SQL Server 2012 :: How To Find Out If Double Loaded A File Programmatically

Apr 24, 2015

I was just doing a table import task (right click database name/Tasks/Import Data), not knowing my boss had just loaded the same file. it did not warn me that the table currently existed. It just appended the same information to the same table, doubling it. I fixed that one, but, it seems that I might have done this myself in the last couple of weeks, and I'd like to find that table, and there have been a LOT of table loads.

I'm thinking I could get the difference between tables by comparing:

select distinct count(*) from tblname
select count(*) from tblname

But how do I incorporate this into some sort of proc that will go through all the tables and let me know where the issue is? I'm swamped and don't have the time to go through each table manually.

I have code that shows me row counts, and have been able to eliminate a few tables from contention, as they are loading monthly data that should only increase minorly month to month, so, no double jumps there.

Delete Double Loaded Recs...??

Sep 11, 2000

I'm using SQL Server 7.0. I have a table which has had some records double loaded into it and some triple loaded. I need to delete all instances of a record except for 1. The records are identical with no unique identifier. Here is what I'm talking about.

Currently in the table is:

1 07/07/2000 D
1 07/07/2000 D
1 07/07/2000 D
2 07/07/2000 A
2 07/07/2000 A

What I need in the table is:

1 07/07/2000 D
2 07/07/2000 A

Does anyone know how I might be able to do this?

Thanks in advance,

SQL Server 2014 :: Find Double Records Within DateTime Range

Apr 13, 2015

I have a query question.

Consider a table with the following structure:
RecordID (PK - int) - RecordDate (DateTime)

I need to find all records that fall within a 7 day period slot based on the first RecordDate of a specific slot.

Example, consider the following records:
RecordID - RecordDate

1 - 2015-04-01 14:00
2 - 2015-04-03 15:00
3 - 2015-04-03 16:05
4 - 2015-04-03 19:23
5 - 2015-04-06 09:15
6 - 2015-04-06 11:30
7 - 2015-04-07 12:00
8 - 2015-04-09 15:15

The result of the query I'd like should look something like this


So basically I'd like to leave record 3 and 4 out because they fall within 24 hours of record 2 and I'd like to leave record 6 out because it falls within 24 hours of record 5.I'd tried working with a CTE and set a dateadd(d, 1, recorddate), join it on itself and use a between From / To filter on the join but that didn't work. I don't think NTILE will work with this?

SQL Server 2008 :: DOUBLE Precision For Calculations / Convert To Double?

May 19, 2011

I am performing a series of calculations where accuracy is very important, so have a quick question about single vs double precision variables in SQL 2008.

I'm assuming that there is an easy way to cast a variable that is currently stored as a FLOAT as a DOUBLE prior to these calculations for reduced rounding errors, but I can't seem to find it.

I've tried CAST and CONVERT, but get errors when I try to convert to DOUBLE.

For example...


both give the same 6 decimal place approximation, and the 6 decimals make me think this is single precision.

But I get errors if I try to change the word FLOAT to DOUBLE in either one of those commands...


gives "Incorrect syntax near )"


gives "Incorrect syntax near ,"

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Find All Instances Of String That Contain Certain Letters - Escape Double Quote

How To Programmatically Find Out Whether Snapshot Agent Has Finished?

Oct 15, 2007


I want to generate a new snapshot using stored procedures. I want to wait for the snapshot files to be created and then execute a stored procedure. What's the best way to determine that the snapshot has completed successfully? I thought of doing something like:

exec msdb.dbo.sp_help_job
@job_name = @job_name
@job_aspect = 'job',
@execution_status = 1

however I can't put the results of that proc into a temp table because I get this error:
Msg 8164, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_get_composite_job_info, Line 72
An INSERT EXEC statement cannot be nested.

Any ideas? I'd like a T-SQL solution.

Double Quotes In CSV File

Oct 24, 2006

I have a lot of data coming in from CSV files.  I have many CSV files (~20), with varying amounts of data- but some are quite large (largest file is ~230mb)

I'm trying to import it into a SQL database via SSIS, but the data is a little bit frustrating. 

I have data that looks like this:

"Text from vendor ""Vendor Name, Inc."" blah blah", "Next string", "", 1234

Many things to notice here - as well you can imagine some of the difficulties here.

After parsing, this data should have 4 columns-

Column1                                                                          Column2              Column3               Column4

Text From Vendor "Vendor Name, Inc." blah blah      Next string            <blank>                1234

The biggest problems stem from the double quotes mixed in with the comma because it is a comma delimited file with quotes as the text qualifier.  The other problem is the double quotes with blank text ... which prevents me from doing a replace on the double quotes ... I think ...

What would be your suggestions to help me parse this out?  (don't forget, some of these are large files with about 260,000 records- )

Thanks in advance,

DB Engine :: Double Row Added From A Source Table That Did Not Have Double Record

Aug 28, 2014

Every night we connect to a remote server using Linked Server and copy details from that database to a loading table, then load it into the 'real' table in our own environment. The remove database we load it from has indexes/primary keys that match the 'real', however the 'loading' table itself does not have any indexes or primary keys, both are SQL Server 2005 machines.

