SQL Server 2012 :: How To Return User-defined Row When A Record Doesn't Exists

Dec 29, 2014

What I want to do is return a row of data when my query doesn't return a record. I have two tables:

SeqNo smallint NULL,
Payment decimal(10, 2) NULL

[Code] ....

So when I run the following query:

SELECT 'abc' + '-' + CAST(SeqNo AS VARCHAR) + '-' + CAST(Payment AS VARCHAR) FROM abc WHERE SeqNo = 1
SELECT 'def' + '-' + CAST(SeqNo AS VARCHAR) + '-' + CAST(Payment AS VARCHAR) FROM def WHERE SeqNo = 1

As you can see since 1 doesn't exists in table 'def' nothing is returned as expected. However, if a row isn't returned I want to be able to enter my own row such as

SQL Server 2012 :: Using User Defined Function In View?

Jan 31, 2014

I have a function that accespts a string and a delimeter returns the results in a temp table. I am using the funtion for one of the columns in my view that needs be to split and display the column into different columns. The view takes for ever to run and finally it doesn't split and doesn't display in the column.

ALTER FUNCTION [dbo].[func_Split]
@DelimitedString varchar(8000),


Not sure what I am missing in the above view why it doesn't split the string.

SQL Server 2012 :: User Defined Functions - Include Comments In Parameter Intellisense?

Aug 22, 2014

If you use the LEFT() function for example it provides intellisense support for some of the required parameters.

Is there a way to get that same descriptive text in user defined functions?

Some comment block you define when creating the function?

User-Defined Func Syntax For Table Return

Oct 30, 2006

Hi all!

I'm trying to use a UDF that returns a table, but I'm not sure of the syntax to invoke it. I've found examples in BOL and on-line like the following:

SELECT * FROM dbo.fn_MyTableFunc( 123.09, 'MyID' )

But I need the input parameter to be obtained from another table. For a very simplistic example, I've got 4 tables (and yes, I know that I can get the results I want for this example without using a UDF, but humor me):

CREATE TABLE tUser (UserID int PRIMARY KEY, UserName varchar(50))
CREATE TABLE tAcctGroup (AcctGroupID int PRIMARY KEY, AcctGroupName varchar(50))
CREATE TABLE tAcct (AcctID int PRIMARY KEY, AcctGroupID int, AcctName varchar(50))
CREATE TABLE tMapUserToGroup (UserID int, AcctGroupID int)

INSERT INTO tUser VALUES (111, 'Me')

INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (11, 1, 'New York City')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (12, 1, 'Syracuse')

INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (21, 2, 'Atlanta')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (22, 2, 'Savannah')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (23, 2, 'Augusta')

INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (31, 3, 'Dallas')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (32, 3, 'Houston')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (33, 3, 'El Paso')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (34, 3, 'San Antonio')

INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (41, 4, 'Los Angeles')
INSERT INTO tAcct VALUES (42, 4, 'San Francisco')

INSERT INTO tMapUserToGroup VALUES (111,2)
INSERT INTO tMapUserToGroup VALUES (111,4)

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.ufnGetAcctList(@AcctGroupID int) RETURNS @tAcct table (AcctID int, AcctName varchar(50))
SELECT AcctID, AcctName FROM tAcct WHERE AcctGroupID = @AcctGroupID

I know that I can do:
SELECT * FROM TestDB.dbo.ufnGetAcctList(4)

But I want the equivalent of:
SELECT AcctID, AcctName FROM tAcct
WHERE AcctGroupID IN (SELECT AcctGroupID FROM tMapUserToGroup WHERE UserID = 111)

Which uses tMapUserToGroup to obtain the AcctGroupID to pass into the function. The results would be:
AcctID AcctName
21 Atlanta
22 Savannah
23 Augusta
41 Los Angeles
42 San Francisco

Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your help.

C# User Defined Function: Is There A Way To Access The Name Of The Sql Server?

Apr 26, 2006

This is my problem: I do not know how to get the servername from a C# user defined function . Is this possible?

I am writing a User Defined Function (UDF). Inside of this user defined function I need the name of the databaseserver that it is running on. Does anyone have an idea how I might do this? Is there an enviromental variable that I could access within the C# code I use to write the UDF?

