T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Comparing Column Values In Same Table

Jun 16, 2014

How to resolve the below task

create table #temp ( idx int identity(1,1), col1 int, col2 int )

Here i want a flag success or fail on basis of below conditions.

I need to take all the col1 values and then i need to compare to each other.

if any difference found, i need to check difference more than 30, then it should raise the flag as "Failure".

if all the col1 values are ok , then we need to check Col2 values same as above.

--case 1

insert into #temp(col1,col2)
select 16522,18522
union all
select 16522,18522
union all
select 16582,18522

--select * from #temp

--truncate table #temp

Because of difference in col1 values . the value of flag should be fail.

--case 2

insert into #temp(col1,col2)
select 16522,18522
union all
select 16522,18522
union all
select 16522,17522

Here also the col1 is ok but col2 values have difference so it should be Fail.

Otherwise it should be success.

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Stored Procedure To Truncate And Insert Values In Table 1 And Update And Insert Values In Table 2

Apr 30, 2015

table2 is intially populated (basically this will serve as historical table for view); temptable and table2 will are similar except that table2 has two extra columns which are insertdt and updatedt

1. get data from an existing view and insert in temptable
2. truncate/delete contents of table1
3. insert data in table1 by comparing temptable vs table2 (values that exists in temptable but not in table2 will be inserted)
4. insert data in table2 which are not yet present (comparing ID in t2 and temptable)
5. UPDATE table2 whose field/column VALUE is not equal with temptable. (meaning UNMATCHED VALUE)

* for #5 if a value from table2 (historical table) has changed compared to temptable (new result of view) this must be updated as well as the updateddt field value.

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Query To Display Different Values From Same Column In Same Table?

Sep 18, 2015

I have a table with a column AttributeNumber and a column AttributeValue. The data is like this:

OrderNo. AttributeNumber AttributeValue
1.-Order_1 2001 A
2.-Order_1 2002 B
3.-Order_1 2003 C
4.-Order_2 2001 A
5.-Order_2 2002 B
6.-Order_2 2003 C

So the logic is as follows:

I need to display in my query the values are coming from Order_1, means AttributreValues coming from AttibuteNumbers: 2001,2002,2003...and Order_2 the same thing.

Not sure how to create my Select here since the values are in the same table

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: How To Vary Column Names In Cross Apply Based On Different Columns In Each Table

Feb 26, 2015

I am using CROSS APPLY instead of UNPIVOT to unpivot > one column. I am wondering if I can dynamically replace column names based on different tables? The example code that I have working is based on the "Allergy" table. I have thirty more specialty tables to go. I'll show the working code first, then an example of another table's columns to show differences:

select [uplift specialty], [member po],[practice unit name], [final nomination status]
,[final uplift status], [final rank], [final uplift percentage]
,practiceID=row_number() over (partition by [practice unit name] order by Metricname)
,metricname,Metricvalue, metricpercentilerank


Rheumatology Table:The columns that vary start with "GDR" and [GDR Percentile Rank] so I'm just showing those:

GDR (nvarchar(255), null)
GDR Percentile Rank (nvarchar(255), null)
GDR PGS (nvarchar(255), null)
GDR Rank Number (nvarchar(255), null)
PMPM (nvarchar(255), null)

[Code] ....

These are imported from an Excel Workbook so that's why all the columns with spaces for now.

For an example.

Now the records with rowid 2 and 3 should be updated with H1 as Header which is present in the Rowid 1.

Update XML Column In Table

Jan 2, 2014

I am trying to remove a user from Reporting Services via code. I have found that the way to do this is to remove their details from an XML field in the table SecData

The name of the column is xml_description

An example value of the column is below:

<Name>Content Manager</Name>


I would like to remove the bolded part in the column when I put in the user's name.

So the code would start with:

Declare @username varchar (20)
Set @ username = 'EMEAMJohnson'

Followed by the logic to remove the bolded part of the column.

The column is called xml_description and the name of the table is SecData.

Update Column From Another Table

Apr 26, 2007

Hello all, was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for this.

I have a db with a column classifications, and in that column are 'Accountants - (1234)' 'Book-keepers - (18) etc etc. Now what I want to do is remove the - (xxxx) section and obviously the white space, so I am just left with 'Accountants' 'Book-keepers' etc.

1. Is there an easy way to do this?

Ok so my thoughts were create a another table and put the ammended classifications in that to update the first table. Your probably asking why not just do it on the first table...Answer. There are over 150,000 records to change.

So I now have my first table with column classification and my second table with the correct classification ammendments.

I can sit down and manually type

UPDATE table1
SET classifications = 'Accountants'
Where classifications = 'Accounts - (xxxx)'

until i have completed the entire list in table 2 but I was hoping you good people would know a way to work through the list so it would automatically update each classification correctly.

The problem I have here is I dont know how to work through table 2 and match it to something in table 1 and update it.

Any help is greatfully appreciated

Update A Column / Other Table

Apr 11, 2008


I am quite new in SSIS and I have a question. I don't know what is the best way to get it work...

So simply I have in my SQL Server database 2 tables :

First table "SER" fields

where I have only the field SER_ID filled like
1234 NULL
1235 NULL
1236 NULL

Second table "SRE" fields
and the content would be for example
1 1234 2345
2 1234 2346
3 1236 2347

The 2 tables are related by the fields : SER_ID = SRE_SER_ID

So I would like to have the following result in my table "SER":
1234 True
1235 NULL
1236 True

"True" because one or more entry is present in table "SRE" for each SER_ID (= SRE_SER_ID)

Hope my example is clear....
Thanks for your help

How To Update A Column With The Sum Of Two Columns In A Table

May 9, 2008

I have a simple question that is more about performance on my code for updating a column with the sum of two columns:


Table = dbo.adding

c1 c2 c3Sum
1 2
3 5
4 6

Now if I just simple write

Update dbo.adding
set c3SUM = c1 + c2

This works, but there is a null in c1 or c2 then I know I can write this:

if exists (select * from dbo.adding where c1 is NULL)

Update dbo.adding

set c1 = '0', c3SUM = '0' + c2 where c1 is NULL

if exists (select * from dbo.adding where c2 is NULL)

Update dbo.adding

set c2 = '0', equals = c1 + '0' where c2 is NULL

Update dbo.adding

set c3SUM = c1 + c2

This works as well, but I am not sure how perficient it is being that from my understanding the code will evaluate the table three times and update it based on the criteria. If the table consists of 100,000 rows then this might not be a good solution

Is there a more proficient way to do this... I personally try to as little coding as possible to help increase performance. I know I can make this very complex and declare variables and put everything in a loop, but I personally think that would be less profient..
