Using Functions In Openquery

Jul 20, 2001

I'm trying to use the date() function in an openquery statement in query analyzer and I keep getting an illegal symbol ")" error. The statement is :

select *
from openquery([Big Blue], 'select cde_date, cde_item from acch1 where cde_date < date()')

The objective is to find records where cde_date is prior to today. The syntax works fine if I execute it on the mainframe in QMF and the ODBC connection works fine if I hard code the value. What I need is the ability to use the function so I can run the query on subsequent days without having to edit it.

Any suggestions??

SQL Server 2005: CLR Functions Vs SQL Functions

May 26, 2006

I was playing around with the new SQL 2005 CLR functionality andremembered this discussion that I had with Erland Sommarskog concerningperformance of scalar UDFs some time ago (See "Calling sp_oa* infunction" in this newsgroup). In that discussion, Erland made thefollowing comment about UDFs in SQL 2005:[color=blue][color=green]>>The good news is that in SQL 2005, Microsoft has addressed several of[/color][/color]these issues, and the cost of a UDF is not as severe there. In fact fora complex expression, a UDF in written a CLR language may be fasterthanthe corresponding expression using built-in T-SQL functions.<<I thought the I would put this to the test using some of the same SQLas before, but adding a simple scalar CLR UDF into the mix. The testinvolved querying a simple table with about 300,000 rows. Thescenarios are as follows:(A) Use a simple CASE function to calculate a column(B) Use a simple CASE function to calculate a column and as a criterionin the WHERE clause(C) Use a scalar UDF to calculate a column(D) Use a scalar UDF to calculate a column and as a criterion in theWHERE clause(E) Use a scalar CLR UDF to calculate a column(F) Use a scalar CLR UDF to calculate a column and as a criterion inthe WHERE clauseA sample of the results is as follows (time in milliseconds):(295310 row(s) affected)A: 1563(150003 row(s) affected)B: 906(295310 row(s) affected)C: 2703(150003 row(s) affected)D: 2533(295310 row(s) affected)E: 2060(150003 row(s) affected)F: 2190The scalar CLR UDF function was significantly faster than the classicscalar UDF, even for this very simple function. Perhaps a more complexfunction would have shown even a greater difference. Based on this, Imust conclude that Erland was right. Of course, it's still faster tostick with basic built-in functions like CASE.In another test, I decided to run some queries to compare built-inaggregates vs. a couple of simple CLR aggregates as follows:(G) Calculate averages by group using the built-in AVG aggregate(H) Calculate averages by group using a CLR aggregate that similatesthe built-in AVG aggregate(I) Calculate a "trimmed" average by group (average excluding highestand lowest values) using built-in aggregates(J) Calculate a "trimmed" average by group using a CLR aggregatespecially designed for this purposeA sample of the results is as follows (time in milliseconds):(59 row(s) affected)G: 313(59 row(s) affected)H: 890(59 row(s) affected)I: 216(59 row(s) affected)J: 846It seems that the CLR aggregates came with a significant performancepenalty over the built-in aggregates. Perhaps they would pay off if Iwere attempting a very complex type of aggregation. However, at thispoint I'm going to shy away from using these unless I can't find a wayto do the calculation with standard SQL.In a way, I'm happy that basic SQL still seems to be the fastest way toget things done.

OpenQuery Using A Variable

Jan 29, 2004


Here's what I did:

1) I declared a new VARCHAR(2000) variable called CQUERY like this:
2) I put a string query in the variable:

Now, when I try to execute the OpenQuery method using that variable, it fails.

Here's the call:

I get the following error:
Server: Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 13
Line 13: Incorrect syntax near '@CQUERY'.

Don't tell me I can't use a variable instead of a static query? What am I doing wrong?

OPENQUERY &&amp; Permissions

Oct 23, 2007

I have a dataming stored procedure. it works fine on it own, thanks to help from this forum. However, when i try to run aggregate funtions on the table it returns using sql server I get:

"The OLE DB provider "MSOLAP" for linked server "DM" indicates that either the object has no columns or the current user does not have permissions on that object."

This works:

CALL Assemby.Namespace.MyFunction('[model]', 'db','table',0)

And this works:

SELECT SUM([prediction]) as value, count([prediction]) as count FROM OPENQUERY(DM,'
--DMX query that sproc produces and executes

but this:
SELECT SUM([prediction]) as value, count([prediction]) as count FROM OPENQUERY(DM,'
CALL Assemby.Namespace.MyFunction(''[model]'', ''db'',''table'',0)

gives this:

The OLE DB provider "MSOLAP" for linked server "DM" indicates that either the object has no columns or the current user does not have permissions on that object.

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Issues With OpenQuery

May 19, 2008

We are running the following query against a MYSQL database that runs a third party software.

SELECT Email, CONVERT(INT, count) AS clicks, date AS Last_Clicked_Date
FROM OPENQUERY(MYSQL, 'SELECT Email, SUM(count) count, MAX(date) date FROM tracking WHERE action="click" GROUP BY Email')

We are upgrading that software to the latest version. This requires a migration from MYSQL to PostGres.
There are some schema changes involved

Current MYSQL field name New PostGres field name
email email_address
date tracking_date
action action_name

I've modified the query to use the new fields

SELECT Email_address, CONVERT(INT, count) AS clicks, date AS Last_Clicked_Date
FROM OPENQUERY(MYSQL, 'SELECT Email_address, SUM(count) count, MAX(tracking_date) date FROM tracking WHERE action_name="click" GROUP BY Email_address')

and I get the following error message -

Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

The OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "test" reported an error. The provider reported an unexpected catastrophic failure.

Msg 7350, Level 16, State 2, Line 1

Cannot get the column information from OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "test".

When I run this query it works -

select email_address, tracking_date

from openquery(test, 'select * from tracking')

'Subquery Returned More Than 1 Value' In OpenQuery

Nov 14, 2006

I'm getting the message

"Subquery returned more than 1 value." etc when running a query on a
linked server through OpenQuery. This returns around 6 values
(some of them are fairly long varchar's).
When running another query the same way which returns 2 values,
it works fine.

The problem query also works fine when run locally. It's calling a User-Defined Functions which returns a table, but the second query which works fine also does this.

Where can this subquery be ? Inside the UDF (shouldn't matter, should it?) ?

Using Openquery Without Returning Resultset

Jul 20, 2005

Hello,Quick, and possibly strange, question.I am doing some work testing the running time of some dynamic SQLstatements on a remote machine. What I would like to do is executethe SQL on the remote machine, without returning the result set to thecalling machine (this would skew the results, as my connection to theremote machine is rather slow).I believe SET ROWCOUNT 0 would work in principle, but thedocumentation says:"Causes Microsoft® SQL Server™ to stop processing the query after thespecified number of rows are returned."I don't want processing to stop until all the records have beenidentified. I also don't know if "SET ROWCOUNT" works with openquery(althought a non-openquery solution would also be acceptable).The code will be running in a stored procedure, if that matters.Any input would be much appreciated.Phil

Need Help With OPENQUERY And Insert Statement

Nov 7, 2006

I'm trying to Insert data from a linked server connection into one of my tables in the sql database. it seems to be giving me an error saying column cant be found. It only does this when I put the Where clause in the statement. I dont have the server in front of me but this is how my statement looks.

Insert into WorkList (DSK)
Select *
From OPENQUERY (SCH, 'Select Desk_ID from public.ACCOUNT Where Desk_ID = LA1')

The error that I get is the LA1 column cant be found? any help thanks