I could always use a parameter to pass in the name of the server, but I would like to have as few parameters as possible.

Thanks in advance,

Is There A User Defined Row Type Ability In MSSQL Server?

Sep 9, 2004

Hi all. We have a mix of informix and mssql server and I want to know if something we do in informix has an analogous feature in MSSQL. We can define a "row type" in informix, like so:

create row type name_1(fname char(20),lname char(20));

The when we create any table that includes a first and last name, we do so using this row type like so:

create table sometable(name name_1, some column,...etc)

This allows us to set a standard for certain common fields and avoids having different developers build the same type of field in more than one way, different lengths, etc.

Is there a similar function in MSSQL server?

EXEC master.dbo.xp_msver ProductVersion can be used to return the server version in a resultset.  I need this to do some conditional coding between varchar and varchar(max) in a UDF, so size of the text I return must be different between the SQL2000 and SQL2005.

I cant call an xp_ that returns a resultset within a UDF can I, so how can I get the SQL version?

Manually Defined Delete Command Doesn't Work

The select and delete statement are :

SQL Server User Defined Function Treating String As Integer

Oct 3, 2006

I have a User Defined Function in my SQL Server 2000 database which takes a string and adds an integer quantity to it.  The function basically takes the string (string because of first character and spaces) and adds an integer to it creating a new number (starting number and ending number concept).If I pass in a string that has a letter for the first character, it works fine.  However, if the first character is an integer it trims out all 0s and whitespace and ruins the necessary formatting.  Note, the formatting is always the same - x xxx xxxx xx.   Any help or ideas would be appreciated.Example:D 499 8900 01     plus a Quantity of 10 returns D 499 89000 11  which is perfect.However,0 076 0000 03     plus a Quantity of 1 returns  764  764     (it should be 0 076 0000 04)------------------------------------CREATE FUNCTION  [dbo].[NEW_End_NR2](  @OldStr as char(20), @Quantity int )RETURNS @NewNR_Tbl TABLE (New_EndNr char(20) primary key)AS  BEGIN DECLARE @NewStr  char(20)  DECLARE @addNr  integerBEGIN  Set @addNr = @Quantity set @NewStr = (select REPLACE(@OldStr,left(@OldStr, 1),'')) set @NewStr = (select REPLACE(@NewStr,' ', ''))  + @addNr set @NewStr = (SELECT left(@OldStr, 1) +    SPACE(1) + left(@NewStr,3) +    SPACE(1) + left(REPLACE(@NewStr, left(@NewStr,3), ''), 4) +   SPACE(1) + left(REPLACE(@NewStr, left(@NewStr,7), ''), 3)) BEGIN  INSERT INTO @NewNR_Tbl (New_EndNr) VALUES(@NewStr) END END    RETURNEND

Feb 7, 2006

User-Defined string Functions MS SQL Server 2005 Transact-SQL SQLCLR (VB. Net, C#.Net, C++. Net)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased to offer, free of charge, the following string functions MS SQL Server 2005 Transact-SQL SQLCLR (VB. Net, C#.Net, C++. Net):

AT(): Returns the beginning numeric position of the nth occurrence of a character expression within another character expression, counting from the leftmost character.
RAT(): Returns the numeric position of the last (rightmost) occurrence of a character string within another character string.
OCCURS(): Returns the number of times a character expression occurs within another character expression (including overlaps).
OCCURS2(): Returns the number of times a character expression occurs within another character expression (excluding overlaps).
PADL(): Returns a string from an expression, padded with spaces or characters to a specified length on the left side.
PADR(): Returns a string from an expression, padded with spaces or characters to a specified length on the right side.
PADC(): Returns a string from an expression, padded with spaces or characters to a specified length on the both sides.
CHRTRAN(): Replaces each character in a character expression that matches a character in a second character expression with the corresponding character in a third character expression.
STRTRAN(): Searches a character expression for occurrences of a second character expression, and then replaces each occurrence with a third character expression. Unlike a built-in function Replace, STRTRAN has three additional parameters.
STRFILTER(): Removes all characters from a string except those specified.
GETWORDCOUNT(): Counts the words in a string.
GETWORDNUM(): Returns a specified word from a string.
GETALLWORDS(): Inserts the words from a string into the table.
PROPER(): Returns from a character expression a string capitalized as appropriate for proper names.

