Slow performance when searching in "any part of field" of a SQL Server database using a Microsoft Ac

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
We have just migrated our back end database from Access to MS SQL Server 2008 R2. We have noticed better performance on our searches - unless we select to search in "any part of field" in Access (with Access' built-in search function - we use a mix of Access 2003 and 2007). This takes nearly 20 seconds to find the result, whereas before the migration it was taking 5-7 seconds (compared to instant results we now experience when searching for whole fields). The main fields we search are not large - usually just two words. Obviously it is better to search for a whole or start of a field, but this is not always possible. The contractor that assisted us in this project has told us that this "is just the way SQL works with Access". Is this really true? I find it hard to believe two MS products would have such a big issue between them. I presumed using SQL with an Access front end would be a common setup, which is why I thought this must be a problem with our setup. Is there any way to fix this speed issue?

Upsize Your Database: Convert Your Microsoft Access Application to Take Advantage of SQL Server 7.0

  

What if you need to convert an existing Microsoft Access 97 database application into a true client-server application that is based on a SQL Server back end? If you know a little about Visual Basic and SQL Server, it's easy to make your app take advantage of the power and scalability provided by SQL Server 7.0. Using some concrete code examples, this article takes you step by step through converting the native Jet queries in your Access application into stored procedures and pass-through queries that SQL Server can use. You'll also learn how to pass on parameters when your client-server app calls these SQL Server stored procedures and queries.

Windows 7 CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 26

  
Hi I have migrated to a new computer using Windows 7, 6 gig memory, I7 chip (old machine had xp) and have installed Visual Studio 2008 and  SQL Server 2008 R2.  I get CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 262) when I try to create a new database.  Other posts (example:http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/28fee0ed-c7e2-40df-8f79-f513c9848f09/) work for Vista but I cannot find how to grant permissions.  Run as administrator (vista fix) does not work. I have admin privaleges on my machine.  There are no other accounts.    What do I need to do to update privaleges? Thanks and have a nice day.

Problem trying to attach database file to Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

  
I was trying to attach a database to SQL Server MGT Studio and got an exception error.  The message stated that the database file I was trying to attach could not be opened because it was version 661.  The SQL Server shows to support version 655 and earlier.  It states that a downgrade path is not supported. Question:  Is there some download ; fix; I can make to SQL Server 2008 that will allow me to attach the version 661????  I am not technical at all.  Please speak slowly.  :)  Thanks

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 does not list all tables in database

  
When logging into SSMS 2008 to a SQL2008 database when I expand the tables in a database I only see a few tables listed.  I can login to the same instance with SSMS 2005 and all of the tables are there.  Is there a reason why this is this way?

I can do a select * from in a query window for any of the tables in the database via SSMS 2008 as well and it work fine.  It just does not display the tables.

Error when synchronizing a 2008SP1 Database with a 2008R2 database using Microsoft SQL Server Manag

  

I am trying to synchronize two databases and getting the below error.  I am using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 to sync the two databases.  One of the databases is running Analysis Services 2008SP1 (the source) and the other is running Analysis Services 2008R2 (the destination).  I have tried the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Backward Compatibility tool and that did not work.  My thought is that the different versions are causing a conflict.  The surprising thing is that it appears to be working and then fails.  Keep in mind I am using an administrator account.  Can someone please advise?

Thanks,  A.L.

Slow performance with SQL Server 2005 executing parameterized queries with LIKE and an aggregate com

  

We have a slow-performing query and, after some analysis, have narrowed the cause down to using parametrized queries in conjunction with LIKE and aggregate comparisons used in the WHERE clause.  If we use a non-parametrized query (but keep the WHERE clause the same) the query performs much faster and, in fact, executes a different plan.  Using OPTIMIZE FOR UNKNOWN is not an option for us as we are using SQL Server 2005.  Obviously, we'd like to use parametrized queries to prevent SQL injection but the slow perf is unacceptable.  We need the LIKE to support wildcard scenarios.  If we need to we'll use dynamic SQL (scrubbed as much as we can) in lieu of parametrized queries.  We're wondering, however, is there another option that would give us the perf without sacrificing safety?  I can provide a sample database, query, plans, etc. if necessary...I'm assuming SQL Server generates a less efficient plan with the parametrized query as it can't make any assumptions about the parameter values...

MS SQL Server: Disconnect Users From Database - Kill User Session

Publishing SQL Server Database using Publishing Wizard : Tips & Tricks

  
We can use SQL Server Publishing Wizard to deploy our local Database to remote hosting server/production server.This feature is available in SQL Server 2008/VWD 2008.

Below is the complete step by step guide of this process.

CLR Integration With Microsoft SQL Server

  
Transact-SQL provides as much flexibility as possible but, because it is not a real programming language, it has some shortcomings about many issues (memory management, exception handling, debugging, file processing (or streaming), object-orientation (classes), or thread management). Transact-SQL also lacks features of normal libraries (arrays, collections, serialization, expressions, or string manipulations, etc).

SQL Server Database Transaction

  
A transaction is a group of SQL commands executed together as a single component of work to be accomplished. If all of these commands succeed, then a transaction is committed - the changes to the data are made final. If any of the commands within a transaction fail, then the entire transaction is cancelled, or in SQL Server terms, the transaction will be rolled back.

Transactions are one of the things that keep your data safe, but they're not necessarily easy to understand. Here's some help:

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

  
User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

Database Export Wizard for ASP.net and SQL Server

  
A step wizard for ASP.net to export database objects to CSV, TXT, HTML, XML, or SQL. it guides users through a few simple steps to choose a database object (table, view, or query), select columns, and export the data in any of the standard formats CSV, HTML, XML, or SQL.
