Uniquely identifying each record in table like ROWID in Oracle


Hi all,

 Is there any direct equivalent concept of Oracles ,ROWID  in SQL Server. As you might be knowing that ROWID is the unique hex number given to each record of a table in Oracle. The column is not added explicitly , automatically it will come .. and we can do certain queries using ROWID ..

Please let me know ,is there any equal concept in SQL Server. I verifyied , NEWID(),GUID() ... etc concepts ..

NOTE: I don't want to add the column to the table EXPLICITLY ...

Please let us know if there is any ALTERNATE way ...

Thans in advance

Getting counts by 2nd Date Dimension Attribute with Snapshot Style Fact Table

  I have an MDX question finding hard to solve.  I have a Snapshot Fact Table with a snapshot of the records in the source system for each batch date.  All records in the fact table are assigned the batch date with the batch date key.  There are many records for each day and each batch date is an entire copy of the source records.  So, the grain of the fact table is one record for each batch date that exists in the source system.  These facts rows have another date in them for when the record was entered.  This date is different from the batch date in that the batch date is based on the day the batch was processed and the entered date is based on when the record was entered.  If a record was entered many days before, its batch date will be today but its entered date will be several days ago.  Therefore each day a copy of all the records entered the previous batch date and all the records added on today's batch date are present. Fact Table : FactSnaphshotKey (surrogate for easier administration) BatchDateKey (link to batch date dimension – date dimension, first in dimension list so it is used for semi aggregate measures) EnteredDateKey (link to entered date dimension – date dimension) Facts Count – measure for fact table - default measure from Analysis Services cube 2 Dim

Analysis Service Process Dimension Cause : OLE DB error: OLE DB or ODBC error: ORA-00942: table or v

Dear Gurus, I'd face a "STRANGE" problem. I'm using SQL2008 connect to Oracle Data Source (OracleOldDB.1) When I process a snow-flake dimension . There is a ORA-00942 problem. But if I past the SQL Statement to a Oracle Tool . It worked without any problem. Does any body ever face this "STRANGE" problem ? And I'd try to remove this table from data-source-view and re-join it . Still same problem !!  Wilson

Avoiding a SELECT distinct query generated by SSAS when using dimension derived from fact table

Hi, I am using a dimension derived out ot a fact table and the factt able primary key is dimension key. Issue is, there are large number of rows and so many attributes. SSAS issues distinct query and it takes large amount of time. Without the distinct statement, query takes only 3 min for 4 million rows. With the distinct, it takes 20 min. Becuase the fact primary key is the dimension key there is no need of a distinct statement. I know there is a option in the dimension to say "By Table" to avoid this. But unfortuantely, i breach the 4 GB limit for strings. Any suggestions for optimization? Thanks,  Sambath

Update a record in a table?

HiI've been playing around with MVC lately, and was wondering how you could do this:I have a view that displays a list of products, and against each product is a list of categories (in a combobox). I'm trying to find out how you can update a product's category when you select a category in the list. I know you could do something fairly simple with jQuery, but I'm trying to understand how submitting forms works with MVC.Here's what I currently have:// Controller public ActionResult Index() { List<Product> products = _productRepository.GetProducts(); List<ProductCategory> categories = _productRepository.GetCategories(); ProductsViewModel viewModel = new ProductsViewModel { Products = products, ProductCategories = new SelectList(categories, "Id", "Description") }; return View(viewModel); } // ViewModel public class ProductsViewModel { public List<Product> Products { get; set; } public SelectList ProductCategories { get; set; } } // View <% using (Html.BeginForm()) { %> <table> <tr> <th>Id</th> <th>Description</th> <th>Category</th> </tr> <% foreach (var product in Model.Products) { %> <tr> <td><%: product.Id%></td> <td><%:

Possible to send an email if a record is added to a table?

I would like to be able to send an email notification if a website user inserts a new record in a table.  This will be a relatively rare occurrence so it would be very useful to have the notification as opposed to having my users check my summary page that lists all the IDs that have a record in this table. I googled but I must not be hitting on the right keywords or phrase to find the answer to this question. Thanks in advance for 1) letting me know if this is possible (I'm version ASP.NET 2.0 and using VB with a SQL Server database) and/or 2) pointing me in the right direction to find out how to do it if it is possible. Thanks! 

Delete one table record if the no more record are associated from another table

Hello All,   In my scenario I have two tables say Table A and Table B. Table A has 3 records   Id Name Value 1 ABC 123 2 XYZ 456 3 PQR 789   Now in another table I have 4 records   Id FName Lname TableAID 101 ABC XYZ 1 102 AAA BBB 1 103 XXX YYY 1 104 PPP QQQ 2   Now I display table B records in gridview when I select 3 records say id 101,102,103 and click on delete button. Table B selected records should be deleted and its working fine.   The problem is that in Table A record 1 ABC 123 is only associated with that many records so when I delete that record from Table B at that time the associated record in Table A should also be deleted as no more association with that record in Table B.   So please give me query or appropriate solution for that.

Bridge Table dimension or fact? updating from snapshots



Scenario: Bank Accounts and Customers. One Account can have many customers and many customers can have one joint Account. so its Many to Many relationship.

Special Scenaio: Bank provide us daily snapshot of all thier dimensions and facts, every night thier ETL run, and newsnapshot is available, previous is gone.

I am using SCD Transformation to update the dimensions, Type 1 for all the columns.

Tables1: DimAccounts (AccountsID(PK))

Table2:DimCustomers (CustomerID(PK))

Table3:DimBridge (AccountID (FK), CustomerID(FK), RelationShip (varchar10))

Question1: Are we supposed to treat bridge tables as Dimensions or Facts?

Question2:If it is to be treated as Dimension, How would I apply SCD Wizard to it, Since there are two business keys involved?

Question3: Do i need surrogate key in Bridge Table, like i have in other dimensions?

Thank You
