Folders or folder like equivalent in SQL Server 2008 ? for packages & stored procedures ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi,      Currently running SQL-Server 2000.  We have hundreds of stored procedures and DTS packages. We have so many it's becoming a serious challenge for names and such.  We were wondering if SQL Server 2008 has a way to 'nest' both the equivalent of DTS packages (SSIS) and stored procedures in something akin to 'folders'.  We know we have to upgrade one of these days but a version that would handle these would be much more attractive. Just getting this functionality would be worth whatever effort would be required to upgrade.   Thanks in advance for any help on this.

CLR stored procedures asssemblies working in sql server 2005 but giving issues over sql server 2008

Hi I developed CLR stored procedures assemblies using VS2005 and deployed in sql server 2005 are working fine. Currently we are migrating to sql server 2008. The same CLR assemblies are not working in 2008 version and raising following error. Here i created CLR assemblies in sql server 2008 using 'sa' user account which is having db_owner permission over 'mydatabase'. I am getting an error message like "A .NET Framework error occurred during execution of user-defined routine or aggregate". In sql logs showing messages like as -- Common language runtime (CLR) functionality initialized using CLR version v2.0.50727 from C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\. -- AppDomain 2 (mydatabase.dbo[runtime].1) created.   Please let me know what may be the cause for this type of issues. Is there any specific backward compatibility settings has to be done over sql server 2008 or sql server 2008 R2 while using 2005 CLR routines?   Thanks in advance.  

Issues with CLR Stored Procedures - SQL Server 2008


Dear members,

I really hope that someone will be able to help me.

I'm trying to create an assembly in sql 2008, for a dll i've created in c# (net 3.5 frameword).

The dll is calling a WS method, that will do some calculations.

The issues i'm having is, once I try to create the assembly, it tells me "

Msg 10301, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

Assembly 'XYZ' references assembly 'system.runtime.serialization, version=, culture=neutral, publickeytoken=b77a5c561934e089.', which is not present in the current database. SQL Server attempted to locate and automatically load the referenced assembly from the same location where referring assembly came from, but that operation has failed (reason: 2(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15105)). Please load the referenced assembly into the current database and retry your request.


" , which I do understand, and following this message, I am trying to create assembly, for the System.Runtim.Serialization dll.

But, if i try to create the dll, it tells me the following:


Warning: The Microsoft .NET Framework assembly 'system.runtime.serialization, version=, culture=neutral, publickeytoken=b77a5c561934e089, process

Howto use Visual Studo 2008 to maintain SQL Server 2005 tables and stored procedures


I I have an ASP.Net web site I built using Visual Studio 2008.  I also have a SQL 2005 database I use with this web site.  I presently use MS SQL Server MManagement Studio Express to add / modify SQL tables, stored procedures, etc. 

But I want to now maintain my SQL datbase directly from my Visual Studo 2008 where I maintain my ASP,Net web site.  I have created a script from my QL DB that creates all my existing tables and stored procedures.  Can I somehow run this to create the necessary source files within VS 2008?

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition - GUI to set permissions on stored procedures

Hi there, I have SQL Serve 2005 Express Edition (Build 2600: Service Pack 3) installed; I also have the Management Console installed.

SQL Server 2005 Stored Procedures

  I had written a stored proc. to get date & time in Std. format  dd/mm/yy hh:mm:ss AM/PM. I wanted that  when no value is given to the stored procedure it should produce current date & time in the above std. format & when some date is given , it should display that date in above std. format.

Stored procedures not found in Analysis Server

Hi, it seems that my AS2008R2 installation got corrupted and I don't find any way to repair it. AS doesn't "find" stored procedures. Nor stored procedures written by me, nor system stored procedures, nor Data Mining stored procedures. E.g., when I try to browse a Data Mining model I get the following error: Query (1, 6) The '[System].[Microsoft].[AnalysisServices].[System].[DataMining].[AssociationRules].[GetStatistics]' function does not exist. The problem started with my AS2008 installation. I unistalled, then re-installed. Then I upgraded to AS2008R2. Then I repaired the AS2008R2 installation. Nothing ! I don't want to reinstall the server. Please help ! Thanks          Teodoro Marinucci

SQL Server 2008 - Stored Procedure


I work for a software manufacturing company and I am doing a project for a very large potential customer.  This customer has a SQL Server 2008 DB and claims that his emplpyee's can only access the DB (read or write) using a stored procedure.  Now the catch is we cant re-write the software to accomidate this customer, and our requests to see the stored procedure to see how hes using it have failed.  But I need to be able to access his DB at no additional cost to the customer.  Is there any way to call a SP using a Data Source Driver?  Or any other ideas, I need an answer for this cutomer today :(

CLR Stored Procedure that invokes the CRM Web service SQL Server 2008 R2



I have created a CLR stored procedure that invokes the CRM Web service to delete records, the code complies fine but when I try to deploy it it just times out. I feel that I am missing something, has anyone any suggestions.

There are a number of blogs about the subject of invoking Web services from a CLR stored procedure but they are about doing it in 2005, is the procedure the same?



Looking for Client Query Analyzer (SQL Server 2008) or Equivalent Reporting Tools


I've recently upgraded from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008.  My accounting and marketing team is skilled and has been using SQL Query Analyzer for years to run smaller queries and build small Crystal Reports.  Unfortunately Query Analyzer is now bundled into the management studio.  That's a bit too much software for this level of power users.

Is there a client-side query analyzer for SQL Server 2008?  I'd rather use a Microsoft product than a 3rd party tool, but I suppose I could do that too.  Looking for something simple that will:

1.  Show users the database tables and/or views

2.  Run queries

Perhaps query analyzer isn't the way to go and my team needs a different reporting system.  If this is the way MS is heading, could you direct me towards a product or service that allows power users to get the information they need?  They will still need to look at raw data to build Crystal Reports though.

Restoring sql server database with stored procedures



I have a database that needs restoring to get a website up and running.  I am not a ASP developer (am PHP) and therefore have never used SQL Server before.

I have just tried to import one of the tables from a .txt file using SQL Server Management Studio 8 and instead of the column names being inputed, it just has "column 0", "column 1" etc.  I have noticed that I have a folder full of stored procedures, am I supposed to import these first?  Im not 100% what these stored procedures are for or the best way for me to import all this data successfully as I have so many files it will take forever to import one by one.  I dont mind doing it one by one if I have to but just want to ensure I do it all correctly first time!

Many thanks

Can't SSRS 2008 handle stored procedures which return multiple tables?

Any suggestion?

Thank you,


Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 SSIS packages


My home machine has sql 2005  and Visual Studio 2005 installed. I uninstalled VS 2005 (RTM) and installed VS 2008 (RTM) in its place. I then found that the SSIS templates were missing. Lesson: don't uninstall VS 2005 if you want to use SSIS 2005!


1. Is there any "workaround" to this issue?


2. (If the answer to 1 is "No") I will install VS 2008 side-by-side with VS 2005 on the same box.  When the SSIS issue is finally resolved, can I uninstall VS 2005 without doing damage to the VS 2008 install?
