Transact SQL :: Determining Procedure Variable Type?

May 12, 2015

I am building as Search page whereby a user passes in a variable and depending on the variable type, different results will come back ...if the search criteria is '123 somewhere' it would be a string and we would search the address field.  If the search criteria is '123' i want to search the address field as well as the id field.that being said, in TSQL is there a way to determine if the variable coming in is a string or an int?

SQL 2012 :: SSIS - Import Date As Variable From Excel File

Feb 5, 2015

I am using vs 2010 and I have an .xls file that I am trying to import into SQL Server 2012, and I have most of it figured out, but I have a date field that is giving me problems, and what I would like to do is put that date in a variable so I can add it to every record in my SQL Table.

I am using a SQL Task Editor with an excel connection and I have no problem getting other data from the excel document and putting into my variable, its just the date that I have problems.

SQL 2012 :: Buffer Cache And PLE (Page Life Expectancy) Query

Aug 17, 2015

I'm getting an alert which states that both my Buffer Cache Hit Ratio and PLE are low on one of my SQL Servers though I'm not sure how to correctly check this.

I ran:

SELECT object_name, counter_name, cntr_value
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE [object_name] LIKE '%Buffer Manager%'
AND [counter_name] = 'Buffer cache hit ratio'

Which gives me the Buffer Cache Hit Ratio, cntr_Value of 9 though its constantly dipping between 3-3000 and is never steady and I'm unsure if this is normal.

I also ran:

SELECT object_name, counter_name, cntr_value
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE [object_name] LIKE '%Buffer Manager%'
AND [counter_name] = 'Page life expectancy'

Which gives me the Page life expectancy of 209061.

If these values would cause concern and if this is a normal Buffer Cache Hit Ratio? It's constantly dropping from high or low from what I can see. These scripts were pulled from another forum and I'm assuming they're showing the correct values.

Power Pivot :: Converting Text String To Numeric Value

Jun 11, 2015

I have a column that I'm trying to call into a calculated measure to determine an expected contract amount (Terms in Month). The problem is that some of the terms are defined as text strings (MTM, Coterminous, One-time) while others are numbers (12, 36, etc). The entire column is recognized as text. I have a numeric value that management has agreed would be an acceptable substitution (MTM=1, Coterminous=6) and so on. I can't however, figure out how to convert those texts to a number since they are different data types. I've tried a nested IF statement, as well as a LOOKUPVALUE..I'm doing this in Power Pivot, so am limited to DAX formulas

May 20, 2015

I've been working with powerpivot and I'm trying to compare 2 text values that are in 2 different tables.For example in TableA I have the column Value and I have the values G and C. What I'm trying to do in TableB is compare the values from TableB with TableA.BOTH values are text but I keep getting an error

=IF(TableB[Value]=TableA[Value], 1,0)

For some reason the TableB doesn't recognize TableB[Value] as text...

Setup And Upgrade :: Clarification On Non-integer Constants Are Not Allowed In ORDER BY Clause In 90

May 15, 2015

We're upgrading our SQL Server database from 2005 to 2012.I ran the Upgrade Advisory report and got this issue "Non-integer constants are not allowed in the ORDER BY clause in 90" because of the script below

gp.BRAND+' <> '+gp.CATEGORY AS 'full name',
'full name'

I tried running the same query in our test SQL Server 2012 and it ran successfully. Now I'm confuse if i still need to change it.I google the issue a bit and came across this link and mentioned this.

1.) Non-integer constants are ... constants that are not integer number.

Example: 'string1' represents
a string constant
0x01 represents
a varbinary constant
'2015-02-26 06:00:00'} represents a datetime constant

1.23 represents
a numeric constants

2) So single quotes are used to define a string constants / character string constants but SQL Server allows also to use single quotation marks use also as column identifier
SELECT ... expression AS 'Column1'
FROM ...

In this context is clear that 'Column1' is a column identifier but when used in ORDER BY : ORDER BY 'Column1' it generates confusion because SQL Server doesn't knows if it represents a string literal (character string constant) or it represents a column identifier / column name."Do I still need to change the existing code even though it's working fine in 2012? If yes, it is because of best practice reason or it will total get deprecated/not working in the future version?

SQL 2012 :: Permissions Lost After Renaming Table?

May 28, 2015

We have a process that uses the following method to move data quickly:

TableA = 600million records
TableB = 0 records

To "move" data from TableA to TableB

Rename TableA --> TableA_HOLD
Rename TableB --> TableA
Rename TableA_HOLD --> TableB

The problem with this is that after every rename, permission to the TableB is lost so we have to execute a statement to grant permission back to TableB after the process is complete.

My question is why is this necessary? Is the permission tied to the table in such a way that it can't use the name only?
