Multiple Values For Single Column In Where Clause

Jun 25, 2004

how does one specify multiple values for a single column in a where clause?


SELECT fname, lname
FROM tblContacts
WHERE (state = 'MI','CA','AZ','TN','NJ')

if my memory serves me there is an IN() value list operator but I can't remember the syntax :confused:

Multiple Columns With Different Values OR Single Column With Multiple Criteria?

Aug 22, 2007


I have multiple columns in a Single Table and i want to search values in different columns. My table structure is

col1 (identity PK)
col2 (varchar(max))
col3 (varchar(max))

I have created a single FULLTEXT on col2 & col3.
suppose i want to search col2='engine' and col3='toyota' i write query as








Every thing works well if database is small. But now i have 20 million records in my database. Taking an exmaple there are 5million record with col2='engine' and only 1 record with col3='toyota', it take substantial time to find 1 record.

I was thinking this i can address this issue if i merge both columns in a Single column, but i cannot figure out what format i save it in single column that i can use query to extract correct information.
for e.g.;
i was thinking to concatinate both fields like
col4= ABengineBA + ABBToyotaBBA
and in search i use




Result = 1 row

But it don't work in following scenario
col4= ABengineBA + ABBCorola ToyotaBBA






Result=0 Row
Any idea how i can write second query to get result?

Multiple Rows Into A Single Row And Combining Column Values?

Apr 6, 2014

I joined these two tables and it pulled up the proper amount of records. If you check out the image you will see what the results are for this query.

Now all I need for this part would be to roll these up where I have one row per ProgramID and all the AttributeNames' together in a AttributeNames column for each id.

EXAMPLE: All in one row.

ProgramID | AttributeNames
887 | Studydesign, Control Groups, Primary Outcomes.

I have attached an image of the SQL VIEW that I need to modified so it does this.


SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT dbo.tblProgramAttributes.ProgramID, dbo.tblProgramAttributes.AttributeID AS PAattributeID, dbo.tblAttributes.AttributeID,
FROM dbo.tblProgramAttributes INNER JOIN
dbo.tblAttributes ON dbo.tblProgramAttributes.AttributeID = dbo.tblAttributes.AttributeID
WHERE (dbo.tblProgramAttributes.AttributeID NOT LIKE '%ProgramType%')
ORDER BY dbo.tblProgramAttributes.ProgramID DESC

Store Multiple Values In A Single Value

Nov 6, 2005

was hoping someone couild provide some insight into a problem I'm trying to solve.

I have a table called SEARCHCRITERIA. It consists of a USERID column and a CRITERIA column. Users will be able to search for other users based on a set of criteria. There are 5 total criteria a user can choose. They can choose as few as none or all five. I'd like to store the criteria chosen as a single number in the SEARCHCRITERIA table. Then use a function to parse out the criteria. For example:

1 AGE 2
2 SEX 4

A user performs a search based on AGE, SEX, and LOCALE. I would then store the value 22 (the sum of 2, 4, and 16) in the SEARCH table. I would then need a function to pull out the three individual values.

Has anyone done anything like this before?

If so, any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Choosing Between Two Column Values To Return As Single Column Value

I'm working on a social network where I store my friend GUIDs in a table with the following structure:user1_guid       user2_guidI am trying to write a query to return a single list of all a users' friends in a single column.  Depending on who initiates the friendship, a users' guid value can be in either of the two columns.  Here is the crazy sql I have come up with to give what I want, but I'm sure there's a better way...  Any ideas?SELECT DISTINCT UserIdFROM espace_ProfilePropertyWHERE (UserId IN

How To Pass Multiple Values To An IN Clause Through Stored Procedure

Jun 11, 2004

I created a stored procedure like the following in the hope that I can pass mulitple company_id to the select statement:

CREATE PROC sp_test @in_company_code nvarchar(1024)

select company_code, name, description
from member_company
where company_code in (@in_company_code)

However, I tried the following :

exec sp_test 'abc', 'rrd', 'bbc'

Procedure or function sp_test has too many arguments specified.

and SQLServer doesn't like it.

Did I specify this stored procedure correct?
If so, how can I can pass multiple values to the stored procedure then to the sql statement?
If not, is it possible to specify a stored procedure like this?

Analysis :: Doing Intersect When Filtering Multiple Values On Single Dimension

May 29, 2015

Link : [URL] .....

This provides a good example for my situation. In this example, you will see a Movie dimension with four attributes; Genre, Language, Movie, and Theme. I have a similar setup except mine is Top Level Hierarchy>Categories>Values which are all under the one hierarchy.

