I have created a single FULLTEXT on col2 & col3. suppose i want to search col2='engine' and col3='toyota' i write query as
TBL INNER JOIN
CONTAINSTABLE(TBL,col2,'engine') TBL1 ON
TBL.col1=TBL1.[key] INNER JOIN
CONTAINSTABLE(TBL,col3,'toyota') TBL2 ON
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 SELECT
TBL INNER JOIN
CONTAINSTABLE(TBL,col4,' "ABengineBA" AND "ABBToyotaBBA"') TBL1 ON
TBL.col1=TBL1.[key] Result = 1 row
But it don't work in following scenario col4= ABengineBA + ABBCorola ToyotaBBA
TBL INNER JOIN
CONTAINSTABLE(TBL,col4,' "ABengineBA" AND "ABB*ToyotaBBA"') TBL1 ON
Result=0 Row Any idea how i can write second query to get result?
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, dbo.tblAttributes.AttributeName 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
hi iam totally new to databases , as a project i have to design a database of users...they have to register first like any site..so i used stored procs and made entries to database using insert command...its working for now..now every user will search and add other users in the database..so every user will have a contact list...i have no idea how to implement this...so far i created a table 'UserAccount' with column names as UserName as varchar(50)Password as varchar(50)EmailID as varchar(100)DateOfJoining as datetimeUserID as int ---> this is unique for user..i enabled automatic increment..and this is primary key..so now every user must have a list of other userid's.. as contact list..Any help any ideas will be great since i have no clue how to put multiple values for each row..i didnt even know how to search for this problems solution..iam sorry if this posted somewhere else..THANK YOU !if it helps..iam using sql server express edition..and iam accessing using asp.net/C#
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:
CRITERIAID CRITERIA CRITERIAVALUE 1 AGE 2 2 SEX 4 3 GRADE 8 4 LOCALE 16 5 REGION 32
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.
Taking the Northwind database as an example,I have an order table: 'Orders'a order details table: 'Order Details'and a products table: 'Products'For reasons best ignored, I want to produce a query which has columns:Orders.OrderID, Productswhich has results like:10248, 'Queso Cabrales, Singaporean Hokkien Fried Mee, Mozzarella diGiovanni'10249, 'Tofu, Manjimup Dried Apples'________so for those who don't really know what I'm on about and haven't gotaccess to northwind, I want the second cell to contain the returnedcolumn of a second query (but in text format)could anyone suggest a way this could be done? am I entering the landof cursors?Many thanks,Neil
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 (SELECT CAST(REPLACE(CAST(user1_guid AS VarChar(36)) + CAST(user2_guid AS VarChar(36)), @userGuid, '') AS uniqueidentifier) AS UserId FROM espace_UserConnection WHERE (user1_guid = @userGuid) OR (user2_guid = @userGuid))) AND (UserId IN (SELECT UserId FROM espace_ProfileProperty))
I have a SQL query that goes like this "select * from Product where ProductID in (1,2,3)" How can i create a stored procedure where a single input parameter can take multiple values? Can anyone help me with this?
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) AS
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?
ALTER PROC [dbo].[sp_GetInvitationStatusTest] ( @invited_by NVARCHAR (50) ) AS BEGIN -- SELECT * FROM dbo.Merck_Acronym_Invitations WHERE invited_by=@invited_by select distinct t1.invited_isid as 'ISID', t1.invited_name as 'NAME',t1.invitation_status as 'STATUS',
If you look at the where clause i have invited by , i get the desired output if i just provide 1 name in the execution such as exec [dbo].[sp_GetInvitationStatusTest] 'marfilj' But my requirement is to make the procedure work with more than one input variable such as exec [dbo].[sp_GetInvitationStatusTest] 'marfilj','sujith' now i should get the output for 2 people but if i run this i receive the following error Procedure or function sp_GetInvitationStatusTest has too many arguments specified.
how to make my procedure work with more than 1 input variable?
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.
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?
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 have a table that has multiple postal codes in one of the columns. Those have to be split up one per line and stored in another table. The zip codes are comma seperated. Is there a function that can do this...?
Example data in ZipCodeTable. (Name and ZipCode are 2 columns in a table)
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.
Hi, I have a difficult case that I need to solve. I will try to be the very clear explaining my problem:
I have a sql query which brings me many records. This records have a column in common which have the same value (COL1)
There is a second column (COL2) which has different values bewteen these records. I need to concatenate values from the second column in records with same value in COL1. And I need only one record of the ones that have the same values. If two records have the same COL1 value, only one row should be in my result.
Let me give you an example: COL1 COL2 RECORD1 1-A HHH RECORD2 1-A GGG RECORD3 1-B LLL RECORD4 1-B MMM RECORD4 1-B OOO RECORD5 1-C NNN
Me result should be:
COL1 COL2 RECORD 1-A HHHGGG RECORD 1-B LLLMMMOOO RECORD 1-C NNN
It is clear what I need? I dont know if I can solve it through sql or any function inside SSIS. Thanks for any help you can give me.
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:
I need to write a select query that gets the values of all columns but only returns unique sites because some sites are load balanced across several servers and where this is the case I don't want the site to appear multiple times in the list.
12.) Now you have two different tables - each with two columns.Table #1Single Column2 rows with a value equal to 1 and 2Table #2Single column2 rows with a value equal to 2 and 4Construct a statement returning in a single column all the valuescontained, but not the common values.This is another question that I got in an interview, I missedit.......Thanks,Tim
Hi, I have a table called geofence. It has a primary key geofence_id. Each geofence consists of a set of latitudes and latitudes. So I defined two columns latitude and longitude and their type is varchar. I want to store all latitude/longitude values as a comma separated values in latitude/longitude columns So in general how do people implement these types of requirements in relational databases?
i have a report with contains preview of percentage columns example of percentage of student marks in perticular subject like 95%. and if suppose any student not attend any test i have to dispaly like not attended statement.
so i have display two fields like 95% and not attended statement in same column, i given Cstr(Fields!Data.Value), it gives two fields with contains not attended statement of perticular query and it dispalys 0.95 % . but i need 95% and not attended statement for perticular query in same column.
is there any solution for dispalying string and percentage values in single column for given perticular query and those two values are disply same result compare with preview at the time of export to excel sheet
It is possible to alter multiple columns within a single alter table statement? I have got the following URL that tells it is not possible to alter multiple columns within in signle alert table statement. http://www.blogcoward.com/archive/2005/05/09/234.aspx[^] Does anyone know about that?
With the below query iam able to retrieve all the tables invloved in a stored proc. But, what I want to display the table names as comma separated list for each table.
