SQL Server 2012 :: Where Clause On Multiple Columns?

May 16, 2014

Right now I have to do something like this and it is time consuming every time I have to query a specific table...

SELECT lots_of_columns
FROM table
WHERE (column5 = '1' OR column6 = '1' OR column7 = '1' OR column8 = '1' OR column9 = '1' OR column10 = '1' OR column11 = '1' OR column12 = '1')
AND other_query_critiera_here

Typing out the OR statement gets long, time consuming and prone to errors because that first where line with all the ORs can sometimes have 20+ ORs in it. As some insight, the columns are text columns, sometimes they have data, sometimes they are NULL. Sometimes they have the same data (i.e., column5 and column6 and column12 could both have '1' as values).

SQL Server 2012 :: Concatenate Multiple Rows In Multiple Columns

Aug 5, 2014

I concatenate multiple rows from one table in multiple columns like this:

--Create Table
CREATE TABLE [Person].[Person_1](
[BusinessEntityID] [int] NOT NULL,
[PersonType] [nchar](2) NOT NULL,
[FirstName] [varchar](100) NOT NULL,

[Code] ....

This works very well, but I want to concatenate more rows with different [PersonType]-Values in different columns and I don't like the overhead, of using the same table in every subquery ([Person_1]). Is there a more elegant way to do this, without using a temp table or something else?

SQL Server 2012 :: Query With Multiple Columns - How To Get Next Value One After Another

Aug 5, 2015

I want to know if it is possible to do the following;

I have patients that may have been transferred to different locations(see below)

location_name enter_time
4D04 2/9/15 2:35
4D14 2/9/15 8:44
RECOVERY 3 2/9/15 9:08
4D13 2/9/15 17:36
4D14 2/10/15 2:02

i know i can do a min max to get my first and last values. I want to label the columns something like

1st location, 2nd location, 3rd location, 4th location, discharge location.

there could be 1 location or 20.

is there a way to do this?

i can do a temporary table and then an update query to add the values to those columns.

just not sure how to get the next value and then the next etc.

SQL Server 2012 :: Querying A Supersession Two Column Table With Multiple Supersessions In Both Columns

Jan 29, 2014

I'm fairly new to SQL and am just setting up a Windows 8 app using an Azure SQL server. The issue I have is looking up a part number supersession and getting the latest number. One part number can have multiple supersessions (ie RTC5756 > STC8572 > STC3765 > STC9150 > STC9191 > SFP500160 ).The data I am supplied monthly has both the superseeded items and the supersession information in both columns and is not easy to decipher - for example:

Supersessions Table

RTC5756 | STC9191
SFP500160 | STC9191
STC9191 | STC2951
STC3765 | STC9191
STC8572 | STC9191
STC9150 | STC9191


The newest part number is kept in a separate table - called "source" - which in this instance is SFP500160. I need access to the latest part number but also to the part's previous numbers, due to the fact that some people may still be stocking them as an old part number and for them to search by. Is there an easy and efficient way of doing both a lookup for the supersessions and a join on the two tables to minimize the queries on the database?

SQL 2012 :: Include Columns In Index That Are In Where Clause / Select List And Join

Usually it is better to include the columns in the index that are in where clause, select list and join.I am thinking that the columns in the selected list is better to keep as index columns and the columns that are in the where clause is better to keep in key columns.Where do we use join column is it better to create as main key column or included column.

SQL 2012 :: Split Data From Two Columns In One Table Into Multiple Columns Of Result Table

Jul 22, 2015

So I have been trying to get mySQL query to work for a large database that I have. I have (lets say) two tables Table_One and Table_Two. Table_One has three columns: Type, Animal and TestID and Table_Two has 2 columns Test_Name and Test_ID. Example with values is below:

Type Animal TestID
Mammal Goat 1
Fish Cod 1
Bird Chicken 1
Reptile Snake 1
Bird Crow 2
Mammal Cow 2
Bird Ostrich 3

Test_name TestID
Test_1 1
Test_1 1
Test_1 1
Test_1 1
Test_2 2
Test_2 2
Test_3 3

In Table_One all types come under one column and the values of all Types (Mammal, Fish, Bird, Reptile) come under another column (Animals). Table_One and Two can be linked by Test_ID

I am trying to create a table such as shown below:

Test_Name Bird Reptile Mammal Fish
Test_1 Chicken Snake Goat Cod
Test_2 Crow Cow
Test_3 Ostrich

This should be my final table. The approach I am currently using is to make multiple instances of Table_One and using joins to form this final table. So the column Bird, Reptile, Mammal and Fish all come from a different copy of Table_one.

For e.g

Test_Name AS 'Test_Name',
Table_Bird.Animal AS 'Birds',
Table_Mammal.Animal AS 'Mammal',
Table_Reptile.Animal AS 'Reptile,
Table_Fish.Animal AS 'Fish'
From Table_One

[Code] .....

The problem with this query is it only works when all entries for Birds, Mammals, Reptiles and Fish have some value. If one field is empty as for Test_Two or Test_Three, it doesn't return that record. I used Or instead of And in the WHERE clause but that didn't work as well.

SQL 2012 :: Calculated Columns Conditional On Calculated Columns Multiple Tables

Apr 20, 2014

I have 4 tables involved here. The priority table is TABLE1:

000001235 04/14/2014 335 A0A00 605
000001234 04/14/2014 243 A0A01 243
000001236 04/14/2014 425 A0A02 500

TRANAMT being the amount paid & TOTBAL being the balance due per the NAMEID & RMPROPID specified.The other table includes a breakdown of the total balance, in a manner of speaking, by charge code (thru a SUM(OPENAMT) query of DISTINCT CHGCODE

000001234 04/01/2014 400 A0A01 ARC 0
000001234 04/05/2014 -142 A0A01 ARC 228
000001234 04/10/2014 15 A0A01 ALT 15


Also with a remaining balance (per CHGCODE) column. Any alternative solution that would effectively split the TABLE1.TRANAMT up into the respective TABLE2.CHGCODE balances? Either way, I can't figure out how to word the queries.