In the loading table we first of all truncate it then do a select insert statement from the remote server, then we then truncate the 'real' table and load iit from the 'loading' table.

The issue is when we attempted to load it into our 'real' table from our loading table there was a duplicate row, and our process failed with a Primary Key violation.

I checked the source with does have the same primary key's in, it did not contain a duplicate row and I checked the loading table and that did contain a duplicate row.

My question this is in what circumstances this could happen ?

Double Quotes In ASCII File

Feb 1, 2006

I've an issue with double-quotes in CSV file. One of the columns may contain this kind of value: "STATUS ""H"" "

I've got quote set to "

The file source fails on such records.

I found this thread and Scott tells us there that the file can't contain " in data.

Is this 100% correct?

I've got mutliple text columns and the pain is that I don't know which column might have these cases in future. To create a script means to write my own file parser for all files I use.

Any ideas?

Reporting Services :: SSRS 2012 - CSV Rendering / Turn Off Double Quote Qualifier

Sep 29, 2015

I have scoured the Microsoft forums and the internet to find out how I can generate the output of a CSV report that has double quotes around each value and is comma separated as follows:


If I try to concatenate double quotes around the values in the stored procedure or in the RDL, two double quotes appear around each value as follows. 


I understand that this is because the default qualifier is double quote.  What I see is that every time a double quote appears in a value (along with commas and line breaks), the qualifier will activate.  Is there any way to turn this off for double quotes? 

If I try to enter:  <Qualifier>false</Qualifier>, the word "false" appears as the qualifier instead.

The only way I have found that produces a result similar to what I need ("Abcd","123456","Efghi","789012","JKLMN") is if I add a line break - chr(10) in the RDL in each field. However, this won't work for me because I can't have line breaks in each field in the output. 

Note that in SSRS 2005, I was able to produce the report output as I state above by setting the field delimiter and qualifier as follows:


This essentially turned the field delimiter and qualifier off, as the values entered would never appear in the data.  I then could add double quotes and commas in the RDL.  This used to work in the old version but does not anymore.

SQL Server 2012 :: Find Numbers From A String

Apr 8, 2014

I have a string and i want to get only the numbers from right.

For example if I have the string Like '123756zxfggr123456' then it will show me only 123456 or if i have the string like
'4vbz67xfggr123dfd' then it will show me only 123 or if i have the string like '123756zxfgg43r5' then it will show me only 5.

I got a function where it gives me all the numbers in a string but I don't need that

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.udf_GetNumeric
(@strAlphaNumeric VARCHAR(256))

[Code] ....

If I ran the select statement it gives me the result 111123456 but i want only 123456 or if i select

SELECT dbo.udf_GetNumeric('111zxfggr6587fhhfkwee') AS 'Num' it will show me 6587.

select * from SampleI have here sample data given. What I want to do is, I want to check the RefID which is not having proper order of sequence number. If you see the RefID 1000, 1001 they are having properly sequence order in SeqNo field. But it is not in RefID 1002. RefID 1002 does not have proper order. It is because user has deleted a row which was having seqno 2. So i want to get what are all the RefID's are not having properly sequenced. So that I would be able to know these are all the RefID's are affected by delete statement that was done by user.

SQL Server 2012 :: Find Changed Rows (and Row Prior To Changes)

Jul 22, 2014

I have a table (represented by #Events) that holds modifications made to another table. I do have some control over the table structure and indexing. I want to pull all of the change records that were made between two dates.

The tricky part is to include the previous version of each record, which will usually be found prior to the start date in question.

The code that I have provided below works. So you can use it to easily see what should be returned. But it's very slow in production.

Any better method to pull this data together?

-- Production version of this table has 4.5 million rows (roughly 1,000 rows per day)
-- Primary key is on L4Ident (clustered)
-- nonclustered index on ProcessDate, LinkRL4
DROP TABLE dbo.#Events;
DROP TABLE dbo.#Results;
CREATE TABLE dbo.#Events (
L4Ident int IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,

SQL Server 2012 :: Find Out If Whole Column Of Data In A Table Is Empty?

Dec 2, 2013

I have created some dynamic sql to check a temporary table that is created on the fly for any columns that do contain data. If they do the column name is added to a dynamic sql, if not they are excluded. This looks like:

If (select sum(Case when [Sat] is null then 0 else 1 end) from #TABLE) >= 1 begin set @OIL_BULK = @OIL_BULK + '[Sat]' +',' END

However, I am currently running this on over 230 columns and large tables 1.3 mil rows and it is quite slow. How I can dynamically create a sql script that only selects the columns in the table where there is data in a speedier manner. Unfortunately it has to be on the fly because the temporary table is created on the fly.
