C# How to check prammatically if null value exists in database table (using stored procedure)?

  
Folks!

How to programattically check if null value exists in database table (using stored procedure)?

I know it's possble in the Query Analyzer (see last SQL query batch statements)?

But how can I pass null value as parameter to the database stored procedure programattically using C#?

Although I can check for empty column (the following code passes string.Empty as parameter but how to pass null value?), I cannot check for null value in the following code snippet:

SQL Queries:

USE [master]
GO

IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sys.databases WHERE name = 'ExampleDatabase')
DROP DATABASE [ExampleDatabase];
GO

CREATE DATABASE [ExampleDatabase];
GO

USE [ExampleDatabase];
GO

IF EXISTS (SELECT NAME FROM SYS.TABLES WHERE NAME = 'ExampleTable')
DROP TABLE dbo.ExampleTable;
GO

CREATE TABLE
dbo.ExampleTable
(
ID INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
UserID INT NULL,
Name NVARCHAR(50) NULL,
DateOfBirth DATETIME,
IsActive BIT,
Phone NVARCHAR(50) NULL,
Fax NVARCHAR(50) NULL,
CONSTRAINT PK_ID PRIMARY KEY(ID),
CONSTRAINT UNIQUE_Phone UNIQUE(Phone),
CONSTRAINT FK_UserID FOREIGN KEY(UserID) REFERENCES ExampleTable(ID),
CONSTRAINT FK_Fax FOREIGN KEY(Fax) REFERENCES ExampleTable(Phone)
);

most efficient way to check if a table exists

  

 

heys all i was wondering if we do if not exists(select*from information_schema.tables where table_type='base table' and table_name='tbl') is it slower than if not exists(select 1 from information_schema.tables where table_type='base table' and table_name='tbl') because we select less things in the inner query?

How to check if a certain XML field data already exists in a table?

  

Hi,

Let's say I have a table like this:

ID int

Data XML

...

When I insert, I want:

if(not exists(select 1 from MyTable where Data = @MyXMLString))

  insert into MyTable(Data) values(@MyXMLString)

The problem is, Data = @MyXMLString does not work because Data is XML, @MyXMLString is varchar. So, how should I do this?

Thanks.

Is there a way to check if workflow instance already exists for a particular productID in Workflow o

  
I am using Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5. I am trying to build a WF that is exposed as WCF hosted on IIS. This service is consumed by ASP.NET client. It is a very simple WF- receive info for new product "A"- send email to person 'Xyz' that new prodcut "A" is received- do some business process for product "A"- send out more notifications for product "A"Consider this scenario - - Client hits submit on asp.net page for prodcut "A"- new WF instance is created for product "A"- client can go back to the same page, edit some more info and hit save again. However, this time or for any subsequent "Saves",  I do not want to create a new WF instance for product "A".I can check to see if a WF instance exists for product "A" on the client side before calling the service operation. However, I want to see if there is a way to do this in WF or WorkflowServiceHost, as I don't want to add this logic to client. First acitvity in WF has to be receive activity with CanCreateInstance = true, so not sure how I can do this check in WF itself.Also, I have another stupid question, when using WF exposed as WCF service, do we have to implement all service operations using WF? What if I have some service operations that just involves checking some business logic? Do I implement this in a

How to change connection string of a pivot table pointing to SSAS 2005 cube using excel 2003?

  
Hi All,I am not sure if I should have posted this query to Excel 2003 forum. But posting it here as it applies to SSAS 2005 as well.Ok, let me give the background before I tell the actual problem.We have users on ABC domain and the SSAS server is also on ABC domain. Users on this domain can acess the excel pivots by connecting to cube to browse the data. They leave the Userid & password field blank while they setup the connection string and it works fine. Thanks to windows authentication that takes the credentials of user logged in. Let's say I have two users A and B, they login to ABC domain with their own windows ids.  Now when user A creates a excel file having a cube pivot and then sends this file to user B, user B can refresh and modify the same excel file (he can select new measures to pivot, new hierarchies in filters and so on).Now, let's say I have another user, user C. He has excel 2003 installed on his PC and cannot migrate to excel 2007. He is on different domain XYZ but have a valid windows userid on domain ABC. The domain ABC & XYZ can not be setup to have trusted relationship. Now, when user A sends the same excel file to user C. When user C opens the file and try to refresh it or try to modify the pivot by selecting/deselecting any elements, he gets below error prompt:" An error was encountered in the transport layer." and "Errors in the