ARABTOROMAN(): Returns the character Roman numeral equivalent of a specified numeric expression (from 1 to 3999).
ROMANTOARAB(): Returns the number equivalent of a specified character Roman numeral expression (from I to MMMCMXCIX).

Stored Procedure That Checks To See Whether A Value Exists And Only Enters Data If It Doesn't

Feb 4, 2008

Hi All,

I Have a nifty little stored procedure that takes data from an ASP form post
and inserts the data into two tables. However what I really need this to do
before the insert is check whether there is already a record that matches
some of the criteria, and if so returns an error "This Username already
exists" and only if there isn't a record that matches the criteria is the
record inserted.

my current stored procedure looks like this -

Code Snippet@siteid int,@companyname nvarchar(50),@address nvarchar(500),@phone nvarchar(50),@fax nvarchar(50),@email nvarchar(225),@url nvarchar(225),@companytype nvarchar(50),@billingcontact nvarchar(50),@name nvarchar(50),@AccountType nvarchar(50),@PASSWORD nvarchar(50),@AccountLive nvarchar(50),@EmployeeLevel nvarchar(50)ASDeclare @NewID INTINSERT INTO dbo.JBClient(JBCLSiteID, JBCLName, JBCLAddress, JBCLPhone, JBCLFax, JBCLEmail, JBCLCompanyType, JBCLURL, JBCLAccountType, JBCLAccountlive, JBCLBillingContact)VALUES (@siteid, @companyname, @address, @phone, @fax, @email, @companytype, @url, @AccountType, @AccountLive, @billingcontact)SELECT @NewID = SCOPE_IDENTITY()INSERT INTO dbo.JBEmployee(JBEClientID, JBESiteID, JBEName, JBELevel, JBEUsername, JBEPassword, JBEAddress, JBEPhone)VALUES (@NewID, @siteid, @name, @EmployeeLevel, @email, @PASSWORD, @address, @phone)
The values that i need to check against are -


in the table dbo.JBEmployee against columns JBESiteID & JBEUsername

What i would really like to do if a record exists is return the user to an
ASP page, which contains all of the variables previously enterred -,

@siteid int,
@companyname nvarchar(50),
@address nvarchar(500),
@phone nvarchar(50),
@fax nvarchar(50),
@email nvarchar(225),
@url nvarchar(225),
@companytype nvarchar(50),
@billingcontact nvarchar(50),
@name nvarchar(50),
@AccountType nvarchar(50),
@PASSWORD nvarchar(50),
@AccountLive nvarchar(50),
@EmployeeLevel nvarchar(50)

together with a message that says "This Username already exists"

Does anyone have any idea how to do this???

Many thanks

Using User Defined Data Type (UDT) In A Sql Server 2005 Database + Window Application.

Feb 18, 2006


I am using VS2005 C# + sql server 2005 Express edition.

I need to using a database that uses my own defined data types to define its tables columns.

I already have designed a Database projact and create the new UDT as follows:

Create a new Database project in the Visual C# language nodes.

Add a reference to the SQL Server 2005 database that will contain the UDT.

Add a User-Defined Type class.

Write code to implement the UDT.

Select Deploy from the Build menu.

Now I need to ask some quistions:

1- When I try to add a new query to a table that contains my new data type in its columns,if I try to exexute the query the next message appears:

'Execution of user code in the .Net framework is disabled. Enable "clr enabled" configuration option'.

How can I doing that??

2- I need to use that database - which has the new data type - in a traditional ' Visual C# Windows Application' instead of 'Database', but:

when I try to add a new Data Source that contains the tables that have the new data types in its definitions, the next message appears:


User-defined types(UDTs)are not supported in the Dataset Designer.'

So, how can I resolve that problem??

please help me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Return Value For NOT EXISTS

Oct 24, 2006


I frequently use the "If NOT EXISTS (Select ...) Insert ..." statement and would like to display a message to the user after the execution of the statement to say whether the Insert was or wasn't executed. Is there a way to get SQL to return a value that will tell me if the Insert was carried out or not? If not, perhaps you know of some other efficient way of handling this situation.
