record 5 in a SQL database, just how do you code it?   And oh, each record uses the auto ID increment feature.

Finding Database Sizes And Unallocated Space On A Server Wide Scale

Apr 22, 2008

Morning forum,

I'm having a problem to which I'm sure the answer is simple...

All I want is a list of databases on my server with their allocated size and the free space within. Something similar to the first table that sp_spaceused gives you but on a server wide scale.

As I say, I'm sure there's a simple solution out there, but alas Google has failed me.

Thanks in advance,

SQL Server 2008 :: Finding Database Connections Not Visible

Jul 15, 2015

I need to find a way to identify SPIDS where queries are connected to certain databases using the 4 dot notation instead of actually being connected to the database in question.

For instance, I connect and my default database is MASTER. In MASTER, instead of typing USE MyDb ahead of my query, I just type my query as:

SELECT Col1, Col2
FROM MyDB.dbo.MyTable

The above is the simple scenario. We usually have queries connecting 3 or 4 user dbs together. So database1 might have a query pointing to database2. What I need is a way to identify the SPIDS that are connecting to database2 despite being in database1.

SQL 2012 :: Removing Consecutive Characters From Middle Of A String

Apr 14, 2015

I usually do this through Access so I'm not too familiar with the string functions in SQL. My question is, how do you remove characters from the middle of a string?

String value is 10 characters long.
The string value is X000001250.
The end result should look like, X1250.

I've tried mixing/matching multiple string functions with no success. The only solution I have come up with removes ALL of the zeros, including the tailing zero. The goal is to only remove the consecutive zeroes in the middle of the string.

SQL Server 2008 :: Finding Backup File Size In Advance?

Mar 8, 2015

My backups are failing sometimes.My db size is around 400 GB and we are taking backup to the remote server. Free size available on the disk is showing 600 GB but my database full backup run more than 10 hrs and failed. The failure reason is there is not enough space on the disk.

What could be the possible failure reasons? It has more than the the database size on the backup server but why it is showed that msg on the job failures. I noticed same thing occurred couple of times in the past.

Is there any way to find how much the backup file will be generate before we run the backup job?

i.e. If we run the full backup of test1 database now, it will generate ....bak file for that test1 db

currently we are using maintenance plan and with compression (2008R2) and the database has TDE enabled

SQL Server 2008 :: How To Delete Or Drop Index To Free Up Space

May 31, 2015

I am new to mssql server. There is a table on one of my databases that occupies a lot of space. And the space usage is as follows: (all values in KB)

reserved: 42329064
data: 16272288
index: 26050032
unused: 6744

This table takes up almost 80% of my database size, and the information is this table just captures the time spent by a user on the website(not very critical data)

I would like to know how to delete the entire index (which is what is occupying most space) to free up disk space. the index is a clustered index.