My Question: I have the dimension setup as a multi-value parameter in one of my reports. When I filter on a value in Genre and in Language, it provides all values from that genre and all values from that language. I really only want the values that include both.

Genre - Western: Movie1, Movie2, Movie3
Language - English: Movie2, Movie4, Movie5

If I filter on Western and English, I get Movie1-5 when all I really want is Movie2 only. Is there any way to have this do an Intersect within the same dimension or do I have to build each one out into its own dimension?

Show Multiple Values In Single Textbox Comma Separated

Jan 2, 2008

I have a field called "Owners", and it's a child to an "Activities" table.

An Activity can have on or more owners, and what I'd like to do is some how comma separate the values that come back if there are more than one owners.

I've tried a subreport, but because the row is colored and if another field, title, expands to a second row (b/c of the length) and the subreport has just one name, then the sub-report has some different color underneath due to it being smaller in height.

I'm kinda stuck on how to do this.

The Best Method Of Storing Multiple Values For A Single User Criteria In The Database ?

Mar 31, 2008

Let's say you had a User table and one of the fields was called Deceased.  It's a simple closed-ended question, so a bit value could be used to satisfy the field, if the person is dead or alive.  Let's say another field is called EyeColor.  A person can have only one eye color and thus one answer should be stored in this value, so this is easy as well.
Now, let's say I want to store all the languages that a specific user can speak.  This isn't as easy as the previous examples since it's not a yes or no or a single-value answer.  I haven't had much experience with working with databases so I've come up with two possible ways with my crude knowledge hehe.
In terms of inputting the multi-answer values, I suppose I could use a multiple-selection listbox, cascading dropdowns, etc.  Now, here are the 2 solutions that came to mind.....
1) Make a field called LanguagesSpoken in the User table.  When I process the selections the user makes on the languages he knows, I can then insert into the LanguagesSpoken field a string "English, Spanish, Czech" or IDs corresponding to the languages like "1, 5, 12" (these IDs would be referenced from a separate table I guess).  I would use commas so that later on, when I need to display a user's profile and show the user's languages, I can retrieve that long string from the LanguagesSpoken field, and parse the languages with the commas I've used.  Using commas would just be a convention I use so I would know how to parse (I could have used "." or "|" or anything else I guess) the data.
2) Forget about the LanguagesSpoken field in the User table altogether, and just make a LanguagesSpoken table.  A simple implementation would have 3 fields (primary key, userId, languageId).  A row would associate a user with a language.  So I would issue a query like "SELECT * FROM LanguagesSpoken WHERE userId=5" (where userId=5 is some user).  Using this method would free me from having to store a string with delimited values into the User table and then to parse data when I need them.  However, I'm not sure how efficient this method would be if the LanguagesSpoken table grows really large since the userIds would NOT be contiguous, the search might take a long time.  I guess I would index the userId field in the LanguagesSpoken table for quicker access?
OR, I may be going about this the wrong way and I'm way out on left field with these 2 solutions.  Is there a better way other than those 2 methods?
I haven't work extensively with databases and I'm just familiar with the basics.  I'm just trying to find out the best-practice implementation for this type of situation.  I'm sure in the real world, situations like this is very common and I wonder how the professionals code this.
Thanks in advance.

Removing Duplicate Delimited Values From A Single Column?

Jun 18, 2014

I have a stored procedure that returns a single row based on a parameter of employee ID. This particular procedure uses a CTE to traverse our org structure. One of the columns is returning a delimited string of Windows login values and due to the business rules, it can contain duplicate values. I need to have that column contain only unique values - no dupes.

For example, this one column could contain something like this:

domainuser1;domainuser2;domainuser2;domainuser 3;

The need is to convert to this:

Group By And Count(*) A Single Column Returing Two Counted Values

Feb 26, 2008

I am trying to count a column field in a single table and return two count values as one record set using group by.

field1 = group by (department) nvarachar
field2 = count (closed) datetime

I have tried using derived tables with no luck getting the desired result.

field2 is a datetime field as indicated I want a count for two conditions

1. WHERE field2 is null
2. WHERE field2 is not null

End Results would like this
Department | OpenItems | ClosedItems
Department1 | 32 | 24
Departmnet2 | 87 | 46
Department3 | 42 | 76


I got it *almost* working with derived tables, but the group by function was not putting the department as one single row. I was getting multiple rows for departments.

I realize this is probably a simple answer and I am making this a lot harder than it actually is....

Any suggestions?
