Dynamic Query alternative?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi, I was trying to create a query to get some results for next five years and need to show next five years as Column names. So whatever the year user runs this query, it gives the results for the next five years. Then I realized this was not easy as I expected but managed to implement it using Dynamic Queries.I wrote the following code Ito implement that. But I'm not sure is this the best way to do this.   SET ANSI_NULLS ON  GO  SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON  GO  CREATE PROCEDURE sp_RS_ScenariosforNext5Years  @ticker nvarchar(10),  @variable nvarchar(100)  AS  Declare @SQL varchar(1000)  SELECT @SQL = 'SELECT CASE Scenario '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + ' WHEN 'A' THEN 'case1' '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'WHEN 'B' THEN 'case2' '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'WHEN 'C' THEN 'case3' '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'WHEN 'D' THEN 'case4' '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'WHEN 'E' THEN 'case5' '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'WHEN 'F' THEN 'case6' '  SELECT @SQL = @SQL + 'WHEN 'G'

Dynamic SQL query cannot store more than 4000 characters even with NVARCHAR(MAX)

Hello, everyone. I am having a rather strange problem when building a dynamic query in SQL Server. I declare a variable of NVARCHAR(MAX) type, and build some queries into it, running them later with sp_executesql. One or two of these queries are so large that they surpass the 4000 char limit that, supposedly, NVARCHAR(MAX) overcomes. However, I still am having the classic problem of storing the whole query inside the variable! I use SQL Server 2008. All the documentation online I checked states that the solution is just using NVARCHAR(MAX) and the problem should not happen. How can this keep happening?

Dynamic Linq query?

Please excuse my rookiness but is it possible to make a Linq query dynamic in the following pseduo code (to show what I'm trying to do)Dim objCustomoer = (From c In dc.CustomerLocation _ Where c.customerID = a1 _ And { c.zip = a2  OR  c.city = a3  OR  c.state = a4} _                             Select c).ToList() where a2 and a3  and a4 are being populated from user controls and only one will apply.  So query is done by state,  zip or by city, but not by more than one, so the other two would be null.  So the operator is really "OR" but I haven't found anything on a "or" or "whereOr" operator.  How can I accomplish this?

Problems writing a dynamic L2E query

I'm trying to re-work a L2E query to be more dynamic, but I'm not having much luck. Basically, I have two parameters (and many more to come, just laying the foundation), and the parameters are both optional from a user-endpoint.Originally I wrote this static expression:int personnelId = 1234; int divisionId = 1234; var results = (from a in ctx.Attendees from d in a.Divisions join p in ctx.Personnel on a.PersonnelID equals p.PersonnelID where a.PersonnelID == personnelId && d.DivisionID == divisionId select new Attendee { firstName = a.FirstName, lastName = a.LastName });Attendee is a POCO. After I wrote this, I realized that if personnelId or divisionId weren't passed in (or if just one were passed in) I'd want a different result set. I'm conceptualizing the idea like this (doesn't compile, but you get the drift):var results = (from a in ctx.Attendees select new Attendee { firstName = p.FirstName, lastName = p.LastName }); if (personnelId != null) { results = (from a in results join p in ctx.Personnel on a.PersonnelID equals p.PersonnelID where a.PersonnelID == personnelId select a); } if (divisionId != null) { results = (from a in results from d in a.Divisions where d.DivisionID == divisionId select a); } results = results.ToList();Doesn't work well though, because my

Parse XML To build Dynamic Query

Hi All, I am trying to figure out the best way to handle a scenario where I will be passed XML that will contain criteria for a search. If the user has selected specific filters then those will be sent in the XML and if there is a section that they left unfiltered then it will not be present in the XML (Which would mean everything for that filter should be returned). My question is around the best process to shred the XML and build a dynamic query out of what i am getting out of the XML object. Is there a better way to handle this scenario? Here is my current approach: Shred the XML and put the filtered data into Global Temp Tables so that I can use them to build my dynamic query. Use those temp tables to create "Where Exists" Criteria within the query to filter down the results based on what was passed to me in XML. If one of the search criteria sections wasn't filtered the temp table would have zero rows and I wouldn't add that to the where clause with an exists statement. I used FOR XML PATH('') in the queries to roll up the data into comma separated values. Build the test schema / objects:   -------------------------------------------------------- --Build Test Schema to demonstrate XML Parsing -------------------------------------------------------- SET NOCOUNT ON; IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.objects WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[test].[Products]