SQL 2012 :: Creating Index On Multiple Columns Separately

Jul 28, 2015

I used following query to identify missing indexes:

SELECT mid.statement , mid.included_columns, mid.equality_columns, mid.inequality_columns,
migs.avg_total_user_cost * (migs.avg_user_impact / 100.0) * (migs.user_seeks + migs.user_scans) AS improvement_measure,
'CREATE INDEX [NCIX_' + CONVERT (varchar, mig.index_group_handle) + '_' + CONVERT (varchar, mid.index_handle)
+ '_' + LEFT (PARSENAME(mid.statement, 1), 32) + ']'
+ ' ON ' + mid.statement

[Code] ....

I think I need to only create few if an index is covering all columns then I do not need to create more indexes for separate columns or should I create separate index as suggested?


CREATE INDEX [NCIX_20187_20186_TL_SRV_Stationary_Stock_Transact] ON [TL_SRV_Stationary_Stock_Transaction] ([SerialNo],[StationaryStatus]) GO
CREATE INDEX [NCIX_20189_20188_TL_SRV_Stationary_Stock_Transact] ON [TL_SRV_Stationary_Stock_Transaction] ([StationaryStatus]) INCLUDE ([SerialNo]) GO

[Code] ....

Should I create all indexes above or use minimum number of indexes which covers all columns as mentioned in above create index statements?

SQL Server 2012 :: Using Parameterized Query With Like In Where Clause

Feb 4, 2014

From MS Dynamics NAV 2013 I get a lot of querries that have a where clause like this:

where [Field1] like @p1 and [Field1] < @p2.
Field1 is the only primary key field and clustered index. The query also has a TOP 50 clause.
@p1 is always a "Starts-With"-value (something like N'abc%').

The query plan uses a clustered index seek but the number of reads look more like a clustered index scan.

Depending on the table size I see 1M or more reads for these querries.

If I rebuild the query in SSMS, but replace the paramerters with actual values I only see a few reads.

I was able to reproduce the issue with a temp table. See code below.

Is there a way to make SQL Server use another strategy when using the parameterized query?

SQL Server Version is 11.0.3401.
if object_id('tempdb..#tbl') is not null
drop table #tbl;
create table #tbl
[No] nvarchar(20)
,[Description1] nvarchar(250)

SQL Server 2012 :: Combine Functionality Of IN And LIKE In WHERE Clause

May 8, 2015

I would like to be able to combine the functionality of IN and LIKE in a WHERE clause. Although the simple AdventureWorks2012 example below illustrates the concept with 3 search criteria, the real-world example I need to apply the concept to has a couple dozen. This returns 50 rows, but requires multiple OR ... LIKE functions:

FROM Sales.Store c
WHERE c.Name LIKE '% sports %'
OR c.Name LIKE '% exercise %'
OR c.Name LIKE '%toy%'

What I would like to do is something like this, which doesn't work:

FROM Sales.Store c
WHERE c.Name IN(LIKE '% sports %', LIKE '% exercise %', LIKE '%toy%')

I could load up a cursor and loop through it, but the syntax is more cumbersome than the multiple LIKE statements, not to mention most SQL programmers are horrified at the mention of the abominable word 'cursor' for performance reasons.

SQL Server 2012 :: Using WHERE Clause For Report Generation

Sep 11, 2015

Because of the way in which a specific piece of code is written, I'm bound into using a WHERE clause for a report generation.Each Inspection generates a unique Inspection Number. Any re-inspection created from that inspection is assigned that Inspection Number and appended with ".A", ".B", ".C" and so on.

The problem is this: Each row's Primary Key is the "InspectionId" in "dbo.v_InspectionDetailsReports". I need to return not only the data related to that particular InspectionId, but also the data related to any previous related inspection. For example, if I have a main number of CCS-2012 and three re-inspections, CCS-2012.A, CCS-2012.B and CCS-2012.C, and I report on CCS-2012.B, I need all the data for CCS-2012, CCS-2012.A and CCS-2012.B but NOT CCS-2012.C.

I would prefer to not have to do everything in a WHERE statement, but my hands are a bit tied.

The "SELECT * FROM dbo.v_InspectionDetailsReports WHERE . . ." is already hardcoded (don't ask).
FROM dbo.v_InspectionDetailsReports
WHERE ( RefOnly = 0

SQL Server 2012 :: How To Modify ORDER BY Clause At Runtime Using Parameter

Jun 4, 2015

the code below works (this is only a quick dumbed down version of the actual code, it might not work 100% for all cases). Is it at all possible to exploit the functions that were added to SSQL since v. 2005 to simplify this code ?

In SSRS, a parameter allows the user to create a list of invoices (from CRM) to be ordered in any of the following ways the user prefers:

'Document Date (most recent date first)'
'Document Number (highest number first)'
'Document Date (most recent first) and Number'
'Document Number (lowest number first)'

The invoices have a (supposedly) sequential identity-generated number. However Accounting may want to set a different date than the creation date on some invoices. So there is no way the invoice numbers will be in the same sequence as the invoice dates.

So I just created the "sorting fields" - they appear as junk in the output dataset (just do not drop them in the SSRS tablix - they have to be part of the SELECT statement to be usable in the ORDER BY clause.

The code is:

DECLARE @ls_OrderBy varchar(80)
--'Document Number (highest number first)'
--'Customer and Document Date (most recent date first)'
--'Customer and Document Number (highest number first)'
--'Document Date (most recent first) and Number'
